  • Descrição


    My name is Bryce (32, M) and I live in a beautiful log home surrounded by the temperate rain forests of Vancouver Island. In my opinion, I live in one of the most beautiful areas in the entire world. The air is very clean, the drinking water is amazing, the lake is crystal clear, and the forests are full of magic. The property is situated on 5 acres of forest and is only a 5 minute walk to a beautiful private beach on Cowichan Lake. There's many trails to explore either on foot or on our 4x4 ATV. The property also has a custom wood fired sauna and ice plunge that can be enjoyed whenever you like.

    I own this 4 bedroom property with some amazing friends that i've known since high school. At some points during the year they are in Central America, which leaves me to take care of this large property alone. This spring I have a few really fun projects lined up that I could use help with (more on that below). Depending on what you enjoy doing, there will always be room for someone with a good energy and a positive attitude.

    Who am I? My name is Bryce Williams and i'm originally from Halifax, Nova Scotia, but moved to Vancouver Island 6 years ago. Some of my passions are: Hiking & trail running, Surfing, Music, Dance & movement, Qi Gong, Yoga, Reading, Technology, Wood working, Gardening, and Cooking. I have a long history of traveling and I love meeting other like minded travellers to share stories and tales from all over the world. I love to cook with local in season ingredients and connect with local farmers to purchase my goods. I live a heath focused lifestyle and enjoy getting up early to connect with myself through meditation, Qi Gong, and various forms of movement. I'm also very passionate about new emerging technologies and how to navigate the new digital age we find ourselves entering.

    Oportunidades de intercâmbio cultural e aprendizado

    I would love to incorporate language learning into this energy exchange where possible. I'm currently learning Spanish and can help with your English if you like. I'm capable to teach you about our local areas heritage, including the long history of our First Nations who tended this land long before I arrived. I can teach you about our local species of plants, trees, mushrooms, and would be happy to teach you about the digital information revolution that's underway as we speak. I love sharing information and I know we can learn a lot from each other, no matter how long it is that you stay.

  • Ajuda


    My main desire would be to find someone with experience in building/woodworking OR with a passion for gardening and permaculture. With that said, whatever you enjoy doing is likely something I could use help with

    What's most important to me is that this is a good energy exchange for both parties and we both take away from this experience. I would love to connect via a video call before hand to make sure that we can help each other achieve our goals and have our needs met.

  • Acomodação


    For the right person(s), this is an opportunity of a lifetime to spend time in one of the most amazing locations in all of Canada. You would have your own clean private bedroom with a very comfortable bed and a large bathroom. The property is 18km down a dirt road from Honeymoon Bay, so the closest restaurant is about 25 minutes drive from the property. Although I love going into town on weekends to explore, check out the markets, and meet up with friends, I typically like to create higher quality meals at home. You will be free to roam and explore whenever you like, but I typically only go into town once a week.

    Having your own vehicle would be a benefit but if not I would be open to picking you up and offering weekly trips to either town or adventurous locations off the beaten path. There's endless beautiful places to explore out here.

    If you're here helping for a few hours a day, I'm happy to feed you high quality food in exchange for your time and energy. I eat both plants and animals from farmers who i've been fortunate enough to hug and shake hands with. I can accommodate whatever dietary requirements you like, but I do cook and eat high quality beef from my friend Simones farm. If you're vegan and do not like the consumption of meat, maybe this is not the best fit for you.
