Hi there! We the are the Brouwer family. Our family members are Fiona, Rik and Loek. Fiona is working as a business coach, Rik is a engineer and works as a construction coordinator and Loek, well Loek is just a little boy of 5 years old :)
In the summer of 2022 we bought our dream property in Altea, Spain. It is already an amazing place... but a lot of things need to be done. The garden (5.000m2) needs lots of love; together we're gonna make water-systems, plant more fruit trees and make a veggie garden. Another project is a building project; there is an old mobile home that we would love to transform to a beautiful tiny house.
What we love:
- cook home made meals (vegan most of the time) but our favorite food is..... sushi!
- walking in the 'our' forest or hiking the mountains in our backyard
- go on holidays and explore the world
- playing with Loek
- reading (Rik likes to read about investing and getting FIRE)
We don't like:
- traffic jams and queues at the checkout supermarket
- expensive insurances
- mosquitoes (what is the use of them!?)

Experience what life is like on a Spanish finca. Our ultimate goal is to live as self-sufficiently as possible. We also have enough space on our land to experiment with growing fruit and vegetables.
Do you want to come and help us?
You're going to learn:
- how to build a tiny house;
- how to grow food on a plot of Spanish soil;
- we can teach you English and Dutch. Fiona is born in The United States of America and Rik in the Netherlands.
Este projeto pode envolver crianças. Para mais informações, veja aqui nossas diretrizes e dicas.
We would love to host a couple or two friends who are traveling together. One of you will help Rik with building the Tiny House and one of you will be the helping hand in our household.
BUILDING - Do you want to learn how to build a Tiny House?
You don't need to have any building experience, but it's helpful if you know how to work with (power)tools. Rik is a builder and knows how things need to be done. For example, together we're gonna:
- insulate the walls,
- do all the electrical installation,
- roofing of the tiny house (green roof with sedum plants),
- installing the bathroom & kitchen,
- make our own furniture,
- the whole 'package' :)
HOUSEHOLD WORK - Do you love to cook?
For the help in our household we're looking for someone who loves to cook :) We would like you to do the groceries and make us lunch & dinner. We eat almost anything and love the health stuff. Another chore will be cleaning the house twice a week.

Since we have just emigrated to Spain, we would love to learn Spanish asap :) Can you help us with this?
You'll have your own studio (45m2) incl. kitchen and shower. It has its own entrance and is separated from our house. If you take a look at the pictures you can see that the studio is on the same level as the swimming pool, underneath our house.
When staying with us we'll provide you with all the food you love. There is a kitchen with everything you'll need. And feel free to ask us anything you like.
In the mornings you can have your own breakfast in the studio and lunch & dinner we will have together.
When you have some time off you can go the beach, go hiking in the mountains in our back yard, take our bike for a spin or just chill at our swimming pool.
If you want, you can use our car (Seat Ibiza) or grab our motorbike (when you have your licence A1/A2) to go to the beaches or explore the surrounding towns. Towns like Moraira, Benissa, Calpe or Benidorm are just 30 minutes form the finca.

Fiona works as a business coach and needs fast internet for her work. If you want, and there is some time for it, Fiona can help you grow with your (online) business. There are several places on our property with a fast internet connection. Just pick a nice spot, open your laptop and start working.
There is enough space for an (camper) van.
