  • Description


    Hello, we are a family of four living on Bowen Island, BC, Canada. We have a 4 year old daughter and a brand new baby boy, and we’d like to host someone who can offer child care. Bowen Island is a beautiful island just a 20 minute ferry ride from Vancouver. If you enjoy the outdoors and love to live surrounded by nature, Bowen is the spot for you. Bowen has a small town community with friendly people. You’ll always find a helping hand. It’s safe and quite easy to get around. There are many hiking trails and lovey beaches everywhere. If you’re looking for a quiet spot away from big cities, Bowen Island is the perfect place for you.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We’re an Indian family. Mostly communicate in English, but know Hindi and Bengali as well, so if language is something that interests you, we may be a good fit. Learning about Indian food and our culture may also be a point of interest.
    Our home is in a small island community but we have people from all over the world who live here, with so many wonderful life experiences.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There’s lots to explore on Bowen Island. Hiking and beaches. Bowen Island is a 20 minute ferry ride to the mainland. There are lots of public transit options in Vancouver. You can catch a 15 minute bus ride into downtown Vancouver. You can bike almost anywhere in Vancouver. You can take the sky train to lots of places in lower mainland Vancouver. There are shuttles that you can take to the ski slopes as well.
    My family and I are enjoy the quiet nature of our home and community. We require people to be respectful of the nature around us. No smoking is a must in this forest environment.
