  • Description


    Thetis Island is the most central and accessible Island in the the Gulf Islands which are located between Vancouver Island and mainland British Columbia. We have 5 acres of waterfront property with a large house and garden which requires constant attention. We need help with yard work, home maintenance, cleaning and pet care.
    There will be a lot of leaves to take care of as well as clearing branches from wind storms. It may be wet so outdoor weather gear is a must.

    Allergy alert: We have 2 cats a dog and 3 bee hives

    Your accommodation private cabin with a loft bed , bathroom and small kitchen.
    You will be doing tasks independently and can choose your own hours.

    Thetis is a small Island of 350 people in the winter 1200 in the summer. If you enjoy solitude this is the place!
    There is No down Town --- there is one convenience store, farm stand, pub and several walking trails.
    Although it is quiet, the locals are very friendly and there is a pub. We have hosted several workaway’s and have concluded that
    because of the remoteness couples are best suited for this opportunity and if we are compatible a 2 month commitment or longer would be preferable.

We have some of the largest trees in Canada here and there are plenty of walking trails. Try kayaking or set up camp on a remote island ( we can take you there by boat in the summer. There is a lot of wildlife here; eagles, otters, whales, seals, but no bears or cougars - so you are safe to explore. It is a unique lifestyle here living in a ferry dependent community where everyone knows you by name.
