    Description

    I have had trouble posting more pics to the website, but happy to email pics to anyone hoping to see more.

    Hello! My name is Dani and I live in Roberts Creek, a beautiful town on the Sunshine Coast of BC, with forest trails, beaches, biking and kayaking nearby. I have had Workawayers on and off for the COVID year, full of great experiences. We have renovated 1,5 story cabin, created a wellness space with sauna, and a living suite. We created a large garden from which we eat daily. We are adding rain water collection features in August, as well a system to reuse our grey water in watering some of the garden plants to help with drought and global warming.
    We will create a solar heating system as well. We aim to make a dent in climate change and we resuse recycled products from the neighborhood as much as we can.

    I have extensive knowledge of hike, climb, camping in BC, and at one time, had my truck kitted out for weeks and months of living outside in BC, so I know the hidden jems.

    I am easy going, adaptable, and appreciate clear communication. I know what it is like to be a traveller. and the desire to experience new areas and cultures. I am a social person, but I also make time for myself.

    Let's touch base by phone and see if our desires resonate.

    Cheers,

    Dani

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Roberts Creek has lively outdoor music scene and art exhibitons on a regular basis. There is oppurtunity to learn about sustainable housing, edible plants from nature, and a vast knowledge from its inhabitants of living off the land.

    There are a lot of artists, musicians, organic farms, mushroom pickers, mountain bikers, kite surfers, and some paragliding instructors, friends of mine. The small community is close knit, help each other out, and gather often in the year round for celebrations, such as Creek Daze, the mandela painting, earth day, Christmas potluck, art crawls. and music festivals. There is the opportunity to fish on lakes and the ocean, and gather and forage in the forests. I have experienced the great hikes, hot springs, areas to visit, and secluded camping spots in most of lower BC and can share my knowledge. I have travelled in many areas of the world. I am happy to share my knowledge of Italian, Spanish or French, and also able to help people wanting to practise and improve their English, or French.

    Roberts Creek is located on Squamish First Nation Land, and there is opportunity to connect with and learn to learn about our First Nations neighbors. We had a march with over 1000 attendees from the community on July 1st in support of the First Nations Band.

    What else ...

    Time off includes hiking, beach and forest walks, biking, swimming, kayaking or paddle boarding in the ocean, playing music, exploring the farmer markets, taking in live music and festivals, mushroom picking, fishing, bird watching.......

    I am a positive and inspired musician and health professional. This property is my dream, and sharing this little piece of heaven with with like-minded people is my goal. My future plans for the property are to ease lodging shortage on the Sunshine Coast, build healthy and sustainable living accommodations, create a healing space and a music space for collaboration, and in the distant future, to allow foster kids from the city to experience and appreciate living near the land and water, in a loving community. I am hoping to allow for the opportunity to explore and be inspired by nature and music, and living off the land.
