Phillips Hof

My wife Dana and I Oliver live with our 4 kids, Tara(20), Lea(11), Ronja(5) and Alva(3), on an old farm, that we have bought in 2020, in a small village at the edge of the wester forest 25km outside Bonn. When we bought the farm it was in a rather poor condition and it took us about 2 years to renovate the house using alternative building materials as wood wool or clay as much as possible. The house we have more or less finished but the rest of the farm still needs same attention.

When I was younger I travelled a lot. The biggest trip was a two years motorbike tour from Germany to New Zealand. But also spend some time in Africa as well as North- and South America. After I finished Uni my job as a project engineer for a foreign department involved a lot of traveling. And it is a totally different way of traveling as before. Nowadays I’m happy to spend my time off at home but I miss the contact to other travellers with new ideas and interesting discussions that helps you to see the world from a different angle. Therefore I would like to welcome you in our home and give back some of the hospitality I received all over the world.

What a great and enriching experience! Thank you so much to Dana and Oliver for sharing their home and being so kind and patient with us for the month we were there. As this was our first worldpackers experience we were not 100% sure what to expect, but we really felt comfortable with Oliver and his family. We had our own cozy room and shared bathroom along with access to clothes washer/dryer whenever we needed it (which was very often as we were regularly covered in animal poop hahah).

Oliver e Dana são incríveis. Um casal jovem e feliz! Levam uma vida simples junto com seus filhos. As crianças recebem uma educação que me chamou muito a atenção. Sem teve, sem celular, elas são livres, podem errar, podem brincar, tudo funciona com base no diálogo.
Na fazenda tem vários animais e muito trabalho.
O quarto é na parte externa da casa, em um trailer. Então é um quarto privado e muito confortável.
Obrigado pela paciência na comunicação. Obrigado por me ajudar quando eu solicitava. A ajuda de vocês realmente fez a diferença nessa fase!

This was the a great experience and well suited to Elizabeth and I. Oliver and Dana were very accommodating and appreciate hard work. The food is lovely and I would happily extend my stay or return someday. 10/10 do recommend.

I had an amazing time here and couldn’t recommend it more.
Oliver, Dana and their children are a lovely family and so welcoming.
They live in a lovely rural home with beautiful surroundings, so peaceful.
The work was enjoyable and they worked with our skills while also helping us to develope new ones.
I learnt many new things during our stay, both knowledge and how to physically do things around the farm.
I felt so welcome into their home and amongst their friends and family and I couldn’t appreciate that more.
They also have many animals including two cute cats and a lovely dog.

Oliver and Dana are great hosts and very welcoming. I was included in different little jobs on the farm and in the fields but there was also a lot of free time to do your own thing. Their animals are very gentle, so as someone who’s not used to being around animals this was a good place to start. Their kids are lovely and amazing at helping you with your German if you’re wanting to practise. A bit of a challenge if you’re not familiar with farming vocab in German. Always other people dropping by and helping out so there’s a strong feeling of community :)
