  • Description


    Welcome Workawayers!

    Come and visit us in lovely Ben Lomond, California which is located in the Santa Cruz Mountains. We could use help with indoor and outdoor projects which are mostly gardening and maintenance projects, and possibly, some editing of videos if that’s one of your talents.

    We have enjoyed traveling to Europe, Central America and we love going on road trips in the U.S.A. We also have two little dogs.

    Our town is small and unique and we are close to markets, pubs, and restaurants.

    We are an energetic couple and we are looking forward to hosting and making new friends through Workaway. Hopefully, this sounds like a fun opportunity to you!

    Thank you for checking out our listing! Please email us with any questions.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We would love to share our culture, meals, activities and our home with you. If you would like to improve your English, we can help with that too. We are excited to meet you and we would love for you to meet our family and friends while you are staying with us. We think you will have a wonderful cultural experience here!

  • Aide


    We would appreciate help with any of the following, depending what we will be working on during the time that we can host. We have a number of projects that are neither difficult or strenuous. We could work together & individually on projects. Projects such as: basic maintenance, painting, gardening , yard help, DIY projects, arts & crafts projects, organizing, or cleaning.

    The help needed would be 4-5 hours a day for 5 days, and 2 days off. It can get quite warm during the summer months, so working during the cool mornings would be ideal.

    We are only 20 minutes from the beautiful Pacific Coast and we are located in the Santa Cruz Mountains. We are near many beautiful parks and the redwoods. Our area has many wonderful places to see, and there is a lot to do! Most things are close by, and can be reached by the Metro Bus system or we can drive you if we go out to do errands in Santa Cruz or in town. I enjoy taking guests on a tour of the area in which we live! It’s beautiful here!

  • Hébergement


    Hello Workawayer,

    We can currently host 1 person for up to 2 weeks. We have a comfortable home and we will provide a private room with one queen size bed for you.

    You will have access to our guest bathroom in our home. We will provide 3 meals a day, some meals will be self-served (on your own but food items provided).

    We will respect your space. Mutual respect is appreciated. If you like to cook, we can cook together or you may cook at anytime! Help with cooking would be much appreciated but not expected. If you like specialty food and drink items, we have a market only 1 mile from our home.

    We have two bicycles that you can use while you are here.

    We adore meeting new people, conversing, and hosting international guests. We eat mostly a plant based diet but we do prepare some meat dishes too. Vegans and GF folks are welcome!

    We would love to host guests that are helpful, friendly, self sufficient, and tidy. If you enjoy getting up fairly early and getting on with the day (start tasks by 9:00am) with a good attitude, getting the tasks done and then having the rest of the day free, this is the place for you!

    Things we enjoy doing: listening to music, dancing, playing table tennis, board games, spending time outdoors, bird watching, cooking and more.

    We know of nice running trails where you could go for a run or a hike. We would like to take you on a tour of the area, and or give suggestions of some fantastic places for you to see in the Monterey Bay Area!

    Please note: Our neighbourhood is quiet with many nice neighbors nearby. Quiet time here is after 10:00 pm and before 8:00 am. We are usually in bed by 10:00, but you can of course stay up later. We just ask that the television and music are quiet after 10:00. Outdoor voices need to be quiet after 10:00 so our neighbours aren't disturbed. Thanks!

    Our area: Beautiful Santa Cruz Mountains, backyard creek, riparian corridor, friendly neighbourhood
    Wildlife: You will see many types of birds, wild turkeys, squirrels, and most likely some deer. Racoons are sometimes seen at night. We live in the mountains, but we are 20 minutes from the coast with easy access to the highways. A great location!

    We are excited to meet you and host you in our home!
