  • Descripción


    Sam and I (Anita) have had the pleasure of living in Port Barton, Palawan, since 2016. In 2018 we started to build a house and project in a beautiful location overseeing the bay of Port Barton. We live alongside Uwe and Domino the dogs and BB the cat.
    We have a glamping and camping eco-resort and permaculture project open in 2019. We are developing our project with environmental low impact and sustainability, and trying our best to use energy and resources most efficiently.
    We apply permaculture principles where ever possible; Earth care, fair share and people care. We are trying to create a welcoming space, where people can connect with the beauty of the landscape and enjoy the breathtaking view of the Ocean, Mount Kapwas, pristine native jungle and the village of Port Barton. We are very lucky to be here and want to share this special place with people to enjoy, relax and experience the heartwarming community of Port Barton. Our place is multi use for accommodation for guests and volunteers, creative and educational workshops, and retreats. Profits from our accommodation goes back into community and marine conservation projects through our NGO.
    Please get in touch if you are interested in getting involved we would be happy to welcome you to our little piece of paradise.
