I am a retired Anthropologist and Archaeologist and have travelled to 3 continents. I've hosted exchange students from Japan and Taiwan, engage daily with friends from all around the world, and am very comfortable with those who speak limited English.
Saltspring is a beautiful and peaceful rural location. There are many wonderful nature activities (hiking, biking, kayaking). There is also a strong artistic community highlighted by a Saturday market. I enjoy painting and would enjoy talking about art/music, and love to garden.
Saltspring is a great chance to experience rural Canada between a visit from Vancouver to Victoria and our location is extremely convenient.
Household organizing and cleaning, cooking, bringing in wood, and pet care as well as helping with computer needs. I have raised veggies beds and gardens and a small amount of grass that would need cutting and other various small touches needed to complete renovations.
There is a detached sleeping cabin but without water or bathroom facilities from the house which available while you stay in the warmer seasons. There is a nice guest bedroom. We would share a beautiful kitchen. We have a wood stove for cooking.
