  • Description


    I fell in love with beautiful Mompiche, moved here and started to build my dream house in 2006. It is a five-story bamboo house, built like a wedding cake. The top floor has a spectacular 360-degree view, with views from the shower and the toilet too!
    Mompiche is a quaint fishing village with a pristine 40-mile crescent moon bay. From October to April there are world-class waves, attracting surfers from around the world. It is surrounded by jungle with monkeys and tons of birds, including toucans and parrots.
    I am a massage therapist from Esselen, Big Sur, California with more than 40 years of experience.
    Chocolate making, basket weaving, and coconut cracking classes are available. Tours of the jungle and yoga can be arranged. You can explore the incredible surrounding area on foot or in kayaks, on horseback, or on a motorboat.

    I am charging $10 a week for all the bottled water you can drink and a bed in my dream house. I offer 5 breakfasts and 5 dinners for $30. I only ask for 15 hours of work a week. By the way, I am a very Delicious and healthy cook. Please let me know when you want to come, how long you plan to stay and if you plan to join us for the meals.
    I have a 2-week minimum. Firm.

    Here is last week's menu so you can get an idea of how well I treat my volunteers.

    Breakfast all come with a Pot of Tea or Fresh Brewed Coffee

    Friday - Lungustinos Encocado this is Giant Prawns cooked in Coconut milk w/rice & Brownies made from Local Cacao & Banana/Pineapple/Rum Daiquiris

    Lugustinos (giant prawns) are seasonal and not always available, but I always try to do something special on Fridays to show appreciation for the weeks work.

    The meals are big part of the experience here at the Casa , so please let me know if you plan to participate in the meals and how long you expect to stay. Thanks.

    Please, absolutely NO tobacco in the house. Firm.

    We have just taken down the front of the house and are putting up a new Bamboo Front with a new entrance with new stairs. Next, we will be replacing floorboards and putting up some Bamboo walls.
    I am in need of a plumber to help me connect my new washing machine. An electrician to help put up more lights.
    I am looking for 4-6 people to come help. The hard and dirty work of cleaning and curing the Bamboo is finally done and now on with the much easier fun work of varnishing all the bamboo in this tall house.
    I am also looking for someone with talent in organization skills.
    I need someone to help with some cement work. Also, I am saving bottles to make a bottle wall, If anyone has any experience with making walls with bottles, this would be a big plus!
    There are also many construction projects, so if you have any experience with this then get in touch. There is a lot of finish work to be done like shelves, doors, and cabinets.
    If you are an artist & want to work and make things with Bamboo this is the place.
