    Room in Eco-Oriented Co-Housing Community -  $690

    Location:  Sebastopol
    We would like to rent out a room in our house to a community-minded individual. The room is available immediately on a month-to-month basis. We have a five-month-old baby who sleeps in our room. Our ideal roommate would be a good communicator, neat, and comfortable sharing space with a couple and a baby. A vegan or vegetarian is strongly preferred, but not required. Experience around babies of this age is also very desirable.

    The house is a small, two bedroom, one bathroom townhouse (~950 square feet) in the Two Acre Wood Co-Housing community (, which is about a 15 minute walk from downtown Sebastopol. This community of fourteen households includes a shared common house, gardens, fruit trees, woods, and weekly shared meals. The room for rent is a cozy unfurnished room with its own sliding door entrance/exit. The house has radiant floor heating with hardwood floors and a fully equipped kitchen with gas stove. Washer and dryer easily available next door for $1.25 per load. We don't have a television ourselves and prefer not to have a TV in the common space. Given the size of the home, we're looking for an individual rather than a couple.

    We have spent years living in shared households and are looking forward to finding the right fit to join us in our home. We are in our 30s/40s and have a fairly low-key lifestyle, enjoying spending many of our evenings and weekends at home. During the weekday Damien is an Project Manager at an ecological landscaping company and Maggie is a Communications Manager at the County of Sonoma. We both love time in nature, cooking with lots of spices, meditating, and discovering new poetry. Maggie has a weekly Biodanza practice, and is an organizer with the Village Building Convergence. Damien teaches Permaculture at the Sebastopol Permaculture Skills Center.

    We also live with a shy yet sweet border collie/cattle dog mix named Spring who loves belly rubs. Given the size of the home and the many animals that already live in our community, we don't want any more pets in our household. There will be an attic remodel sometime in the next six months which should not directly affect the rental room. We can negotiate a reduction or elimination of rent during that period of two to four weeks.

    If you are interested in the room, please send us an email with the answers to the following questions:
    (1) What kind of experience do you have living in community?
    (2) What kind of experience do you have around babies?
    (3) How neat/messy do you tend to be?
    (4) Do you have a sense of how long you would like to live here?
    (5) What are you like as a housemate (quiet/social/fun/thoughtful/energetic etc.)?

    Rent is $690 per month which includes all utilities with $690 for last month rent and $200 cleaning deposit due by end of first month. Work trade possible.

    If we feel you might be a good fit, we will email or call you back. Thank you for your interest.
