This ECO Lodge is a high quality holiday home with a split level entry. Kowhai lodge is one of the 2 Eco-chalets side by side situated on a 5ha section in Mt Lyford. The wood features give the lodge it's unique character, from huge wooden beams on the ceiling to handcrafted towel rails in the bathroom. The 3 bedrooms offer the option for sleeping 3 couples or 6 singles. The lounge is classy and comfy with wide opening doors to create an easy access to the private sunny deck. A fully equipped kitchen with ground concrete benchtop will help you to create a superb holiday meal. The modern downstairs bathroom has a basin, toilet and shower while upstairs a second bathroom is supplied with toilet and basin. Internet access is available.

The accommodation is warm and comfortable and will give you an unforgettable holiday.

This eco lodge (Kowhai) has disabled access to the downstairs facilities.

A wood fired hot tub on the patio provides the perfect excuse for sitting outside at night gazing at the stars and listening to the frogs.

What's so ECO ?

The eco-chalets are designed to leave a minimal environmental footprint. The sun is used for heating both building and water. A smart system uses the heat from the roofspace to warm the floor. The mass of the building will retain this heat. For the colder days in winter a clean air logfire with wetback will fill in the gaps. The waste water of the chalet goes to a worm tank. We have our own sustainable firewood supply on the 5ha section. All our light fittings are low-energy with some fantastic LED's.

Our guests can't believe how warm and cosy the eco lodges are, truly a novelty !

Special conditions: Please note that the use of the woodfired outdoor hot tub incurs an additional cost of $30 per day. Advance notice for the use of the hot tub is required so we can have it preheated for you. Minimum stay: 2 nights for weekends/holidays; otherwise 1 night

  • Nice place to stay, but a couple of significant negative points

    Nice place to stay, but a couple of significant negative points. Firstly, the photos and description indicate a large house and property to be enjoyed by yourself. However, only one foot away is another unit, so a quiet weekend away can be ruined by the neighbours kids. Secondly, we got told off for using the hot tub on the last day of rental. If we are not allowed to use it on the last day so they have got time to clean it, then this should be clearly noted on the website. No trampoline!
