    Hello, we are a young family of four living on beautiful Bowen Island, British Columbia, Canada! We have 7 month old twin boys and are seeking a mother’s helper to assist mom with daily activities! My husband is an electrician with his own business, mostly working locally here on island. I’m a stay at home mom currently. I have a bachelors degree in psychology and worked as a legal assistant previously.

    As a family we are interested in exploring nature and what our backyard, beautiful Bowen island has to offer. We also love music and my husband is a musician.

    We are looking for a mother’s helper to help us with our twin boys 3-4 days a week in exchange for staying with us with a room of your own. We would love to have some assistance helping with meals (dinner, lunch) and light chores (dishwasher, laundry) as well.

    We have a private spare bedroom for your stay that has everything you need (tv, Apple TV, Netflix, wifi, mini fridge, kettle, toaster, queen size bed, and a lovely view of the forest). We can provide meals too. There is a shared bathroom for now but we are in the process of building our own private bathroom! Perhaps you are handy or like to build?! We always need assistance in so many areas.

    We live in a brand new house built by my husband on the island with plenty of space inside and out!

    There is a lovely forest trail right beside our house that goes around a lake. It is bicycle and stroller friendly. Also there are many popular hikes, lakes and beaches to explore all over the island.

    Bowen island has been a popular place for visitors as it is peaceful and beautiful, but also a quick 20 minute ferry ride to Vancouver.

    Downtown Vancouver is 30 minutes away by ferry and bus. Let us know if you have any further questions!

    We are an English speaking Canadian family living in the small island community of Bowen island. We are surrounded by some of the best beaches the West Coast has to offer. Our home is on a small farming road. Our backyard has a beautiful lake and old growth forest. There is an easy access trail that goes to the lake beside our home. It is a good opportunity to experience the beauty of the west coast and also the mainland (downtown Vancouver) is a short ferry ride away. Many families on the island have hosted travellers from all over the world and there is a small community of them living here.

    We are looking for help with our baby twin boys. Light chores and meal prep and perhaps an errand or two. For example you could assist with feeding the babies’ meals. Taking the boys on walks in the stroller during the day. Help mom at home with taking care of babies. We are looking for someone who has some experience with young babies and can help us with childcare 4 days a week, in exchange for room and board. Ideally, you would help dad with babies at 7 am so he can get ready for work, then mom would join around 9.
