Our cottages are spacious and provide all the essentials for a comfortable stay, with peace and quiet, and free use of all the recreational and sporting facilities, as well as enjoying a rural experience.
All cottages are family friendly, but couples can enjoy a quiet retreat, as all of our cottages are private with their own rural aspect. Kalaru Lodge has 9 hectares with farm and native flora and fauna, complimented by the abundant native birdlife.
Our property is eco-friendly for several reasons:
Water is supplied from our own rainwater tanks (60,000 gallons in total) and each cottage has its own tank (water is filtered before entering each cottage).
Self sufficient effluent system using modern septic tanks, natural reed beds and rowan trenches with overflow distributed to areas of native flower, farm and other vegetated areas.
Careful use of property catchment for dam water which is stored and then recycled for gardens and irrigation.
Well vegetated areas with native shrubs and trees, with several acres of undisturbed native trees with abundant birdlife and fauna. There are plans for further plantings of trees and native shrubs.
Cottages are very well insulated and architecturally designed so that air conditioning units are not required. Energy efficient light bulbs are used throughout and power is also saved by the efficient use of gas hot water, cooking and heating, and there are no leaking taps. Power is therefore cut to a minimum and the feasibility of using solar generated power for other needs is being investigated. The pool is solar heated and the tennis lights are Environ Halide (low use of power and environmentally friendly).
