  • Description


    We are a family of 4. I'm currently a stay a home mom/beekeeper/gardener/volunteer. Husband is working from the basement in technology. Children are 4+18m.

    We have a home in North Nanaimo with incredible views and a waterfront (yes, your own beach) place in nanoose. Both have extensive gardens and plenty of maintenance projects.

    The North Nanaimo accommodation for workaway guests would be 1 bedroom in our basement (ocean views, not dark and scary!) There is a queen sized bed, a full bathroom, home gym, and access to the rest of our home. This is where we live.

    The water front nanoose home would be a 1 bedroom+ bath+ kitchenette in the basement of the beach front property. We don't live there so for cultural exchange/food sharing/etc you'd stay with us in Nanaimo or have the option of staying there independently.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We are a typical Canadian family, he is Greek and I'm some combo of polish and Irish. I'm a music teacher and he works in technology.
    We eat dinner together daily and share stories, ideas, plans at that time. We often swim in the evening before kids go to bed at the local lake or beach.
    If you are interested in bee keeping, I'm your person. I love teaching about my bees.

  • Hébergement


    Private bedroom in basement of our home (ocean views of course). There is a queen sized bed and access to a full bathroom.

    I typically make breakfast around 730 and focus on bread, fruit and eggs. I make a bunch and let people eat as they wake up. Lunch is more free reign, I try to use up left overs and eat raw veggies and hummus. Again, more of a buffet thing.

    Dinner is roughly 530 (to accommodate crazy hungry small kids). I make a big meal and we all eat together. We are carnivores but often have at least one vegetarian dinner per week. I don't often do desert for our family unless it's a special occasion.

    Autres infos...

    We are in a place that would best suit someone with a car or enjoy biking uphill.

    We are close to amazing beaches and can see whales from our porch. There are hiking trails about 1km away from the house.

    We are fairly quiet people, we don't party, don't drink much. We do not smoke at all and would request that you don't as well.
    We work hard for ourselves, our families and the community we live in.
