  • Description


    This is is warm and welcoming century home that has become a touchstone for many who have visited over the years. I am a 60 year old holistically oriented realtor, my kids are: a my 27 year old daughter named Bénédicte, currently living Berlin, Daniel, 29, is travelling the world as a digital nomad and Ben, 31, has settled down in a fixer upper house nearby. We are located in Chateauguay, a small community south of Montreal, only a few minutes walk from a bus that will take you to the Angrignon métro. The atmosphere is relaxed and easygoing, this is a great place to step back, breathe deeply and disconnect from the craziness. Welcome to digital nomads, chefs, handy types, musicians and gardeners. There is always cleaning and either snow removal or weeding, sometimes paining or repairs but it is generally a good, laid back gig. I have heard the average is 5 hours per day for most hosts, I don't really look at hours per day, it is fine to get more work done on some days and take other full days to go downtown and explore the city. I want to create a win-win!

    Life does not have to be about what others tell you is 'success'.. we believe that 'success' means looking within, finding your sweet spots and intentionally creating a life in accordance with your values and beliefs. Here you will have a chance to discuss your beliefs and aspirations, maybe set some goals, see what freedom and open mindedness look like. 2 of my kids have done great workaways, we want to contribute to the community.

    Historic riverfront home, located not too far from downtown Montreal and accessible by public transit, needs a few more hours than what I can spare at the moment. Some renovations happening at my son's house a few blocks away as well.

    The gig is chill, in this house we like to talk about life, goals directions and experiences over a few glasses of wine and a lot of laughter. Once the bigger jobs are done (spring and fall clean up, gardening) aside from helping keep this huge house clean and helping to cook dinners so I can focus on other responsibilities, I don't need a ton of hours, just some blitzes now and then in a few different areas. NB I have found that 1-2 week stays are the best on our end.

    In Montreal? Anything and everything!! The bus to the metro (subway ) line is about a 5 minute walk, and you can get downtown in about 70 minutes, much less if you have a car. Montreal is a world class city, several universities, affordable eats, lots of young people and a thriving indie music and arts scene.
