We are a family of four...sometimes five. Lovely coastal town of Little River, just three miles south of the beautiful village of Mendocino. Large, spacious house with over two acres of land. We are trying to turn the land into a sustainable farm with garden, chickens, and hopefully more. Kayaking, diving, hiking, beaches, theater, cafes, organics, farmers markets are a part of our beautiful community. Wildlife is abundant here. There are some beautiful trails to explore from here. But I must say that it is remote. There is no nightlife per se for young people. The bus runs once a day into the village and once a day back. I run into town some days and am glad to take you.
We eat healthy and drink wine! I am a yoga instructor. We are about 1/2 from the nearest beach. California is in a drought, so we are super water conscious here.
DIY and building projects
We speak English and Spanish and this is one of the MOST BEAUTIFUL places on this earth. Much to explore and I am glad to help.
Help in the garden harvesting, weeding, etc. Also I have some painting and staining around the property to be done. Depending upon your skills, some general maintenance type of repairs would be great.
We have a room with shared bath to offer. 25 hours of help is asked a week. I cook dinner and supply food for breakfast and lunch (that you can make on your own). Plenty of room in the kitchen for you to store your snacks or make any extra meals. Could work with single parent with small child as well. There is also a loft above a workspace that could house another helper if I have two at a time.
There are buses that run along hwy 1 for transport that can take you in and out of the village of Mendocino. A small market, gas station, restaurant are within walking distance. The town of Mendocino is just 3 miles away. The beach is just a quarter mile. Kayaking, diving, hiking are the main attractions here. Mendocino has a lovely community with theater, shops, cafes and restaurants. I teach yoga one day a week in town and you are welcome to join me in class or hang out in town. Hours can be flexible. Again, we are remote here, so best for people not needing a lot of social stimulation.
