  • Description

    Description

    I am a gardener with a unique amazing garden overlooking the sea on a granite rocky bluff.

    I am also a wood craftsman making wood utensils from the local arbutus tree.

    I am also a writer of health books, entrepreneur and always have lots happening.

    Anyone who stays here is thrilled by the beauty of the sea and mountains across the way. I have 2 grown daughters and 5 granddaughters (one daughter lives with her 3 on the island, the other, a day away). I eat a local diet as much as possible of organic foods, grass fed meat, whole grains, fruits and vegetables.

    Your own small private cabin with outdoor shower and hot water with outhouse nearby. Amazing views of the sea and mountains and surrounded by rocky moss-covered bluffs with old growth trees.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    You are a bit remote on the island... 15 minutes to town center by car down a 2-3 km dirt road to the main road and then to Mansons Landing. Very friendly for hitchhiking. Great lake on the island for swimming. I drive out 3-5 times per week.
