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
I was met with a big hug from the heart. Buzzels open, honest and positive attitude made me feel like a friend not only a passing by-tourist. First day I spent inside the geodome, I just wanted to enjoy the good energy it creates. The sense of creative details and estethics make this place personal and different. The nature surrounding with all the farm animals, the flowers, the lake makes it a tranquil and renewing place to stay.
Absolutely loved our stay at Buzzell's. Animals everywhere including a very cute cat. Beautiful scenery and the dome was perfect for getting away from it all. Really comfy bed and loved the outdoor shower. What an experience! Next time we'll stay for longer and really embrace the surroundings.
El sitio es espectacular, vistas increíbles, intimidad máxima aún estando cerca de la casa. La experiencia del baño al aire libre y de dormir en una cúpula geodésica es maravillosa.
La casa principal tiene todo lo necesario que no tienes en la cúpula: cocina, frigoríficos, baños y una minitienda por si se te olvida algo. La distancia a las tiendas más cercanas hace necesario que lleves todo lo que puedas necesitar.
Buzzel y Antonia encantadores y buenos anfitriones.
The property is wonderfully located in the country side facing africa. Buzzel is a host that pays a lot of attention to all of his guests, which creates a family atmosphere. We will definitely return.
We loved Buzzel's place. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The dome is super nice and definitely romantic. We were a bit nervous about the outdoor shower but we really enjoyed it. Plus you have access to the main house with kitchen, hammocks, bathrooms, etc. It is best if you have a car, but we didn't and we still had a great time. Will be returning for sure!
Its was great on the mountain at Buzzels. Very quiet, beautiful nature. We never such a nice (open air) bathroom/ shower. Antonia was there, to take good care about us. Hospitality was okay!
The dome it self is a nice place to sleep in with very comfortable bed!
An amazing experience: sleeping with the wind blowing, having breakfast or a glass of wine in the private deck, taking a shower in the open air bathroom! The dome is carefully decorated, the views are beautiful, and the location is also very convenient (by car) if you want to explore the many different beaches of the region. Buzzel is very welcoming and Antonia is just one of the most pleasant people I have ever met! She's always smiling, willing to help and really takes care of every detail with a lot of love!
The only negative in our case was that we had very very hot weather (33-34ºC for most of the day) and the dome can get reeeally warm in the afternoon and only cooling down around 10pm. So in the end, we spend less time inside the dome than we wished...
At last, the main house serves as a great support with additional bathrooms, kitchen, living room and a nice terrace to interact with the other guests if you like.
So, in summary, all great, only wished for 10 degrees less. :)
Ah, ask for the "romantic package" and be surprised by a bed covered of flowers and a lovely basket with fruits, sweets and wine!

The Airbnb profile page does not give him a choice. There is only one possibility:
(“Hi, I am Buzzel”)
Let's try it a little differently:
"Hello", "THEY CALL ME BUZZEL"
Buzzel is beyond description...
When I tried to describe myself how I feel inside, few people booked rooms, but then I found out that it was wintertime when not many guests come here anyway, so I put the old description back in
After all these years, Buzzel still does not know, who he is. The eternal questions remain:
To be, or not to be?
Who am I?
It has been proven to him, that even this “I” he is referring to, cannot be found anywhere. God is nowhere! . . . or, God is now here?!
Is there a Real “I”?
Buzzel has looked in a lot of places. ¿What if it cannot be found in a place? What if it has been here all along?
He still does not know, who he is, but at least he has found out, what he is not.
Even in almost seventy years he has not found out. Am I, am I not? Am I God, am I part of God? Is God in me? Am I a manifestation of God? Am I a manifestation of the devil? Or am I both at the same time, interwoven and overlapping? Since there is no findable “I”, what exactly is he referring to, when he says “I”?
The divine comedy? The dance of existence?
Questions, questions and very few clear answers.
He knows that he does not know.
He lives in the certainty, that the conscience does not solve the problems.
Er lebt in der Gewissheit, dass das Gewissen nicht der Weisheit letzter Schluss sein kann. What about moral?
Ist sie auch auf ihn anwendbar?
Obwohl er weiss, dass das “Ich” nicht zu finden ist, ist Buzzel trotzdem nicht verschwunden.
Leben in der Ungewissheit. Lieben in der Leere. Alle Wesen nur flüchtige Erscheinungen in seinem Geist. 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.
Es ist sogar gewiss, dass auch all diese Einsichten nur auf seinem eigenen Mist gewachsen sind.
Ja, er hat Gott gefunden, aber nicht den Gott, den man ihm hat andrehen wollen.
Nein, den wirklichen, den es auch in dem Sinn nicht gibt, in dem ihn die Meisten erschaffen haben.
It is even certain, that all these insights grew on his own heap of manure. Yes, he has found God, but not the God they tried to sell to him. No, the real one, the one that does not exist in the sense in which most of us have created him or her. To live with this mystery, to flower in it without limits. With the strength of conscious immortability. There is no Buzzel, there is nothing, on what he could hang onto.
Yes, or maybe not!
To live in the Mystery, crazy, no “baaing” herd animal.
Mit dem Mysterium zu leben, verrückt zu sein, kein blökendes Herdentier. 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.
Hi, they call me Buzzel, but I don’t have a clue who this is.
Born: Yes, along time ago.
Died: Not quite yet.
Living in the mystery, avoiding the herd.
Bald wird keiner mehr an mich denken. Hat es überhaupt je irgend wer getan?
Um mich wird keiner weinen. Ich muss das wohl selber für mich tun.
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 are still roaming around freely in the meadows and hills and where you don’t have to lock the doors of your car, the house or your heart.
You will most likely enjoy living in our space and share our way and view of life. Come and share your peace of mind or find it here with us, fellow traveler, 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 of the place and the space, something you can take with you and where you can return to anytime.
Come here and feel for yourself.
Buzzel kann nicht beschrieben werden.
Nachdem ich mich wie oben beschrieben habe (das heisst, dass ich für mich selber festgestellt habe, dass eine Beschreibung für Buzzel nicht möglich ist) haben nur wenig Leute Zimmer gebucht. Dann habe ich festgestellt, dass es Winterzeit war, wo nur wenige Leute (website hidden) steht die richtige Beschreibung wieder drin.
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
Cuando he probado de describirme, poca gente ha reservado espacios, pues note que era invierno, el tiempo que solo poca gente va de vacaciones y he puesto la descripción original.
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.
