If your dream of living in San Francisco has been stalled because of the ultra-high cost of living, you may want to check out this new job posting that only offers free room and board and a $130,000 yearly salary, but an incredible view of the bay. The East Brother Light Station is looking for a couple to tend to the lighthouse and bed & breakfast located on an island in San Pablo Bay, which is a tidal estuary that forms the northern extension of San Francisco Bay. Currently, it is run by Che Rodgers and Jillian Meeker, but they're looking to hand over the keys to the 145-year-old lighthouse to the right couple. Idea candidates will operate a five-room inn, serving both dinner and breakfast, as well as all other tasks from chef to maid. The inn is open four days a week, and the island is also available for day use and special events. The only special requirement is that you must possess a Coast Guard commercial boat operator's license to ferry guests to the 0.7 acre island and know the island offers no television or Wi-Fi on the island. You can apply for the job now with the new inn-keepers to start mid-April after two weeks of training.
