  • Description


    Hello, I am Nicolette and I live and work here with my Workawayers people and we have many friends that come and visit us to enjoy the place . I am a successful social entrepreneur, that comes up with new inventions or businesses all the time !
    I live in the the smallest house that we have on the property together with Frommel, the Cuddling Killer Cat and Nada the Shy Shadow Cat .
    Furthermore there is Federico, our Italian manager, who manage the houses and property we rent out for holidays stays and business meetings, then there are also Sean, Eve and Axl from Ireland, all of them found me via this website in 2022 😁 and they never left . We also have a new entry Nicolas from Argentina that is staying with us 2/3 times per year for 1/2 months .
    Here , no day is the same, there is a relaxed vibe, we have fun and sometimes we organize nice parties and bbq !

    Sean, Eve and Axl should leave us around June 2024 and for this reason we are looking for new Workawayers ( better if you want to stay longer with us and if you have projects, ideas and if you have an entrepreneurial mind you will find many connections through our place ! )

    Come help us out with building, we are insulating the hay barn with raw sheep wool, there's a lot of work to be done . Next to that, there is plenty of other things that you could help us with, depending on your skills and your preferences such us cooking and taking care of the food avoiding waste, keeping all the time tidy and clean all the Workawayers living/working spaces, gardening, house keeping and maintenance and much more .

    More clear for the coming weeks : we need someone who is good in woodwork and someone who helps cleaning the houses ( You are not going to work by yourself, we do a team work here ! ) . We also have a large veggie garden who needs love and attention . From May we are receiving a Bee hive so we need help with that as well .

    So at this point you should have understood our place is full of activities and projects ! For any questions please write us and introduce yourself then Federico will be in touch with you .

    We'll be happy to welcome you in our place and introduce you our reality made of wonderful and interesting people that often stay with us like guests, friends and even animals .

    We are not far from Amsterdam and Utrecht ( you can easily reach many other cities and towns, in the Netherlands everything is close by ! Ahhhh ), Breukelen train station is 10 minutes by bike from our place .
    You will have plenty of time to visit everything you like around our beautiful area, we will be happy to give you recommendations and tips about the places we know from a Local Person and Workaweyers point of view !

    We have 2 caravans and 3 tents ( with good normal mattresses ) 😁.

    In the past Workaway emails ended up in my spam folder so that is why I have such a bad reply score !
    Please forgive me if I don't and I didn't react immediately .

    Be aware that we host people for a minimum of 14 days, we will give priority to the people that want to stay a longer period of time with us and if you have projects, ideas and if you have an entrepreneurial mind you will find many connections through our place ! We would like to have people that will leave a positive signs in our place and hearts, people that will be always more that welcome to back to stay with us 😊 .

    All the Best to all of you !
    Thanks !
    Nicolette and BoHo Experience Crew

    PS We are not looking for people that just think at the parties, smoking, drinking etc. ! Just in case it wasn't clear enough in our description ahhh ! Of course if you want we will have lot of fun, feel free to be our party, activities, bbq, bonfire nights and whatever you like to do organizer ! 😁
