We are Ron and Paul, a gay male couple.
Double Vaccinated and taking precautions when in public.
We recently moved onto a new property and are building a small retreat center. We are hoping to connect with aligned individuals to help out with day to day maintenance, small building projects, gardening projects, and some forest debris cleanup. 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. Our 2+acres is surrounded by forest, the garden is a mix of flowering plants, ornamentals, fruit trees, and raised beds with vegetables. This Fall is time to rearrange and redesign the garden, it's all a work in progress.
As we are new to hosting at this location we are interested in stays ranging from 4 - 14 days to start.
To start, our preference is to host solo travellers.

Our work and retreat center is based on mindfulness practices, 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 and envisioning, clearing debris from forest.
We have several out buildings, one of which contains a work room/storage 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 and running water. You would share bathroom in the main house.
We can discuss meals and sharing food/time together or you may prefer a more private experience here.
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 and we have a charging station for electric vehicles.

We have space for individuals with camper Van/ VW van sized units. We can provide electricity & water.
We are open to having pets. We live with 1 outdoor cat who thinks he owns the property, so your pet would have to be amenable to playing along.
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week
