I met my neighbors guests visiting from the Netherlands, and they were 
delighted with our cohousing community. They didn't think there was any 
cohousing the the Netherlands, so I'm forwarding your message to them. 

No, there is no cohousing in Orange county. I tried staring a community in 
Santa Monica, knowing the odds were against us because the is no cohousing 
anywhere in Southern California. When our group fell apart I gave up and moved 
to Cambridge, MA.

I have visited all the cohousing in Central California, the ones in the San 
Francisco Bay Area, and three in Arizona. Keep an eye on the listings in the directory. One month offers frequently come up.
