This large, standalone eco-pod is all yours. King bed master suite, ensuite, lounge, separate entrance and plunge pool - all yours!!
Convenient. Luxury. Romance. Home away from home. Nothing in Brisbane compares.

The space

Included is the full “eco-pod”, in one of the greenest homes in Brisbane. Your separate entrance leads into a sophisticated lounge (TV and media) room and kitchenette. A stunning king bed master suite with views across Spring Hill and a beautiful master ensuite are on the second floor. Complementing this architecturally striking home is private access to your own intimate eco-plunge-pool; perfect for relaxing on those steamy Brisbane summer nights. The library shelves are packed with travel books, contemporary novels and family games. In the bathroom you will find luxurious Appelles products, which all use certified organic oils, and native Australian extracts. An Appelles oil burner also adds unique ambiance and a lovely touch of romance. The kitchenette includes fridge, microwave, organic tea/coffee, a toaster and if required, access to a BBQ. Any washing up gets done magically by the washing up fairy. All of this luxury and convenience less than one kilometre easy stroll to the city centre or the pumping nightlife of Fortitude Valley/Chinatown.

For guests 3 and/or 4 there is a fantastic sofa bed downstairs which converts into either a King bed for couples, or two king singles for the kids. The photos will help you understand how that works.

The home itself, has been developed to demonstrate the principles of sustainable housing and is occasionally opened to the public to inspire and educate. It has featured on TV and in newspapers and in many home and lifestyle and enviro-magazines. All appliances are water and energy efficient, the lights are all LEDs. The house proves that the resort style contemporary lifestyle often demanded does not have to be at the expense of our at risk environment. This is your chance to live the life of luxury while visiting, playing or working in Brisbane, and to see how sustainability feels and what it looks like.
Organic breakfast provided for all residents.

Guest access

Your “eco pod” is separated from the rest of the property by an open grassed courtyard. The main house has another three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen and dining (under a glass ceiling to allow you to dine under the stars!) and garage/laundry. The full property may be available if required and on request (additional pricing applies). Ask for details.

Interaction with guests

Your host is available for assistance and advice and will have as much or as little contact with you as you require, to help make your Brisbane accommodation choice the best decision you ever made.

Other things to note

The eco-pod is designed to be intimate and romantic, and light, open and airy - please check the photos. You may even catch glimpses of your partner in the shower while you're lazing around in the comfy king sized bed!! There are no heavy block out curtains or blinds. Guests often embrace and indeed revel in this openness, as can be seen in reviews like these:
- "waking up with the sunshine making patterns through the metal work is a magical experience"
- "waking up to 180 degrees of natural light filtered through the external metal, geometric design was just magnificent"
- "waking up in the pod by birds and sunshine, behind the shades, it felt like a treehouse"
- "the view of the night sky upstairs made for a really peaceful night sleep"
- "we loved the lightness of the bedroom"

The bed's exceptionally comfy too ;-):
- "probably the biggest and most comfortable bed in the world"
- "the bed is by far the most comfy we've slept in in Australia so far!"
- "the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in!"

Phil was great, very hospitable and wary of giving privacy. The unit is very stylish and luxurious. Good to feel like a local rather than stay in a hotel. Huge amounts of natural light.

We had a lovely time here - the house was a wonderful place to relax and rewind after exploring Brisbane. Beautifully designed, it felt like a real treat to come home too at the end of each day. The organic breakfast, chocolates, luxurious toiletries and even a ride down to the station all made it a top notch experience!

Its very obvious why this place has ALL 5 star reviews and why Phil is a SUPERHOST! The place is phenomenal. Its better than I expected in every way. The design is spectacular! Location, comfort, design.....I could go on......PERFECT. Not only is the place (URL HIDDEN) is Phil! He personally came to greet me and made me feel extremely welcome. The organic food in the fridge, amazing bread and tea's were the perfect touch to a perfect trip. I am grateful for having the opportunity to stay and will stay again when in Brisbane. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED :)

Amazing place. Quite beautiful and very clean. The host instructions are easy to find and the hosts are very accommodating and friendly. A quick Über to anywhere downtown as well although you can't tell while you're there! Downtown with a secluded feeling. We'd stay there again in a second.

Fantastic and stylish location. Pool was lovely and the feel of the place was divine. Can get a bit hot due to no aircon but there are plenty of fans.

Phil's place is amazing! We were welcomed with fresh bread, cheese and fruit which was a pleasant surprise. I loved the openness and architecture of the house and has one of the best bathrooms I think I have been in. The house is in a prime position and was close to everything I needed. Can't wait to stay again on my next visit to Brisbane!!!!

We had the most amazing time at Phil's place. The house is absolutely stunning and one of the most unique places we have ever stayed at. Nothing beats waking up in a super comfortable bed with the sun filtering through. It's so airy and tranquil, whilst in an unbeatable location. Thank you for having us, we can't wait to be back.
