This side of the island has a wide variety of landscapes and natural reserve parks of amazing beauty.

About miki

this house and garden are right now the focus of my life, since 2012 we (me and other people) have been working on the place to bring it to a state of purity and susteinability

living in an eco friendly way, practicing permaculture and creating minimum impact is the goal. this gives this place a very special feeling, and is its highest value.

my wish is to share this space temporarily with people who appreciate this qualityes and thus obtain resources to carry on with the project.

i made the prices as affordable as i could, and i try to give the best personal attention and assistance

i have been living in the island for 13 years or more and this place is my absolute best choice, is my dream come true, for me is one of the most special places on this island full of special places

Why miki chose Tijarafe

this is a place for healing holidays, you can have the best biological vegan food cooked with love, or have a good session of yoga and massage, or guided meditation

we are a small family of friends united by this common purpose of sustainable life and healing practices, each one specialist in one area of development. we maintain an atmosphere of meditation and harmony (name of the place)

children are welcome, we have a tree house and play room, and a save environment to discover nature

there is a small forest just round the corner, literally, which is one of the most quiet undisturbed places i have ever seen

this is an ideal place to disconnect from all, and just breathe and sit in silence to contemplate the sunset, to listen to the sound of birds or count the million stars at night

it has a dreamy atmosphere, specially at twilights and full moon days

the water is pure, flows constantly and direct from an underground natural deposit

the house is off the beaten path, where you would not imagine there can exist such a place, everything is very simple and the rooms very basic yet the whole house is very cozy

theres lots of cushions, blankets, rugs, a fireplace and a stove

there is also a fire place out in the garden (only for the rainy season)

What makes this bed and breakfast unique

feng shui orientation east west

zen garden

fresh farm local products at hand

mild weather

lots of trekking to go in and out (because of the 400 meter path from house to parking).

Hiking paths to and from the house

Good access to west coast many treasures, good restaurants, facilities and amenities just a little drive (and hike!) away

additional services including massage, acupuncture, yoga, dance expression, art k, vegan menu (amazing tasty!), children caretaker, etc..

What a nice place!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Finca Harmonia. The view from up there is fantastic, our room was clean and cozy. After some time there you become a part of the community, so this is no place for hermits. You have to get used to a rustic environment, but you live really close to nature up there and will meet very nice people - including the host! Thanks to you all, see you next time!

Kleines stilles Idyll im Bergland oberhalb von Tijarafe

  • 5 of 5

Naturnahes individuell liebevoll gestaltetes Refugium fernab allen Stress'. Wir haben eine Woche mit Kleinkind hier verbracht. Paradiesischer Garten mit heimischer Botanik, Katzen und Hunden. Man teilt die vegetarisch/vegane Küche und den gemütlichen großen Wohnbereich mit Holzofen mit einigen der Bewohner, die verteilt auf dem großen Grundstück wohnen und wir alle als hilfsbereit und zurückhaltend kennen gelernt haben. Abends ist es sehr ruhig, wir hatten dann den Wohnbereich und die Terasse meist für uns. Parken in einer Kehre der wenig befahrenen Straße auf dem Kiesstreifen. Grandioser Weg zum Haus hinab durch Terrassenfelder, entlang eines kleinen Barrancos mit Mandelbäumen. Geländegängiges Schuhwerk für den Weg und evtl. in den Wintermonaten Hausschuhe für drinnen mitbringen, da teilweise Natursteinböden im Haus. Das helle Zimmer mit Meerblick hat einen Holzdielenboden und ein ausgezeichnetes französisches Bett, wir haben phantastisch hier geschlafen. Versorgung mit Quellwasser vom Berg. Das bequeme Kompostklo auch mit Meerblick. Gesund und erholt fällt es uns schwer, uns wieder an den Alltag in der Großstadt zu gewöhnen. Vielen Dank für alles!

een verrijking en herijking op een bijzondere plek

  • 4 of 5

Dit was voor mij de eerste maal dat ik in een ecolodge verbleef. Ik wilde ervaren en voelen hoe het is om op deze manier in het leven te staan. Het werd een bijzondere en prettige ervaring. Een verrijking en herijking tegelijkertijd.

In deze ecolodge werd ik mij bewust met welke vanzelfsprekendheid ik in mijn ‘normele’ huis de beschikking heb over onbeperkte voorzieningen als elektra , warmte en water. Een toilet in huis en een auto naast de deur. Het maakte mij bewuster op welke wijze ik met deze vanzelfsprekende voorzieningen thuis omga en hoe dat, met respect voor de aarde waarop we leven, ook anders kan.

Tentijde dat ik hier arriveerde was, was mijn gastheer niet aanwezig. Er wachte mij een oprecht warm welkom door de vrouwen en kinderen die rondom deze lodge hun verblijf hebben. Zij zorgen met elkaar, voor deze lodge en ondersteunen elkaar waar nodig. Als alleenreizende, heb ik mij meer dan welkom gevoeld en het, als het zo uitkwam, met elkaar delen als een zeer warm bad ervaren.

Overweeg je deze lodge te boeken? Dan is het volgende goed om te weten.

De lodge ligt 400m lager van de plek waar een auto geparkeerd kan worden. Arriveer zolang het nog licht is. Het pad naar de lodge is onverhard en bestaat voor een deel uit keien. Niet geschikt als je slecht ter been bent. Een rugzak (geen koffer), een zaklantaarn, warme nachtkleding (ik was hier in januari) en wandelstokken behoren tot de basis reisuitrusting als je boekt voor deze unieke plek met uitzicht op zee.
