    Description

    Hello!

    My name is Marina. I live a healthy lifestyle, exercise in nature daily, and enjoy having a positive outlook on life!

    I am of Croatian and Italian heritage, born and raised in the United States, city of Seattle.
    I have inherited a large stone home in Croatia, built by my grandfather's hands.

    The house is on a remote island in the Adriatic Sea. The house is need of much repair, and I have a caretaker for this task. We (caretaker and I) are looking for help with housekeeping and cooking, so he can focus on house restoration/ repairs/ etc.

    If you like the outdoors and nature, you will love it here!
    The swimming is wonderful, with crystal clear water. It is an excellent place for snorkeling, fishing, diving, stargazing, watching sunrises/sunsets, hiking, exploring, and so much more!

    Side note... I am also a social dancer and enjoy dancing many styles of dance, but especially Argentinian tango. If you dance, we can enjoy that as well.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The culture is rich and deep, an island whose people are directly from the time when the Vikings, Romans and Greeks ruled the seas. The beauty of the island and sea are equally as rich.
