    Hi Travelers. My name is Chad. I'm a full-time builder with my own construction company and also a full-time dad to my two daughters aged 12 & 14. As you could imagine life is quite busy for me. We are a tight little family who enjoy to explore/laugh and relax and meet traveler's and hear about there ventures!

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    I can accommodate two travellers at a time and unfortunately I can only offer the stay to females. This is due to I do not really want strange men around my daughters. Two single beds are on offer with a shared bathroom.
    In regards to food, Another volunteering site ask for 4 hours help per day in exchange for a bed and food. I'm happy for it to be like this.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Depending on when someone decides to stay, I should have a little run about car ready for your use to get around while your not at home. But in the meantime there are two bicycles to use with helmets. I live near the beach, so if you love the ocean this is a great spot to visit. There are bars and restaurants also, markets on weekends and a museum that could give you all the insight on the area.
