    Hola todos!

    NEW! People with marketing, social media and photographer skills are welcome to contact us!

    We are located in the old town of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, close to the main bus station. We need help at the reception, keeping our house clean and improving it in a creative way.

    The main goals of our Association are international and local exchanges, sustainability, creativity, and community vibes.

    Our place is a meeting point for international travelers and locals. We are giving information about all kinds of outdoor activities that can be practiced in Gran Canaria. Also, we organize yoga classes, live concerts, cooking lessons and family dinners, jam sessions, movie nights and talks with locals and travelers.

    Sustainability and the protection of our nature are very important for us. That's why we are trying to use a lot of natural elements to build up the place (check out our pics) and to reduce our impact on the planet, reusing and recycling everything we can :)

    We want to try to buy a few "new things" as possible and work with things other people throw carelessly into nature. We want to give the "garbage" we find a second life and new meaning.

    One of our most important goals is to create a fruitful connection between arts and sustainability. That's why the house itself is becoming a special kind of art exposition which should make people think about society's "Garbage" and plastic and build the consciousness that we should only buy what we really need.

    Everything we throw away does not just disappear. The floating plastic and wood in the ocean that ends up also on the beaches of Gran Canaria is the best example of this.

    We are looking for people who share the same ideas as us. Who wants to join our family in our close to 100 years old house to grow our own, healthy food in our garden that we share between us and our guests.

    On the "Island of Everlasting Spring" where perfect climate its all-year with 20-28 degrees.

    With the incomes we earn from our guests we finance the project (rent, water, electricity, internet, insurance, renovation and developing the place, etc), but the project itself is non-provisional.

    We are also looking for any other kind of help like building, gardening, marketing, painting, holding yoga classes, organizing activities, etc. If you have experience in these areas, please contact us! :)

    We wish you a lovely day!

    We need happy, passionate and motivated people who would like to enjoy the beauty of this island but that are also committed to work, feel part of the project and contribute toward its improvement. The tasks to carry on regards mostly cleaning, reception's work, social interactions with travelers and creative projects. In fact, as the house is a never-ending "work in progress", some works like painting, plastering, working with wood, moving materials, gardening, and crafting are required. We ask for a minimum of 6 weeks of staying, but we give priority to who stays two months.
