    *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.

    From Johnny, Dana, Arina, Phillip, Nemo and the rest of the family<3

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    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!

    It's super easy to get here from Dumagete City, Bohol, Cebu and Mindanao. We are already familiar with most routes so just tell us where you're coming from and we can help you get here 😊
