    Description

    Hello again dear Earth creatures and music lovers!

    Located on the edge of the universe (in the middle of the Netherlands, close to picturesque Utrecht, there is a little piece of land and water which takes you far away from the hustle and struggle of The (city)life...

    Who we are:

    Living this life, sharing love, creating energy, moving around, making art, always looking to get inspired. Being used to workaway ourselves in all kinds of places, it is exciting to now create something with the help of fellow workawayers… In the summer of 2016 we had an amazing workaway momentum, with the help of Harrison, Thomas, Lisa, Iain, Simon, Tristan, Aiste, Esmee, Max, Rachel, Stratos, Felicity and many other great adventurers we turned a little piece of land into a magic bubble.

    what we offer:
    -Area to meet new people from around the world
    -Teepees or bedroom to sleep in
    -Indoor shower and bathroom
    -Sauna
    -A river to jump into
    -An outdoor and indoor kitchen so you can cook yourself.
    -Good company
    -Magnificent Fireplace
    -A quiet beautiful space , 10 minutes from shops, 20 minutes from Utrecht and an hour from Amsterdam by public transport
    -New experiences with Enthusiasm, love and music.


    What we need:
    We are looking for people who can put some new love into our piece of land and turn it into a magic place again.

    The land is next to a houseboat on the river (to jump in and take a refreshing swim at any given time)

    The ideal location for people to get together from all places in the world, and create a small paradise together while meeting new friends.

    The main project we are looking help with is, preparing the land and accommodations for the guests who arrive.
    Think of painting, cleaning, cooking, hosting and gardening.



    We are music and art lovers, so all projects are preferably surrounded by art and music.


    There is place for 1 or 2 persons. You will sleep in a teepee outside. Everybody is welcome.

    In your free time you can enjoy to go anywhere, from the little pittoresk village center a 15 minute walk away, visit Utrecht, Amsterdam, take a jump in the river, a little tour with the motorboat along the canal, or just enjoy to be in a beautiful relaxing place. There is lots to do, we have been around this area, Utrecht and Amsterdam for many years, so whatever you like, we will be able to advice you where to go.
