  • Description


    I live in a small village of Quirpon Newfoundland Canada. My name is Boyce and my partner Michele lives in St.Johns for family obligations. I have a four bedroom 2 bathroom house directly on the North Atlantic. I am a fisherman, hunter and love in the woods. I have skidoo’s quads and boat that I enjoy immensely. I am surrounded by family and am very family and friends oriented. My partner is as well when she can be out here. I run a rental property in the few summer months and enjoy it very much . You would be immersed in the community ma simple life . If you like the outdoors and being a sidekick in fun, you will be right at home and that is how it should be. I have billeted many a national park employee and they never want to leave lol . You will be treated with the upmost respect and considered family.

  • Help


    Help cutting wood and storage . You would probably use a chainsaw. Maybe help with diy around house . Helping with snow clearing will be needed. I do have large snowblower and plough on truck. Have to be willing to drive snowmobile and like snow lol . Being handy is a asset but not a requirement . You have to like people around as there are always people around as I have a open door policy. You would need to like fish and wild game as that is common menu items. Quirpon is quiet place especially in winter but you will love it. I am a crib addict . It is not strenuous work to be done by any means just someone to give me a hand during the winter. You would have a room with your own TV and would not have to share bathroom . I have a 75 inch TV for the games if you like hockey .
