    If you are traveling through California you will probably enjoy our area. Its really beautiful and your town has a very healthy and active atmosphere. Nature is abundant, surfing is a culture here and there is a lot of beauty to enjoy.

  • Help


    we live in a very peaceful area close by the beaches and mountains. Santa Cruz county has a very interesting culture with a lot of students, surfers, hippies and tech people coming from San Francisco and Silicon Valley. We are a small family with a big garden where we receive friends for barbecues and to watch a beautiful sunset. My wife feels alone after to have a baby, she left her job for maternity leave and feels overwhelmed with the cleaning and gardering but she also enjoys to have company to walk by the beach and shopping. We for sure need help with organization in the house, clothes and garden
