  • Description


    We, Lenny and Anouk (29, Dutch) are setting up a restaurant/bar/sleeping huts in the jungle in Goa, India. The main focus is backpackers who love the jungle. The final goal of the place is to be as selfsustainable as possible.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Goa is an amazing place in India and ofcourse we can show you around. We know a lot of locals by now, so they can show you the cultural experience. Besides that we can teach you a lot about the jungle and all the animals and plants in it.

    We hope to share this experience and learn any new building skills from you!

  • Help


    We would like help with building the restaurant/bar.
    - at this moment the frame of our restaurant and most of our inside is done. But we still need to make tables and chairs and benches. So anyone who can build this is more than welcome.
    We try to use as much natural material as possible (Bamboo, wood, leaves)

    Farmers or people good with gardening are more than welcome, as we are starting to grow our own fruits and veggies.

    Painters, artwork ers also more than welcome as we need nice decorations.

    Graphic designers are also welcome: as we now want to start design our menu cards.

    people who like to spend 4 months (may/June till sept/okt) in India in a by us rented house in Goa. Only thing you have to do is look after our lovely dog. She is really shy but when she knows you she is the most awesome dog. Not a street dog, used to living in the house.

    Ofcourse there will be enough time to enjoy Goa. The nature is amazing(jungle, waterfalls, ocean, mountains). The side is 2km from a beautiful beach.

    Goa is also well known for its Yoga, so if you like that there are plenty of places to do this.

    The place is located +/- 90min by taxi from Goa Airport (20/30eu)
