Beautiful bamboo floors, ceasar stone kitchen benchtops and gorgeous furnishings make these a perect location to rekindle relationships, stimulate your creative energy or relax completely and rejuvenate.

Boom-Ber-Pee Private Nature Refuge
Identified as a significant environmental site due to its key location in the wildlife corridor and in the heart of the Koala Coast area, there is so much to enjoy.
In 2011 we established a covenant over the substantial part of the area and with the state government creating the Boom-Ber-Pee Private Nature Refuge. Here's what the state government had to say:
'Boom-ber-pee koala nature refuge will link with several existing protected areas, including Venman Bushland National Park, Cornubia Forest Nature Refuge and a number of Logan City Council reserves.The 18-hectare property is currently home to a multi award winning eco bed and breakfast retreat thatwill coexist with the nature refuge and local koalas. Containing remnant endangered and of concern regional ecosystems, the site will be a haven for koalas as well as glossy black cockatoos.'
Recognised with over 70 species of birds formally identified on the property, it is considered by birding enthusiasts as a great location for avitourism.
Our property is part of the 'Land for Wildlife' Program and is also part of the 'Koala Conservation' Program.
In March 2010 we were awarded a federal grant to further Koala habitat conservation on the property as well as planting 100's of trees in just one small area.
