Seeking new home on west side

Posted by: Michael Montondon on January 2, 2022


I am seeking a cozy space on the west side Feb 1st – A back house, studio or a room with private bathroom please.

I’m a Texan who moved to Big Sur to study at the Esalen Institute and have been in LA for 5 years developing a nonprofit, Bags Into Beds (we prevent plastic pollution and help the houseless). I also work as a deckhand on yachts.

I love to cook/garden, do yoga, spend time outside (mostly climbing, surfing or spearfishing), travel and be creative through improv and writing. I’m a considerate silly goose looking for a beautiful space that I’m inspired to take care of and contribute to.
Pansexual, open minded, spiritual and ever evolving.
Im not a partier and not noisy other than the occasional morning ohm chants.

Price range: ~$1400
I am an open book! Ask any questions that come to mind.

Hello, I am Michael Montondon - a 29 year old Texan moved to California in order to live at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur. I’ve been in Southern California for about 5 years now and have since founded of the nonprofit, Bags Into Beds. I am also a deckhand on yachts and am working my way to becoming a captain. For me, there are few things better than a some conversation around a fire, a day spent outside with friends, a dip in a hot spring or a beautiful sunset. I love farmers markets and cook wholesome meals almost every day (mostly vegetarian or vegan). Clean, very considerate, spiritual and hoping for a space that matches those things.
