Immersed in the Rainforest
This tiny sustainable house has been custom built to complement the principles of ‘Shinrinyoku’ (forest therapy), with its porthole providing a bird's eye view of the magical forest. Ukiyo means “floating world” or living in the moment detached from the bothers of life. And that is precisely what we did. We spent most of our time soaking up our senses: observing the rain dripping on the ferns and the sun rays striking through the towering gums, taking a slow walk on the private rainforest Therapy Trail, and enjoying a hot bath in this endless paradise.
We also loved exploring the natural wonders nearby, driving the meandering roads to waterfalls, rivers, and beaches. After indulging in some local craft beers, the tiny house made the perfect place to retreat at night to enjoy some family time over a nice dinner and a glass of wine offered by our host. Thanks to the delightful Heather, this place is constantly evolving. We cannot wait to return one day....
