    Description

    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.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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.

    Accommodation

    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!

Love this view as I enjoy a coffee in the morning!
Ah...Christmas! Another of my favorite seasons! What better way to enjoy the darker days of December than to sit by the fire and be cozy!
The start of my organic vegetable garden in June. I add seaweed between the rows for weed control and adds valuable nutrients to the soil when tilled in in the fall.
Tomato harvest from my garden... Yum!
Spring is one of my favorite times of the year! Love that fresh green lush growth coming up through our red soil.
This is a PEI 1800's flag stop train station which I brought to the property to have restored from 'soon to be' collapsing state. The railways were removed in the 1980's.
Kitters the Kat lets me live here too and help manage his kingdom!
