We have a beautiful country home which is located a 12-15 minute drive north west of Charlottetown and our Cottage property is located in pretty seaside Cavendish Beach on the island North Shore of the Island.. In winter we live in our country home but in summer we live at Cavendish.
Cavendish would be your home away from home while you stay with is. It is a sleepy little place most of the time but in summer it is a very busy tourist town. Folks come from all across Canada and the USA as well as internationally to visit the famed Anne of Green Gables House and the beaches of the Cavendish National Park.

Leone was an English teacher for many years overseas so she’s happy to help you with any English challenges you might need help with and Jamie runs his own company but has so much love for life, a great love of laughing and talking with others.
Some of things we do on a daily basis and need help with depend on the time of year. We welcome people who enjoy working together as a part of a team and who can also add to our family and group by being self starters and thinkers. Sometimes we work together but sometimes you will need to take the initiative to find tasks to do and to work on your own
We are doing work on the house where we live and also at our cottage property. Work includes cottage house cleaning, laundry, working in the gardens with planting or watering or weeding, cutting grass, small repair and building projects, painting(both indoors and outdoors) etc.
There is also some help with child care required. So it’s important that you love children.
And finally we also need help with our dogs. They love to be played with, taken for walks, need to be fed and let in and out to pee and need to be cleaned up after. You need to like dogs.
Shared room/bunk style rooms. Shared bathroom. Access to cable tv, dvd library, internet, shared kitchen.
Pei is known for its tourism culture.
There’s lots to see n do in tourist season in PEI. Peak busy season is July and August. Winter season tourists while spring and fall are the quieter shoulder seasons.
Public transportation is not so great in PEI. In summer season there is a bus service from Cavendish to Charlottetown. Otherwise you would need to rent a car to see around the island or take one of the many many tours that’s available. Of course there are taxis too but they can be expensive.
Weather wise....summer is around 18-25 degrees while winter can be as cold as -20 or so but the average is about -12ish. Spring is wet wet wet and chilly from dampness. Autumn winds sometimes makes us put our coats on but mostly autumn is lovely.
