Weekend Greetings from The ‘Banana House’

From banana shed to ‘Banana House’:
Interior photo’s of our guest room. We refurbished the old banana shed into a guest room. Minimalist style with all essentials in it and with respect for the original century old plastering of the wall.
 
Guest have a view on a new landscaped water wise garden and there is secure parking. WiFi free available in (partly covered) communal courtyard.

The Last Resort

Just outside our village something out of the ordinary is going on and that makes it all very intriguing. Eight or so people/couples each have a share in the Blue Moon community and all of these are extra-ordinary people with social engagement. Alternative energy sources and energy uses are experimented with, film- and theatre- decors are made (including those for US-movie makers who film on location in South Africa) and there is ….. The Last Resort. If you want to get rid of your kids for one or more days Craig and Cathy will not only look after them but will keep them so busy that you don’t have to look after them for a while when you collect them. We were there last Friday during a school outing of a pre-primary school. With simple means (no Nintendo or computer games, etc.) and in a nature concious/exploring way children are kept engaged with play, treasure hunts, camping (yes there are overnight facilities), etc.

Or as they state in their Facebook page: “We are a multi-functional venue with a heart. We do children’s parties ; children’s camps and live music concerts. Also available for private functions. We have a large sturdy stage with good lighting ; a dance area ; shaded areas ; a large, living labyrinth  and a comfortable tipi. Also a lovely dam and within walking distance to the village of Stanford. Blue Moon Community Farm is also home to an accomplished potter ; an alternative technology enthusiast and a vermiculturalist organic landscaper, amongst other interesting people“.

Craig sees also another market: “Stanford is more and more becoming a true nature destination. Parents who want a quiet holiday without their youngsters can drop them here and go to whatever accommodation in this area“.

When Peter met Jami ………..

Peter was in “the restaurant business” in Hermanus.

Jami was (still is BTW) the ‘Flower Queen’ of Stanford.

One day Jami went for a drink in a restaurant in Hermanus.
