Welcome to my secluded wilderness home.
Nestled on the banks of the pristine Hook Creek in the Shakespeare hills, this private 50 acre rainforest property is the perfect getaway for those seeking tranquillity and an authentic wilderness adventure.
The unique Eco Chalet is elegantly furnished with comfy old world charm and modern amenities, all set in landscaped gardens within a temperate rainforest.
I'm available to help make your holiday stay a delightful treasured experience.
Breathe the freshest air and drink the purest natural water whilst picnicking, fishing, swimming or fossicking in the creek for a hidden treasure. Be delighted by a glimpse of a Platypus, the rare Azure Kingfisher, Wedge-tailed Eagle or the mighty Blue Giant Freshwater Crayfish. For an extra adventure take a guided bush walking tour with your host into the hills, valleys and along the creek.
Enjoy breakfast on the veranda to the sound of the many native birds; relax on the afternoon sun deck; pamper your self in the huge bubble bath that opens up to the garden and over looks the creek.
Indulge in fresh local Tasmanian produce and wines in front of the open fire or alfresco dine by the creek. Self cater in the open plan designer kitchen with it's slow combustion oven and gas cook top. Experience and learn about solar powered living.
