The Terra & Complete Off-Grid Setup:

Plot 44 is exceptional in size & landscape due to the furrow that runs through the property and a small, mature fruit plantation consisting of pineapples, papayas, lychee & moringa olifera trees. The foundation and beginning walls for earthbag guest home Panta Rei (ancient Greek for “everything flows”) and the camp setup are also on plot 44. The trench on Plot 44 allows for easier access to build stairs into the coral rock directly down to the ocean, where the owners received planning permission to build a floating dock in order to access the property from the ocean. Another unique feature of this setup is the adjoining plot 45, providing greater possibilities with substantiallly more space and freedom to build. 

The added bonus in this unique package deal is the ability to step right into living the dream without the arduous and costly ordeal of shipping goods from overseas and paying high tariffs to Customs officials.​
