About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

This BnB is a seasonal project on a cycling route in a quiet part of Victoria on Vancouver Island. It is open all year around but busiest in the summer months. There is a gorgeous garden to care for as well as a veggie plot, and the waterfront which takes constant care. Guests create the regular maintenance work, and big projects like window washing and computer projects are here for downtimes when no guests are here.

I run this BnB with great joy. However I am also a dragon boater and a musician and a grandmother, so I need a little help now and then as you can understand. This seems to me to be an opportunity for someone who might be looking to take a hospitality course at Royal Roads University, or another studying opportunity in this area. (near Victoria, BC)

As this is a running BnB we have a flexible situation. Certainly a tent in our "back 40" ( wild yard away from the cultured garden) is always an option, with access to the indoor bathroom. We often have a lovely private room as well.

This opportunity is a bit of both - we try to accommodate all tastes and needs.
