  • Description


    We are a family of 4 members. We own a camel farm and rent out rooms at a typical canarian house on our premises.
    With the covid entering in our lives we have to change our way of focusing our offer. You would be able to stay at our guesthouse in exchange of 25 hours/week of your help. The rest of the time you can accomodate to your needs. We are sorry to say that we cannot retribute economically, as in the past.
    We have alot of demands for improving such a nice place (said by guests), and would like to fulfill the guests and our wishes. Bonfire area, barbeque and swimmingpool area is what we are starting now, but alot more can be done, and ideas are welcome.

    We are also looking into to permaculture and wouldneed somebody who knows about this aspect.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have a farm just 5 km from the coast. Alot of guests come and stay with us because we are near to alot of the island activities, like trekking, cycling and all sea sports and leisure. Our area is quiet, we are a team of 8 family and friends and the days spent working are very entertaining with chillout evenings.

  • Help


    We have a family business and, during summer period and up to 6 months, we need help with maintanence, and building. Therefore, we offer accomodation, and need up to 2 to 3 persons. We have in mind doing house reforms focused on the guesthouse to change from shared bathrooms to private ones.
    We need doors varnished, walls painted and we are starting a swimmingpool area, so the workaways can enjoy it also. Apart from that, there is a job with the camels, for somebody interested in learning about them, along with other farm animals and a p.r. and fotography helper needed.
    Somebody who works well wood, and enjoys finishing building proyects is welcome!!
    Feel free to contact us with your questions, and maybe you would like to spend some time with us, and also visit the Canary Islands, which are so special.

  • Accommodation


    The workaways will be staying at a typical canarian style house, sharing kitchen, bathrooms and patio areas. The rooms are independant and can be shared if two friends come. If not, it is a double bedroom per person unless rooms are needed, then you would have to share.
    You have wifi in common areas and a bus stop 300 metres down the road, villages at walking distance and beaches 5 km away.
    We have more possibilities of accepting friends or couples that dont mind sharing a room with two single beds or doublebed.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The Canary Islands are full of precious corners, the islands are near enough for you to visit on your days off, and if not, Tenerife itself is well communicated and lots a leisure and sightseeing involved.
    We are a small family that work together during the day, but respect each others evenings to spend in family or with friends. You are welcome to join in, or just relax at the guesthouse and meet people from all over the world that come to stay a few days with us.
    We decided in 1988 to leave our bank and engineering positions to raise our daughters on a farm. We have been rewarded with a great life, but are a bit overwhelmed with all that is needed to be done on a farm, and therefore need help.
