What is included?
Our number one priority is that you can focus on your projects and the exchange of ideas with the other entrepreneurs during you time at Sunny Office. Therefore you just need to book a flight, pack your suitcase and relax. We organize the rest.
What is included?
Participate in the Gran Canaria Half Marathon on 22nd January if you want!
* We take care of all grocery shopping. The Sunny Office team prepares a delicious breakfast every morning. During the day everyone takes care of him/herself (there will always be snacks) and in the evenings we will cook together. On two evenings we will have dinner out that is not included. If you decide to have lunch at a restaurant, you will cover the expenses yourself. Please inform us of dietary restrictions upon booking so that we can arrange the grocery shopping.
** Drinks include water, juices, coffee, tea, beer and wine. All further alcohol is not included.
We look forward to talking to you!
Just fill in the application form. We will set up a short phone or skype call as the next step to answer your questions and to get to know each other. After our confirmation, you get the booking link to confirm your participation.
How does a day at Sunny Office look like?
At a Sunny Office you are free to have your own schedule – as a morning or as an evening person. There are some joint appointments, like dinner and the evening meetings which everyone attends. The evening meeting is facilitated by us, the Sunny Office team, and each evening one or two participants present their project or current challenges to get feedback and help from the group. On the weekends we organize a free time program and you will be free to take part or do whatever you like. This is how a day usually looks like during the week:
- Mornings: Go for a run by the beach, have breakfast together, time to work on your project
- Afternoon: lunch (self-organized), time to work on your project
- Evening: dinner with the group – every night another team of two people cooks for the whole group, evening meeting where one person presents and gets detailed feedback, enjoying a glass of Spanish wine and good discussions
Are the costs tax-deductible?
Usually you are able to deduct the costs from your taxes. The regulation might be different in each country, but in general a Sunny Office is about networking, project work and exchange.
Are the arrival and departure dates flexible?
We recommend that everyone stays for the whole time to get most out of it and have a common start with everyone on the first night. However, if you find really good flights with slightly different dates, just tell us and we’ll find a solution! We can either help you find accommodation if you want to stay longer after the Sunny Office or it’s also ok if you arrive one or two days late.
Who else will participate in the retreat?
The event will be hosted by Tim and Ricarda from the Sunny Office team. You will get to know the other participants upfront via a Facebook group we will set up. People joining Sunny Office are always from diverse backgrounds: men and women from different countries (Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Norway, Hungary, Denmark, US joined Sunny Office events so far), most of them in their twenties and thirties, some in their forties. Among them everything from internet marketers, online shop owners, e-book publishers, academics, programmers, designers, coaches, …
How much free-time and work will there be?
Everyone participating should bring their project(s) and usually we will work during the week and organize free-time activities at the weekend. If you want to simply go on holidays, this is not for you. If instead you want to get work done, find time for a break from day-to-day life to gain new inspiration and ideas and relax at the same time, then this is the right thing for you.
How is grocery shopping and cooking organized?
We will organize the shopping and make regular shopping lists so you don’t have to worry about going shopping yourself and at the same time everything you need will be available in the fridge. Breakfast is prepared by the Sunny Office team. For lunch everyone usually takes care themselves and in the evenings someone in the group cooks for everyone. Some evenings we also go out for dinner – this is always unique depending on the preferences of the group.
