DESCRIPTION FOR THE GUESTHOUSE AND MORE
The whole first floor of the rebuilt and recently refurbished 100 year old rural country house is divided into 5 unique bedrooms, each one with its special charm. All are equipped with wooden shutters to keep out the sometimes too bright sunlight and the heat in summertime. The views are breathtaking and one cannot get enough to fill ones heart with the beauty of this almost untouched zone of the Spanish peninsula. The tip of Europe, only a dolphin's leap accross to Marrocco, the African continent.
The community kitchen with inside and outside stoves invite to cook your favorite meals and devour them at the oval wooden table in the middle of the shaded patio. The grill invites to cook shrimps and eggplants on it. Gazpacho the famous, delicious mixture of cucumbers, tomatos, 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. The hammock await you for your after lunch siesta. La dolce far niente par excellence. The climate is incomparable to anything in the northern hemisphere. Cool seabreezes, 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 4 miles to the southwest.
A reed encircled lake born from the springs on the hilly side of our land the national park, “Los Alcornocales”, an Eden, an untouched fleck of earth.
A picture is worth a thousand words and it is left to you how to indulge into the phantasies how deep you will enjoy your leasure and enjoyment with us.
Inspired as you will feel you will heat up the pizza oven to bake your favorite cakes in it after a few hours of warmup time. The turning grill is apt to grill the fish that you have caught in the ocean or bought in our local fishmarket.
Locate us on the map and you get the idea in which ideal location we are for all the activities you can imagine during your stay with us.

If you want to try out another one of our diverse rooms and spaces after a few nights or experiment the first nights in the tent by the lake or in the Wooden Box and then settle for a more conventional bedroom with real walls around you, you are welcome to do so, if we have vacancies. Experience your hearts desires.

We assume that our guests know the basics.
The use of the kitchen is communal, that means everybody can use it and store food and provisions in the fridge, cabinets and freezer.
The left behind provisions of previous guests are to be consumed. Please eat first of all the perishable foods. Please separate the different trash, (metal cans and bricks, glass, compost) from the general garbage.
We stock a certain health foods in our warehouse at the main entrance and it can be purchased there during normal business hours.
Our staff takes care of the basic cleaning and washing. If you use the kitchen, cutlery, dishes and glasses etc., please clean and wash them afterwards. If you want to use the washing machine, please coordinate with our staff.
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 telephone only in the office area 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. Do not smoke in non-safe places or while walking around on the property. In case of fire, call the emergency number: 112 and advise our staff and the other guests and also help extinguish it. There are various water hoses in different places.
If you are bringing your animals, please make sure they do not not harm or molest other human or animal inhabitants. Extremely loud dogs may have to spend the nights in the 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. 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
Todo muy bien, Antonia es un encanto.
La casa es una experiencia en sí.
Bien comunicada, muy buen rollo y la habitación es una maravilla.
We do have a very fast WiFi network at the business centre, where you also have access to a computer and to a printer. It is on purpose, that we do not have a WiFi network at the main guesthouse. We prefer that our guests talk to each other in the here and now and do not get lost somewhere in cyberspace
Thank you for staying with us
I stayed at Baños de la Luz for 3 days. The room Estrella was spacious, comfy and the whole place nicely located on the hills outside Facinas with gorgeous views, mountain tranquility and a few degrees less than in Tarifa, which made staying there quite pleasant. Los Baños consists of several types of accommodation, ranging from simple tents to trailer vans that are randomly dispersed throughout the area giving it a feng shui touch. Antonia and Buzzel were welcoming hosts, being available to their guests and staying around to make sure everybody is happy. The main house was quite busy during my stay and the shared facilities like the kitchen crowded at times. You would have to be into meeting 10 people already just after waking up on your way to the first coffee on the morning and also would have to enjoy loud bongo play and dancing at 11am, to get maximum satisfaction from staying at Los Baños. I also found 80 euros for Estrella pricey given that the toilet and shower were shared (there is a bath tub in the room) and also compared to other airbnb offers in the area. Overall a nice place for single travellers seeking to meet a hippy style crowd on the mountains of Facinas and within easy access to the gorgeous beaches of Tarifa and Bolonia.
WHY WE HAVE TO CHARGE WHAT WE CHARGE
if we could do it cheaper and still survive, we would do it.
Please consider that July and August are the only 2 months where we have to make up for the losses of the rest of the year. If you book in October or in May, when it is more beautiful here than at the time when everybody from the northern hemisphere wants to dip their body into the cooling waves of the Atlantic Ocean, the price for ESTRELLA for example is only € 54 and in November it is down to € 42.
Come and stay with us for a while, where horses and cows, donkeys, foxes, deers 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 of 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 or a longer moment.
¡Be my guest!
We are 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. We are 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.
Es sind nicht die Schlafgelegenheiten, welche die Sache teuer machen. Es ist das ganze drum herum. Die Gärtner, welche das ganze Jahr lang ein Einkommen haben müssen, die Hypothekarzinsen, welche das ganze Jahr hindurch auflaufen etc. etc.
Es ist eher kurzsichtig, (und glaub mir, ich habe versucht sehr bescheiden zu sein) alles zu verschenken weil irgendwann der Zeitpunkt kommt, wo du selber nichts mehr hast und dann auch nichts mehr verschenken kannst.
Was Du auch noch berücksichtigen musst, das ist dass die Gäste auch Stühle und Tische, Geschirr und Bestecke brauchen und ich laufend die Infrastruktur ausbauen muss um a jour zu bleiben. Ich lass dich gerne mal in unseren Aufwand Einsicht nehmen:
Abwasser, Wasseraufbereitung, Internet etc. etc., zudem sind unsere Einrichtungen meistens nicht besser, nachdem sie durch die Gäste benutzt werden und müssen restauriert oder ersetzt werden. Was die meisten Gäste auch meist übersehen, das ist, dass wir auf den von uns verrechneten Preis noch 10% MWSt dem Staat abliefern und dass uns die Buchungsagenturen eine Kommission von 3 –15 % abziehen. Das heisst also, dass wir von den € 80 nur ca. 60 – 70 ausbezahlt bekommen.
Einmal ganz davon abgesehen, dass ich/wir für unsere Investition und Arbeit, unsere Präsenz Geld verdienen müssen um über die Runden zu kommen und motiviert zu bleiben.
Unsere Garantie: Wenn du in unserer Gegend zum gleichen Zeitpunkt ein gleichwertiges Angebot* findest, so vergüten wir dir gerne die doppelte Differenz.
keine veschmutzte Luft
Wasser frisch ab Quelle
Günstige Lage abseits vom hektischen Treiben
Angenehme, menschenfreundliche, verständnissvolle Atmosphäre etc.

