Thank you for checking out our profile.
We are Ron and Paul, a gay male couple.
We live and work on the unceded territories of the Quw'utsun people, known colonially as Cowichan Valley, on Southern Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada.
We recently moved onto this 2 acre property and are building a small retreat center.
As caring for, and managing the property requires time and energy we are looking to Workaway to create opportunities for individuals to come help out with the seasonal and day to day jobs that need our attention in exchange for a safe comfortable place to pause in your travels, and enjoy Vancouver Island.
This year we are aiming to fence the property , other projects include gardening, home maintenance, painting, as well as some interior finishing woodwork.
Our location is rural and quiet, yet close enough to local amenities to not feel isolated. We are a 45 minute drive to Victoria, BC.
As we are new to hosting at this location we are interested in stays ranging from 14 - 28 days to start.
Our preference is to host solo travelers, but are open to couples if you feel especially called to be here.

Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre
Our work and retreat center is based on mindfulness practices, yoga & embodiment, consciousness and open communication. Being a mature gay couple we are interested in supporting diversity and creating safe space for individuals, in a world that doesn't always feel safe.
Currently work would include garden & yard maintenance, clearing debris and invasive species from forest area, some interior jobs.
We have several out buildings, one of which contains a work/storgae room as well as a 10' x10' bedroom, with queen bed, heated and cozy, with windows into the forest, this would be your private space, with easy access to your own compact fridge, running water, and WiFi. You would share bathroom in the main house.
We can discuss meals and sharing food/time together.
Excellent access to Vancouver Island’s wine country, beaches, rivers, and parks. Located on the Pacific Marine Circle Route, a scenic drive linking Cobble Hill – Victoria – Port Renfrew – Lake Cowichan. The drive can be done easily in a day, or you can choose to turn it into a multi day trip, taking in the diverse scenery. Public transport is limited, the area is good for biking. There is space on site to park your car or RV and we have a charging station for electric vehicles.
