    INNER CITY CALGARY HOME

    A peaceful and relaxing home in the inner city of Calgary, Alberta with easy access to both the sights of the city and the Rocky Mountains. In addition, it is 157 steps to hundreds of acres of parkland. There is a bus stop 60 seconds from the front door and a train station a short walk away that is only a few stops into the city.

    My home is a ‘No smoking, No drug and No alcohol’ home. (If you smoke you can smoke outside.) I have pets...cats and dogs so an appreciation of animals is important.

    I am a professional (I work from home) woman, engaged and soon to be married. I naturally gravitate towards people who are open-hearted, generous of spirit, positive and self aware. Most of the people I surround myself with are making a positive difference in the world or are on a spiritual or personal growth journey of some kind.

    I value heart felt, emotionally intimate connections with friends and associates. I enjoy people. I am fit, eat healthily (primarily vegan) and appreciate being outdoors in nature.

    My home is ideal for you if you are a generous spirited, open hearted, emotionally mature person with a good sense of humour. (Please note: I do not host couples or friends travelling together.)

    The exchange is a work/accommodation exchange. You work five hours of work per day for one night's accommodation with food is provided. A set time each day for you to perform your work will be negotiated between the two of us upon your arrival, so that it is suitable for both of our schedules.


    Upon arrival you are required to:-

    - Fill in a Personal Details form.
    - Have your passport photocopied.


    If you think you can make a positive contribution in my home and that we have some things in common then please get in touch.


    Please make an initial enquiry by email and...

    (a) State what skills and experience you have;
    (b) State how you believe you can assist me through the workaway exchange;
    (c) State the date you would like to arrive and the length of time you would like to stay.

    You are most welcome to leave your phone number and I will call you.

    Please do not enquire without a photo or without stating how you believe you can assist.

    Thank you.

    Please note:
    Check In/Arrival Time at my home is between 1.00pm and 4.00pm. It is possible an arrival time outside of this can be negotiated so please ask and I can let you know one way or the other.


    PS: In terms of fitting into my home, my personality is most compatible with strong, capable, independent men or women who have a gentle and loving heart. I am not compatible with people who have a submissive personality or are overly passive.
