This gorgeous house is built right in the boughs of the trees reconnecting you with tales like the Lord of the Rings and the Magic Faraway Tree. Take an adventure into this dreamy dwelling that's nestled in its own private stand of native trees. This quiet getaway is only a few minutes from the city, and based on our secluded 28 acre property. Breakfast items are also provided for you to prepare at your leisure, leaving you free to spend as much time as possible at this unique location.

The space
The house has a full kitchen with electric oven and gas cooktop, and all necessary utensils including toaster, jug, espresso coffee machine and fridge. Amenities include a heat pump for heating or cooling, a bluetooth speaker and a heated towel rail. The bedroom, bathroom (with separate bath and shower), kitchen and living are all on one level. While this treehouse is on our home property, it is secluded and private. The house does not have wifi, but does have good mobile phone coverage. The house has its own peaceful gardens perfect for sitting in quiet contemplation. The french doors from the lounge flow out on to an expansive deck where you can enjoy your morning coffee, listening to the native bird song. There are some games and books provided for your entertainment. Unfortunately, due to council regulations, guests are unable to access the mezzanine and top balcony and cannot use the fireplace.
