We are a family of five, Ashley and Jarrett and our two children, Venture (a 5 year old boy) and Sailor (a 4 year old girl) and Wilder (2 year old boy) . We live in a beautiful house across the street from the beach in the Kitsilano Beach area of Vancouver, BC. Jarrett is a University Professor and Ashley stays at home with the kids. We love the outdoors, hiking, skiing, biking, surfing, camping, hanging out at the beach etc. We have four chickens in our yard, a bee hive on the roof and a beautiful vegetable garden. We love to live life, and love to have fun!

We look forward to meeting you!
We are looking for a female (sorry guys) who is up to having fun with our family, and joining us on some summer fun family vacations! We need someone to help out with the kids during the week for a few hours and evening babysitting sometimes, and helping out with dinner once in awhile and light housework!
We require a minimum 4 month stay.
You will have your own bedroom with a window and a closet for your belongings. You will be on the main floor of the house and have access to a bathroom on the main floor next to your room where you can store your toiletries. The shower is located in an upstairs bathroom which the rest of the family uses. We have three beautiful decks to relax in the sun and do yoga, a great garden and we live on the beach!!!!
We live on the beach. We are a 5 minute bus ride to downtown Vancouver and the bus stops 50 meters from our house. We can show you the sights, you can borrow our bikes, you are welcome to join us as we do fun things, come and have an adventure with us!!!
