    Description

    Hey everyone, we are Kim and Collin and we live in the beautiful Jungle Parish of Portland! We live off-grid in the Jungle next to a small river and close to 2 big Waterfalls and a Cave! We are currently building up our business through renting out 2 rooms in our house,which is almost finished. We are working on our living room and building a bigger kitchen. We are also setting up our garden to maintain self grown fruits and veggies. Arround us is pure nature with alot of fruit trees and a banana plantation. So there is also plenty of food arround us that just grows naturally. We often go out and pick fruits in the bush. Next to our house runs a beautiful little river to hang out and freshen up. Collin is jamaican and Kim is original from Germany and we are both 35 years old. We are planing to built up our home step by step and create a community for retreats, accommodation, tours, events and much more.
    Sometimes it can be alot to mantain the 2 hectar garden, guesthouse and marketing and thats why we are looking for you!
    We live with a german shepard named Rebel, which is nothing like a rebel, more sweet and loves the river and picking stones. Our other family member is Tom a little bush cat. Georgi is our duck that comes everyday to hang out and eat but prefers to live on the river infront of the house. All three animals get alone well and hang out together :) its like a little zoo ;)

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    You will learn about the life we living in a bush community with farmers, rastas and relaxed people. Our community is small but still we have bars and here and there you can get eggs, flour, essentialls, drinks and snacks. We live in the beautiful Jungle surrounded by the sound of nature, water and birds. It is a different and very peaceful living. You will get a glimps of what it means to wake up the the early sun and the sound of nature. The days start early and the sun goes down arround 6 and then you see a sky full of stars almost every night! Our house is across the Rio Grande river and about a 7 min walk through the bush. To get to each side we use our raft and one the other side a little wagon to pull our grocerys and other things. Also you can go to the beaches on the costline by car or taxi easily. There are some deep spots in the river you can jump in and enjoy. You will get a feeling of what it means to wake early mornings to the sun and the sound of pure nature. Living like this will give you the chance to disconnect from the outside for a little bit to reconnect within. It's an amazing way of enjoying and working with nature. You can wake up and take a dip in the water and have a cup of tea or coffee to start the day. Come and see what it does to you :)

    When you dont give us your helping hand and take some time to explore the surrounding, you can chillax at the Waterfalls, take a hike up in the mountains, chill on the small or big river, take a taxi into town and explore there, go to the beaches and explore the beautiful Portland. For us personally, its the most beautiful Parish in Jamaica. It has so much history like Nanny Town or the Maroon Settlement, hidden Waterfalls and also a town to explore and connect with locals. There is litterly everything you need. Grocery store, little shops, restaurants, taxi stand to go in all different directions, a city beach, markets, ice cream shop and a little mall. They also have a Knutsford Express Bus station in town.
    We live arround 20 min from Port Antonio which can be reached by taxi and car easily. Taxis run frequently. Puplic transportion is cheap in jamaica.
