  • Description


    We are a family with two energetic kids and a large goofy dog living on a beautiful island off the west coast of Canada: Galiano Island, BC. We have 12 acres including almost three that are fenced with orchards and gardens. There are beautiful beaches and hikes (and a pub!) within walking distance and we have a large trailer for you to sleep in, as well as a bathroom with shower in the basement. We also have bikes available for independent transportation. We are currently seeking someone to help with numerous handy-person type homeowner projects: gardening, drywall & painting, raised bed construction, cooking, landscaping, weeding, firewood work etc.

    We all speak English, Christina, Jovan and Nova speak French, and Christina speaks Spanish. We are great at helping with learning English and our children will talk your ear off. We eat and cook a lot of natural organic foods and love teaching others to cook. Jovan is trained in mechanical and electric engineering and is a great mentor for anyone wanting to learn.

  • Hébergement


    Breakfast and lunch are generally self-serve and we will provide all groceries needed. Dinners are typically eaten as a group but not always - we will make sure you are well fed! You will have a large trailer to yourself in a private treed area (we need help setting this up) and access to a bathroom with a shower in the house. Our property is large and there is plenty of space for privacy but we also really value cultural exchange and you are always welcome/wanted in our house. We have a fire pit and a fire table outside with a large comfy patio.

    Autres infos...

    There is a great live music scene on the island including public jams and various food venues, karaoke nights, open mic nights, house concerts etc. There are so many beautiful beaches and we all swim in the summer. Plenty of beautiful hikes including a trail leading out of our backyard up a small mountain with an amazing view of the Southern Gulf Islands. If you love nature, dogs, kids and good food- you will love it here. We have had plenty of volunteers over the years through wwoofing and the exchange worked really well. Also my seven year old son is going to follow you around at times so if you aren't a fan of little kids this is not the place for you. No illegal drugs please.
