    It was my dream to live here some day - and it became reality!! Our little island is full of charm and personality with many wonderful shops and restaurants.

    I'm a renaissance woman with many artistic talents to share. I am a Interior Designer, Business Coach and Artist always willing to find passion in all creation. I love sewing, knitting, making jewelry, or playing guitar and writing songs. If your first language is not English - great. I had to learn it myself and am great in playing with word association. Of course also DIY projects with some power tools that I can teach you how to use. I love to help you discover and further your own path.
    There is lots of work to do organizing the household with fixing and repairing things. Also the help is that of a housekeeper for us and one dog . Making sure things are tidy and clean. Cooking, cleaning and walking or hiking. There are great hiking trails to explore.

    The accommodation is a guest trailer or a separate sleeping bunk house that uses the main house bathroom.

    This post is for someone that would like to experience the West Coast Culture and people and
    loves dogs and nature. If you are interested to apply please indicate what the time frame is that you want to join me.
    I am always happy to hear from you!

    We are ourselves from another country (Germany) and appreciate the steps it takes to learn another culture, the awareness of all the detail in the language and love to show off our beautiful and interesting countryside and town of Sidney by the Sea.
