Update December 2020:
I'm able to host someone starting January who is maybe Covid stranded or is still looking for a place.
The B&B is closed and there are also no tours till April (= no guests).
"Work" till then is mostly limited to daily routines, social media, household, gardening and help with my boys (on weekends). That said, I'm still planning to do some filming and photography weather permitting.
If you have experience with image editing and/or video editing then you are welcome to help me with that too.
I'm also planning some smaller building projects so if you have experience in building, DIY that would be great.
I have very good internet here so I can host digital nomads.
Just realize that the winter months here are very quiet and often rainy.
I'm also open for applications for next season, May-October yet I probably won't be able to make any decision till maybe February 2021 as I have no idea at this stage if Covid cancels another season for me or not.
my name is Rolf, I'm 54 years, a single dad, have my two boys at weekends (9/ 10(Down Syndrome)) and run a small, private and personal B&B with only 2 suites and offer photo tours (max. 4 guests) to watch bears, whales, sea otters and other wildlife.
Everything here is done small, individual and private.
I'm looking for somebody who is flexible, enjoys the tranquillity and who is able to do stuff whatever needs to be done.
The expected work is to greet the guests at arrival, prepare the suite (normally only every 3-5 days), prepare breakfast (if guests not on tour with me) and some easy food (mostly cutting vegetables, no cooking) for the tours.
If you want to help me with photography and video related "stuff" as well as with my FB and Instagram that's much appreciated too. I also have a big garden which you are welcome to maintain if you want.
Whenever I have space on tours you are welcome to come with me.
You will enjoy a lot of freedom and also a lot of time for yourself as I'm normally out in the main season every day.
The property is 2.2 acres. I sometimes have two horses here from my neighbour. You stay either in the house in your own room or if you prefer then you also could stay in a beautiful large yurt in the garden. We would need to share the shower/bathroom in the house. I'm trying to get a toilet to the yurt but couldn't find a solution yet.
I'm a full-time pro photographer for 35+ years. I'm originally from Germany and immigrated about 20 years ago to Canada. I fell in love with this place 30 years ago and live here now permanently for about 16 years.
I have two boys (8/9) who are normally here on weekends, less in the summer when it gets too busy. My older son has down syndrome, which adds something special to the mix.
I'm also fairly active on Instagram to show my images about this beautiful region and the wildlife.
My workaways live here with me, they become part of the family and I don't see them as "workers". For me, it is important that we are a good team and that you are happy here as well. You won't have a "boss" looking over you which gives you a lot of freedom.
I used to only have one person helping me but I'm always open to getting somebody additional if we decide so.
I normally have an excellent relationship with the people helping me and we became close friends.
I prefer somebody who wants to stay all summer May/June till October or longer if wanted.

This is a beautiful area to be, rich in First Nations culture, lots of wildlife and nature. it is a quiet place and it is NOT a place for party and social "animals". If you ok with staying busy by yourself but also ok with having great guests around you then I think you would fit here very much.
So far I had mostly referrals from my international friends helping me during the summer month and with most of them I became close friends and we had an awesome time together. Now I'm trying workaway too. While I would prefer somebody mid age with some life experiences, that said, as an out of the box thinker I'm also open to young people.
All the tips are going towards you.
For me it is important that everybody is happy being here. That everybody has a good time while everything gets done what needs to get done at the same time.

My main season starts in May and it is getting busy from June till the beginning of October.
I do accept applications from now on for the 2021 season (IF there will be a season due to Covid?). If you are seriously interested please let me know. I only have space for 1-2 workaways during the main season.
I'm looking for somebody who wants to stay all season!!!
I'm NOT interested in somebody wanting to stay only a few weeks!!
I DO NOT accept short stays during the main season!
I'm a lot out on tours. I'm looking for someone to greet the guests, cleans the two suites I offer (about every 3-5 days) and prepares picknick style food for the tours. While it gets busy over the summer month, it is not really that much work.
If you want to help me with working on photos/videos and posting them online with Instagram and Facebook that is also appreciated but not requested.
You would be often alone at home but I also would take you with me on tours as often as I can. I would prefer somebody long term (4-5 months). I need somebody reliable who doesn't mind to talk to international guests. Somebody who is also happy being alone and not bored if not much is to do.
That said, you would come on tour whenever there is an opportunity. Last season my workaway was out on the water over 20 times.
I do consider 2 helpers next season to balance the work a bit but I would discuss this with you first.
This is a workaway op for somebody who enjoys working by itself, does what needs to be done and who enjoys peace and silence over partying. The reward is a free stay, food, fun, lots of freedom and getting on very exclusive fun wildlife tours.
If you into photography, videoing, editing and social media too then that would be a perfect setup for a fun-filled stay and also a great help for myself.
You would have your private room with a bathroom which includes a shower/bathtub. You would need to share the bathroom with me and my boys when they home.
I now also have a large yurt in the garden which is also an option. Your choice.
If you like it quiet but still with stuff to do you will love it here. If you are a social party animal you won't like it here.
This here is a beautiful place overlooking the ocean. There is not much social life around Port McNeill but if you like to read and entertain yourself you will love it here.
I only have two suite, which means not more then 2 families staying at a time. While I can't take you on every photo tour, there will be opportunities for you to join me here and there.
There is lots of First Nations history around us too.
I'm looking for someone reliable and when my kids home (only on weekends) it would be great if you can help me a bit with them too. My two boys are 8+10 (Down Syndrome).
While we normally having a busy summer, it is always lots of fun hanging out with international guests. If you like gardening you will be in heaven here.
I'm a pro photographer, you can search me easily for photo tours on Northern Vancouver Island to get a better idea.
