(found on Craig's List 11/20/2010. I'm sure there are a lot of these "below the radar" mini-communities out there not on anyone's list that I'd love to get better integrated with the cohousing movement - if you reach out to or join the community, please encourage them to contact us. Note the links below will only work while the underlying Craig's List ad is active, so don't delay! -- Raines)
A four room cabin is available ($1000/month) in a small co-housing type community on five acres in the Soquel hills. The land is beautiful south facing slope with hot tub and gardens, three miles up Old San Jose Rd.. There are three other houses in our little village, housing nine adults, and one 9 year old. The cabin has a kitchen, den, loft bedroom, and full bathroom. It can house a single person or a single parent. Cable internet is available. We are looking for someone with interest and experience living in community. We share potluck dinners once a month. Community mates are expected to share in maintaining the landscape. Our values include eating organic food, conserving energy, yoga, personal growth, and non-violent communication. A good personal fit with the rest of the community is the most important criteria. No dogs. No smoking.
Available Jan. 1. (More photos on the Craig's List page)
