We are a small vacation rental establishment on the coast of northern Baja California, near Rosarito, about a 45 minute drive south from the US border at San Diego/Tijuana.
The house is very large with 6 bedrooms, including one separate "casita". It's really a special place, perched on a cliff and overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The house had been empty for several years and in disrepair when we took it over, but we are gradually bringing life back to it and we can really use some helpers who are strong and able to do some heavy lifting.
PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT US UNLESS YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT HELPING AND HAVE THE SKILLS WE ARE ASKING FOR!!! Communication is key. We are looking for people who have more than just a minimal amount of experience and who have these SPECIFIC skills: Construction/Carpentry, Building, Landscaping, Plumbing, Electrical. Since we are a small establishment we can only host 2 people at a time, so it’s not a place to meet other people who are traveling solo. Couples are encouraged! If you give us 3-4 days a week, we will feed you the days you work and give you an awesome oceanfront place to stay! Most stays would be 1-2 weeks, but if we all agree and get along, can be longer. You would have a private room with a private bath.
Some of the skills/work needed--
-Demolition and clean up of a small structure on
the oceanfront deck.
-Gardening-- landscaping front yard.
-Building/carpentry-- flooring install, sheet
rock, building a wooden deck.
-exterior and interior painting
-Tile work for small bathroom reno
-Plumbing—new drain installation for adding a bathtub.
If you have any of these skills you are highly encouraged to contact us!!
Fun things to do in Rosarito:
There are restaurants, bars, markets and shops within a short walk or uber/taxi/bus ride. If you have a car we can plan outings for you to Valle Guadalupe (Baja's Tuscany) for wine tasting, sightseeing and shopping in Rosarito/Ensenada artisanal districts, or Tijuana's emerging world class Gastronomic District. Being on the coast there are many beach-related activities such as surfing, diving, fishing and kayaking, horseback riding, sunning and swimming. With our close proximity to Southern California we can also help you plan trips to the world famous San Diego Zoo, Sea World, Balboa Park, Museums, Disneyland, LA. We want to make your stay fun and memorable! There are so many things to do in Southern California and Baja.
