We have a beautiful large house in a large walled garden with plenty of shade. This listing is for our Mandala room, the master suite which has it's own bath and shower room and a queen size bed.

We also offer beds in shared rooms (all inclusive of food etc. as below) . Please inquire for this option. Wifi is included.

Morning Juice, vegan lunch and light evening meal is included, as is morning yoga class, evening workshop and access to our healing program.

About the neighbourhood
Our house is set in very large walled gardens in a suburban area of Puerto Escondido called La Punta. Although there is sometimes music from neighbours, cockerels crowing, dogs a barking and occasional advertising vans playing there slogans ('Gas de Oaxaca' :-), The Sanctuary is still a peaceful place.

A 500 metre walk will see you standing on the beach where you can swim or just hang out. From there a 20 minutes walk one way will take you to the famous Zicatela surfers beach, and 5-10 minute walk in the opposite direction will take you closer to La Punta with some tourist/surfer restaurants and shops & to the point where there are also lots of surfers.

A collectivo (shared taxi) ride into town takes you to the central market which is about a 10 minute ride away and cos...

How to get there
Airport: Puerto Escondido: 9.7 km

Coming from Puerto Escondido centre, heading on the highway in the direction of Pochutla and Huatulco, take the first turn right to La Punta, at Rubi's mini-super. At the bottom of the hill turn left into Brisas de Zicatela heading away from the sea (do not turn right towards Casa Mar and the sea), go past Internet Zicatela and take the second turn left into Quintana Roo. You will then see our beautiful house (see picture above) half a block ahead of you.

Alternatively, on the highway you could continue past Rubi's mini-super and take the 1st concrete road turn right into Quintana Roo (no sign). Continue 1.5 blocks and you will see our house.

Transfer from Bus station: You can take a taxi ( 40 pesos). Tell them: The Sanctuary, 'un centro de sanaci...
