I moved to Bonavista 5 years ago and have renovated a couple of homes in the area. I've always lived in large cities and felt it was time to experience some small-town life! Bonavista is a vibrant township with a growing community of artists and artisans inspired by coastal living.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
Cape Bonavista is the place explorer John Cabot made first landfall in the New World in 1497. Every year, visitors from across the province and further afield make the journey to soak up the sun and the natural beauty of this coastal town. Workawayers will enjoy the incredible nature of this beautiful fishing town, see icebergs in May and June, catch whales dancing in the sea, and watch the puffins at Cape Bonavista and Elliston Bird Island. The area has been awarded UNESCO Geopark status in recognition of the area's geological significance. Workawayers will also learn firsthand about the history of the island and the fishing industry. This is a maritime total immersion!
I renovated a house last year and need help creating and maintaining a vegetable garden and flower beds. Help includes creating raised beds, digging out flower beds, planting seedlings and seeds, weeding, cutting the grass, and general garden maintenance We also need help around the house including painting, organising the shed and small DIY projects depending on skills.
Bedroom and shared bathroom in my newly renovated home shared kitchen and living facilities. The property is close to all amenities, historic sites, and shopping. We are a couple of minutes' walk to the ocean, provincial parks, walking trails, and whale viewing sites.
During time off, there are many hiking and biking trails, and areas of natural beauty to explore.
