We are Linda and Rainer, we live in a mostly finished house in Las Lajas, Guatemala with Frida our cat. Surrounded by luscious green hilltops and a refreshing river we like to think of our property space as peaceful and rewarding.
Our project is a project in the works that will provide individuals a space to learn and practice different art forms, gardening, and teaching language--among other things. Working to build self sufficiency, self sustainability and promote building relationships with everyone around you.

UN sustainablity goals this host is trying to achieve
Cultural exchange and learning opportunities
Travelers will have the ability to learn ways to adapt and live off the land, learn ways to be self sufficient and learn about building and art. Travelers will have the opportunity to learn new culture, try new fruits and vegetables and have the opportunity to teach language or art forms to children in the area.
We are looking for help finishing up our art house which can include building projects and adding decorative finishing touches to the various rooms throughout the house. We are looking for creative individuals willing to learn to decorate and create with clay, paint, and other natural things. Gardening may also be a task that is asked of you as well as teaching music or language.
Linda will be the point of contact and Rainer will be the host at the property majority of the time. It is best if travelers know a little Spanish or German.
