Children are welcome, though this is a working farm with an unfenced dam and wildlife so children must be supervised at all times and parents must accept the risks inherent when staying at a country property. Note: each cottage can only take a maximum of three occupants.
Child Guest Information
You can have one adult and two children or two adults and one child per cottage (maximum three people). An infant (under one year old) is free, but you need your own portable cot. This property is a farm with an unfenced dam, and wildlife on it, so children will have to be supervised at all times.
If you cancel a booking and give 21 day's notice, then there is a one-off administration charge of AUD100 which will be deducted from your deposit.
If you need to cancel a booking, or you decide to shorten a booking after arrival, and don't give 21 day's notice, then the full booking amount (minus an administration charge of AUD100) will only be refunded if they are able to re-book your cottage for the remaining dates originally booked. If they can't do this then the full booking amount will be charged.
What do you call cottages in the country that seem more like modern city apartments? Are they cottages, cabins, villas? None of these really do them justice so we'll call them 'pods.' They have everything you need to be self-sufficient (in a very luxurious manner), and are futuristic structures (that could have just beamed down from outer space) which still manage to blend in with the rural surrounds. Their off-black metalwork match the dark hues of the basalt Glass House Mountains , whilst their spotted gum chamfer boards blends-in with the surrounding bush. These really are stunning cottages with that Wow factor. They are conveniently located and make a great first or last stop for people flying in/out of Brisbane airport.
Their cottages are unique in many ways, but especially in their design:
There are two feature walls of floor-to-ceiling three metre high glass with spectacular Mountain views. This opens up the cottages to such an extent that you feel like you're part of the landscape. The design of the cottages quietly, unobtrusively and comfortably bring guests closer to the power of nature. Clutter is stripped away to emphasise elemental forces of fire, water, sky and earth. And then there's the freestanding double spa bath, mounted on a pedestal so it becomes the centrepiece of the bathroom (Cleopatra would certainly have approved of this), and the way it fills from a spout in dramatic fashion, like a waterfall. Bath time will never be the same again! For those cooler winter nights there's a beautiful eco-smart™ fire. This burns with a beautiful flickering blue flame and uses ethanol, which is made from a renewable resource (sugar cane) so is a very 'green' (no carbon emissions, no green house gasses). In these 'pods' it's been installed in the wall between the bathroom and the lounge, so you can experience it from the double spa or from the couch.
How To Get There
From south: Turn off the M1 (Bruce Highway) when you see a sign for the scenic route to Glasshouse Mountains and Beerwah (Scenic Route 24, Steve Irwin Way).
After four kilometres turn left into Beerburrum, go through it, and take the first road on the right (Beerburrum-Woodford Road). After about four kilometres there's a fork in the road, take the right hand fork (Old Gympie Road). Keep on this road for about two kilometres, and then take the first road on the left, Glasshouse-Woodford Road. Glass on Glasshouse is about two kilometres up this road, just after the Lookout Cafe. Proceed to the gate and ring the operator from there.
Reception is open 10am-9pm daily.
Because of the wildlife, including kangaroos, they cannot take pets.
Access Public Transport
There are trains from Brisbane to Glass House Mountains, and then they're a 5-minute taxi ride from there. Sunshine Coast Taxis or Back and White Taxi's. From the Gold Coast you can get a tourist coach to Australia Zoo, and then they're a 12-minute taxi ride from there.
Higher rates may apply during long weekends and peak periods and discounted rates may be offered for last minute bookings or longer stays.
