ECOPIA RETREAT

Eco Villas on Kangaroo Island
FEATURES

There are just two luxuriously appointed rammed earth villas, each graced by sweeping panoramic views of the natural surroundings and carefully sited to provide guests with an intimate, private experience

Each villa is stunningly crafted from rammed earth, and appointed with a luxurious king-size bed, and a freestanding bath. A contemporary open plan design boasting double glazed full height windows throughout, Spotted Gum floors and a charming log wood fireplace gives guests a truly unique eco-luxe immersive stay.

Combining eco-luxury with a quintessential Kangaroo Island nature experience. Meticulous attention to the design of the rammed earth villas has made it possible to achieve the softest footprint achievable when it comes to luxury off-grid living. Warmth in the winter, coolness in the summer is harnessed within the surrounds of the monolithic 300mm thick rammed earth walls, while the full height double glazed windows bring the outside in.

Accessibility
The owners believe in being inclusive, so the Ecopia Retreat Villas were designed with accessibility features in mind. Villa accessible features include:

Boardwalk from the car park to deck surrounding the Villa
Deck surrounding the Villa is at the same level as the interior
The Villa interior is single leveled and very spacious
The contemporary minimalistic interior design and furnishing allow easy access and maneuverability inside the Villa
The spacious bathroom has a flat floor, and features a wide, open shower (1000mm), and a raised toilet seat
*Please note that the entrance to the Villa is via a double glazed glass sliding door.

 

ACTIVITIES

Besides the iconic natural attractions, Kangaroo Island or KI as locals call it, also boasts a number of boutique wineries, marron, honey and lavender farms, adventure tourism opportunities, great fishing and surfing, numerous galleries, and a wide range of restaurants.

Ecopia Retreat property boasts plenty of natural wonders, including a natural habitat of the endangered Glossy Black Cockatoos! Spotting them or even finding a feather is quite special!
