  • Description


    We are a well traveled retired couple looking for assistance with yard work and light house help. We want to build a screened in porch this year; Carl knows how to build it and only needs help with labour. Myself, Maria, am a Mediterranean woman who has lived and worked professionally in North America for over 35years. I still love my ethnic cooking and hope you enjoy it too. I also like Italian cooking. I will cook at least one meal a day for you and you are welcome to our food and kitchen to make yourself at home.

    We have an open concept home, to accommodates my wheelchair, and we share our home with our two big friendly dogs, Boomer and Jigger, and our partly blind cat Pollyanna. You will have a bedroom to yourself and we also have a small motorhome that you can stay in if you like when we are not using it. Singles or healthy couples welcome.

    Our hope is to find help this spring and travel later this summer. We are located in rural Nova Scotia, Guysborough county which has the biggest land mass and is the most sparsely populated county in the province. There are unlimited wild spaces to explore near the shore and in the country with options to hike, swim, fish etc.

    We are a non-smoking healthy home and are unmasked un vaxed. We appreciate open minded people. Carl plays guitar and sings so if you have instruments please bring them along.

    If you are still reading and interested in folk music, the famous Stan Rogers Folk Festival is only 20minutes down the road in the small town of Canso. This year it is from July 22-24th. If you work for us and complete the porch, you will have four days off to play at the festival. We are looking for about four hours a day, maybe more with breaks and relaxed working environment.

    We are intelligent easy going people and we hope to hear from you. Please reach out and we can connect over the phone to get to know each other better to see if we are a good fit.
