We are a family of four with our two little boys. We live in our newly build dream house in the rainforest, right in between two beaches in Ucluelet. It is a 15 minutes walk to the village center. Hiking trails start right in front of our doorstep. We are artisans who upcycle old sails into sailbags, doing art and running our little B&B business. We love the outdoors, hiking, camping, wildlife watching and boating...this is the Wild West Coast! We love to do fun family activities and little adventures.

We are looking for a motivated preferably female who likes to join our young family. We need someone to help out our family during the week for a few hours mostly in the morning or afternoon (but we are flexible:) also making dinner once in a while and light housework!
Ideally we are looking for a commitment 1 month and up. This area is remote and a hot spot for visitors from all over the world. So much to explore here in Ucluelet, Tofino & Pacific Rim National park around the corner, one of the best places to visit in BC :)

We have the possibility to eat all together every day, I think this… read more
It was such a pleasure to them smile and exploring new parts of the big world around them, making worth the nights and mornings screaming and rebelling. I think I would have never known how it's like to raise small children until I'll have my own some day if not staying with you.… read more
It was hard for me to leave because I felt just after that short time even being part of the family and just like home.
At the weekend we went to different beaches together and had lots of fun.
I haven't been to such a wonderful place , yet.. the landscape, the beaches and the trail are… read more
