    Family of four looking for help with child-care (2 yr old and 5 month old) in beautiful Revelstoke, BC. Room offered in our newly built home with stunning mountain views. We're looking for some help with the kiddos and around the house so Mum can get some time to work, and play! Lots of free time for you to ski, play and explore! ** Please note; we are currently social distancing to protect our family. Crazy times - so we'll need to talk with any potential workaway-er staying with us and find a way we can live, work and play together so we are all safe and comfortable!

    Explore the beautiful BC wilderness surrounding Revelstoke and be a part of an amazing small mountain town community! We get out for family fun days as often as we can and as part of our family you'd be welcome to join us on our adventures. The skiing here is phenomenal and we can set up our schedule to maximize your time on the slopes, so if you are looking for an unforgettable ski season, Revy might be the place. In summer, we can help you find equipment if you want to bike, camp, paddle, dirtbike or whatever - most things are available for rent in town. We have a 'townie' pedal bike you can use to get around Spring-Fall - it is the preferred mode of transport in Revy in the warmer months!

    Hi! We live in beautiful Revelstoke, BC and have a son who turned 2 in summer 2020 and a daughter born in March 2020. I am hoping to offer someone a room in our lovely home in return for help with child care and some light cleaning/house work. Hours/duties are flexible and I'll be close by - just looking for a few hours away from the kids to get some stuff done, and have a bit of time for some exercise and relaxation! Very flexible as to how this could work - ideally I'd like someone who is comfortable with one kid or both kids for a few hours at a time to give me a break, and then some help with light cleaning and normal house hold chores - sweep the floor, clean a bathroom, shovel some snow - that kind of thing, which could really be done whenever you liked (within reason).

    Winter here is amazing - we get a ton of snow and have a world class ski resort on our doorstep, plus endless back country to explore if you prefer to earn your turns ski touring. Revelstoke is a stunning town with tons to do and explore too in the summer - biking / hiking / climbing / paddling / and more! Glacier National park is a few kms away, and the huge Lake Revelstoke too. Whatever the season, there is a lovely small town community here.

    Myself and my partner are in our late 30's and we work hard and play hard. We love getting outside and are excited to show our kids the world, and all the fun stuff to do out there. It's really important that you are a good fit for our little family and everyone will need to be comfortable with the arrangements and with each other. Previous experience with baby sitting /child care would be a huge asset, and basic first aid also helpful. Ideally you'd want to stay for a few months and become a familiar face and a friend to the little ones. Strictly no pets and no smoking. Details are negotiable so please get in touch if you think you might like to experience our amazing town and would like to join our family! Thank you :)

    Accommodation

    We have a newly built beautiful spacious home in Revelstoke. You would have your own (queen bed) room and a shared toilet/bathroom next to your room. You would share a kitchen, living area and full bathroom/shower with myself, my boyfriend and the kiddos. Food is included though we'd have to negotiate if you are vegan/dairy free/gluten free as quite simply, I can not afford to supply those options (groceries are insanely expensive here!). I'd ask you to make your own breakfast and lunch, and cook one meal for the family each week. You would supply your own alcohol if you wish, though in moderation - we are a family home, not a party pad. We are approx 3 km from town centre - you can walk or ride a bike to town in about 15 min in summer and we are close to the local bus route in the winter. Unfortunately we don't have room for a couple, so we are looking for a single person only.
