TURN OFF YOUR DEVICES and unwind in our off-grid, no wifi, no cell, up-cycled tiny-house. Uniquely crafted from native and recycled materials.
Soak beneath the stars by visiting nearby natural hot-springs or lighting a fire under the outdoor bath.
Enjoy outdoor living on the deck or by the campfire/bbq.
Or stay in next to the cosy pot-belly fire which heats the water for the large-enough-for-two shower and shower by candlelight (wood and candles provided).
In the morning open french doors for great views from the handcrafted bed.
Take a tour round the rest of our organic homestead and sample our home produce to have a taste of "the good life" (free-range eggs, farm fresh milk and home-kill butchery also locally available).
Genuine West Coast hospitality from hosts who live on-site (40 metres away) but will respect your privacy.
