  • Description

    Description

    We live in the Santa Cruz mountains, about 15 minutes by car from the University in a neighborhood called Bonny Doon. I am a busy physician and have most of my time to orient you to the household and work on projects on Friday, sat, sun. So I prefer a Thursday arrival. I have 1 housemate and 3 other people live on the property in a cabins or RV. This is a sweet quiet spot in the redwoods, and I have a large sunny garden.
    There is fairly limited public transportation but a lot of coming and going with all of the folks who live here.
    I am now vaccinated against Covid 19 and two other people that live on the land are. Don't apply unless you are not willing to be or are already vaccinated.
