  • Description

    Description

    We are a married couple (43 and 41 yrs) with 2 young boys (3 and 2 yrs). We both work from home. We have a large property with farmhouse, 2 large dogs, horses, lambs, ponies and a handful of chickens and geese. Always adding animals as we go!

    We are located in McBride, British Columbia. It is a small 'village' in the Robson Valley - one of BC's most beautiful areas! !

    Our dogs are large breed dogs, mostly inside. They are very friendly (sometimes a little too friendly!).

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live a subsistence lifestyle as much as we can. We are very passionate about wildlife conservation, and that will be very evident while you are here. Some things you will take away from your stay with us will be experiencing a quiet and rural lifestyle, gaining knowledge about hunting and wildlife conservation, being surrounded with some of the most beautiful nature that BC has to offer and of course, having fun with a couple of really sweet little boys! You also have the opportunity to learn a great deal about small scale farming.

    To be a good fit for our home, you should be ready for remote living, comfortable with dogs and, most importantly, experienced with small kids/babies.

    My husband does computer work from home and I am a bookkeeper, going into my busiest work season. I need someone to help with my little boys for a few hours each day (ie. feeding, playing etc). It would also be helpful to have some help with light cleaning and other household and farm chores.

    It is expected that a single girl/woman would suit us best, but we are open - experience is primary.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Our home is set up with general living space and bedrooms on the main level. The guest room is on the lower level with a private shower room. We have sit-down dinner together every night, but breakfast and lunch are mostly "help-yourself".

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We would be suitable hosts for someone looking for a bit of quiet time for reflection, reading, writing etc. As we are quite rural, the most likely things to do with free time will involve the outdoors, or just curling up with a good book. Or you can relax around the outdoor fire, surrounded by trees and mountain views!

    There are numerous areas to hike, fish and forage nearby.
