The Turret House is located in the neighbourhood Portillo in the indigenous village San Sebastian Rio Hondo, a much more peaceful and authentic - and much less touristy! - place than San Jose Del Pacifico (20 minutes away).

This private house with wifi is at the edge of town, facing a beautiful forest. There are wooden walls and ceiling and a little turret that bathes the house in sunlight. There are two rooms - a kitchen / diner with gas cooker and a living room / bedroom with fireplace.

Stedet
The Turret House is a part of "Kopacabanas", a local communitary project that aims to create an ecologically, culturally and economically sustainable type of tourism. "Be a neighbour, not a tourist!" Kopacabanas rents out empty, renovated rooms, houses and farms of ordinary people from town - in this way locals directly benefit from tourism, and visitors can much more easily become integrated in the daily life of the village.

The family Velasquez Ruiz lives next door to the Turret House and they invite you with open arms! This property is also their farm – so you might be able to feed the goats, turkeys and chickens, harvest corn or learn from Ana how to make real tortillas from scratch; or Vicente can point you in the right direction for walks on beautiful forest paths. Or just enjoy the full privacy of the house, as you please...

The Turret House has a double bed with a very comfortable mattress, and a single bed with a futon mattress. There is also room on the floor for two more people IF YOU BRING YOUR OWN TRAVEL MAT AND SLEEPING BAG. There are various blankets available for the beds. At this altitude (2500m) nights can get very cold, but the house warms up nicely with a fire.

The toilet and the wood-fired shower are shared with the host family and two other cabanas which are for rent on the same property. One of the other cabanas is situated right across the shared patio.

Bed sheets and toilet paper are included - towels are not.

There is a simple kitchen with a gas stove, pots and pans, plates and cutlery, and the basics for cooking (such as oil, salt, sugar) all included (at least for short stays). If items such as toilet paper or oil are missing, please do not hesitate to remind the host family.

There is electricity in the house, and delicious spring water in a tap just outside the front door.

Gas, firewood, wifi and electricity are included in the price for stays of up to one week. Beyond that you will get a large weekly or monthly discount but in return we ask for a fair contribution towards these utilities.

San Sebastián Río Hondo, Oaxaca, Mexico

San Sebastian Rio Hondo is an indigenous village in transition between ancient culture and modern life. It is a very peaceful and family-friendly place. We treasure the great relations between locals and foreigners and wish it continues like this. There is very little tourism here – most people who are not originally from here live here permanently.

In this traditional village you will find a thriving artisanal scene (wool, cotton, pottery, wood), an alternative Montessori school, a yoga centre with a temazcal, an art gallery, small communities inside the bigger community of the village. There are fairly regular musical jam sessions, yoga and meditation classes, womens' circles, a recording studio, dance classes, chess nights, frequent village parties, the occasional medicine ceremony, many artists and conscious families.

The innocence which still exists in this village surrounded by oak and pine forests depends on the humility of those who come to visit. It is important to deeply respect the warm but conservative culture. If you're only passing by on your way to the beach or if you just come to party, San Jose Del Pacifico or San Mateo might be more suitable places for you.

You can find basic food and a good selection of fruit and veggies in small shops around town without a problem but if you have special needs you might want to consider bringing items from Oaxaca, Miahuatlan or Pochutla.

There are many beautiful unmarked forest trails to be explored. Especially recommended are walks to San Mateo, San Jose, and the old-growth forest around the mountaintop La Postema behind San Jose.

There is half-decent wifi in the house and several cybercafes around town but sometimes, especially in the rainy season (May - September), the internet occasionally drops out from the whole village. There is no cell phone signal in the village except for a few spots where there is a direct line of sight to Miahuatlan (about 500m from the house).

There is no ATM in the Sierra Sur mountains, the closest ones are in Pochutla (coast) or in Miahuatlan (in the direction of Oaxaca). There is also nowhere to change dollars (go to Oaxaca for not too terrible rates).

Under oppholdet ditt
I am Martin, the founder of the Kopacabanas project. I have lived in these mountains for four years and I am trying to create a stronger local economy in order to give people an alternative income to cutting trees, and to give young people an alternative to going to cities or to the US to find work.

I speak Spanish, English, Norwegian and a little bit of Portuguese and French.

I live about 1 km away from The Turret House. I will send you instructions on how to go straight there so it is possible that we will never see each other. But I am available to help with anything, just send me a message before or during your stay and I will drop by soon...
