  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of five that likes to play outdoors and enjoy our beautiful valley. We lead a busy lifestyle during the week and we are looking for some help around the house and yard so that we can enjoy our weekends.
    We have a custom home on two acres in the community of Barriere, with lots of room for guests, including a semi private suite. We are within driving distance of lakes, waterfalls, hiking mountains, skiing, snowshoeing, kayaking etc. And our house is within walking distance of grocery store, library, pharmacy and parks.
    We have three young daughters (11,9,5) who keep us really busy. My husband and I also work full time, so we are looking for help with yard work, some meal prep, and light household chores.
    We have a private room available for you, as well as a private bathroom. You will also get access to the rest of the house, which includes a kitchen, lounge, gym, social area, etc.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Since we have some pretty chatty kids, you can certainly learn the language! We also enjoy fishing and going on day excursions to the outdoors, so we would love to show you around and take you to some swimming and fishing areas in the summer or some hiking in the fall or skiing in the winter.

    Help

    We recently built our house so we have ‘raw land’ surrounding us. We need help with picking rocks, moving earth, possibly laying sod, and just general yard maintenance. We also have three kids so some babysitting would be expected. Lastly, we both work full time so some help around the house, like dusting, vacuuming, cleaning, and some light cooking would be great!
