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 3 housemates and 3 other people live on the property in a cabin. 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.
Help in the house
you will learn about life in a rural part of santa cruz, that is very beautiful.
What I need help with: gardening, help building a retaining wall, planting, some home maintenance stuff such as painting. We also have a dog and a cat , and at times will need help with walking the dog.
