    I can show you how to cook simple Korean food if you like. If you need somewhere quiet, it might be suitable place to you. There are many trails to go for a walk.

  • Help


    I have a small vegetable garden. Spring, Summer and Autumn time, there's help needed in the garden including planting and weeding. When the weather gets colder, there's less need for gardening so probably more like general maintenance and cooking & cleaning around the house.

    I live downstairs and you would stay upstairs. Upstairs has two bedrooms ( no beds, Asian style mattress) and a spacious living room. There are a bathroom and a kitchen. The kitchen is simple so good for breakfast. Lunch and dinner are provided downstairs.
