Work exchange deal

  • cabin

Small quiet warm & dry cabin which is very rustic -- you are basically camping -- water is carried in bottled, there is outdoor shower and outdoor loo. Plenty of room also to camp outdoors or to park a vehicle. 5 miles from beach, 14 miles from nearest town.
Note that camping on the beach is now illegal on Oregon coast, so this is the next best thing and is much safer and more pleasant, with hot meals and host on site, than being on the tourist track.

  • shared meals

Small breakfast, nice hot sit down meal together around 1130am, simple meal or cook your own at night.

  • no money is involved
