  • Description


    It's believe that we live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Just hours from Yosemite, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, California. USA Right in the middle of California on an acre palm tree farm. A small family with much to offer to those who enjoy the beautiful out doors to the big city adventures. Our home is located in the country with outstanding views of the snow capped mountains. We are blessed with great weather though most of the year. Our six bedroom home is shared with myself, my early twenty year old daughter(she is one of four) and our four amazing Labradors. Our family has all grown up, many friends and family have lived with us through the 25 years we have called this place home. We have many accommodations to offer as well as a wonderful opportunity for those who would like to travel and experience beautiful California.

  • Help


    Being that our home is older there are many repair projects needed. Plumbing, electrical, landscaping, painters, construction and lots of handyman work. Any mechanical skills would be excellent. The palm tree farm, gardens and yard is always in need of works to maintain.

    Most helpful for our family at this time is the need for help selling our belongings. We are hoping to welcome individuals who are interested in vintage fashion to antiques and are good with computers, photos and managing sales. We have collected so much stuff through the years that needs to be sold. We welcome seamtricies to sew and create their own projects, for we have lots to offer in materials, supplies and tools. Our goal is to sell everything and build a tiny house.

    Downsizing to simpler living will also include repair and construction of a few vintage trailers as well. We have four vintage trailers that are in need of LOVE.

    We are only 20 minutes from the Amtrak station and an international airport. We are not on the city bus line, but rides to are easily possible. I do travel for work accationally and could help with travels to the big cities.
