    Good Host
  • Description


    I am a Yoga, Dance, and Acrobatics instructor and teach AcroYoga in Corvallis Oregon. I enjoy eating healthy and prefer to host people with similar healthy lifestyle habits. No smoking, no alcohol, no drugs. I also prefer no pets. I'm an avid world traveler and love cultural exchanges. I've made wonderful friendships with people from many cultures through working together and sharing conversations.

    I'm based in Corvallis Oregon near OSU and lots of great hiking and nearby waterfalls!

    The accommodation is a small private barn 10x20 with a Loft and Bed for sleeping located behind a new manufactured home next to a City Park and a mile or so from downtown Corvallis. Rustic glamping setup with tent shower and compost toilet. Outside hose bib for water, no inside running water or plumbing in barn. Helpers work 7-8 hours a week for the basic accommodation, and take care of their own meals.

    I need help mostly with gardening and the yard. I can also use help from time to time with Photography and Videography for AcroYoga. I often have special projects to furnish, decorate or improve the home and the grounds to create a beautiful environment.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    In the summer especially, Corvallis Oregon is a beautiful place to go hiking and exploring. I am located a few miles from Oregon State University.

    I'm an easy-going host, but I do expect a fair exchange; it helps a lot if you are self-motivated, and enjoy helping, helping earnestly and cultural exchange. Most of the helpers I've hosted so far have contributed satisfactorily and some have been exceptionally helpful for which I am most grateful.

    I have also been a workawayer myself and I believe its important to see both perspectives to be fair and balanced in these exchanges. The help varies, put mostly involves help around the home, gardening, yard help, or cleaning, and sometimes photography/videography.
