No Need to Go(a) Elsewhere
It?s private. It?s secluded. And it?s hidden -- literally. Hippie-chic oasis Elsewhere is a secluded beachfront property you?ll fall in love with from the start. One of the most unique aspects of this slice of paradise is the exclusive feel ? if you?re not staying there, you can?t find it. Elsewhere prohibits outside knowledge of its latitude and longitude unless you make a reservation.

Hippie-chic oasis Elsewhere is a secluded beachfront property you?ll fall in love with from the start. One of the most unique aspects of this slice of paradise is the exclusive feel ? if you?re not staying there, you can?t find it. Elsewhere prohibits outside knowledge of its latitude and longitude unless you make a reservation. The obscure information you will find on their website: ?We are on a spit of land jutting out into the sea, cut off from the mainland by a salt water creek. Access to Elsewhere is via a 70 meter long wooden foot bridge across a creek.? Just a hop, skip, and a jump across a creek and over a bridge.
Described by guests as ?heaven on earth? and ?simplicity as its best,? Elsewhere strives to be a getaway in the all senses of the word: where you go to feel as though you?ve been transported to a different world. It?s a word-of-mouth type of place, with little promotion other than its humble website. However, once you?ve heard about this natural sanctuary, it?s hard to resist seeing it for yourself.
With four Colonial Beach Houses and three candy-colored tents resting at the water?s edge, Elsewhere?s rustic, minimal decor and delectable cuisine is a nature lover?s dream. Though simple, Elsewhere ? set in a forest of towering coconut trees -- is full of character, ?meant for those who appreciate the things that time does not change,? according to its website.
Some fun(ny) perks:
- Turtle Hatching. Guests are encouraged to witness the reoccurring event of hatching turtle nests ? Elsewhere protects and guards turtles on their property so guests can enjoy this memorable wonder of nature.
- Catch of the Day. Elvis and Savio, sons of Simon the local fisherman, go out to sea everyday before dawn. Guests can watch their boat return to shore just after sunrise in order to see the catch of the day, which the staff will be happy to help barbecue for dinner.
Elsewhere runs like a mini hotel -- and while you?re naturally protected by the surrounding seawater, you won?t feel trapped. With personal laundry services, a doctor on call 24 hours a days, electric mosquito repellant in all accommodation, a car and a driver, yoga nearby, a vast menu of food, wine, and beer, this hidden oasis has everything you need for an escape from reality.
Elsewhere?s setting offers an abundance of birds and river life including Otters that nest only a few meters upstream from the tents ? if you?re lucky, you can see them swimming past the tents. Hop across a 60-meter-long bamboo bridge and skip along a sandy track (with appropriate shoes, of course) to check out different village houses.
If you?re looking for a different type of vacation, look no further than Elsewhere. It?s a corner of the world that is hard to stumble upon often.
