    Description

    I am a yoga instructor and retreat facilitator. A few years ago I moved to a spectacular a 14-acre property in the beautiful San Diego mountain town of Julian which my partner, Hannah, and I are converting into a retreat center. There is a three bed, two bath home which we share with Hannah's daughter and our 18 month old baby. The land boasts a pond and the merger of two creeks. This is a sacred place that was a Kumayay Indian campground (you can an always find pieces of pottery after each rain storm). The land is rife with wildlife and has massive retreat center potential. Much of what we'd like help with is building trails, setting up cabin and camp sites, clearing brush and maintaining existing infrastructure.

    Julian is a tourist destination for many reasons. The area is lovely with local access to hiking and open space preserves. We are located about a little over an hour from the beach and 30 minutes from the Anza-Borrego desert.

  • What else ...

    Julian is very rural. For your own best interest, please apply only IF YOU HAVE A CAR.

    While our property is beautiful, we find that our workawayers have the most fulfilling experience if they can take advantage of what the region has to offer... beaches, desert, mountain hikes, Mexico... all accessible by car only. Even walking into the town of Julian is too far to be practical more than once. We are not available to loan out our cars, so having a means to get around is a must.
