Cottage Rental


Tree Spirit is a nature lovers paradise embodying the calm of the forest with the peace and tranquility of an off-the-grid solar powered farm.  If you would like to experience conscious living, working hand in hand with the elements and like being off the beaten track with some gravel roads then this is the place for you.  In return, you will truly get to be one with nature again where fast WIFI and TV is no longer important but the connection is better.   

At Tree Spirit we have different accommodation offerings to meet all your needs. So whether you are a couple, family with kids, extended family or group we’ve got you covered.  The cottages are located in a private, secluded corner of the farm over looking a beautiful dam so great views for everyone.

As a solar powered farm we aim to provide all the comforts of home, however it does require you to be conscious of what you do and when.  Therefore we ask for non essential electrical items to be kept to a minimum (phones and laptops not a problem) and showering is undertaken between 8am – 6pm alleviating the use of pumps out of daylight hours. 

Between the cottages there is a communal, central unique stone and mosaic BBQ area, including a large fireplace which can also be used for pizzas.  A fire pit also provides the perfect setting to enjoy alfresco dining on those summer nights under the stars.

Let’s take a closer look at the cottages that are fully equipped for self catering with all you would require in terms of crockery, cutlery, bed linen and towels.  Cleaning materials, tea/coffee/sugar is also provided.  Powered by solar and gas for hot water they are bright stylishly decorated in light tones.
