We are a professional household with no children. We live on the waterfront in an executive home with a large swimming pool, a professional home gym etc. on the beautiful sunshine coast of BC.
My husband and I work full time and need a suitable person to cook, clean and garden. We also have small building projects and painting projects on occasion. Our community (Sechelt, BC) has world class mountain biking (gravity park and trails) and white water kayaking (skookumchuk narrows).
We also have many outdoor opportunities: ocean kayaking, hiking, cross country skiing, camping, SUP, fishing, etc. We look forward to hearing from you.

The Hidden Groves area is next to the Sandy Hook neighbourhood 6 km from downtown Sechelt and 2 km from Porpoise Bay Provincial Park. The Groves offer trails for hikers and walkers, with easy walks of 15 minutes or so, and longer treks of 3 or 4 kilometres.
All the trails are very well marked and prepared. There are signs at all intersections containing directions, maps and guides. You cannot get lost. In addition there are take away printed maps in a box at the entrance.
The Groves includes: ancient giant trees, maple wetland and rocky promontories; there is access and parking at the entrance to the trails; views of Vancouver Island and Sechelt Inlet; and it is a legal off-leash area for dogs.
The Sechelt Heritage Forest portion of the Groves is a protected interpretive forest, as designated by the Province. Hidden Grove is currently part of the BC Forest and under a special tenure to the Sechelt Community Forest, which has declared the Grove a special high-priority recreational area and mandated it shall not be logged. Volunteers provide daily maintenance and development.

We were always free to organize the working hours as we wanted to. So we were quite flexible and could even take a day off.
We enjoyed as well the time with them together such as playing cards, watching
I immediately felt welcome in this beautiful home with this very friendly and open-minded family.
The help was fun (I helped them mainly in the garden) and I had a lot of free time.
I learnt so much about Canada and the beautiful Sunshine Coast. Gail
