Rustic outside - 5 star simple luxury inside. Fully-self contained, compact and comfy. Solar hot water & power for the perfect eco-friendly holiday. Situated between two National Parks.
The Tin Chalet is in the middle of the 'farmyard' of an organic property, next to the garden and orchard, with goats, chooks and Clydesdales across the fence and the beautiful Brodribb River a hop and a skip away. Organic produce, milk and eggs in season.
Can provide breakfast if needed (extra charge).
Recently built, it still has a few finishing touches to complete but is fully functional.
In winter this is warm, having double glazed windows and being well insulated all round. The wood stove cooks meals and keeps the place cosy.
The upstairs bedroom has a double bed, and there is an optional pull-out single sofa bed downstairs.
Bathroom and laundry are off the verandah, with an inside/outside pan toilet at the end (certain considerations are needed).
The kitchen has a wood stove plus a double burner gas stove for cooking, a small 40 litre fridge and a cool room. There is a small study nook as well as a 2 seater lounge to flop on.
Interaction with guests
To make contact with the host or ask a question just cooee out and wander over (calling out out is the 'country doorbell'). I'm just 60 metres away behind the sheds and chook yard.
Other things to note
There is no mobile phone reception here, and no TV. Goongerah is in a black spot, being deep in the hills. The host's landline can be used if necessary though for taking messages or making calls. A phone box is also 1km up the road at the hall. There is wifi at the local community hall which can be used (1 km away), or when convenient, you can hook into the host's satellite wifi which has only a short range of 30m or so (doesn't reach the Chalet)
Goongerah is nestled between two national parks - the Errinudra to the east and the Snowy to the west. The tree-lined Brodribb River runs along the edge of the property and is fed from the forests and Wildreness area upstream.
Visit the rainforests and 600 yo giant trees of the Errinundra. There are several short walks and one or two drive yourself tours. The Snowy River is about 1 hour's drive and the Marlo coast is about 1 1/2 hours drive.
No smoking inside please.
If cloudy weather, use of excessive solar power needs to considered. Minimise non-essential use (1-2 lights - not 5), but fine for basics otherwise.
From Dec 20, 2017 - Feb 15, 2018 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
