    Hello! My name is Daniela and I live in Roberts Creek. It is a beautiful, lush and friendly coastal town on the Sunshine Coast, 90 minutes away from Vancouver downtown by ferry and bus, Many artists, musicians, and homesteaders live in this area. We live near the forest hiking trails, miles of beaches, and a social and interesting small town. I am first generation Canadian, from an Italian father and French mother. I am a physiotherapist, a rock climber, a vocalist and piano player, as well as a spiritual person and very curious about the world. I love travelling and meeting new people, but i also like to spend time alone reading, playing or listening to music, and chilling out. I live on a large property with 3 buildings, vegetable garden and fire pit, and I like having workaways stay frequently to share my passions, introduce people to the area, share travel stories. With an old collar bone injury that i have from a car accident in Mexico, getting extra hands on deck is always welcome. I am recovering from some recurrent injuries at the moment, so rides to therapy and help around the house is sometimes on the menu.

    I have extensive knowledge of hiking, climbing, camping in BC and the rockies and at one time, had my truck kitted out for weeks and months of living outside in BC, so I know the hidden gems. I have travelled a lot to Mexico, backpacked thru Guatemala, Thaland, and Europe, and played guitar on the ramblas of Spain.

    I am easy going, adaptable, and appreciate clear communication. I know what it is like to be a traveler. and the desire to experience new areas and cultures. I am a social person, but I also make lots of time for myself.

    Important note/ i am allergic to chemical scents. fabric softener and perfumes, colognes and body sprays.

    Please contact me if you have any questions or want to chat further.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Roberts Creek has lively music scene with opportunity to play music with others, and attend art exhibitons on a regular basis. There is opportunity to learn about sustainable housing, edible plants from nature such as mushrooms and wild flowers, and a vast knowledge from its inhabitants of living off the land.

    We are also very close to Vancouver and it is easy to go by public transit to Vancouver.

    There are a lot of artists, musicians, organic farms, mushroom pickers, mountain bikers, kite surfers, and some paragliding instructors, friends of mine. The small community is very friendly and gather often in the year round for celebrations, such as Creek Daze, the mandela painting, earth day, Christmas potluck, art crawls. and music festivals. There is the opportunity to fish on lakes and the ocean, and gather and forage in the forests. I have experienced the great hikes, hot springs, areas to visit, and secluded camping spots in most of lower BC and can share my knowledge. I have travelled in many areas of the world. I am happy to share my knowledge of Italian, Spanish or French, and also able to help people wanting to practice and improve their English, or French.

    Roberts Creek is located on Squamish First Nation Land, and there is opportunity to connect with and learn to learn about our First Nations neighbors. We had a march with over 1000 attendees from the community on July 1st in support of the First Nations Band.

    The help required varies a lot depending on who you are and when you arrive. It is best to contact me with your time frame to find out more precisely what will be required at the time of your travel.

    Generally, it is a mix of outdoor gardening tasks, maintenance such as painting, driving for supplies, shopping or to the aquatic center, some help in the house and sometimes cooking.

    This Fall/ winter I will be working on yoga/exercise studio.

    I am a positive and inspired musician and health professional. This property is my dream, and sharing this little piece of heaven with with like-minded people is my goal. My future plans for the property are to ease lodging shortage on the Sunshine Coast, build healthy and sustainable living accommodations, create a healing space and a music space for collaboration, and in the distant future, to allow foster kids from the city to experience and appreciate living near the land and water, in a loving community. I am hoping to allow for the opportunity to explore and be inspired by nature and music, and living off the land.
