We are a family of 4, living simply and close to nature. Our home is centrally located, on the western side of the island in the cool central 'Mountain' range, in the peaceful village St Cecelia, Concordia.
We enjoy growing our own food, walking outdoor trails, spending time at the waterfalls and rivers, on the beaches and in the ocean (soaking, swimming, snorkeling, surfing, sailing).

My son 21, has a developmental delay. He is the size and stature of a twelve year old and plays like a four year old, loving dinosaurs, dolls, puzzles, drawing, reading and taking photographs with his camera.
Nathaniel, 18yrs, loves all water sports and is happy to get out on the water as often as he can, surfing and sailing in particular.
They will be interested to meet with and spend time chatting and interacting with you during your stay with us.
Private room, with a single bed, with private toilet and shower within the family home.
There will be a main meal provided most days. You will need to look after buying + preparing your own breakfast and dinner. You have access to the kitchen for this.
You can ride with us when we are going out, but will need to use taxis or buses to get around otherwise.
A three minute walk to the main road will get you a local taxi or bus in to town ($4TT & $6TT respectively). From there you can catch a bus/local taxi to most places on the island.
Being located in the center of the island, we are 10 to 30 minutes drive away from beaches and waterfalls in all directions.
There are two village 'parlours' (small shops) two minutes walk from our home and a larger supermarket 15mins walk away, or two minutes by car.
