    renovating my cottage for accommodating all the musicians.
    woodwork, gardening, music playing.
    previous experience with potter´s wheel, babyswimming, various carework, building fishtanks, billiard table, toys, furniture, playing flute and trumpet.
    please: read the whole profile to get an overview before you possibly contact me.
    thanks for taking time to do so!

    dream for now:

    inviting musicians who enjoy playing, jamming and improvising. if you are a musician please tell me what style you play, what instrument and something about your background. mostly i desire pianoplayers, guitar, accordion and other "harmony instruments"! most welcome are musicians who can teach me music- theorie and trumpet playing technique.
    i have an electric piano with sensitive keys and pedal, also two guitars. experienced woodworkers and technicians are very welcome as well.

    some future dreams:

    teaching my grandson to swim, build a second billard table, growing snails, having a (jazz-) pianoplayer- friend (guitar, accordion, harp...are fine as well), having a bigband, making juice from "uva del mar" tree´s fruit, that i hope to harvest soon. the biggest tree is already 25cm.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    participating, teaching or learning:

    music playing. besides the wind- instruments i have a nice acustic guitar with nylon strings and electric piano- pitch range is not large, but it has a pedal and sensitive keys. it is mostly waiting to be used!

    gardening, kitchen, woodwork, creative interiour design, making jewelry from wood, languages.

    you may possibly benefit from accepting primitive conditions. most people have no problems with them, but one person came and left straight away. "this is no five star hotel" was the comment.


    if you want to have it clean and tidy also when travelling this is not the right place for you!
    if you have any doubt- PLEASE give me the chance to show you around when you meet me via skype! that will hopefully prevent further sudden departures.

  • Arbeit


    gardening, household, some assistance for wood- and construction work.

    best case scenario: if you are also a pianist, guitarist or accordeon player (jazz, oriental and latin style favoured)! i may offer a free stay for musicians who like to play just for fun some kind of style that fits for both- also without working.

    english, german (mothertongue) plus an exotic one

  • Unterkunft


    camper van as own individual bedroom, all other space common. this van is good for two plus child in case you bring your family. it has happened that more people want to come and i want to welcome them. in that case the cottage is avaiable like a hostel to accomodate several people if necessary. a tent will always fit.

    i have no business but only a small pension, so i may need to ask for help with food shopping when several people are visiting at the same time. in that case i suggest ten hours work per week.

    what is really important for me: let´s start in the morning, that is my best time and i must be with you. others than workdays we will hopefully all have the privilage not to use an alarmclock. please don´t mind anyway when i work while you sleep. it may cause some noise. your work does not generate financial profit for anybody but a nice atmosphere for everybody who comes here!

    i eat plenty of fresh vegetables, fruit and fish. the timetable is flexible so you can enjoy beeing out and about. location: countryside close to San Isidro in the south of Tenerife close to the sothern airport. the atmosphere here is peaceful, friendly and quiet (except my trumpet playing).

    so long!

    my place is in the sothern part of the island close to the sothern airport about 300m above sea level. EL MEDANO is a short busride away. that´s a cosy little beach- town which is not overloaded with tourists like many others. it is also a windsurfer´s paradise with ideal conditions. the next bus stop in upper San Isidro is 3km from here. bycicle available to go there. from lower part of San Isidro busses go to all directions (Santa Cruz, Los Christianos...) the trip down to El Medano- beach by bike and bus takes about three quaters. last bus back here leaves from Medano at a quater past midnight. nice places all around the island. and the very top is close to 4000m!

    this is a dusty area with much wind. the close surrounding is partly used as waste dump. but there is plenty of genuine desert and clean, fresh air around too! although the place is far from being finished all basic is ok: kitchen, outhouse, shower, grill, running water, electricity...

    i do not use whatsap. i do not like to write sms messages. but i am happy to speak and meet everybody who can bring in skills and has motivation to help making this place an oasis.

    ps. all fotos taken here on the island and in the garden. marvelous nature motives in barranco! and tons of cactusfruit.

sand structure at the beach created by the tide. very remarkable: besides the "normal" brown sand there is also black sand which seems to have a different specific weight. as a result the floating water leaves spectacular structures.
bug with fantastic eyes!
predator insect
only once per year i spot one of these rare preditors.
this bird comes to visit at times.
rare lizard pose
the local pine tree has the extraordinary characteristic of being able to survive forest fire. new branches grow from the black stump!
desert plants
the garden is blossoming. that attrackts the insects.
looking forward to see this kind of flowers in my garden.
sensation! after growing them from seeds one and a half year ago the maracuja plants start flowering. now i am waiting for fruit.
some progress with the snail experiment
with these i spend a lot of time. they are old and need a lot of attention, so they are very close to me. they have a great sound and are very fine craft work with lots of decorative details.
