We are a family of four. Non-Smokers. I have two pre-teen girls aged 8 and 11, who are active in sports and Girl Guides. We have three cats so I hope you aren't allergic to them. We are avid hikers and we enjoy camping and kayaking. We live in a five bedroom house where you would have your own room (15'x25') and shared bathroom.

Salt Spring Island is famous for our Saturday Market where everything has been made or grown. The Market is on every Saturday from May Long Weekend, May 25th until October 31st. There is also a farmers market in the summer months on Tuesdays for fresh produce. The Island has a very strong artsy feel and has many Galleries and Artist home tours. The Island also has great access to outdoor activities. The Treehouse Cafe has live music every night during July and August. The kayaking is one of the best with many boat launching sites.

join us at fable cottage, surrounded by 400 acres of old growth forested park land (the bottom end of denman). Miles of remote beaches, where you will see whales sea lions eagles and all the clams and oysters you can eat.
This house was built in victoria in 1950 and moved to its present location in 1992 by myself and some fine freinds. It is the primary residence on the property but still needs the love and attention of skilled and semi skilled artisans in the fields of carpentry, finishing,and hundreds(thousands?) of small details... We have recently added one llama, two sheep, three pigs and ten muscovy ducks to the family, we are now constructing fences and a barn for future livestock. Now have a sweet little caravan for exploring vancouver island.Lots of bicycles, and great trails! Hoping to find travelers who would be interested in helping to renovate, and make comfortable a 1947 aluminum bus and a 1964 barth aluminum trailer for more private work stay accomodatioins

We are located in Sandspit, on Haida Gwaii, a remote archipelago in the northern part of BC. We are not located on Vancouver island.

We will be open this winter and will have a few projects for volunteers to work on, from making new garden beds, doing some deep cleaning, to doing renovations around the property.

Bayview Garden is a waterfront heritage home with a three-bedroom cottage separate from the main house.
Cheerful and comfortable, this place is at the shore of beautiful Shingle Bay in Sandspit, Haida Gwaii.
