About Pablo Jenkins or David Jenkins
My name’s David and Casa Faro is the result of a 16-year joint effort between me and my youngest son Pablo (see above photo) who did the vast majority of Casa Faro's creative work and construction alongside his local friends and craftsmen. I am a Commercial Mediator & Flamenco guitarist born and raised as a 5th generation San Franciscan and Pablo (the 6th generation) is a creative builder, musician and organic farmer. Both Pablo and I have spent many years living here in Puerto Angel where we have not only worked alongside each other but also, to our great benefit and education, along side our many costeño friends with whom we have forged life-long friendships. Having come from an urban childhood, coastal Oaxaca is where I first encountered a region where every person (young or old) knows the name of every plant or tree in the forest and every fish in the sea and also knows their relationships, qualities and use. Beginning in 1971 in Salina Del Marquez (and here) I was taught by wiser friends how to cast a net, to dig a well or cut a tree…according to the cycles of the moon. My son Pablo had yet an even earlier start in this place of ancient beginnings where he and his friends have surfed, fished in the sea, planted in the soil and built from the very materials of the immediate environment.
Pablo Jenkins or David Jenkins purchased this House in 1998
Why Pablo Jenkins or David Jenkins chose Puerto Angel
I had spent some years in my late twenties living with my first wife and children throughout Mexico, Central America and Oaxaca's coastal regions. (In 1971 I had built a Palapa and dug a well while living in a small fishing village just west of Salina Cruz.) I returned to purchase this property in Puerto Angle by 1998 because of my love for Oaxaca's authenticity, the life-style it offers and especially because of the close friends (nearly family) that I had developed over my many years coming here as a visitor. I also knew that I would ultimately need to create a retreat where I could "go-to-ground" and find relief from an intense career in commercial mediation where I was delivering ADR services throughout the continental U.S. and Central America . I actually began building Casa Faro myself in the year 2000. Breaking ground, me and a local mason built the first floor, arched windows and door structures and then, in 2006, my youngest son. Pablo, returned to build the round brick tool warehouse, reinforce the 1st floor and add the second and third-floors, as well, terrace and plant the Garden (he and one other local co-worker also hand-terraced the entire northern portion of the property by dry-stacking 26 dump-truck loads of quarry-stone and then planting some 50 varieties of tropical fruit trees). All the masonry, patios, fine tropical hardwood doors and shutters, tables, cabinets, benches were hand-crafted with very basic tools by my son Pablo and his local co-worker colleagues. I have lived for extended periods in Casa Faro and in multiple years have used it as a base for flamenco performance tours throughout coastal Oaxaca, Oaxaca city and Mexico City. The house has both a serene meditative and celebratory quality that has been the residential inspiration for many poets, writers, painters, musicians, dancers, yoga practitioners, and healers. Because the architectural space is large and commodious, it is lends itself to diverse and simultaneous activities.
What makes this House unique
We built Casa Faro on its unique 1 1/2 acre because of its dramatic mix of land and sea, rock out-croppings and arroyos, Islands and coves, the sweeping horizon that embraces it, its proximity to close friends in the pueblo plus its other natural and cultural wonders.
