  • Description


    Hola Workawayers! :)

    So basically I am looking for like-minded people to come and stay in a beautiful finca, located half way up the volcano of Tenerife, to turn this in to an eco-friendly, welcoming, non-profit community space in the future!
    This house originally belongs to my family, but I have come back to live and work here, after many years of travelling, to create a little paradise in paradise. This is where I need your help!

    The finca has two floors, 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, an apartment and tooooo much outdoor space for us to maintain by ourselves! Over the years, many things have been damaged or need repairing. There are several projects, in the house and on the land (garden, vegetable patch, future yoga spaces, fruit trees, pond, playground, etc.), where your creativity has no limits.
    The house is far away from tourism and any hustle of the island, its completely relaxed, quiet and located with stunning views.

    About myself - I grew up here and have a deep love towards this island and this piece of land. My family is German, but I speak German, English and Spanish if you need a partner to practice! :) I have travelled to many places and therefore love meeting new people, getting to know new cultures and sharing my happiness. My hobbies are yoga (recently teaching myself! :), cooking and eating!, horse riding, languages and watersports. I'm also a very excited Mum of 2 dogs that I adopted 3 years ago (Chance, 8 years old & Panda, 3 years old). So it´s key that you love animals!

    We would like to create more of a community vibe in the Finca, co-living and co-working together as a family - where each person has their own responsibilities and works on these independently. If you are skilled in the following tasks and you want to join a project in the nature of Tenerife for longer - please let us know!

    Come and join us!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Tenerife is known for its mass tourism and beach life. If you would like to escape that though, and come to enjoy Europe's best climate in a very tranquil environment, then this is the right place. Its a good place to learn Spanish (we both also speak fluently), we have a good WiFi connection if you work remotely, and the house and garden are perfect spots for yoga practices.
    I give yoga lessons officially twice per week and am open to teaching you more if you like! :)

  • Accommodation


    You would stay in the top floor in one of the bedrooms. You share a bathroom with maximum one other person, and we all share the kitchen, living room and terrace together. Washing machine, fitness room and car park are also available.
    I keep a full fridge - so you can help yourself with what you can find from there. We will be cooking together and try to stick to a veggie, but preferably vegan diet. :)

    - We try our best to live healthy and consciously, so we would prefer to keep it to a non-smoking and non-meat household - :) Thanks!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is a lot to see and do here on the island in your time off - but it is recommendable to have a car (especially as it is almost impossible to get to the house without one). I drive down to the Los Cristianos area once a day approximately, and would be happy to take anyone, but you might be more flexible with a rented car, and they are not so expensive here.
