Environmentally friendly in great setting
The owner has installed solar power to generate energy for the grid supplementing the energy used during your stay at Cara. All water for the house is harvested and stored on site. The water used in the house (including water used for toilets, showers, the kitchen and laundry, washing machine and dishwasher), is treated on-site and returned to the land clean.
All care has been taken to preserve the surroundings for you and future visitors to this unique part of the Otway coast. In choosing Cara for your holiday you will be helping to preserve the wonderful local environment for the enjoyment of future generations. Kennett River will get you right away from the activity of more populated holiday destinations while offering the convenience of access to a local shop (at Kennett River) and a gourmet cafe and a pub at Wye River (10 minutes away). Apollo Bay or Lorne are about 30 min. driving from Kennett River.
This location is perhaps best kept secret in this spectacular coastal region.
