About this listing
Only 50 m from our main guesthouse, one of a dozen different spaces we rent out at Los Baños de la Luz, near Facinas in Tarifa.
Hidden behind trees and bushes lies the secluded GEODESIC DOME with lots of space around it for lazing in the sun.
#6 GEODESIC DOME AND SPACE COSY
The igloo is set on a wooden platform with an adjacent deck with a dinner table. Next to the risqué outside shower, huge mirror and Moroccan style toilet. An experience in itself!
Hidden behind trees and bushes lies the secluded space #6 our "COSY" GEODESIC DOME with lots of space around it for lazing in the sun. The "igloo" is set on a wooden platform with an adjacent deck and dinner table. Next to the risqué outside shower a huge mirror and a Moroccan style toilet. Squatting like in the old days.
Unless our guesthouse is booked by a "Closed Party" you have full access to the community kitchen with inside and outside stoves in the main house, cook your favorite meals and devour them at the oval wooden table in the middle of the shaded patio. On the grill you can try out the arts of barbequing shrimps and eggplants. Gazpacho the famous, delicious mixture of cucumbers, tomatos, pepperoni, olive oil and dried bred is being prepared in the blender and kept in the fridge to refresh you in the heartwarming heat of the long summer days. Fresh fruit juices are centrifuged in the practical kitchen appliance and will guarantee a stay in Paradise, gastronomical bliss. (In case that the guesthouse kitchen is not available we have installed an additional kitchen in the office area of the estate). The hammock awaits you for your after lunch siesta. La dolce far niente par excellence. The climate is incomparable to anything in the northern hemisphere. Cool sea-breezes, coming wavelike across 6000 km of pure, cool waters of the gigantic Atlantic ocean, often bring fresh relief from the dry, hot desert wind risen over the Sahara sand which is so loved by the many windsurfers only 6 kilometres to the southwest.

Other Things to Note
The main migrations flight paths of all migrating birds to Africa and back are straight above our land. The swallows nest here in spring and early summer. Storks breed their young here before they fly on to the North. Various colonies of vultures permanently live here and feast on dead animals. The artists of gliding are so apt to use the slightest breeze to lift them into the heights. Thousands of birdwatchers come here every year to indulge to their beloved hobby.
You have not seen a sunset if you have not seen a sunset at the Costa de la Luz, the coast of light. A natural phenomena extends the twilight of dusk during almost 2 hours. The sunlight is being relayed through the water of the Atlantic ocean and reflected back to the sky in our area. This is what gave the name to our region.
We assume that our guests know the basics.
The use of the kitchen is communal, that means, all our gursts can use it and store food and provisions in the fridge, cabinets and the freezers.
The left behind provisions of previous guests can be consumed free of charge. Please eat first of all the perishable foods. Please separate the different trash, (metal cans and bricks, glass, compost) from the general garbage.
We can supply a certain stock of basic, mainly healthy, organic foods in our MINISHOP in the house or also in the warehouse at the main entrance and it can be purchased there during normal business hours. If you want something in particular, may be our staff can procure it for you the next day.
Our staff takes care of the basic cleaning and washing. If you use the kitchen and cutlery, dishes and glasses etc., please clean and wash up afterwards. If you want to use the washing machine, please coordinate with our staff. We only use biodegradable detergents, please do not use anything else.
If you rather wish, that our staff does the cleaning for you during your stay, they will gladly do so at a cost of € 12.- per hour.
If you are planning a loud party, please coordinate with us and the other guests on the property (you may have to invite them too). If you watch movies or are listening to music, please coordinate with the other guests or use headphones. Please use your mobile telephones and computers only in the Wi-Fi Zone near the office at the main entrance.
During the dry season, especially during windy periods, there is a very high risk of fire. Please only smoke or use open fires (grill) in the patio of the house and extinguish cigarette butts with water or spit on them. Do not smoke in non-safe places or while walking around on the property. In case of fire, call the emergency number: 112 and alert our staff and the other guests and also help extinguish it. There are various water hoses in different strategic locations.
If you are bringing your pet, please make sure they do not molest other human or animal inhabitants. Extremely loud dogs may have to spend the nights in our kennel. Dog and cat hairs are extremely difficult to clean. The extra cleaning fee per pet visit is € 15 per stay. If your dog shits in public areas or on the paths, please remove it.
Please make sure that the gates to the property are closed again behind you because otherwise cows, horses and donkeys will enter the property, eat our flowers and the planted vegetables, damage our trees and shrubs and leave their droppings. It is hard work to herd them and send them out again. They like it very much on our land too. Please advise our staff, if you see intruder animals on the property or arm yourself with a stick and take care of it yourself.
Thank you for your cooperation
Ha sido una experiencia muy recomendable. Antonia y su marido están por allí dispuestos a ayudarte que que pases una estancia, la más agradable. El sitio, la gente que vive allí, el entorno,... Estoy seguro de que repetiremos!
Los Banos è un luogo ideale per chi necessità di staccare la spina per qualche tempo. Spazi in condivisione e la natura la rendono un luogo di relax, riflessione e confronto.
A fantastic experience in a wild location, everything was good starting from the dome to the host: a very good and nice person!
This was a uniquely perfect place to spend a few days in the countryside! Sleeping in the geosidic dome was picturesque, comfortable and romantic! Showering outdoors with views of the wonderful tarifa countryside is a very very special experience! Buzzel and Antonia were very walm and welcoming. Thank you for a lovely stay! Xxx
The igloo was a magical place. Colorful, welcoming and special. Waking up in the morning with a beautiful view was unbelievable. The hosts were accommodating and absolutely lovely. I would return any day and highly recommend the igloo for a weekend getaway. Beach and good food are nearby too! Thank you.
