About us: We're a family of 4 (5 if you include our dog, Tucker) - mum, dad and two girls aged 8 and 14. We're a busy family with two working parents and girls who enjoy school and after-school activities. We enjoy life as a family and take advantage of what Vancouver and BC has to offer. Bike rides, cafes, walks around the sea wall and visits to farmer's markets are pretty standard trips for us. We'd be happy to share these with you.

Help in the house
We've lived in the Vancouver area for over 20 years so we know the city, surroundings and Kitsilano (where we live) really well. Our family loves the cafe culture that Vancouver has to offer and we enjoy the outdoor adventures on our doorstep - we'd like to share these with you.
Like lots of Vancouver families, we're a mix of backgrounds. Campbell River on Vancouver Island and London, UK used to be our homes. We've both worked overseas and traveled a fair bit and look forward to learning more from our visitors.
We're looking for a female guest to help us with the kids and house during the week (weekends now and again).
We need help with meal preparation and clean up, light shopping, school run and pick-up, school work (for our 8-year-old), after-school activities and keeping the house clean (light housework).
Your day could be split with a few hours in the morning and the rest of your work day in the afternoon/early evening. We are flexible but will definitely need help with the after-school busy time (3 to 6 pm).
English, French and Italian
We live in a 2-level house in Kitsilano. It's very central to transit, cafes, shops and the bustle of the city (20 mins to downtown) and the calm of the beach (10 min walk). You will have a furnished room in the basement and a semi-private bathroom with access to a shared laundry room.
Kitsilano is a great starting point to explore Vancouver. We're close to transit that will take you downtown or further afield. The beach is a 10-minute walk or a 5 min bike ride.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week
