  • Description


    We are located in Gibsons, on the Sunshine Coast in beautiful British Columbia. We have constructed a sauna, a natural swimming pool, a grandiose hot tub, various rock walls, an 80 foot stream, a steam room and now preparing for an architecturally cool meditation and writing space which will be used by visiting workaways. Major props go to the wonderful help and experiences from workaway guests from around the world. We would love some help continuing with these ecologically sound projects.

    Due to the pandemic, we have indefinitely closed down the business so workawayers will NOT be asked to help with the construction, maintenance, cleaning or running of any units related to the wellness retreat, spa, bnb or business.

    Our focus will be on improving the home space as well as the exterior out buildings which will be used by workaways and the owners in the future.

    It's important to note that we have engaged locally paid staff to help with the construction, maintenance, cleaning and running of the wellness business. Since the building is not running, and may not operate in the foreseeable future, we are contributing to provide a great and comfortable place for workaways to come to relax and engage with ourselves and the many various projects on the go.

    It's a beautiful 5000 square-foot house right on the ocean that is brand-new and provides for good accommodations and comfort at its finest. Great walks and hikes can be had in the area and the sunsets are the best.

    What else ...

    During time off, helpers can walk the Esplanade alongside the ocean in front of the house. It's a beautiful walk and it keeps on going and going. Here you can see eagles, seals, sea lions, lots of birds, and sometimes even dolphins and whales, though somewhat rare. :-) You can also relax after work and chill out on the beach and watch the sunset with a cold beverage. There are a couple of local places to get delicious food and drinks at in the local town called Gibsons.
