  • Description


    We are a young family with two kids in the beach town of Port Elgin at the base of the Bruce Peninsula. We are seeking help with our kids who are 6 years old and 3 years old. Child care, fun outside play and cooking if that's your thing. We have 5 chickens in a backyard coop. No pets inside the house. Absolutely no smoking because of asthma.

    Grey-Bruce Counties are home to beaches, caves, farms, forests, trails, quaint downtown strips with boutique shopping, more beaches and some of the best sunsets in the world. Let us know what you'd like to see while you're with us and we'll do our best to get you there.

    We are fully vaccinated, but the kids are not yet. We can only accept fully vaccinated visitors at this time. Exceptions might be made for children travelling with fully vaccinated adults. Thank you.

    The kids are happy to chat all day, so if you're looking to work on your English they will be happy to talk to you as much as you care to listen. The 6 year old has a very impressive vocabulary.

    What else ...

    We are walking distance from hiking and biking trails, the main street quaint downtown strip with restaurants and shops, and the Port Elgin main beach and harbourfront. We are happy to take volunteers to see some of the car-only accessible local sights one weekend a month (because of our work schedules)... it could be more often, depending where you want to go.
