  • Description


    Come live with us on Bowen Island, British Columbia, and help us take care of Leander, our 1 1/2-year-old. Bowen Island is an idyllic island in the middle of Howe Sound, just a 20-minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver. We live in the country but the big city is easily accessible by public transit or car. This island offers a great sense of community and stunning natural beauty.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Immerse yourself with the west coast lifestyle. The mountains and the ocean is at our doorstep. Go hiking, kayaking and boating during the warm months, and skiing during the winter months.

    We're a multicultural household and speak English, French, and German every day. Bertine and Kahlil both work in sustainability. Bertine in renewable energy and Kahlil in reforestation.

  • Help


    Leander's parents, Kahlil and Bertine, work from home during the week and are looking for someone to take care of Leander, play outside and go on adventures. We're 100 metres from the beach where you can go kayaking or boating, there are trails to exploring through the forest and lake nearby.

    Leander is really good-natured and easy-going.
