Welcome to our rustic in-nature retreat and resort on the Sunshine Coast, British Columbia.
You'll find us nestled between beautiful mountains and lakes. Our place includes a lagoon, a private dock, forest trails, and a wildlife sanctuary - some of our residents include hundreds of birds, as well as beavers, turtles, deer, and otters, to name a few.
We run a small seasonal family business, which includes our accommodations, our Trattoria Italiana restaurant, as well as canoe and stand-up-paddle-board rentals. Our season runs from Spring through Fall.
Our family immigrated from Italy 29 years ago. We now live in a natural paradise, and are passionate about nature, food, and birds. We try to live in touch with the wilderness and our natural surroundings - we also like to grow gardens with veggies, flowers, and herbs, as well as keep birds, including chickens, turkeys, peacocks, pheasants, quail, pigeons, doves, and much more! We also have a resident dog & two resident cats.

An exchange & work season with us can be beneficial in many ways - besides of course great memories, the opportunity to explore this beautiful natural paradise which surrounds us, and new friendships!! You may also pick up some new skills along the way... depending what we're up to on the "help" front during your stay (as there is so much variety from season to season), you may learn some gardening or landscaping skills, a bit of carpentry, some bartending or housekeeping skills, about keeping birds, or about a special variety of fancy chicken! At the right time of year, you may also learn about local wild foods and their harvest - such as wild-berries, mushrooms, or seafood.

We tend to need help with a large variety of tasks around here, and we have a handful of paid seasonal positions each year for successful applicants. Generally these positions require a commitment of 5 - 7 months.
For those interested in these positions, please note that you must hold a valid work visas at the time of submitting your application, and if there is a position that you are interested in and you feel that you are qualified for, please specify so in your initial email, and send along as much info as you feel to include - such as your cv, resume, social media profile links, or otherwise. We offer staff accommodations plus discounted meals at staff rates, as well as regular pay at industry rates. We may require references, in-person interviews, or a trial period based on exchange agreements, prior to actual hiring.
Accommodations can be varied, depending on our occupancy, your position, the length of your stay, and the time of year.
The most common situation would be that you have a private room or shared dorm, in a shared 4-bedroom volunteer / staff trailer, or 3-bedroom staff house. You would share a communal yard space or deck, kitchen, washroom, and living room. Accommodations are simple & basic, but comfortable. Contriibution towards bills may be asked depending on usage.
We also ask that our staff are responsible and tidy, and work together to maintain a clean and organized living space at all times, respecting one another, all communal spaces, and treating the space as if it were your own. Cleaning duties are assigned on a rotational basis, and we expect them to be honoured, outside of your working hours.
There's lots to explore, so you will never get bored during your time off!!
We are surrounded by a network of great hiking and cycling trails, including the Suncoaster Trail and world-famous Skookumchuck Narrows, as well as many many others. Chill out on one of our docks, read a book, take in some sun, swim in the lake, or borrow one of our canoes and head out to explore her channels, islands, and rope swings! Head into one of the small surrounding towns, or check out the local marine or forest parks.
We are located 15 minutes drive away from any town centers, and public transportation is extremely limited, so please come prepared to be away from shops for several days at a time.
