Julie made Gili Air her home over 13 years ago, and her brother Niels followed 6 years later. Their parents gave them the land as a place to create their own kind of Magic.

Julie, serial entrepreneur and reformed speedoholic, Niels permaculture enthusiast, and recovered addict, created a home for people to slow down and find their flow. From the moment they moved to the island, they always have had an open door policy. Though isolated on a tiny remote tropical island in Indonesia, their home consistently remained full of life, with a garden full of conversations, sparking inspiration. Whoever came to visit, stayed as long as they wished, to let themselves be enveloped with the surreal truth that comes with a deeper understanding of nature.

It is precisely what happened to Julie and Niels while living on the island.

Gathering around the bonfires of Gili, after watching the most mesmerizing sunsets of their lives, or floating around in the ocean watching the clouds pass by, the permaculture garden with its overflowing leaves and flowers, as the bees cross-pollinate. Gili Air island seemed to draw visitors back, always inspiring them to contribute to the magic of the island with their own hands.
