Rustic eco-inspired abode.
Private nature bush setting, allows you to disconnect from everyday life. Your unique semi shipping container sleeps 2. A simple & mindful eco abode that gives you direct viewing to our plantation (comprising 10-12 specifies of trees) with privacy screens. Double bed & indoor wood fireplace offer an existence away from the norm. Shared bathroom with shower, toilet & additional outdoor shower for those daring under 15m walking distance. Eco consciously supplied with rainwater and solar power. An outdoor kitchenette provides basic cooking facilities including gas & Weber bbq, open fire, pots/pans, plates, cutlery and utensils.

Thoroughly relax and unwind in your intimate private bush setting. Take the time to make a cup of tea and enjoy it, light a fire, read a book, take a walk, go for a surf, a mountain-bike, take a nap. Reconnect with the warmth & abundance of fire with your own fire pit (restricted in fire danger periods) and if the night permits, revel in a sky of uninterrupted stars.
