  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We have internet of course. Easy bike or car access to redwoods, beaches, downtown cafes, public transportation or plan activities with us to visit Carmel, SF, Napa, etc. So much to do here in SF Bay Area. We are a multicultural family of Italian, Mexican and Californian heritage. We are writers and readers and entrepreneurs and outdoor nature people. We are healthy and active and always very curious about people and culture. We dont really need you to help out with anything but we do like to eat together on the patio so if you want to help cook, thats great, but otherwise bring your excellent conversation. We have a small garden should someone be inclined to assist with that, and we have two friendly outdoor cats named Maui and Philipe who are very independent.
