    Hey there, my name is Jennifer. We live on a island in the middle of the bay of Fundy, in New Brunswick, Canada it is a popular tourist destination with rich culture and deep history. Look us up, you'll be intrigued.

    I own two businesses. I run a fun, vibrant and fresh food truck. I serve authentic Mexican food, gourmet burgers, and some local favorites. Its super busy, the tips are awesome and we've received excellent reviews on all the popular travel sites, this year we are offering patio seating and DELIVERY!!!

    My other business is providing lawn care services for a variety of clients and businesses, most every property has sprawling ocean views, Its so beautiful here.

    I also manage an off the grid, eco-cabin accommodation in a famous area on the backside of the island.
    We are looking for help with housekeeping as well.

    Living and experiencing life on Grand Manan is really extraordinary. We live in Seal Cove, the most populated village on the island. We also have the best beach! Its pure sand as far at the eye can see. Our home is 2 mins away and at night, when all is calm, you can hear the waves crashing, its truly breath taking.
    If you enjoy nature, this is the place for you. We have an extensive trail system, that runs almost the whole perimeter of the island. We host over 750 birds at many of our bird sanctuaries, we have excellent museums and art galleries. On summer nights, at Arthur's bench, you can watch the whales play in the rip tide while watching the sunset, while drinking wine, tea, beer or any preferred beverage, its really something to experience.
    We are a loving family and want to teach you English should you want or need to learn. We are very outgoing and are always working on some sort of project. I am sure you will learn lots.

  • Accommodation


    In the spirit of 2020 and that terrible pandemic... There are questions about travelling and quarantine. I am happy to let you know there is alternate accommodation to provide you a place to isolate for 14 days, before joining us in our home.
    Please include this in your projected time length for staying with us.

    The accommodation is in our home with shared rooms and facilities. We are a very outgoing family, we enjoy dinners in our dining room, and spending time with our children. We also love games nights, we enjoy music playing throughout the day, doing puzzles and exploring outside.
    We have two rooms to accommodate our workawayers; in single occupancy and double.
    There is a room in the back of the house with the best ocean view, formerly known as the Maids/Butlers Quarters. This has a single bed in it with loads of storage. Someday Ill add my Yucatan hammock to this room, then it'll accommodate two friends! ;)
    We have a second room with a queen size bed, its a nice big room with a double closet and dresser, a rocking chair and lap desk. Maybe ill put a hammock in here too... Stay tuned.
    The front of the house has a seating area for extra space and privacy, we sometimes sit out there and have coffee in the mornings. Its a quiet spot to just relax.
    We are able to accommodate different sleeping arrangements, should you be travelling as friends, families, co-workers or couples. Just ask us!
    We respect you and expect the same in return. Its the Canadian Way!
