BRAHMINI BUSH FOREST LODGE
Brahmini is an aboriginal word meaning, Wild & Free. In Hindu, Brahmini also means, “Goddess” and “Guardian Against Misfortune”. Both cultural meanings of the name are truly fitting for this stunning estate, set on a 1700 sqm block in a location that is totally Wild yet Goddess gorgeous. Backing onto the Royal National Park, surrounded by thick bush forest offering an abundance of native birds, wildlife, and Freedom. ITS SIMPLY A PLACE TO GET LOST AND FIND YOURSELF!

The space
A DAY IN THE LIFE A OF BRAHMINI LODGE GUEST. During your stay be awoken by the sounds of nature, with cicadas humming (seasonal) or perhaps the echoes of laughing kookaburras greeting the morning sky, on other days it may just simply be the sound of silence in the wilderness, or the tinkling sound of raindrops hitting the tin roof above, either way, you may have to pinch yourself awake as it can often feel like you have not yet awoken from a beautiful dream!

Pull yourself out off one of two comfy king size beds or one queen size bed (3 separate private bedrooms), help yourself to a barista style latte, cappuccino from our full bean barista style coffee machine, while warming up in the mornings sun drenched chiefs style kitchen, and feel the vibe of the positive chi flowing energy as the crystal sun catchers bounce an array of rainbow coloured lights around the entire room.

Flick through the Foxtel channels and record the latest movies or favourite sport channels for later viewing, or browse through the extensive DVD library to see what’s on offer.

Time for some outdoor wilderness yoga or meditation on one of the three large private decks, a game of table tennis or simply lounge around on the double day beds and watch the wild life go by. However, don’t be alarmed if you are instead greeted by a low hovering, curious rescue helicopter above, just give them a wave and they will be on there way, its all normal given our location being just a very short distance, (100mtr) away from the entrance point of the famous bush walking tracks leading to the coastal walks, figure eight pools and wedding cake rock. You may even witness a chopper passing by hauling a large spa beneath on route for delivery to a neighbouring property… don’t panic, it’s all normal in this crazy town!

Take advantage of the north east facing aspect of the home. Follow the suns journey from the front to the back deck, embracing every moment this beautiful natural landscape has to offer. Spot a deer grassing in the back yard, or become a cheering spectator to a flock of cockatoo’s joining forces to protect their nest from bush forest predictors, usually taking on large goanna’s scaling up the tree trunks intent on raiding a juicy nest, turning the peaceful and calming surrounds into a tree top battle field, which can sometimes last for hours.

The floor to ceiling windows in every room offers ample opportunities to capture the stunning forest views and the ever-changing bush silhouette as the sun lights up and fades out the tree tops as it makes its way around to the west.

Load yourself up with your favourite cocktail, and make your way out to one of 3 separate back, upper/ lower entertaining decks/levels for a glorious sun set viewing. The bold red, pastel pink and dramatic orange tones sweeping the sky through and beyond the bush forest only further enhances the already breathtaking views.

Hungry… our chief style Frankie, 1200 gas cooktop, Teppanyaki hotplate with double oven, coupled with a double draw dish washer, makes light work to whip up a home cooked meal, or fire up the double grill, double hotplate barbeque for some serious grilling, making use of the extensive, external garden dinning table, and share a meal with family/ friends in a beautiful, relaxed group togetherness setting.

Brahmini’s recent backyard make over now offers guests yet another unique experience, under the stars. With 3 separate undercover gazebos housing a large screen 65inch TV with separate wifi to screen cast your favourite u tube tunes, Netflix for outdoor movie nights or other sports channels from your mobil phone, daybeds to read a book or capture the stunning Bush views surrounding you, fairy lights by night, and a extensive dinning table for large group gatherings outside.

As night falls, load up the esky with marsh mellows and beer, guitar under arm, light up the back gardens with our stunning display of fairy lights, and make your way down to one of two large fire pit areas, for a music jam or story time under the stars. (Always check fire restrictions before lighting up fire pits).

Finish the day with a glass of champagne and a bubble bath in our luxury oversized freestanding solid stone bath for two, or perhaps shower under the stars in one of our two external hot showers amongst nature.

Who said, “life is better at the beach”? with all the sweaty crowds, and hot sand… However, if it is the beach that you really want, then its only a 10min walk to Hordens or Jibbon beach and the ferry wharf, alternately, 2min by car.

If none of the above appeals to you, then you can always go bushwalking, 2min stroll to bush track entrance, kayaking from bonnie vale beach or take a 30min ferry trip to Cronulla beach for a variety of restaurants, shopping or take the train to Sydney CBD, 45min, 1hr 15min by car.

If it is beauty, space, and luxury comfort you are looking for then this life style home has it all, offering a peaceful, unique, relaxed, and comfortable environment in which to unwind, destress and make every moment about you!
