    Description

    I have recently purchased a small farm in Summerland. There are 2 houses on the property and the smaller old house needs renovating. So I prefer someone who either has construction experience or wants to learn and has energy to do the work. I live within walking distance to stores and services in Summerland and I have a bike for you to use. This is an area of orchards, vineyards and lakes, a beautiful place where people come to holiday or retire. The weather and lakes are awesome.

    I enjoy travelling myself and have been to over 20 countries. Now i am inviting travelers here. I am looking for those who are somewhat independent. I can offer bikes to see the area and can provide occasional transportation. There are many wineries for wine tasting tours within biking distance, as well as the Trans Canada Trail for hiking and beautiful lakes . The nearby small city of Penticton offers music festivals, beaches, world class climbing, and many other recreational options.

    Housework and cooking would be shared, I will supply the food. Bringing a pet may be okay, this would have to be discussed ahead of time.
