  • Description


    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 help with preparing dinner 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 :)
