  • Description


    My wife and I live on three acres in Grand Island (Central Florida)
    We like to travel and couch surf.
    We have a large yard (about 3 acres) which includes a house and guest house. We always need maintenance and cleaning done on the property. Other projects including painting and some heavier yard work using chain saws and cutting limbs.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are able to offer lodging and some meals. We enjoy interacting with people but are very busy with work during the workweek and are not available. We are able to provide suggestions for great things to see in Florida and can guide people to areas of interest. We are 50 minutes north of Orlando and all the theme parks that it has to offer. I wouldn't say we are typical Americans, but our guests always seem to be interested in our lifestyle and philosophies. Our property is very peaceful and most guests feel staying here is a bit of a peaceful retreat.

    People who stay with us will need a car to get anywhere. We are centrally located in Florida and about an hour away from beaches and theme parks. The local area has many lakes and nice small towns. There are many hiking opportunities nearby. We have a canoe! Silver Springs, Salt Springs, Juniper Springs, and many lakes are close by if anyone likes to explore with a canoe. We even have a small sailboat. It hasn't been used in years but could be put in service with a minimum amount of effort.
