  • Descripción


    Boutique resort in the Pacific Coast region of Costa Rica. We are a small luxury resort mostly catering to large groups such as weddings, divorce parties, family reunions, birthday parties. We have 3 salt-water pools and extensive gardens. There are dogs and street dogs, so if you are afraid of dogs, this will not work for you. We provide all-inclusive options for our guests and because we are boutique, we are able to craft special and unique experiences. We are a very private property with "speakeasy" vibes. An oasis hidden amongst the other businesses nearby. We are a 3-minute walk to the beach. Our goal is to continue to be very considerate of how we can make a luxury experience in Costa Rica when materials are limited. The owners are a designer and an engineer. We also have a spa so if you like you get your nails done, we have about 500 colors to pick from.

    Opportunities: The availability of these is dependent on the season.

    At least one month commitment. We can do longer stays depending on what you want to do.

    - Content creation: Help us build our brands. We have done many fantastic weddings and retreats. We simply haven't had time to promote in a way that will help us build our brands. We could do 2 people at the same time for this one as there are many brands.

    - Sculpture building

    - Childcare help: We have a 3.5 year-old girl that loves art, dance, music. She goes to school during the school year, but I still have a remote job and need help when she is out of school when I am on work calls.

    - Hospitality help

    - General tidying

    The Team:
    Tactical team is 5 full-time people and 3 part-time such as: Lead cleaner, Lead F&B, Lead Facilities, Spa, Guard. Associate Operations.

    The family:
    Mom, dad, kiddo, and grandma. Grandma does not live at the house. There are doggos as well: Falkor, Boots, and Jupiter. Jupiter is mostly at the resort. We sometimes bring Boots over to play with him and Cat. Falkor is a Cavalier and 12 years old. Cat just showed up one day and hasn't left. She fights raccoons but is generally sweet to humans. She is an outdoor cat and lives at the resort, at least we think she does.

    There is a distributed team that is not local that assists with Intake and other services.

    We can accept groups traveling together but not families with children.

    Message answer recommendations:
    We get a lot of messages and we have a set of questions you can send us answers to that will help us with screening. If you are traveling in a group of 2, we ask you answer separately. This is for planning of roles.

    a) What 3 questions would you ask to understand someone who is a) younger than you (by 10 years) b) older than you (by 15 years) c) same age as you (within 3-5 years). They can be the same or different questions.

    b) In a context you can't communicate with someone in the same language, what do you do?

    c) Quiet afternoon and there are no guests but you have a shift, what would you be interested in doing around a hotel?

    AI/ML/ChatGPT responses will be immediately rejected. I'm a published expert in these algorithms. Your AI won't show up for a cultural exchange, we ask you to show up authentically in messaging.

    Primary shifts from 630am-1030am and 4-9pm.

You can take sailing lessons at the shop nearby, rent a moto bike or bicycle. There are yoga and Pilates classes nearby and massages on the beach.
