Hi, my name's Sarah and I live with 2 cats and the occasional foster dog in a charming, older 3 bedroom cottage in Morell, on the north, east coast of Prince Edward Island (PEI), Canada. I moved here from then Yukon in 2019 although I'm originally from England.
PEI is spectacular in the fall months. Weather tends to be mild in comparison to other parts of Canada and we rarely see snow before the end of December. It's the perfect time to explore and help out!

Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre
There is a wonderful arts and culture scene on the island and some fabulous musicians. Lots of local history. PEI is also the birthplace of the Confederation and so the city of Charlottetown is full of history, culture and charm.
I'm self employed and work from home, so I have flexibility with my hours, and I love exploring the island (I moved here 3 years ago). My property isn't huge, but I'd love some help with basic gardening, organizing the garage/shed, and general maintenance and upkeep chores. Being of a practical nature and familiar with hand tools is always helpful.
As is common with older 'fisherman cottages' the rooms upstairs aren't big and have sloping ceilings, but have plenty of room for a queen bed, closet, chest of drawers and side table etc. Additional space is available in the single room / office next door. There is one full bathroom upstairs and one half bathroom downstairs which are shared.
We are a five minute drive from one of the most spectacular white sand beaches and metres away from the famous Confederation Trail, converted from the old railway lines which encompasses the whole of PEI and is perfect for walking or biking. There is a fishing harbour in Morell too, and we are a short drive from Greenwich National Park and St Peters Bay. Oysters, mussels and lobsters are all fished in these waters and they are also very popular for kayaking/SUP. There's a post office, grocery store, gas station/convenience/liquor store, pharmacy and library all within a short walking distance.
I have food allergies that I wouldn't want to inflict on anyone, and as such I'm offering accommodation only in exchange for reduced hours of help. You will have full use of the kitchen to prepare your own food. However, occasional suitable communal meals will be most welcome.
