Our home is 20 - 30 minutes from downtown Toronto. It is in a vibrant multicultural area, with lots of restaurants/coffee shops/community centre/parks - some influence of the Italian/Portuguese cultures. Our family consist of: our boys (Nicholas is 19 & Elliott 24 years), my husband - John and I (Mai)and our medium size dog (hypo- allergenic)- Turo. We also have renters/AirBNB guests in the apartment on the first floor.

We are active, health conscious, and live as "green" as possible. Mai operates a small Kombucha business, is a Plant Spirit Medicine Healer and a Fire Keeper (facilitates gatherings around a sacred fire). John works as a lawyer. Elliott works during the daytime and has a healing practice in which he sees clients evenings & weekends. Nicholas is studying at university. We are family and community oriented. We work hard and play hard. We love to ski, bike, hike, camp, and be in nature.

There is a single bed and a unfinished bathroom in our finished "everything" basement. The basement has a sink, bar, treatment room on one side and separated by shelves of book is the bedroom on the other side. There are various projects around the house that we need help with. For example, clear and reorganize the garage, the basement storage room, closets, paint a couple of rooms, chop/split wood, fix various things around the house. There's always cooking, cleaning, gardening, walking the dog and laundry to do. Our long term dream, if you are handy, is to rebuild our carport/garage, and finish the bathroom in the basement, some landscaping. Some help with the Kombucha business i.e. wash bottles, herbs, making/bottling the drink. If you are good with computers/social media/marketing & PR...some assistance in bookeeping, website design...for the business would be wonderful.

We will have availability April 2018. Thank you for your interest.
