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!"
