Come enJoy beautiful Santa Cruz, CA and help us with some projects around the house. We have two larger projects and many smaller ones, and you'd have plenty of free time to enjoy everything our area has to offer. You will have your own bedroom in our upstairs flat to stay in while you're here, so couples, friends traveling together, and families are welcome. We also might possibly take the opportunity to get away for a few days during your stay, in which case we would need you to stay in our (downstairs) part of the house and take care of our dog and two cats.
We are looking for people to stay around 2 weeks, but we are flexible about the dates. Anytime between now and the end of August will work for us.
