  • Description


    Topanga, meaning "a place above", as it was named by the indigenous Tongva tribe, is a beautiful, peaceful retreat and a "hippie town" located in the stunning area of the Santa Monica mountains. We are just outside of Los Angeles, and a short drive from the beautiful beaches of Malibu, Santa Monica and Venice Beach. If you're looking for a place to relax, connect with nature and animals, and at the same time be close to the beach, hike trails and the excitement of a big city, this is the place for you. Right now we are looking for someone to help with construction and renovation projects; therefore with the capacity to do physical work.
    We want hard workers with great motivation to learn quick and be helpful with the regular everyday tasks regarding the plants, animals, food and cleaning. We are currently forming a small community and as we are all working toward the goal of turning around this awesome and huge property, we want passionate and dedicated people to bring even more laughters and joy into these houses!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Peaceful paradise in the mountains with close proximity to the City of Angels, Topanga is a very unique place in a national park with wonderful energy and lots of beautiful souls living here. You will live with the locals, have plenty of time to meditate, do yoga, go on hikes or chill on the beach. There's plenty of organic coffee shops and markets in the town, and the community is something you won't find anywhere else. There is loads of artists living in the area, and events such as Farmers Markets, festivals and shows, so you will never be bored. It will definitely be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, if you allow it to be <3.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Even though Topanga is very peaceful and quiet, all the excitement is just around the corner.
    We are located only a 10 minute drive from the beach and the beautiful Malibu area that is famous for its celebrity homes and beaches, canyons, and waterfalls.
    The famous Santa Monica Pier is about 15 minutes away.
    Santa Monica and Venice Beach have a lot to offer. From high quality meditation and yoga classes, to surfing, great night life, and just the overall vibe of the beach town.
    You will also be close to Downtown LA, which offers anything and everything you could ask for in a city this size. Museums, the Art District, clubs and much more. The Hollywood sign and Hollywood walk of fame are some of the main tourist attractions, but there is so much more to see here.
