    Lisa, Artur and I are a small family who loves living in the Wild Mountains of BC. Lisa is from Germany originally, and we are raising our son bi-lingual. We love good company and are looking for the 'right fit' we are both comfortable with. Committed longer stay is preferred, but the right candidate can do some coming and going.

    Willing workaway will have an entire, very large and nice house to themselves most of the summer. There is a grand piano in the living room. Acreage with creek and river nearby. Access to a vehicle if needed on occasion, however own vehicle would be an asset. Bicycles available. Plenty of opportunities to hike the local mountains, swim at the local beach and enjoy Valemount BC. 1 hour from Jasper by car.

    My parents are away all summer and we need someone interested in helping to maintain an acreage for an extended period this summer asap. Must be reliable and fond of 1-2 year old boys. Preferably is fluent in German (or Austrian/Swiss). Duties will include some mild gardening, babysitting 2 days a week, some minor maintenance work and painting as well as minor housework. Although you will have an entire house on an acreage 6km out of town to yourself most of the time, some family may come and go at times. Lisa, Artur and I live in town in our own house, and will host as needed.

    Large nice house on an acreage 6km out of town. Some house rules, but pretty free and open.
