My husband and I would love to move to the Philippines next year for a year or two. It is just to get away from the western lifestyle, so we are aiming for a simple living. However, spending a whole year in a hammock is not our thing, so we would like a small business on the side just to keep us occupied. And because my dream has always been to have my own resort - which is impossible for us since we are not Philippines.
We would like to find a place we can lease, such as a small beach resort or a small coffee shop, while we are there. But I have looked everywhere but I cannot seem to find any online listings with such places?
Is it impossible to find a place to lease for such a short time?
Would we need to move to the Philippines before looking and then talk to people and spread the rumor that we are interested?
Is it a real hassle in regards to paperwork, taxes et.c.?
If it seems to impossible to find a lease, I have thought about some voluntary work which we might be able to do while living there.
Hope to hear from you
