    Experience farm living out in the country with us in majestic southern Chile.

    We are childhood sweethearts who have been happily married for many decades, originally from Southern California, the Oregon Coast and down here for six years and for the balance of our years. We moved here with our daughter/dog, Spoonerita, a Border Collie, who is 13.

    It is always fun to share life's experiences and stories with our guests from different countries of the world. We have hosted 33 couchsurfers from 18 countries and always enjoyed the cultural exchange with them.

    Having only six years living experience in our adopted country, our cultural exchange to share will be our perception of Chile through the eyes of U.S. expats. Most of our friends are from Chile and other Latin America countries offering wonderful insights into this warm and friendly culture. We can share some of the traditions, food and beverages found in this interesting corner of the world.

    We have a couple of acres in the south of Chile that we are restoring back to its natural state with native vegetation to offer the wildlife a safe clean environment in which to live.
    We are removing invasive plants brought here originally by the Spaniards and later by the Germans. We will resume planting native vegetation towards the end of autumn and making some stone sun basking areas for lizards and other critters. Utilizing the running water on the property, we now have our first frog pond complete with tadpoles and soon frogs.
    We could use help with an eleven meter greenhouse kit that will be erected, irrigation system designed and raised beds built, and then the fun part, planting fruit and vegetables.

    We live 25 Km. down a beautiful road following a huge lake from Puerto Varas, out into the country. There is a bus that runs every 20 minutes a short walk from our house with a covered bus stop, yes, it rains a lot here. We have a comfortable farmhouse on an active sheep farm surrounded with a beautiful garden and a majestic view of Volcan Osorno, and the Andes mountains.
    The lake, Lago Llanquihue, is less than one Km from here and offers, in addition to it's beauty, swimming, windsurfing, fishing and kayaking. We don't fish but do have two nice kayaks we can share.
    Snowboarding/skiing on Osorno is 30 minutes away, trekking, mountaineering, rock climbing, white water rafting, fishing and cycling are popular here and can be experienced nearby.
    We are nature lovers who live a simple happy life shared with dear friends from all points of the compass. We are vegetarian and generally follow a healthy diet, but can't resist some of the local desserts and other treats found here, life's too short.
