  • Description


    I am a musician, vegan and follow a yogic lifestyle. I have a daughter whose in Ireland so have many connections overseas. I work in the mornings, spend my afternoons doing music. There is a beautiful beach nearby that provides a great place for walking, swimming and doing meditation. As I live alone, I prefer women to come and stay here with me.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    English conversation and anything to do with music is my thing. I follow a yogic lifestyle, practice meditation, yoga, am vegan so if someones interested in that, I can share my understanding. I live very near a beautiful west coat beach, so in the afternoons its a great place to relax, swim and just sit by the sea.

    I would like to work with someone to create a bigger organic garden, that means making mulch and preparing the garden beds around the house. I am planning a big garage sale soon too, so help with that would be appreciated as well.

  • Accommodation


    You will have your own space in a beautiful wooden studio loft, at the back of the house. It is surrounded by beautiful native trees. The studio (it used to be my recording studio) has a double bed, couch and compost toilet outside. We would share the bathroom, kitchen and lounge inside the house.
