  • Description


    We are a couple Caroline and Rich who love travel and have lived in many corners of the world and love discovering new places and experiences. We arrived in Lanzarote about 15 years ago and after feeling that we would never find a place we would call home, got completely drawn in by the energy and unique beauty of Lanzarote and its friendly locals.

    Think stunning sunsets against a surreal backdrop of dramatic volcanoes, starfilled skies, lush vine yards in contrast with turquoise waters and white sandy beaches.

    I guess you can tell why we love Lanzarote and want to share its secrets with you!

    We were lucky enough to be able to buy and renovate a traditional Canarian house in 2008 and restore it into a colourful and friendly Guest House which attracts guests and fellow travellers from all over the world.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a creative couple who love travel, art, photography, music, surfing, hiking, caving, rock climbing, yoga, sailing.. etc.etc.....

    I think travellers can benefit from living in a shared Guest house with other international guests and and sharing their stories, experiences, and also practising and learning new languages and about working in Tourism.

    Also to enjoy the many amazing cultural experiences of our local artist Ceasar Manrique and his philosopies on sustainable tourism.

    Exploring and learning about our fascinating Island which is classed as a Biosphere and Timafaya National Park which is world famous for its preserved volcanic landscapes..
