  • Description


    world traveler settled in Southern Baja 20 years ago, Mexico and Latin America expert, cultural philosopher, journalist and docu filmmaker, ideologically 100% off the grid - created a 2 acre palm plantation 10 years ago which I am now converting into a perennial paradise for temporary hermits, writers, composers, ponderers and busy brains.

    you need to be ready to spend 21 + days here --- no shorter stays considered.

    this opportunity is located a few miles outside of La Paz, Baja Sur, 1 mile from the bay, no transport provided
    frequent and cheap public transport, bring your bike etc

    fresh breakfast juice, quality lunch and espresso provided daily
    - you are responsible for your own breakfast and dinner, snacks, drinks etc
    you can comfortably prepare your own meals in outdoor kitchen. basic stores in walking distance

    work on your novel, script, unauthorized autobiography or 10th symphony (88 key Kurzweil available)
    strong WIFI, both solar and grid power, osmosis water purifier, outdoor compost toilet
    outdoor shower, outdoor kitchen

    no hard work, but a few hours a day of pruning and palm care
    and forest maintenance stuff, must appreciate a big dog

    reliable self motivated and self cleaning people

    good fit for single person who wants peace and quiet,
    balanced couple and young family

    perfect if you travel in your own vehicle, van, etc and
    just want to chill for a few weeks

    people with actual skills preferred.

    A skill is the ability to perform an action with determined results often
    within a given amount of time, energy, or both. This excludes goat yoga etc.

    please look up Southern Baja up on a MAP _before your start dreaming.
    this is a Desert. This region is not like Miami, Montreal nor Málaga.

    let's discuss.
