This is an off-grid, self-sufficient, self contained, Earthship studio apartment in the semi-rural Adelaide Hills, 45min drive from the CBD. Guests will experience a unique stay with a tiny eco-footprint. Close to Adelaide Hills wineries, golf course, bush-walks and other tourist attractions. The Freney family live next door in a passive solar strawbale home - close by if you need advice on sailing the "ship". A place where you can experience the future of sustainable housing!

The space

Guests will need to respect the limitations of the off-grid systems for power, water and sewage and take care with the natural building finishes.

The bed is a 100% latex futon mattress, low to the ground so it may be difficult to get in and out of bed if you are elderly. Sheets are luxurious 1200 TC pure cotton.

Delicious vegetarian breakfast ingredients, including free range eggs and honey from the property, supplied (but not prepared/served).

There is a wood heater (which also serves as a cook top, oven and it also boosts the solar hot water heater). Wood is supplied from May to September.

Guest access

Guests will have the Earthship all to themselves.

Interaction with guests

I am generally available or a phone call away should guests need any help.

We expected the Earthship Ironbank to be an inspiring stay, but we didn't realise just how relaxing and nourishing it would be. So many little details were thought of- beautiful breakfast provisions, lots of great reading material and a couple of extra treats. The bath was a perfect way to unwind in the evening and well worth saving your hot water for! Most of all, we left feeling that there is a more mindful way to live and to build houses. We will definitely be back. Thank you for having us, Zoe and Marty!

Lovely and very unique spot for a quiet and completely sustainable weekend away for the environmentally conscious. Lovely owners Martin and Zoe are friendly and relaxed. Very nice facilities with an extremely unique indoor green house with Palms, Tomatoes and Rhubarb etc. All kept warm by a toasty wood fire with built in pizza oven. Will be looking to come back to this little hide away with my partner in the future.

We loved staying at the earthship. It was a perfect winter getaway that was equal parts inspiring and relaxing. We loved using the wood oven to make pizza and the brekky provisions were great.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Earthship. We were pleasantly surprised by the variety of vegan breakfast choices Zoe and Marty provided for us. It was super warm and cozy inside even though it was middle of winter! Starting the day with morning yoga in the sunroom surrounded by beautiful indoor plants was the best part of our stay. We wish we could have stayed there longer, thank you Marty and Zoe!
