  • Description


    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.

    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.

  • Help


    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.

    Thank you!🕊✨

    Kindly share driving experience, as it would come handy. We live only 5-7 minutes (drive) away from the ferry. And about 20 minutes walk. Bus is also available. Walking is fun in the trails to the beach. Guests are not allowed in the cottage. Food is also included.

    We would love a copy of current resume with three emergency contacts. And because children are involved, we would like a copy of police background (happy to reimburse cost) check as well. You may bring printed copies and present at day of arrival.

    Thank you!🕊✨
