As a family, we have enjoyed making memories in Cuba, building an orphanage in Belize, and surfing in beautiful Sayulita, Mexico. We love being stretched by new experiences, meeting new people, learning and growing from every connection, and discovering the beauty in every BEing.
This property has been my residence since I was twelve years old, and I gotta say, it's a pretty special place! We built the custom home 8 years ago with my parents and siblings, and have enjoyed living in community for 8 years! The property boasts 3 unique spaces - 2, 3000 square foot homes in the main building and a private country cottage as well. The entire space can host up to 22 guests at a time! A fabulous place for family gatherings, weddings and special events.
Life has since moved us out and onto other adventures, but we didn't want to sell the property, so we decided to share it with the world instead! We opened our doors in the summer of 2015, and have thoroughly enjoyed meeting amazing guests from all over the globe!
My parents, Rolf & Sharon still manage the property and live on site, and they love connecting with guests and ensuring your vacation is one to remember!
We look forward to meeting you, and hearing your story.
