My name is Claude, I am the operations manager at the lodge. This is a lodge with yurts, cabins and suites (12 total), we are on the west coast of Vancouver Island. Port Renfrew is a beautiful town on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. We have house keeping, general helper, maintenance and a cook positions available, however we assist other departments when needed. The cook makes breakast, lunch and dinner.

We like to draw on skills from our helpers and share the skills we have ( building, cooking, etc). We are aiming for self-sufficiency. The mornings are spent with breakfast & cleaning the lodge from guests and afternoons with projects or free time.

A couple of years ago we had a great transition at the lodge to using just helpers/workawayers. It was a wonderful experience for everybody. Hosting people from around the world, drawing on their talents and teaching ours. Typically after breakfast, everyone helps clean rooms finishing by 3 pm, at which time we begin accepting our guests. We either get on with projects or go explore the area after the cleaning is done.
We are looking for singles or couples who can give us general help around the lodge. We usually have between 2-6 helpers. The bulk of the work is to clean the units so that they are ready for our guests. During busy times we also need help during breakfast/dinner. This may include cooking/serving depending on your skills.
There is also landscaping help needed and other general duties. We also usually have some kind of interesting project on the go. We typically seek a minimum of one month stay, as training takes about a week, so less than this is really not worthwhile for us. Our long-term goal is to become more self-sufficient and environmentally friendly in our operation.
As per Workaway rules for businesses, we pay for all hours worked, we include 3 meals a day however you will have to prepare your own meals. We have a staff accommodation which has three bedrooms, a communal kitchen, and a living area. The communal space area, attached to the lodge, has satellite TV. The staff area has Wi-Fi. Couples have their own space and singles may or may not need to share with one other person. The rooms are on a first come first serve basis.

Singles may have to share with one other person, couples will have their own unit. We have a small cabin, a 25ft trailer, and 3 private rooms (couples have a private room, singles may have to share with one other same gender) in the lodge. All accommodations have wi-fi. The staff room has a satellite TV. There are two shared washrooms as well as an outdoor shower.
With 160 private acres bordering provincial parklands, our view shows very few signs of civilization, making it a great site to see wildlife and get away from it all, while only a 5-minute drive to “downtown” Port Renfrew. We are just a two-hour scenic drive from either Victoria along Hwy 14, or Nanaimo, along the newly completed Pacific Rim Circle Route. Enjoy the scenery or take a hike along the way.
Being in a fairly remote location, it is important for those interested to be a bit self-entertaining. If you are used to living in the city it can be a big change. For those who like the outdoors and are not big on crowds, it is great but if not you may find yourself getting bored. Having a mode of transportation is a must. Happy Travels!
If interested, please let us know if you have any food restrictions.
