  • Description


    Hello! My name is Jailin and I am a traveler too!

    I recently moved into a new place and I am bit a overwhelmed with work to do to make it feel more like home. I know there are great travellers out there who might like to stay in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies and lend a helping hand.

    In return I can offer a futon in the basement. It is not a bedroom, but a partitioned off area that is bright (big ground level window).

    I live close to trails and Hinton's famous attraction, the Beaver Boardwalk. Winter, skating, cross country skiing, downhill skiing and winter fat bike riding are all accessible.

    Hinton is a small community with all you need. Jasper National Park is only 20km away - and the mountain fun opportunities are endless.

    Plus, the home is fun. There is often music playing and food cooking. I also enjoy quiet time and time alone.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    A great location and some cool people to hang with.
    I am active in the mountains and in my community and love welcoming new people.
    If there is something you want to experience (ice fishing, snowboarding, Northern Lights), I can help make it possible for you :)

  • Help


    I have completed most of my smaller projects. I am currently looking for help with larger projects from people with experience and interest in home maintenance and small renovations/DIY projects.

    Here are some examples of projects I have left to do

    - put tile on bathroom floors
    - paint walls in bedrooms and main floor
    - backyard maintenance (I have a small backyard and little things to be done)

    *️️️️If someone is looking for a short stay I would happily accept help cleaning the home (floors, bathrooms, kitchen). The house is generally tidy, but can use a deeper clean every so often :)

  • Accommodation


    It depends how many roommates I have at the time and if a bedroom is free. The two possibilities are

    - A private bedroom with comfortable bed
    - A futon in the unused basement (with divider to make space private)

    Bathrooms will always be shared (one shower in the house, two toilets)

    Meals will be provided when I am home. Other times food will be available for your own preparation.

    I eat mostly vegetarian and will be happy to accommodate food preferences and needs.
