  • Description


    We have one of the first places to stay in picturesque Zipolite. It is an oasis tucked above the beach with rustic cabanas, a restaurant, an arthouse cinema space where multiple projects are born. We have a small library that fosters conversations between travellers. Antonio, the owner, has been here for 40 years and has a wealth of knowledge about the area as well as great stories. This is a truly special and unique experience of this pocket of the world.

    In exchange we will provide a room in one of our cabañas, as well as a true experience of Zipolite. This is a central meeting spot for travellers and locals alike, with a serene setting of community and creativity. The cinema provides access to thousands of films and the screenings bring a wide range of people for great conversations as well as truly independent creative works.

  • Help


    We are looking for Workawayers who are willing to do a bit of everything as we all do here. Some help in the small kitchen for breakfasts where we all help. Ocasional cleaning of a room (which we all do when the main staff is not available). Some assisting with screenings/ events in the cinema. We need people who are happy to mix up their routine, but also who are reliable and intuitive about what needs to be done. Any extra skills are appreciated.

    You have 2 days off a week, and we require you work 5 hours a day, 5 days a week.

    With your time off you have access to the beach and town, as well as various small towns close by such as Mazunte, Puerto Escondido, Puerto Angel etc. You can go snorkelling, surfing, or simply embrace the tranquil environment of playa life. This is a place where you can explore your own projects as well, whatever they may be. The property is large and there are multiple spaces to do your own thing.
