Charming wooden eco-chalet for a couple or a couple with a baby (baby cot available on request). This place is ideal for nature lovers or simply to leave the hustle bustle of city life. Nestled in the rainforest, this hideaway will allow you to experience sustainable lifestyle, visit the surroundings, relax in a quiet environment and just reconnect with nature.
By staying at the eco chalet, you are supporting native forest regeneration and the protection of countless species. Since we arrived in 2013, we have planted more than 1000 native trees and plan to keep going.
THE ECO CHALET OFFERS
- a cosy bedroom (equipped with a queen size bed, linen, blankets, chest of drawers, small fridge, desk & chairs, candles, oil diffuser... The mosquito net is cotton and mostly there for the romantic look as we don't have mosquitoes)
- a private balcony with table and sofa bed to relax.
- a private shower (we provide towels, eco friendly organic soap & shampoo at no charge.) The timer is helping to observe a 3 min shower.
- a private composting toilet (not smelly) with recycling toilet paper.
- a kitchenette with a small fridge, a 2 burner gas stove, cutlery, basic cooking equipment (pot, tea pot, plunger, pan, chopping board, crockery...), a selection of teas and coffee, recycling bins. WATER IS SUITABLE FOR DRINKING.
Our off the grid sustainable lifestyle is very precious to us. We therefore ask our dear guests to respect it by being WATER WISE and POWER WISE. A 3 min shower (timer in the shower) is greatly appreciated. Because we rely on solar, be aware that you can't use a kettle, a hair drier, a toaster or any other electrical device whose power consumption is too high.
A little outdoor fire pit is close to the eco-chalet and the main house (which is 15 m from the eco chalet). Feel free to ask if you'd like us to light the fire for you!
FRENCH BREAKFAST can be offered for a small fee ($10-$15 for 2) from 7 am to 9 am on weekdays. Times can be adjusted on the weekend. It consists of toasted organic bread with jam, our own honey, tea and coffee. Croissant and pain au chocolat available on request. Please, let us know when booking or when arriving.
Although we like the eco chalet cosy and comfortable, we wish to keep it rustic and simple so that people can reconnect with nature. It is not a luxury accommodation with swimming pool, wi-fi & air conditioning as our aim is for you to experience a sustainable lifestyle and reconnect with nature.
A beautiful swimming hole is located 5 min drive from here if you wish to have a swim.
Finally, our property is absolutely PET FREE and SMOKE FREE.

Atención a los huéspedes
Almost always, there will be someone here to greet you, show you through the accommodation and answer your questions, so welcome, feel at ease and don't hesitate to ask for anything you need (nice surrounding places, restaurants, have a walk on the property, fire wood, plant a native tree to regenerate the natural habitat... )
Want a romantic thing to do? light up the dam with a few water candles at night.
Want to leave a positive footprint or just do something different? Plant your tree with your special message whether you wish to regenerate the habitat or to celebrate something.
Don't hesitate to ask.
We have extensively travelled in Australia and are used to travelers (WHV).
As a family, our nice kids/baby will enjoy playing/interacting with you if you feel like it. We leave it up to you how much you would like to interact with us during your stay and will totally respect your privacy.
Not being an hotel, we don't consider you as customers but guests and feel a minimum of polite interactions are part of the Airbnb experience.
Don't be shy and ask if you are in need of anything, we will do our best to accommodate you.
If you wish just a place to stay for the night without being charmed by what we offer or if you don't like nature, please, don't book.

As you noticed, these names don't sound Australian. We are French family living in Australia since 2007. After a one year long trip to visit the country with our baby boy that changed our lives, we decided to settle in Australia.
Family now counts two wonderful, adventurous boys and a little girl.
We love nature, hiking, traveling, meeting people, sustainability and Australia!
Enjoy this unique part of the world, take time to relax and discover the countryside, but most of all, experience sustainable lifestyle and reconnect with nature!
