Bob, keep in mind that I asked Mike (Fishbuck) if that was a price for double occupancy only, and he said yes... So the room is $100 a night. The one staff with benefits, is for the whole complex unless each room has its own personal valet. Of course, if Mike only has one room rented a night, then yes, $25 of the $100 (not $50) is for staff.

If costs climb then don't include the cost of meals in the future.

A staff of one at $25/day is not going to do all the cooking, cleaning and maintenance. 25/day ain’t good pay for a competent do-it-all staff, and no employee will want to do it all. Does fishead cook, clean and maintain? How’s he going to have time to do that when he is going to be spending all his time as fishing guide and flying air ambulance for all the injured gringos from his motocross track with half pipe?

Nobody said it would be a one employee operation. Bob & Susan can advise best as perhaps a similar-size operation (but vastly different accommodations/ clientele, probably). When we stayed there-there was one local woman who set up the breakfast in the morning and did housecleaning in the afternoon. That's what I recall. I think we were the only guests? So odd that a little heat scares folks from Baja in July!

The post-apocalypse landscaping isn’t my cup of tea. Why did u scrape the earth bare? You hate plants? You like dust?

The native plants of the desert are beautiful, a shame you to got rid of them.

Maybe Fishbucks private nursery he is starting could help. I know that finding stuff to grow in salt is difficult - but hey - fishy is creating a magical nirvana out of nothing but his imagination - so inventing salt tollerant trees should be no problem!

"double occupancy only" No sense in that, excluding solos. Price accordingly vis a vis number of guests, number of days, tours, meals, pick-up/delivery (a "package" deal). Especially in beginning stage of development, you'd want repeat business. You might even have a camp site or two - would be attractive with meals included, fishing boat available - flat price for a breakfast, dinner (de jour).

Only if they cheat. Fish are not on their menu. Only plant based foods.

Fishbuck, go forward.
We leased our villa in Bajamar for many years, we've hosted wedding parties, funerals, race teams, corporate events, etc.

Eventually, you will develop a core group of repeat customers. Always reward loyalty and make it special when you can.

Retired SoCal Rockwell/Boeing, we made rockets, not planes:)

Yes i do have a runway

Ironically the second part of your statement
"I deliver" is not true in any way shape or form, unless you count coming up with harebrained schemes with no intent of ever following through! - you deliver a lot of those!

I was informed by the "Halibut Whisperer", my friend Corey, that a fish eating vegan is known as "Pescatarian".
It's part of our "beach culture" so you probably wouldn't understand.
You have to live it...

I know where there is a little yurt on the beach...

What is the name of your runway.
I will be making a goodwill tour of all open runways as soon as I can get it together.
It ain't easy or cheap so takes time to plan.
Please be patient. I'm working on it daily.
