  • Description


    Very friendly Canadian family welcomes you to come and stay with us. Nice room and healthy meals provided in return for help around the house both inside and out. There is already a full-time nanny who is main caregiver for nine-year-old boy and four-year-old girl but some assist may be needed taking children to playground etc.

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

    It is an easy walk to the ocean and seabus to downtown Vancouver. There are lots of buses and easy access to North Shore hiking trails.

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

    Help both inside and outside the house. Mother is a surgeon, father is a director, so very busy household and lots to do including gardening, taking care of two lovely dogs, and maintaining a house. Lots of great food and fun to have too.

    What else ...

    Easy to get anywhere with local public transportation, we also have a second car so if available you can use that occasionally. North Vancouver is nicely situated between downtown Vancouver and lots of hiking trails on the North Shore, very close to Whistler also.
