In 2015 we decided to leave the city and live our dream -- to live in a home by the beach. Our place now has five beach huts for rent and an area to pitch tents. Surf season here is from Nov - Feb (North Swell), and August (South Swell, during rainy season), though we operate all year round.
We are located in the small town of San Felipe in Zambales, easily accessible by bus from major city Manila only 4-5 hrs away (could be longer) depends on the traffic in the city, and then a tricycle from the town proper to our humble abode. The locals here are friendly and the vibe here is very chill. It's quiet on the weekdays and gets busy on weekends. We basically just need help maintaining the grounds, huts, and bathrooms clean. Other type of work would when we need any repairs or repainting and the like. We mostly work with bamboo.
We enjoy meeting people and making new friends, learning new recipes, listening to adventure stories and chill music, and doing some artsy stuff.

You will experience Filipino hospitality, and could learn some Tagalog. We also have plenty of recipes to share! You will definitely make new friends, and will most of all enjoy the beach life! You might even learn to surf or skimboard!
We need help with maintaining cleanliness like:
•Sweeping the grounds
•Making sure the huts and bathrooms are clean before and after the guests use them
•Emptying trash bins
• Minor repairs like replacing a broken door knob or replacing some worn out bamboo
It would be great if you are someone with skills with carpentry, plumbing like replacing a faucet, gardening like watering the plants (only during the dry season) or replanting trees.
We have 5 friendly resident dogs that we feed, bathe and love.
When we have guests we prioritize our attention and services to them.
We usually are fully booked on weekends. Weekdays are not always busy so these are our rest days were we can schedule some improvements or repairs.
This is our dream come true living by the sea and we put up this humble place to sustain ourselves whilst demonstrating simplicity and sustainability.
For our workaway volunteers we provide hammock or mattress on the floor in our 2 story bamboo house or tent inside our fenced in property.
You can always go to beach on your free time. There is also waterfalls nearby and a skateboard ramp.
You can jog on the beach early morning.
Help fishermen pull in their nets.
You can just relax, play the guitar or ukelele, and sing songs.
