Our off grid eco house is nestled amongst the native mallee forest with views of the calm Bay of Shoals waters. Designed to fit in with the peaceful landscape, wild life is right at the door step and the house situated on 5 acre native bush property with privacy in mind. Astonishingly, it is just 5 minutes drive to Kingscote that has cafes, restaurants, pubs and supermarket. A large deck is the perfect spot to relax with a drink while wallabies, kangaroos, echidnas and birdlife pass by.

The space
Open plan living area is light and spacious and has been architecturally designed with passive solar in mind. In winter it stays warm and in summer it remains cool. There is a wood fire for cosy romantic winter nights and in Summer it is a perfect retreat from a hot beach day. All the windows have native bush and seaviews. Because the house is on a 5 acre bush block, and it is private from any neighbours, you can even overlook the natural bush land from the shower! Both the dining area and the bedroom open onto a large deck with views of the bay of shoals and large mallee gum trees perfect for a alfresco brunch or a glass of wine from the Bay of Shoals Winery which is just a couple of kilometres down the road.

Other things to note
While our eco house contains essential appliances, such as, fridge, range hood, washing machine, television, hair dryer, fans, gas stove, grill, wood fireplace, and non electric coffee makers. We get our electrical energy from solar power. It is good practise to conserve energy by switching off lights and appliances (except the fridge and back porch light) while not using them or leaving the house.
