We currently have no availability until September. Minimum 2 week stay. Please read the notes at the bottom of our listing - thank you!

We are located about 2 hrs north of Toronto. Come work & play in one of the best kept secret areas in Canada! We are located minutes from the longest freshwater beach in the world - 18km of powdery white sand called Wasaga Beach! Our house is a short walk from lovely hiking and biking trails, and the largest ski resort in Ontario is a short drive away. There is access to a tennis court a short walk away. We are located on the edge of a small town, an area with various stores for shopping, restaurants, the beach and more is about 10 minute bike ride. We often go to Collingwood, a very pretty tourist town. We include our guest in any activity they would like to be part of, such as coming out on our boat, going skiing and offer rides to town and sights whenever we can. There is a local bus that leaves from a stop at the end of the road that gets you to the shopping area as well as to Collingwood and the beaches.

In exchange for about 4 1/2 hours of work per weekday, we offer private accommodation and meals. You have your own apartment with separate entrance consisting of a bedroom, bathroom with shower, living area and full kitchen. There is one double bed and hence the accommodation would be most suitable for a single person or couple, though we could provide an additional single rollaway bed and there is a large couch as well.

Right now we are specifically looking for helpers to help with a basement renovation project that involves some drywall work, mounting of ceiling tiles, painting etc. There is also always housekeeping like general cleaning, window washing, gardening like weeding and landscaping, painting and other chores inside the house and outdoors.

Our household consists of Brian, Doris and Daniel, 19. We are an easygoing, well travelled family and have done a number of working and home exchanges in the past.

Working hours can be flexible if you are really not a morning person :-), though we recommend work in the mornings, so that you can be free to come along if we go out in the afternoons, and also, because it tends to get very hot by lunchtime in the summer.

PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE NOT ABLE TO HOST ANYONE YOUNGER THAN 22 YEARS OLD. Additionally, it is up to you to familiarize yourself with insurance/health insurance and other Canadian regulations.
