  • Description


    We are a young family with two boys (4 and 7 years old), 3 cats and 1 dog living on a beautiful ranch in BC Canada. I (Carolin) Own a cleaning business and a horse training business and also work as a server at a local restaurant. My schedule is very busy and I'm looking for someone to not only nanny my boys but also to help out around the farm (yard work, general house cleaning, care of the animals etc). We are a happy, easy going family that would love to welcome you into home and to show you this beautiful country we live in. We live close to many beaches, lakes, hiking, winery's, etc. So lots to do and explore! The boys are with their dad one week on, one week off during the summer so babysitting is only required during that time. Looking for someone as soon as possible. Preferably yesterday ;)
    There also will be opportunities to ride. So if you are a horse person, bonus points for you!

    The main responsibility will be looking after my two young boys while Im at work. There are many beaches, playgrounds and other outdoor activities within driving distance, so a license is required. We will provide a vehicle. We live on a ranch with horses, and riding lessons are available in exchange for work. Horse experience an asset.
