The RETREAT

Shades of Blue Eco Retreat is a new holiday house perched on a hill with about 200 metres of absolute shell beach frontage and 15 acres of undulating land to explore.

The entire house is eco friendly. It’s powered by a stand alone Solar Powered System with a backup silenced generator. The house is supplied by pristine rainwater caught in various large rainwater tanks around the property. 

It is situated in a rural setting amongst the rolling hills of the Calca regional area, overlooking the Head of Baird Bay inlet on the beautiful Eyre Peninsula of South Australia.

HOUSE FEATURES

The holiday retreat has all you'll need to have a relaxing holiday with all the creature comforts you'd expect.

The centre of the open plan living area houses the fully equipped kitchen, boasting a large island bench with 8 leather swivel bar stools for taking advantage of the spectacular 180 degree views. The appliances include a stainless steel refrigerator and freezer with a water dispenser, a stainless steel dishwasher, a stainless steel microwave/convection wall oven, underbench gas oven and 4-burner gas cooktop with rangehood. Perfect for entertaining or for the theatrical cook.

The dining area is front and centre of the island bench, which can seat up to 12 people made up of two 6 person settings, which can be split to create more intimate dining. One 6 person dining setting can easily be moved to the western side of the room if preferred for either children or as a quieter dining area.

The western side of the living room comprises another seating area, which includes comfortable leather lounges complete with a well-stocked bookcase featuring a selection of books. Perfect for a reading nook or 'time out space', for contemplating the vista through the expansive glass windows.

The holiday retreat has a fully equipped laundry, including front loading 7kg washing machine, complimentary washing powder, plenty of outside washing line space, and in wet weather, a wall mounted dryer, spacious bench-top and deep laundry sink.

All towels, linen, bedding and extra pillows and blankets are provided. There are hair dryers in each of the bathroom vanity units, including the powder room alcove.

An ironing board and iron are available, together with clothes hanging rail and a folding hoist for smaller items.

A portable 4 in 1 cot, bassinet, baby change table and nappy organiser, together with a highchair are stored on the premises for use if requested.

At an optional extra cost, for in house dining, professional catering can be arranged for special occasions - breakfasts, lunches or dinners.

Outdoors, on each of the eastern and western decks is a 6 person dining setting. They can easily be brought together for seating a group of 12, or moved, to take advantage of whichever deck is more protected from any strong sea breezes.
