  • Description


    We‘re looking for someone to help out all around the house, its a big house build over the last 10 years by me and many helpers, allmost everything is handmade and recycled, natural materials. Its a place closeby but far enough to relax and come to yourself. With the best vieuw of Montanita the Pacific Oceantajes you on your own, private, endless journies.
    We rent out two spaces long and shortterm. There is a space for yoga, meditacion and therapies free to be enjoyed and worked with if you want.
    We enjoy the beach and the great locas comunity, we work with the local culture centers and can send you out for other fun volunteering and getting to know some more ;)...
    I like for the people that come here to help, to want to stay home for a bit. So together we keep the house and its inhabitabts safe and happy..

    Now a little bit about the work...

    General upkeep, cats and garden is allwas and opportunity to help with.

    Appart from that there are many skills we can use;
    There is allways work to be done in image builing and promotion work for our places for rent.
    Also there is lots of gardening , agroforresrtry and growing things in general te be taken care for,planted and learnd about.

    For the builders among you... projects are allways going on, I have the tools and knowledge of a bit of anything and can serve as your helper or guide as fitted.

    If you are a teacher for yoga, meditacion, breathing or anything else in this direction of selfdevelopment and raising consiousness, our house might be a good place to organize your events... Please for the last only professionals and or natural tellents ;)...

    Escaping commercial Europe again around eight years ago,... I exchanged my little houseboat in Amsterdam, the Netherlands for a small terrain with cabin on a hilltop in Montanita, Ecuador. Ten years ago I started building my house.

    We have been running the place as a guesthouse renting rooms mostly longterm to tavellers and locals. We are verry quiet and have cats, lots of (5). We also serve as kind of a healing house and retreat center where we study plants, good diet, meditation, yoga, permaculture, respiration etc....

    People needed who like working! We have a very tranquil atmosphere but lots to do.... From bricking to carpentry, gardening, painting and all general maintenance of the house

    We cook vegetarian, sleep early and enjoy the nature.

    We are also involved in social work, everything around cleaning the beaches, recycle, culture, education and helping to rise conciousness.

    Montañita is a famous party town but our house is on a top of a hill perfect distance from the town, far away enough from the party music but close enough to walk there in 10minutes if needed. The beach with its best surf point is just few minutes down the hill. Volunteers can of course in their freetime enjoy Montañita but please dont bring the party up to the house, respect the peace of the house :)

    Fell free to write for any questions and hope to see you soon!
