*Hey Everyone! we are welcoming anyone who needs a place to stay at this point. We understand there are many who are stuck here in the Philippines, and we want all to know they are welcome to join our family for these challenging days*
It's been a year since we've created our beautiful home in Malapascua Island, and now we're expanding into the mystical island of Siquijor!
We are currently staying in our simple native huts, in the middle of nature, just 5 minutes walk from the famous Paliton beach.
Our Chef, Phillip, is making us the most amazing vegan food! We are eating together 3 times a day during the week days, and on the weekends going out to explore the restaurants and bars nearby. There's a lot of parties and live music just a short ride away, and we all like to enjoy the good vibes every day:)
I won't write our whole philosophy here, since there's a time and a place for everything, but I'd just say we're here to do great things and we are proud to do what we do. We live in paradise really, and we like to celebrate it:)
The local community here is so kind and friendly, and the people are always happy to share good stories and culture. Smiles are everywhere we look.
Every afternoon we go together to Paliton Beach to see the sunset. It's truly something no one should miss here!
Our mission here is to extend the home for our community, and build a place which people can call home.
We are focused both on the journey of self discovery, and committed to support and help the local community.
Anyhow, let's talk more in private :)
It might takes a day or two, but we are committed to respond to every message. So please know your words will receive our full attention, even if it takes a little while.

Through work, you can learn a lot about native construction and carpentry, cooking, gardening, and so much more. if you're interested in the local culture, just talk to some of our local staff :) they are always happy to share their history with us!
We are building our home, there is a lot of work around. You can help to build bamboo huts, cook vegan food for everyone to enjoy, or just find how you could support the project with your personal skills the best. we need people that have awesome, interesting or artistic skills - people who want to come and become a part of our family here :)
We have a place here for anyone who would like to help! bring whatever you would like to bring, we are open to new ideas. :)

We offer a private cozy bamboo hut with a mosquito net and electricity plugs.
We have Western Toilets and cool Open air Bamboo Showers. a common area to chill, and a cool field kitchen where our chef does his magic;)
We have a pretty strong Wifi connection here, and it's free like our mineral water.
If you'd like to join our meals it's not a problem! just chip in to help us buy the ingredients:) The food we make here is just for ourselves. So the volunteers will be assisting to our chef who is the main person to cook the meals for everybody.
Wow. Where to start?
Siquijor Island has truly something for everyone. It's full of waterfalls, lakes, mountains, caves and beautiful beaches, fireflies, glowing plankton, reefs, shooting stars... Nature wise, It's heaven.
You can go snorkeling or diving, hiking, camping or just rent a motorbike and explore the island.
there's so much to see and do! you can go visit a healer, which is what this island is famous for.
We like to go explore new places on the island on our weekends, so you can always join us:)
We like to go out everyday at least for a drink, or for a bonfire on the beach. there's plenty of good bars and parties and honestly it's always fun when we do it together.
So yeah, hard to get bored around here!
