  • Descrição


    We are a family of 4, we have two teen aged boys aged 16 & 18, we are a hockey family so sports are important to us. We like to play pickle ball and enjoy outdoor activities (fishing, boating, etc.). We also have two dogs, Piper and Bently, they are Berne-doodles, so they do not shed hair, and they do not stink! (lol) They are super friendly and love to hangout with us as much as they can! We also have a cat, she is getting on in age, she is a rag doll cat and pretty much keeps to herself..
    We're excited to share a second opportunity, especially ideal for couples or traveling pairs. Our beloved recreational property, nestled in Youbou (Lake Cowichan), offers a tranquil escape on a 4-acre island. Just a scenic hour and 20-minute drive from our home, this off-grid haven is powered by solar energy, with hot showers and adorned with charming geodesic domes. While we've already set up four domes, we're still fine-tuning some infrastructure. We warmly welcome WorkAway couples to join us in experiencing this special retreat firsthand.

    We live in a very interesting area that offers a lot of hiking, mountain biking, and outdoor opportunities, plus we are only 20 minutes from downtown Victoria and 10 minutes to world renown Bear Mountain resort. We also have a recreational property that is a private Island on Lake Cowichan , about an hour and a half drive from our home. We are currently doing a lot of work on the island as well, and would be willing share in that experience too. We have already set up 5 geodesic domes. The island is an amazing 4 acre property in the heart of Youbou (Lake Cowichan). We have Kayaks etc.

  • Ajuda


    We have a large 4 acre property, that requires upkeep, so maintaining the grounds, and house etc. (power washing, painting, yard cleaning, maintaining our pool/hot tub, and sports court etc. light cleaning etc.) General help is what we need. I do have a tractor on the property as well as a side by side with a dumping box, so getting around the property is easy!
    If you have any computer, marketing, programming or social marketing experience that would be a complete bonus!!!!!

    We can be fairly accommodating when it comes to giving you rides, we do have a 17 year old son with his own car as well so between us we can make sure to get you around.
