Let Your Heart Sing

Presenting the ultimate weekend retreat, dream home.
The Subtropical paradise of Tamborine Mountain rises 600 metres above the Gold Coast. Just 30 minutes' drive to some Australia's best beaches. A mere hour to restaurants, entertainment facilities and galleries of Brisbane City.

Tamborine Mountain enjoys the sublime climate of South East Queensland without the summer humidity of the low lands. Statistically it is on average several degrees cooler in Summer than on the Gold Coast.
Once entirely covered in towering rainforest and subsequently lush dairy farms, the area has preserved several important National Parks with extensive walks and lookouts. The village centres support many restaurants, cafes, antique and craft shops in addition to the vineyards, orchards and gardens that flourish in the deep, rich, red volcanic soils. Hide away in tranquil seclusion and never leave the mountain or enjoy the attractions, shopping options and theme parks of the Gold Coast within 40 minutes' drive.

We stress: SKYhouse is NOT to be used as a party house. Only those guests specifically booked may stay. SKYhouse is a quiet retreat. If this condition is abused we reserve the right to charge a fee.

Well behaved pets upon application. Please note due to mountain conditions TV reception cannot be guaranteed. There is a supply of DVDs on hand.

Design Aspects

SKY HOUSE's expert architect has maximized energy & water efficiency. SKYhouse is 6 star energy rated with 5 star comfort. Solar efficiency is maximized by Eco-friendly construction, clever design, modern materials and old fashioned simplicity and common sense.

The 5 saw-tooth pavilions with large clerestories to the north allow solar winter heating and light into all rooms, whilst the 2 inch thick travertine stone floors act as an internal heat tank collecting winter sunlight and releasing it during the evening.

This takes into account elevation, views and climate. Passive heating and cooling features, Solar hot water & electricity panels provide the bulk of power. All this, whilst retaining a luxuriant ambiance. Settle in on the vast leather sofa whilst warming yourself by the log-fire.

Lie back and read a book from our library or enjoy a DVD on the large flat screen TV.

Or open back the glass walls and just breathe....

SKY is reliant on Tamborine Mountain's pure rainwater, collected in tanks.

We ask you to please conserve our precious water.

As waste water is treated on-site by way of an Enviro-cycle system, we ask that you please do not place any rubbish or bleach products in the toilets or into any plumbing fixture.

We ask that you PLEASE REFRAIN FROM SMOKING inside the house.

SKY's Compendium is available upon your arrival, with a list of handy Guest Information.

Designed to achieve 6 star energy efficiency.
Sky House will challenge your views on sustainable and energy efficient design.

Not only does this house have superb design integrity, it particularly suits the elevated site on which it is built and the environment it surrounds.

The Gold Coast City views from this property are incredible by day or night.

Sky House captures the very essence of Tamborine Mountain living in a most sophisticated fashion.

For a more technical brief, do read on.

Five identical and tapered, saw tooth pavilions are positioned with northern clerestories that allow solar passive winter heating and lighting to all rooms while maximising the expansive views to the east.

Fifty millimetre thick travertine stone floor paving provides an internal heat sink, collecting winter sun during the day to release into the interiors at night.

Overhangs provide protection during the summer months with high louvres also allowing the control of ventilation in all weather conditions. Prefabricated and pre finished metal and polystyrene sandwich panels are bolted to the lightweight structural steel skeleton to provide highly insulated and simply installed floors and roofs.

Timber joinery with low-emissive glass on the north east, fully opens to the view while providing a 30% greater insulation than similar single glazing. Multi-cell poly carbonate sheeting to the clerestories and raked in fills is also used to provide natural light and winter sun with a high level of insulation. Solar hot water, a 1kw solar array, gas appliances, and concealed low energy lighting to all areas have also been installed to minimise long term power consumption.

The 33000 litre water tank provides structural support for the large cantilevered outdoor living area above. A 5000 litre header tank at the rear of the steep site provides a gravity fed water supply. Wastewater is treated and dispersed onsite by a biolytic worm filter.

Applied finishes are minimal and where possible natural and untreated. The rear courtyard is terraced.

Now you must see it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great views!!! Great house that fitted in 7 adults and two kids comfortably - close to shops and beautiful scenery. The access is not for the faint hearted or for those with large 4wd vehicles

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was our second time we stayed at the beautiful SKYHouse and it blows us away every time we have been there. The amazing views and surrounding rainforest allow you to completely unwind and relax. The unique architecture (all the interior being custom designed), combined with the overall eco-friendly concept make this place one of a kind! Cooking in the commercial style kitchen, drinking a glass of wine on the outside deck or sitting in front of a burning fire on a rainy night are just a few of all the beautiful qualities the SkyHouse has to offer!We will definitely come back for a third time :)!

We have discovered many amazing places at Mt Tamborine (including our wedding venue!) while staying here and we would highly recommend this place to anyone.
