    Hi! We are Diane and Philippe, we live in a small Townhouse in the East of the Island of Montreal (Pointe-aux-Trembles), Canada, with our cat, Matisse. It's a very quiet neighbourhood.

    By the way, Museums are reopened in Montreal! So on you free days you can go downtown and visit them. There is a lot of art museums in Montreal. I would love people that are tidy, clean, and know how to respect basic house rules :) we can do the stuff (cooking-cleaning - renovating) during daytime so you will have the end of the day off to go and visit, chill, relax, or go walk in Nature Park or visit downtown, the Old Port, etc. If I have time I might come with you! Btw there is a curfew between 8 pm and 5 am now in the Province of Quebec...

  • Help


    Hi! since we decided to redo the whole house, the thing we are looking for is some help to work on the renovations, cleaning the debris and dust after the work days and also cook meals for the 3 of us.

  • Accommodation


    Since we are renovating, the accommodation is a nice thick and comfy airmattress in the master bedroom. For the food, I would like to have the Workawayers help me with it, or simply cook some meals also if you prefer cooking over renovating hehe.

    I live in the East of Montreal's Island, we are near every type of shop that someone would need, there is also a big Natural Park where to go walk in Nature! I am 25 minutes in bus from the Metro (Subway) Stations network, in case you'd like to visit the Olympic Stadium, Old-Port, Old-Montreal, Museums, to experience Montreal. We mainly speak French. We can speak English also, but here we mostly speak French at home, so if you can speak French, please do! I like to know more about each culture that comes to my place, their food and ways to cook stuff, etc. :)
