  • Description


    Hi my name is David,
    Last august I purchases a beautiful 1.1 acres of fruit trees gardens and a lovely house. I am 25 years old living here full time. I work full time during the week and take weekends off to enjoy the surrounding area. To avoid spending my time off cleaning and gardening I am looking for some casual help in exchange for showing someone a good time around this great place. My friend and his partner rent out the lower half of the house with their dog Bo. I have lived here my hole life for and raised on the island spending all my free time exploring the area have given me local knowledge and access to the most beautiful places the west coast has to offer.
