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.
Seven years ago I started building my house.
We have been running the place as guesthouse renting rooms and beds to travellers but are slowly transforming into 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!
