I found a home away from home at this coliving space, a community I didn't realize I was missing. During my two months there, Inge, Juan, their children, Micho, Ana, Nexar, and the whole family became like my own. This place will always hold a special spot in my heart. I'm truly grateful for everything. ❤️

I had an incredible experience at this coliving space! It's truly one-of-a-kind. The people here are so welcoming and friendly which made my stay feel like a home away from home. The workspaces are fantastic and being so close to the beach, just a minute away on foot, was amazing. It provided the perfect balance of work and relaxation. I met new people, practiced my Spanish, went surfing, and learned new things. It was a great place to spend a month, and it's certainly a setting where you can thrive both professionally and personally. 😊

This was the best coliving experience we had in 7 months of traveling through South America! This coliving is not just a beautiful place with a stunning beach, but also a home for true connections, mutual help and rich exchanges. I was able to work online while my son played with other children, we had meals together and there was even a Montessori school nearby that my son loved. It's a family and community environment that will be missed!

This is a wonderful place. Friendly people, simple living, surrounded by nature, a quiet beach. It is not very touristy and feels authentic. It is a great place to work from because it has co-working spaces and fast wifi. I would visit again and recommend to anyone who is looking to get away and spend time in a peaceful place. I'm really grateful I got to stay here. It's nice to see that places like this coliving exist in the world.

An amazing place to stay in Santa Marianita! Stunning view, beautiful beach, great vibe, great kitchen, clean and warm shower... Amazing place to work. Totally recommend for people who want a break in a small remote village.

This place is probably one of the best for whale observation. The house is well maintained and the owners are super welcoming. A must go to.
