We are a family of four with two beautiful children between the ages of 4-8 (boy and girl) on Bowen Island. Dad works in the city, while mom works at home as a photographer. We also have a cat. Meow.
We are looking for a highly optimistic person (woman), who loves children to be part of our family.

Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We live on a beautiful island made up of barely four thousand inhabitants. With a tight knit community, it's a great place to meet people and also enjoy nature only one hour away from the main city of Vancouver.
Mainly 20 hours a week help required and happy to pay agreed hourly rate after.
We are offering a loft with a king size bed at our cottage. The loft will be your own space in a 450 square feet cottage. Part of that cottage will be shared as it is a photography studio with an office where mommy/daddy works in some days. Your own bathroom is in the main house.
Main job is to help one to two hours in the morning during the week possibly making breakfast, tidying the house, and or take kid(s) to school. Help with pick up is also needed. Must be open to cooking, cleaning, gardening, babysitting, and possibly assisting in the photo studio. Another one to two hours in the evening to help with dinner.
We are happy to include food throughout your stay. We are a gluten-free, dairy-free family, and mostly eat lots of fruits and veggies, (free-range/wild) white meat only and seafood (with cheat days). We mostly eat local and organic foods.
Visitors are not allowed in the cottage.
Kindly let us know your driving experience.
Non-smoking, pet-free adventurer only please.
Loft with king size bed in a cottage. Wifi and food included. Own bathroom is in the main house.
