Staying at the Tin Chalet was an awakening. What we experienced was an interior/exterior art gallery with minimal impact on its surroundings. Our stay was more than a chance to unwind and recharge, but also a quiet education on how we all should aspire to live everyday. Thank you Jill for allowing us to see the world through your eyes. A stay must be longer than 2 nights to fully comprehend. Next time.

I had a wonderful stay at the "Tin Chalet". The setting was beautiful, and the sustainability of the home was unlike anything I am used to. I have to admit I was worried about the overnight cold but I needn't have been. The 'chalet' was nice and cosy and the whole place was still a comfortable temperature the next morning after the the previous night's fire had gone out by midnight. There are some beautiful animals at Jill's property including the loveliest dogs you'd ever want to meet. My daughter was thrilled when one of the dogs led the way for us through the property to the door of the chalet. We were in a great location relative to the national parks and some nice walks. The seclusion of the property also had the added bonus of being 'offline' making it a great place to wind down. Thank you Jill for being a wonderful host too.

Jill was the perfect host. It was just the break we needed to stay at Jill's cozy chalet. The chalet was impeccably clean, and despite the cold outside, we were toasty and warm inside with the wood oven. It is a beautiful area as well to visit old growth forests and see some of the surrounding wildlife.

Jill was very welcoming. The chalet is the perfect retreat to get away. We are used to camping and this was simply a luxury home with the benefits of the outdoors. Beautiful rainforest scenery and plenty of wildlife / farm life. I loved the arga and how it warms the entire home. heats up the water (on top of solar powered heating). The house is very well insulated... the fire dies out at 2am, but the home was still warm in the morning (and gippslamd had some record low temperatures recently), so it just proves how well this eco holiday home has been built! We should all have homes like this one! We will definitely be back.
