  • Description


    HI, I own a home where i rent the upstairs suite and i have a rental in part of the house. I have 3 grown daughters one lives in Madagascar, one that lives in town and one that is a few hours away living at college. I am NOT a motherly host type lol but I am pretty cool. :) for those that are vegetarian i am respectful and I will purchase foods that will work... but vegetarian meals will have to be prepared by you on your time (until i learn some vegetarian skills) trust me , much better thing for you to prepare then me. :) ...... I love to travel and i travel as often as i can, I enjoy meeting people learning about others and their culture. I truly believe that travel is essential to expanding the mind and opening the soul.

    right now I am in need of someone that is handy and is able to do more manual labor.

  • Help


    I am looking for help with a few different things, what i may ask of you may have to do with what your skills are. sometimes it will be yard work such as pulling weeds, or with some repairs and maintenance on the house such as power washing, gutters, painting ect. maybe some cooking, ... or maybe house upkeep such as organising cupboards ... possible dog care, walks and feeding. I own 2 dogs one is large and one is small.....

    AS life changes so plans and needs... right now... I believe that someone with handy skills and that can do more of manual labor type of work.

  • Accommodation


    depending on how long you are planing on staying will determine your accommodation. I have 1 room with 2 beds and a shared hall bath. Food will be set up much like a Hostel, cereal , toast, and milk for breakfast , lunch will be fend for yourself.. sandwich or left overs... dinner will most likely be something simple but filling ... meatloaf , spaghetti , burgers, that will be prepared by you or by myself. there will be buckets in the fridge that you can place your special items in to keep separate.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    in your time off there is downtown, the town of james island and folly beach.. there are also many other beaches and areas to see and spend time at with less then an hour drive. there is not much city public transportation but for little cost you can uber or lyft to downtown or to an area to catch a bus. and of corse their will be times that I can drop you off at a location. I do work for the county park and i have some awesome perks that allow myself and a guest into many site seeing attractions so we could go see and do a few things if you want.
