This Garden Estate & is located at 1200 feet with great views, in a peaceful residential area! This is a "room" exchange workaway. I share basic staples & my kitchen. I’m willing to change this arrangement depending on the situation. So let’s chat on the phone.
I have a 2 bedroom cottage W/ a small bathroom & kitchenette. 1 full size bed and 1twin bed. Sorry can’t seem to add a photo of the other bedroom,
I am NOT on a bus route, but hitch hiking and taxi's are an option.
I have been hosting since 2015. I value your ability to communicate your needs and ideas to me.
I need ID and emergency contact numbers prior to your arrival. Also I advise that you have health insurance & consider Air ambulance medical insurance. .

Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
Living in the islands is a unique life-style; it's about electric and water conservation and cutting back on excess in your life. The local people are diversified and they are from all over the Caribbean
I love sharing what I know about local plants & doing things naturally.
I have a few projects that need some electric, plumbing or carpentry skills as well as gardening.
Plant nursery: re-potting plants, propagating baby plants.
Projects: outdoor lighting to be installed & wood steps need replaced. I have construction tools.
Your ideas are welcome! Let’s talk on the phone!
Housing: Unique stone cottage with 2 bedrooms, 1/2 bathroom, small kitchen. The beds are VERY comfy!
My apt- I share the kitchen, & the shower with you in my apartment. There are 10 cats that live on this 2acre property.
WIFI: not currently at your cottage but is on the property.
Length of Stay:
prefer 2 weeks minimum. Prefer you don’t work another job while luving/ working with me,
Meals: You will cook in your kitchen or mine! We can discuss options. I provide tea, spices & basic condiments. Grocery costs are generally 15%higher than America.
I do not provide use of my car. We drive on the left and my insurance does not cover you.

I recommend you plan financially for taxis; $10-15 pp each way is average.
