  • Description


    Very friendly Canadian family, welcoming you to come and stay with us. Mother is a busy surgeon, father a director. Our house is very open minded and loves welcoming different cultures. A nice room and healthy meals will be provided in return for help around the house, both inside and out. There is already a full-time nanny who is the main caregiver for a 13-year-old boy and 8-year-old girl, but some assist may be needed with driving or playing with kids.

    French is an asset, as the 8 year old girl is in a primarily French school.

    Beautiful, spacious house is within walking distance of Lonsdale Avenue and the shops of North Vancouver.

    We have a strict No Smoking policy! Minimum stay one month.

    Mother is Greek, father is British, Nanny is Filipino, children are a mix of all three...haha.
    Vancouver and North Vancouver in particular are extremely culturally diverse and we usually host more than one workawayer - it never gets boring.

    The house is close to public transportation – the 240 Bus goes straight to downtown Vancouver, there’s also connections to the Sea Bus. It takes about 45 minutes to the City Centre. We do have a second car that can be used occasionally.
    We’re close to the mountains and lots of hiking trails along the North Shore and about 1.5 hours from Whistler.
