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.

Help in the house
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.
We have some general maintenance project like painting and cleaning. Some gardening including yard work and in the small vegetable garden. We may also need someone to pet sit our two dogs, two cats, two doves, and four chickens while we are away.

The guest house is two bedrooms and furnished. It affords privacy to guests. It has a bathroom, living area, and small kitchen. Wifi from the house will reach the front part of the guest house as well as the porch.
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.
