  • Description


    We are a family of five, Ashley and Jarrett and our two children, Venture (a 6 year old boy) and Sailor (a 5 year old girl) and Wilder (3 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 beehive on the roof and a beautiful vegetable garden. We love to live life, and love to have fun!

    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 some evening babysitting sometimes, and helping out with light housework! I NEED HELP KEEPING MY KITCHEN CLEAN!! lol We have had many workawayers live with us over the past 6 years, and we love it, and have always had a lot of fun!!!
    Venture, is compassionate and caring 6 year old boy who always has lots of questions and loves learning new things. Sailor is a dynamic and very funny 5 year old girl who loves playing with dolls, doing crafts and putting on shows. Wilder is our funny 3 year old, who loves being read to, and loves putting on puppet shows with all his stuffies. Dance parties are also a regular occurrence in our home.
