    Description

    We are a Stu and Hannah, partners working on our beautiful retreat center. Stu works in software but is also a yoga instructor and retreat facilitator. A few years ago we moved to this spectacular a 14-acre property in the beautiful San Diego mountain town of Julian and we have been working on the property ever since! There is a three bed, two bath home which we share with our two kids. 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 potential. Much of what we'd like help with is building trails, setting up cabin and camp sites, clearing brush and maintaining existing infrastructure. Light housework or organizational projects are welcome, too. LGBTQ+ friendly.

    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.

    We have a 5th wheel trailor available to stay in. This has a kitchen and bathroom. We may do some shared meals, but for the most part, you'll cook for yourselves :). Lots of natural beauty here, great hiking nearby.

  • What else ...

    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.
