  • Description


    Hi! I am Malahat and I live with my boyfriend Moe is beautiful Vancouver BC. We are both originally Iranian, but have been living in Canada long enough and we are both citizens. Over the years we have had many international students live with us and we all have enjoyed the exchange.

    I am a designer by profession and I design the interface of software and websites. Moe is a supervisor in a company. I am more artsy and interested in psychology and social sciences and Moe is more into sports and volunteering. We have both travelled the world and love learning about new cultures and making connections.

    We don't have a child now, but we are expecting and we are due in October. I will be on Maternity leave for a year from then, but since this my first time, I am looking for help in everyday maintenance of home, cooking and shopping. We are hoping that you can join us one month in advance of the baby coming so we get to know each other well and establish our routines and expectation s by then. We hope you will stay with us till December but we are open for at least 2 months stays too.

    We live in a 4 bedroom house in East Vancouver. Our house has sweet old architecture, is nicely decorated and has a garden. It is located in a beautiful quite neighborhood. We also have fluffy cat living with us. We are very close to a sky train station snd that train can take you anywhere you want. In 5 minutes bus or train ride ( or 20min bike ride), you can get to one of the most hip areas of Vancouver, commercial drive. Commercial drive, also known as little Italy bustles with restaurants, cafes, boutique and little shops. It has a diverse population and is venue to music and theatre events. Another 15 minute train ride and you are at downtown Vancouver. From there you can go to Stanley park or the seawall and be beside the ocean. You will love our place for it's style and convenient location.

    We can share with you our knowledge and experience of Canadian culture, and their norms and nuances. I can guide you to cultural venues and events if you are interested in the arts. We also have Canadian friends that you will see and interact with during your stay.

    I am not exactly sure what the details are, but I think having someone who take cares of the house, cooking and shopping would be great. Maybe I may ask you to mind the baby while I take a nap, but that would be very light and I would be doing most of the baby work.

    It would be great if you have cooking skills, or can cook off a recipe. Some experience with caring for a newborn would be a bonus.
