  • Description


    I am willing 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.

    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. Whem I am not too busy, I would be more than happy to be your tour guide and explore the Island with you.

    I own a 1854 original PEI farm home which I have been renovating slowly over the last decade! I would like some help in light construction and renovation while fixing up this unique historic Island home.

    In the summer, there are extensive flower gardens and I grow a large organic vegetable garden every summer. All this constantly needs a passionate gardener's touch, along with cutting grass. tending to ponds, etc.

    I can welcome some 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.

    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 from your cultural background! I am more than willing to try new culinary dishes!

    My home is gay friendly, so I ask that you be comfortable with this as well!
