My husband, Maggie our dog, Puck the feline and I recently purchased a beautiful waterfront home in Prince Edward County on the Bay of Quinte. This lovely 2 storey home on one acre is in need of some TLC inside and out. Wine country, magnificent beaches, quaint villages, water sports, bird migration banding and bird watching, Lake Ontario, bike trails ... all close by. We have excellent, unlimited internet access. We also love to travel and look forward to sharing meals, projects and stories with our work away guests. Please note: We are only able to accept those currently in Canada as we can not offer a letter of employment.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
I was a high school teacher and would love to help with english language education. I am also learning a little Spanish. We have travelled Canada extensively and would love to share travel tips. My husband is Australian, I lived there 10 years. We had the wonderful adventure of building built a B&B in Central Queensland. Travel has always been a big part of our life and we welcome the opportunity to learn about your home and experiences. We are new to Prince Edward County and can explore this beautiful area together.
Projects include gardening like weeding, trimming and preparing sites for new plants, general outdoor cleaning like walls and deck. Interior help may include painting and assisting with some construction.
