  • Description


    Sanctuary for relaxation, meditation and detoxification retreats in the lovely small town of Tepoztlán, Morelos, Mexico. Tepoztlán is known as "Pueblo Magico" or Magic Town (UNESCOS towns), a well known tourist destination less than an hour away from Mexico City on the motorway and very easy to get to by bus from DF. This functions as a B&B guesthouse with different options/packages. We have five guest rooms, a spacious living room with patios and beautiful gardens. It is very tranquil, peaceful and relaxed.

    My name is Anosha. I have created and run the place mostly single handed, with the help of Angelica who cooks, cleans (we share the work), and a gardener.

    Over the years we have created excellent reputation, especially on Tripadvisor. Our aim has been to provide an urban refuge for people to come to recharge, relax and reconnect with nature and spirit. There are not many places that offer this detoxification program with B&B and we do our best to provide the best possible service.

    LOOKING FOR HELP towards the end of JULY and MONTH of AUGUST 2017. May go into SEPTEMBER too.
    We are in the process of moving to new premises and are going to need help with carpentry ( nothing too complicated, a general knowledge of carpentry would be sufficient). Also looking for help with replanting/landscaping of the new garden Some basic building skills would also be very useful.
    We need to prepare our new house for clients, so the above mentioned skills would be most helpful to us.

    CARPENTRY: attaching doors to kitchen units, putting up shelves to prepare closets, kitchen cabinets, etc.
    BASIC BUILDING SKILLS, some painting if needed.
    GARDEN HELP: clearing away old stuff, and replanting with new plants. This may need a strong guy/s that enjoy creating beautiful garden space and working outdoors.
    Helping with the move.

    While the new house is being completed, we are staying in the origina building. The new house is spacious, full of light,with beautiful grounds. You will enjoy being and working there.
    Looking forward to hear from you.
