We are Ron and Paul, a gay male couple.
Double Vaccinated, boosted, and taking precautions when in public.
We recently moved onto a new property and are building a small retreat center. We are hoping to connect with aligned individuals to help out. This year we are wanting to fence the property and construct a yurt or other suitable studio structure. Other projects include gardening, home maintenance, painting, some interior finishing woodwork. Our location is rural and quiet, yet close enough to local amenities to not feel isolated. We are a 45 minute drive to Victoria, BC.
As we are new to hosting at this location we are interested in stays ranging from 7 - 14 days to start.
Our preference is to host solo travelers.

Our work and retreat center is based on mindfulness practices, consciousness and open communication. Being a mature gay couple we are interested in supporting diversity and creating safe space for individuals, in a world that doesn't always feel safe.
Currently work would include garden & yard maintenance, clearing debris from forest, some interior jobs: drywall repair, finishing work on window frame and cupboard, painting.
We have several out buildings, one of which contains a work/storgae room as well as a 10' x10' bedroom, with queen bed, heated and cozy, with windows into the forest, this would be your private space, with easy access to your own compact fridge, running water, and WiFi. You would share bathroom in the main house.
We can discuss meals and sharing food/time together or you may prefer a more private experience here.
Excellent access to Vancouver Island’s wine country, beaches, rivers, and parks. Located on the Pacific Marine Circle Route, a scenic drive linking Cobble Hill – Victoria – Port Renfrew – Lake Cowichan. The drive can be done easily in a day, or you can choose to turn it into a multi day trip, taking in the diverse scenery. Public transport is limited, the area is good for biking. There is space on site to park your car and we have a charging station for electric vehicles.

We have space for individuals with camper Van/ VW van sized units. We can provide electricity & water.
We are open to having pets. We live with 1 outdoor cat who thinks he owns the property, so your pet would have to be amenable to playing along.
