Buchu Blues Stilbaai Self Catering Accommodation

Buchu Blues, a somewhat hidden self-catering accommodation for two in the coastal town of Still Bay in the Western Cape, South Africa. Sitting at the far end of a long, narrow, sloping plot, the apartment borders on a wide green strip of conserved fynbos and milk-wood trees.

While relaxing on the patio smelling the unique scent of the natural fynbos and other plant species, you can enjoy hearing a variety of bird song. Looking down on the wide green belt, harbouring a wide range of animals, you might be surprised to see a bushbuck. Lifting your gaze, you can enjoy the blue strip of ocean on the horizon melting into the different shade of blue of the sky. Every day the blue of the sea and sky will be different, all depending on the mood of the weather. At night time, you can hear the roaring ocean, undisturbed by your quiet presence.

This snug, serene abode is near enough to walk to most amenities, so you can park your car, switch off your phone and forget that there is a world out there. Like the buchu plant benefits your physical health, Buchu Blues will benefit your inner health.

Sky Blues, Sea Blues, BuchuBlues

When you lift up your eyes and look over the green bush, and over the houses on the other side of the green belt, you can enjoy the blue strip of ocean on the horizon melting into the different blue of the sky. Everyday the blue of the sea and sky will be different, all depending on the mood of the weather. Here the creative soul will find an abundance of inspiration to create something, be it sculpture, painting, composing or writing. This place can heal a weary spirit, it can rekindle the spark that seems to have burned out in your life.

This snug, serene abode is near enough to walk to most amenities, so you can park your car, switch off your phone and forget that there is a world out there. Like the buchu plant benefits your physical health, BuchuBlues will benefit your inner health.

For the more daring there are different hiking trails, such as the hike from Still Bay to Jongensfontein, another pretty coastal village some 9 km from Still Bay. Or the scenic, but sometimes challenging mountain bike trails to be conquered by the fit and the furious.

Exhilarating game drives through different game reserves in the area are also available to those interested in wildlife. Some of the reserves are breeding farms for exotic species such as the buffalo, sable antelope and nyala. Furthermore you can do some whale watching during the whaling season (June-November) when the southern right whales (noorkapper) come south to breed in these waters.

Curious minds

Or the shell middens where the ancient people disposed of their waste. The Blombos Museum of Archaeology where cave drawings and other artefacts of the ancient people can be perused. Palinggat where one can witness the feeding of the eels by hand while listening to the incredible facts about these eels. On the eastern side of the river, there is the ‘Tuin op die Brak’ garden promoting the indigenous plants of the area.

Visit the cheese-producing farm, Kasselshoop and learn about the process of making cheese while tasting their various delicious cheeses. Or visit the local gin distillery for a taste of their pride and joy. There are various wine-farmers around bottling their own wines where you can visit and of course taste their wine.

Formal sport

Furthermore Still Bay has a lovely golf course where you are welcome to join in for a game or two. Likewise there is a bowling green with a view over the ocean, so striking it may threaten take your mind off the game.

BuchuBlues Selfsorgverblyf in Stilbaai

Soos die boegoebossie die liggaam skoonmaak, so maak Buchu Blues die siel skoon. ‘n Ietwat weggesteekte selfsorg akkommodasie vir twee in die kusdorpie, Stilbaai in die Wes-Kaap. Op die onderste punt van die lang, smal afdraand erf wat grens aan ‘n wye groenstrook oortrek met fynbos en melkhoutbome.

Die eienaars wil graag ‘n plek bied aan persone wat ‘n tydjie nodig het weg van alle tegnologie en verpligtings. Hier kan jy op die stoep sit en die fynbos ruik terwyl jy na die voëlgesang luister. In die groenstrook woon allerhande kleinwild soos meerkatte, muishonde, dassies, skilpaaie en so ook bokkies. Hulle drink water in die stroompie wat deur die groenstrook loop. Jy mag dalk besoek kry van ‘n krap of padda wat dit bietjie ver van die water gewaag het.

As jy verby die groenstrook kyk, sien jy die blou strook oseaan en wat insmelt in die anderste blou van die lug. Elke dag het die weer ‘n ander bui en die blou van die see en die lug verander daarmee saam.

Dis binne loopafstand van die meeste nodige dinge. Daar is ‘n Welcome Pack met waardevolle inligting en so ook ‘n Gasteboek. Deel asseblief jou ervarings wanneer jy die boek teken!
