    Description

    I would like to welcome people from all over the world to my home. I’ve been a Airb&b host for many years and it’s been a great experience.
    I grow my own vegetables, there is a meadow orchard with cherries, apples, pears, plums and more, I make my own fire wood, there is a small forest and a big landscape park – it’s very rewarding but I need help!
    The property is very idyllic, the perfect place to read and relax, do yoga or meditation, or just watch the wildlife. You will have your own room and bathroom and I will cook your favorite meals!

    I’m looking for strong people to help me take care of the 5 ha landscape park, you need to be experienced with a chainsaw and be able to take down small trees. You should also be able to handle a heavy duty weed wacker. The park with it’s 5 ponds have been neglected for many years and needs serious clean up…
    I also need help building a small wooden deck at the pond and with basic renovation tasks like painting and restoring the original steel windows of the charming art nouveau villa.

    The area is very popular for cycling, you can also take nice walks in the surrounding nature, for example in the nearby heath or marsh. The North Sea is about 45 minutes drive away so is the famous beach of St. Peter Ording, great place for kite surfing. The beautiful city of Hamburg is also 45 minute drive away. There are also opportunities for canoeing around here, there is a rental place 2 km away, they also offer tours.
