Help in the house
Hi, I am looking for a fun, active and responsible person who would to help a single working mother get on top of stuff around the 2 acre property and largish family house. Also spend time hanging out with my three smart and creative daughters (13, 15 & 17) some afternoons while I am at work (but close by) for the Summer months. Like going swimming in our fresh water lakes and ocean beaches, talking about their interest--oldest is writing science fiction novels). And Also help with house keeping, making light meals and clean-up together. And, ideally doing some work reclaiming our overgrown garden.
We speak English, French and Spanish
As our guest you will have your own private-access bedroom, queen size bed and own bathroom, strong wifi and full use of the kitchen and living areas in our large house. Our property is big and fun/kid friendly. We are located close (10 minute walk) to the main town Ganges, situated around a beautiful harbour where there are: 3 art/craft/organic produce markets/wk; many venues with live music in the evenings and lots of arts, sports and cultural events all summer long. Because of its beauty and creative community, Salt Spring Island is a tourist destination yet is still small enough to be fun, friendly and super safe.
I am a skilled counsellor and artist willing to spend time with our workawayer to build a supportive friendship and help them explore life choices, etc. We have lived in a foreign country and understand what an adjustment it can be. We will be understanding and supportive with learning English if needed, we are multilingual. Salt Spring Island is on the South Coast of BC and is close to the cities of Victoria and Vancouver.
