  • Descripción


    We're Jay and Adam, originally from the UK, we're now living on Vancouver Island in a small village called Youbou. 5 years ago we bought our first home and our acre of land needs continuous landscaping work. We have previously used Workaway.info whilst travelling South America and have had nothing but positive experiences! We’ve hosted Workawayers from around the world on and off for the past 5 years.

    We have busy lives so labour will mostly be solitary. We appreciate self-starters :)

    We can schedule game/movie/dinner nights and hot tub hangs

    We prefer short stays; a work/vacation for you and low commitment for us with our changing schedule. Maximum one week with possibility to extend if we get along really well and our calendar permits.

    We moved to rural BC for a quieter lifestyle. The benefit of spending time at our place is to relax and take in the views of the lake, and enjoy the hiking/boating/fishing as well as cultural events that the wonderful Cowichan Valley has to offer.

    We enjoy board games, making music together, doing yoga, etc <3

    Cleaning up our acre of land; this involves:

    - Hand weeding and hedge trimming blackberries
    - Laying fabric, distributing gravel/mulch
    - Painting fences
    - Digging holes, planting trees, fencing them
    - Deep cleaning

    Work is usually physical and can be monotonous. Bring rain gear to work outside in all weather

    Please help 9am-1pm with 30 minutes break. We are pretty casual and don't expect you to break your back but have had some folks come and do minimal work. It takes love, energy and taking our rental off the market to participate in the exchange so please come willing to genuinely help us out.

    Algo más...

    We live on the side of a mountain so there are some nice walks/hikes around; there's a nice waterfall a short hike from our place and if you're adventurous you can explore elk trails on Mt Holmes. Within 30-60 minutes' drive, there is an abundance of hiking, lakes, beaches, and attractions.

    We have a hot tub we often hang out in during our cool valley evenings.

    We also have a puppy, Django! Please only contact us if you are 100% comfortable and enjoy the company of dogs as Django can be anxious if you're not confident and patient with him.

    To get around independently there is a local bus service that goes into the town of Lake Cowichan and hitchhiking around here is doable as well.

    Please mention the word JONI as the subject/intro to your application. This is so we know you have read everything and you know what to expect! :)
