I would like to share my little piece of paradise in rural Prince Edward Island! I am a 60 yr young male who is quite active and easy going. I look forward to this opportunity to meet people from other areas of the world that would like to experience country life on the "gentle island" in eastern Canada.

Prince Edward Island has unique slower pace of life which attracts those who want to escape the rushed hectic life of big cities. Summer is alive with theatre, music concerts, ceilidhs, and many other activities to participate in. Or just take a day to enjoy the scenic coastal drives and country landscapes of our Island home. Quiet beaches are plentiful and within a 10 minute drive of my home. I would be more than happy to be your tour guide and explore the Island with you.
I own a 164 year old PEI farm home which I have been renovating over the last couple of years. I would like some help in light construction in fixing up this century plus house.
In the summer, there are extensive flower gardens and I grow a large organic vegetable garden every summer. All this constantly need a gardener's touch, along with cutting grass. tending to ponds, etc.
I welcome winter visitors as well, as this is a time when I concentrate on getting the interior of my home more finished.
The property has a small guest house which can be used for summer use. In the house there are 4 bedrooms with two bathrooms. Two living room areas and large dining room. Lots of space on the grounds if one wants to just go read for awhile.
On one side of my driveway is a heritage road that is great for taking walks through the woodland. I can provide a bicycle for beautiful rides through the countryside. I may also be able to provide a second car for my guests with driver licence.
There is a fully equipped modern kitchen which my guest would be welcome to use as well. I do like to cook, so I will do my best to provide good meals and as well, I hope that you can create some meals of your cultural background! I am more than willing to try new culinary dishes!
I am located 5 mins from the town of Kensington and 20 mins from the city of Summerside. Charlottetown is 45 mins away.
Bus and shuttle services are available to bring you across the Confederation Bridge from New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Also Charlottetown airport has connecting flights to major Canadian cities.
