  • Description


    We are located at Taveuni the famous Garden Island of Fiji. Please keep in mind: Taveuni is a somewhat remote Island without much entertainment from outside however with the most friendly local people you can imagine.

    Since leaving the hussle and bussle everyday life in Germany, about four years ago, we have set up and nearly realized our dream, a life close to the ocean, all year round pleasant temperatures, with off grid PV electricity and independent water supply. For our guests and friends we proudly can offer now our self contained guesthouse located on the same property.

    We are using our 1 acre of land sensitively to produce and grow all organic fruit and vegies and love to eat wholsome healthy mostly vegetarian food from the own garden in which we grow meanwhile more than 200 useful plants.

    Our interests are alternative medicine, art, spiritual growth, Yoga, Qigong, of course gardening and creating an environmental friendly place for a harmonic existence with nature and mother earth.

    To relax, regenerate and enjoying Taveuni Island there will always be enough time free for a Yoga practice session, talks to share and exchange ideas and knowhow as well as taking a cool down swim or even snorkeling excursion in the south pacific ocean on our volcanic black sand/gravel beach.

    Our workaway friends will experience what it means to live off grid, mainly self-sufficient on a remote Island. We share our experience in respect of organic gardening, holistic medicine and natural healing, living in the tropics, life sustaining healthy vegetarian and local cooking, snorkeling and sealife excursions, discovering Yoga and the interesting Fijian culture.

In general we have a decent breakfast, during the day snacks or fruits from the garden and a cooked dinner around sunset.
