UPDATE Oct 22: My primary long-term hosting focus is described below. For the fall season of 2019, I can offer short term stays for 1 or 2 guys for immediate short term (1 to 4 weeks) outside farm work, preparing crop spaces for winter, outside work not involving animals and not involving machinery.

Prefer to host 2 guys traveling together, but solo helpers also welcome to inquire. You put in 3 hours from 7 am to 11 am then have the rest of the day to enjoy south island attractions, using very inexpensive and convenient public transit.


My primary hosting objective is long=term - and very specifically looking for Helpers as follows: GIVE TO GET ! As a host, I am looking for serious students of ESL.

I use the find helper feature and can't for the life of me understand why you would lock out inquiries from "non premier" hosts...how is that useful to you.

I am a retired university professor living on a 4 acre hobby farm in beautiful Victoria Canada. If you are st... more inside

Wow, exploring right outside our backdoor along side the Campbell River is a beautiful place to experience Fall and Vancouver Island`s great outdoors!!! Although we live on a one acre town lot, our back yard is situated on a cliff over looking an accessible beautiful heritage river, with a nature park setting of ferns, douglas firs, maples and alder trees. You can often see deer, raccoons, bears and the silver backs of salmon and Steelhead fish jumping in the ebb and flow of the riverís pools. We have trail access to the river below, where you can enjoy listening to the sing song of many birds, tubing down the river/swimming in the heat of the summer, and trying your hand at casting for Steelhead fish. As well, our neighborhood is the access point to many scenic nature walking and biking trails. The 1st three photos are at our home and the others are nearby nearby trails and local vistas.

Hello wonderful Helpx community:-)


We are a family of 5 living near Victoria on beautiful Vancouver Island. In the past, we have traveled extensively, but we just moved into our dream home, and now with small children we are feeling a need to travel vicariously through others and meet some fabulous people. We have met so many wonderful people through helpx!

Our new home has spectacular views, a hot tub and absolutely amazing hiking trails near by. Sooke is 13 km away, and Victoria is 30 km away. The surrounding area is fantastic - ocean beaches and lakes within a few km, many parks, and a great trail system. We have a resident owl who routinely serenades us. Bus service is available, but limited. Crispin drives into Victoria daily for work, so carpooling could be a option.

Our lovely guest room is very comfortable, and has views across the garden and into the surrounding forest. Laundry and Wifi are available. We would be also open to hosting a family with children. ... more inside

Hello and Welcome to our Farm! We are people of integrity trying to live our lives with purpose, meaning and love. We have an enchanting 14 Acre Farm that we are trying to turn into more of a Healing Haven then it already is.

In return for your skills we will teach you how to milk, and we would like to teach you a lot about animal care in general (we adore talking about our animals).
