Luxury Cottages on the Scenic Rim

FEATURES

Each cottage has a spacious living area with magnificent views of one or both of Mt. Beerwah and Mt. Coonowrin (the two grandest of the Glasshouse Mountains). The architect-designed cottages are surrounded on two sides by floor-to-ceiling glass walls to enhance your views, and give you a feeling of light and space.

There is also a deck where you can have a BBQ and admire the wild kangaroos, or watch the black cockatoos and listen to the laughter of the kookaburras.

For complete relaxation there’s a dramatically decadent freestanding double spa bath set on a plinth in the middle of the bathroom, and for those cool winter nights there’s a beautiful two-sided romantic eco-smart fire which can be experienced from the bathroom as well as the lounge.

For entertainment the cottages feature a flat-screen High Definition TV and Blu-Ray PS3 DVD player. There’s also an iPod dock and Bluetooth receiver if you want to listen to your own portable music through the whole-of-house sound system.

You can also count the millions of stars at night and just become closer to nature.

Bedroom: A comfortable King-size bed (or two singles if requested).

Kitchenette: If you feel like cooking there’s a microwave, fridge, Smeg hot plates, BBQ on the deck, and a dishwasher.

Extra People: There’s a sofa bed in the lounge (with extra charge for 3rd person).

Laundry: A washing machine and drying facilities are also available in a central area.

Breakfast: Tasty provisions are included in all packages (except the Stay 5 Pay 4), with fresh fruit, cereal, eggs, bacon, bread and home-made jam. Tea and an espresso machine with ground coffee are also provided.

Unfortunately, because there’s a lot of local wildlife pets aren’t allowed.

Please note that smoking is only allowed on the deck of the cottages.

ENVIRONMENT

Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat is situated on a property of 100 hectares (250 acres) bounded on three sides by Numinbah Nature Reserve. The Reserve forms part of the Central Eastern Rainforest Reserves Australia, an area of World Heritage significance. The rock escarpment of Mount Springbrook and the ridge to the north is the New South Wales state border with Queensland.

The World Heritage-listed rainforests of the Mount Warning volcano have evolved over 100 million years and are home to many rare and endangered plants and animal species. A romantic escape to Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat is a perfect excuse for exploring the biodiversity of this region.

Formerly part of a banana plantation, the property that is now Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat was purchased in 1988. Four years were spent planning, restoring and building the Retreat, which opened in 1992. The Voluntary Conservation Agreement on Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat was initiated by the land owners. Taking about one year to process, the agreement was signed in May 1997 and set aside 60 per cent of the 102-hectare property as a buffer to the adjacent nature reserve. The NPWS not only helped prepare a plan of management but, through Conservation Volunteers Australia, has also helped Crystal Creek attract voluntary labour for projects, provided project building material, and helped design and produce interpretive boards on the property.

From the Owners:

“We’ve been surrounded by pristine rainforest for many years now and we have to say: we’re deeply in love with it. With their long experience of the Retreat, our staff are a great source of knowledge about the fascinating eco-system that makes the Retreat so unique. Our guests soon value how important it is not to compromise a place that is one of the most special on earth.

In creating the Retreat we have been challenged by creating accommodation that’s right inside a subtropical forest, but which is also as comfortable as possible during your time together. This is why we’re always looking for ways to achieve this by using less energy, or by taking environmentally sympathetic measures. These include:

  • LCD televisions in all our bungalows (except Cedar Lodge and the Luxury Mountain View Lodges) use less electricity.
  • Our Guest Games Room is on stilts of galvanised iron drilled into bedrock. All our buildings are in fact elevated off the ground, so their physical footprint is absolutely minimised.
  • ‘Comfort Plus’ insulating glass is used throughout the Luxury Lodges to minimise heat transfer during hot days or cold nights, thus requiring less air conditioning.
  • Cedar Lodge uses a heat pump to warm its interior.
  • As a cleaning agent, disinfectant and anti-fungal product, we use diluted lemon myrtle oil. The pure oil itself is very powerful and can be heavily diluted. Unlike conventional chemical cleaners, it has a fresh, uplifting aroma.
  • We provide local pure lemon myrtle and macadamia oil soaps in the bungalows – they’re ‘almost good enough to eat’! Pure lemon myrtle oil is used in the ‘bath salts’ we make and provide for the guests.
  • We even have lemon myrtle trees around the Retreat if guests wish to use it for cooking!”
