    Description

    Our wellness spa in construction in Gibsons on the Sunshine Coast. We have constructed a sauna, a natural swimming pool, a grandiose hot tub, various rock walls, and 80 foot stream, and are in the final stages of completing a steam room and some , mostly as result of the wonderful help and experiences from work away guests from around the world. We would love some help continuing with these ecologically sound projects.

    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.

    We want to provide a beautiful space for people to enjoy and feel awesome in and we would love some positive contribution to making this happen.

    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.
