"Daria and Heine, our amazing hosts have built a breathtaking getaway, and we can’t express how truly spectacular it was to be welcomed into their home. We did a hikes, canoeing, mindfulness and yoga practice, ate mind-blowing plant based food by, planet and moon gazing through one of their telescopes, and had an over all life changing experience."

We’ve been there. Working long hours, rarely making time for ourselves, and not listening enough to our inner voice.

Mindfulness and nature were two things that allowed us to see our life from a more balanced perspective and reconnect as a couple. We opened our eyes for the first time and realized that we postponed our true dreams for too long.

As soon as we created space for self-care and learned how to keep stress at healthy levels, creativity and courage flourished. So did our relationship. We created Bliss & Stars to share our passions, our long-life learnings, and the experience of self-discovery by living with no fear.


The days are designed to give you plenty of time to slow down and be together.

There are meditations and breathing & relaxation practices.

You’ll spend a lot of time being, eye gazing and enjoying each others company.

You’ll be counting shooting stars and looking deep into the night sky through one of our telescopes.

There will also be plenty of time to relax by the pool or the river, listen to the birds sing and watch the water flow.

"Location, location, location! That is what made me instantly fall in love with Bliss & Stars. On the edge of a secluded mountain outside Clanwilliam along the Doring River, THIS place is special! Not only is the land and incredible accommodation special but the owners are what make the experience something else. I really hope to make this spot a place to retreat to for many years to come."
