SSH should work great but you'd need a real user account on her machine.
In Nautilus, don't use ssh:// as it won't prompt for a password and
you'll be left with cryptic error messages.  I use Nautilus with SFTP to
transfer files to/from my laptop, web server, etc.

Open "Computer" on your GNOME desktop then open "File" menu -> "Connect
to Server" item.  Now you can enter a "Location" like
sftp://user@ and give it a descriptive "Link Name."
