    Description

    We are a fun-loving, adventurous, family looking for someone to join our home for four months or more! If you are already in Canada, specifically BC, please get in touch! We have lots of space and a separate bathroom for our workaway to keep us all safe!

    We are active and like to enjoy life outdoors. We live in a huge house with a big backyard, perfect for lounging in the sun and enjoying the BBQ. We live in a pretty sweet spot that's perfect for exploring everything Vancouver has to offer. We are very close to Vancouver's city centre which is about 15 mins by bus or bike. We're also very close to Granville Island, Kits beach and other beautiful parks. We love to be outside, especially over the summer when Vancouver is lovely and warm and right on the ocean.

    We are looking for a big sister to join our family adventures! We are looking for someone to stay with us for ideally for a minimum of four months so that our children can get to know you and you can feel like part of the family. Anyone who has experience with children and is happy to jump in and get their hands dirty with us is ideal!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We speak English and some French. My husband in British and I am Canadian so you can take your pick of accents to master!

    We have lived in Vancouver for 8+ years and so look forward to introducing you to all our cool friends and sharing all the best bits Vancouver has to offer - the sights, playing outdoors, going on bike rides, swims at the pool or beach, and sharing life's adventures! We also spend a lot of time on Vancouver Island and love exploring there.

    We live in a pretty sweet spot that's perfect for exploring everything Vancouver has to offer. We're close to the city centre, Vancouver's best beaches, and you'll have access to British Columbia's great outdoors with the mountains and wilderness close by.

    We're a family of entrepreneurs, always coming up with amazing ideas so we can retire early (no, we haven't quite managed it yet!) I run an online store and my husband runs a project management community website so if you like, there are opportunities to learn and explore the world of websites, and eCommerce too!

    If you are looking for fun and adventure at a home away from home then you're welcome! We're looking forward to having you with us!
