  • Description


    We are a married couple who have been together for a long time. Linda is a psychotherapist by profession and Ken is CEO of a technology company. People tell us we are easy to get along with and we like to think we are interesting company. We are open minded, well travelled and have a reasonable sense of humour. We eat (relatively) healthy and enjoy sharing our meals.

    We have a bit of experience with “workawayers” and have enjoyed it a lot. Living in a small community-like households is fun and very rewarding for us and we have made some nice friends along the way.
    Our property includes separate accommodation for our guests with full autonomy (including washing mashing & tumble dryer) and 5 bedrooms. We love sharing what we consider “our paradise” with others and find it very enriching to get to know people from all walks of life.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We love and foster a lovely sense of community. Conversation is always lively and interesting and we usually spend hours talking, listening and learning.

    We are worldly people with much knowledge and experience and curiosity and the discussions around our kitchen table are always super interesting (so we are told).

    We have a deep knowledge of psychology, relationships and sexuality (the areas we practice in professionally) and we have a keen interest in well being, health and personal growth. But we are usually happy to talk about anything and welcome everyone's experience and stories.

    Cozy, interesting, community, connection would be the keywords here if they were asked for :)

  • Help


    We are looking for people who can help us with our garden, painting, some small carpentry projects, and cleaning. If you can cook, it would be great to try new dishes!
    It’s not heavy work, only smaller projects. In an old house there are always things to do. ;)

    Please contact us if you are interested and can stay with us. If you are interested, we will set up a Zoom/or similar video call so you can get to know us better and ask us any questions you like.

    Hope to hear from you
    Ken and Lin

  • Accommodation


    One of the buildings on the property has been converted to 2 separate accommodations. One is a small flatlet with a kitchenette and a bathroom and the other a full house with 4 bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom. We are very sociable people, so we would anticipate sharing meals as often as everyone wants to but will provide food always