The craziest enviroment of Tarifa, Tanger and the windsurfers hype
Buzzel felt like a very warm and interesting person. The property is magical, so much love and attention has clearly gone into it. It's definitely on our list of special places to stay, and I'm sure Lidiya and I will be back. The room is just as in the photo, a huge comfy bed, beautiful cosy hammock, and large bath (which comfortably fits two :) ). You won't be disappointed.
This a lovely ,relaxing place, even with language differences we were made to feel very welcome.the views from the terrace are spectacular and local places such as Barbate and Tarifa are great places to visit from this base.
Los Banos is 1 of the most special place we have ever stayed. Our room 'Estrella' was beautiful!! We were welcomed by Antonia, who was so sweet and showed us everything. She only speaks spanish but she really tries vry hard to make us understand everything. She put 2 extra beds in our room for the kids. The bath in the room is fantastic! Everything else in the house is 'communal', which gives a great atmosphere. You cook together and share the dining table. In the evening you can relax on the terras, which gives you enough possibilities to have some privacy. The surroundings are beautiful! You can enjoy an incredible sunset with a glass of wine. I recommend this place to everyone!!
Well, what can we say about Los Banos......it absolutely exceeded our expectations, in every way. It is the ultimate tranquil haven and we've never felt so relaxed. Buzzel, Antonia and Manuel made us feel so welcome .
The views are absolutely breathtaking and our room, The main bedroom, was immaculate.
We would love to come back here again and would highly recommend it to anyone who longs for beautiful sunsets amidst a backdrop of rolling mountains.
You will need a car as
Bolonia beach is a 15 minute drive away, as is Punta Paloma.
Tarifa is about 20 mins away by car. Check out Bien star, a cool bar/ restaurant on the beach.
Joel and Coral x
This experience was really special. The location was amazing, the views and the relaxing atmosphere, the guesthouse and the room were very homey and equipped with so many special details. Buzzel is a great guy, we enjoyed every moment there and the most interesting discussions on his cosy terrace in the night. The kitchen was very well equipped, the view from the terrace to the surrounding mountains and the sea is spectacular, you get very much catched by the quietness and landscape, the time we could spend there was much too short. We´d love to come back soon.
Thanks for everything, Buzzel.

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.

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.