Bellissimo! Un posto da visitare ma soprattutto da godere a pieno! Sicuramente un esperienza unica..natura pace e tante belle persone !
Great location, great view, and most importantly great fellow guests. Will definitely recommend.

About the Host, Buzzel
The Airbnb profile page does not give him a choice. There is only one possibility:
(“Hi, I° am Buzzel”) (°=whoever that is)
Let's try it a little differently:
"Hello", "I° am known as BUZZEL"
Buzzel is beyond description...
After 70 years, Buzzel still does not know, who he° is.
¡To be, or not to be?!
¿Who am I?
¿What exactly is he referring to, when he says “I”?
¿Is there a real “I”?
¿Is God now here? . . . or … ¡God is nowhere!
¿God, Allah, Jehovah, Manitou, Space, Emptyness or Consciousness?
Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha and Moses and all the noses have brought some anwers and a lot of new questions.
¿ What if THAT has been here all along?
¿The divine comedy¡…. ¡The dance of existence?
Questions, questions, few clear answers. ¡Better stop asking!
Buzzel° knows that he° does not know much.
He° knows, that moral and beliefs brings no solution to the enigma.
Certainty, that even all these insights have grown in his° own garden and that there is nothing out there, out there.
He° returned the God they had sold to him. The old clunker is finally gone.
Noone to blame anymore but myself°.
Divinity yes, in every being and thing, yes, the in love, in god feeling remains…
Flowering in it without limits.
There is no Buzzel, there is nothing, to what he° could hold onto.
Living the ecstasy in peaceful bliss.
¡Yes, or maybe not!
Hi, they call me Buzzel, but I° don’t have a clue who this is.
Born: Yes, along time ago.
Died: Not yet.
Avoiding the herd, the norms and the “normals”.
Buzzel has journeyed and stayed in many places and spaces throughout time.
Come and stay with him for a while, where horses and cows, donkeys, foxes and rabbits roam around freely in the meadows and hills and where you don’t have to lock the doors of your car, the doors of the house or your heart. Shed your burden, your clothes and your sorrows.
Enjoy living in our space and share the radically open ways and views of life. Leave your mind, come and share the peace or find it here with us and likewise other travellers, for a brief moment.
¡Be my guest!
Buzzel° is not just trying to sell you the use of a bed for a night or two for a certain number of €uros, £ounds or $ollars. He is offering you an experience:
The space of the place, something you can take with you and where you can return to anytime.
Come here and feel for yourself.
Die Airbnb Profil Seite gibt ihm keine Wahl. Nur eine einzige Möglichkeit:
(“Hallo, Ich° bin Buzzel”) (°=wer auch immer das ist)
Lass es mich ein wenig anders versuchen:
"Salü", "Ich° bin als BUZZEL bekannt"
Buzzel kann nicht beschrieben werden.
Selbst nach 70 Jahren weiss Buzzel immer noch nicht, wer er ist.
Er lebt in der Gewissheit, dass das Gewissen nicht der Weisheit letzter Schluss sein kann.
¡Sein oder nicht sein?!
¿Wer bin ich?
¿Auf was genau bezieht er sich, wenn er sagt “Ich”?
¿Gibt es ein wirkliches “Ich”?
¿God is now here? . . . or … ¡God is nowhere!
¿God, Allah, Jehovah, Manitou, Raum, Leerheit oder Bewusstsein?
Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha and Moses and all the new noses haben einige Antworten gebracht und noch mehr neue Fragen.
¿ Was wenn ES schon immer hier ist?
¿Die göttliche Komödie¡…. ¡Der Tanz der Existenz?
Fragen, Fragen, Fragen und nur wenig klare Antworten.
Buzzel° weiss, dass er° nichts weiss.
Er° kann das“Ich” nirgends finden und trotzdem erscheint Buzzel in seinem Geist.
Leben in der Ungewissheit. Lieben in der Leere. Alle Wesen nur flüchtige Erscheinungen. Keine Materie, kein Bestand.
“Ja, oder vielleicht auch nicht.”
Mit dieser Ungewissheit leben, darin aufzublühen mit aller Kraft. Mit der Kraft der bewussten Unsterblichkeit.
Da ist kein Buzzel, da ist nichts, woran er sich festhalten könnte.
Er° hat den Gott zurückgegeben, den man ihm angedreht (website hidden) ist niemand mehr da, dem er die Schuld zuschieben kann.
Göttlichkeit, ja, in jedem Wesen, jedem Ding. Verliebt sein mit Allem.
Es ist ihm bewusst, dass all die Einsichten auf seinem eigenen Mist gewachsen sind.
Hervorquellend, ungläubig, wissend, dass es nichts zu wissen gibt. Glorreich und einfältig.
Das Eine tun und das Andere nicht lassen. Den Sinn leben, keinen Nutzen, keinen Zweck mehr im Leben suchen.
Tanzen, weinen, singen und verzweifeln und sich wieder aufraffen, kurz: superlebendig, in alle Richtungen gleichzeitig rennen, um wieder zum Zentrum zurückzukehren.
Bald wird keiner mehr an mich denken. Hat es überhaupt je irgend wer getan?
Buzzel° kann nicht beschrieben werden.
Buzzel verkauft Dir nicht nur den Gebrauch eines Zimmers für eine bestimmte Anzahl €uros, £ounds oder $ollars, er bietet Dir eine Erfahrung, etwas was Du mitnehmen und zu dem Du zurückkehren kannst.
Komm her und sieh für Dich selbst.
Buzzel esta mas allá de una descripción
Buzzel no te vende el uso de una habitación para un cierto numero de €uros, £ounds o $ollars, te ofrece una experiencia, algo que puedes llevarte y a donde puedes regresar.
Ven a verlo por ti mismo.
