Hello, we are a family of 4. We live in a small town outside of Vancouver, by way of a 45 minute ferry ride. We live on the edge of a forest with great walking trails and a few blocks from a beautiful beach. We can offer a private bedroom. Our kids are 6 and 9. We are looking for a workaway who would like to join our family routine primarily to help with childcare and also some light yard work and or housework - meal preparation and light gardening and yard maintenance.

Travellers may like being a part of a family that enjoys gardening, cooking, arts and crafts. We love learning about people from around the world and are happy to share our lives with you. Cam likes making kambucha, and sour dough bread and Krista likes gardening, landscaping, running, cooking, baking, and would love to have more time to do art.
Our kids would love to meet people from around the world. As my husband and I are both self employed, we would appreciate help with house up keep and meal prep and some light yard work - weeding in the veggie garden is the main thing. Anyone with skills in tutoring or working with our daughter to help her with her math homework and piano practice would be great too. And our son loves playing soccer, biking, and doing lego and coloring. We are looking for someone who would like to join in the family fray for 1-2 weeks at a time, to help with family life as well as learn about you and your culture. We live in a small town and like learning about other people's lives and cultures and languages is great.
We have an extra large twin bed in a bedroom in a separate area of the house from the rest of our family.
There is a bus route 2 blocks away from our house, that gives you access to most of the Sunshine Coast and access to the ferry if you'd like to go into Vancouver. Vancouver BC is a 45 minute ferry ride away, so you can get to the city and back within a day quite easily. The Sunshine Coast offers lots of natural beauty with endless shore line and forest to explore. We have kayaks that you are welcome to use. There are a few coffee shops within walking distance to our home and a great pilates studio also close by. This is a great community of artists, musicians, and nature lovers. We also live by a beautiful mountain range where people can stay in cabins. There is snow shoeing/cross country ski park close by as well (in winter months only)
