The space
THE NATURAL SETTING: Our 27 acre property is located at the end of a quiet raised valley and provides the perfect private getaway. We are located 5 minutes west of the thriving hinterland community of Cooroy.

The 60m² studio itself is situated on a our magical ridgetop haven, where you will reside amongst the old-growth eucalyptus forest, regenerating rainforest and its inhabitants. There are spectacular views every way you look, including the most prominent view of Mt. Cooroy (as pictured). High ceilings and many glass windows and doors will help you appreciate this beauty wherever you choose to sit.

Karmya Cabin is a true nature-lovers retreat. It is private and wildlife abounds. While the old growth forest is along the ridge, elsewhere on the property the wildlife habitat has been extended over the years by the planting of more than 5,000 trees. Feel free to wander around and see for yourself! There is a track along the ridge (approx. 600m round trip) for you to enjoy at your leisure and take in the magic. You are likely to encounter foraging wallabies, butterflies, dozens of bird species...maybe even a goanna or echidna!

YOUR ACCOMMODATION: We have put all our love into this studio to make it as warm, welcoming, comfortable, relaxing and intimate as possible. We always try to leave a light footprint on the Earth and Karmya Cabin is no exception. Approximately 95% of all items you will find in and around the place have been sourced from second-hand retailers or made from recycled and/or eco-friendly materials. Always local wherever possible. The electricity is sourced from solar panels on the shed, water is pure rainwater collected from the shed roof and septic is bio-cycle, processed onsite. For your comfort the bedroom does have a reverse cycle aircon in the rare event that you should require it and the main living space has a fan for some of our hotter summer days. There is a lovely fireplace for you to enjoy using wood from trees and branches we have collected/chopped after they have fallen naturally on the property - a super eco-friendly way to keep toasty!

The kitchen has everything you need for your stay should you wish to fully self-cater. If you are a coffee fan, there is a deluxe manual coffee brewing system in the pantry - and we provide our favourite local, certified organic, fairtrade coffee for your brewing pleasure. If you're more of a tea-lover, there is also a small tea pot with lovely local loose leaf teas provided (or ordinary bags as well). Depending on the season, we may be able to provide you with our own mangoes, avocados, lemons, limes, mandarins, chilies, kaffir limes and some fresh herbs. A small welcome basket of local goodies will greet you (but please inform us of any dietary restrictions/allergies so we can best cater to you).

Your Queen Bed is a high quality mattress, made up with luxurious bamboo/cotton blend linen and bamboo, hypo-allergenic doona. Of your four pillows, there are two "firm" and two "medium/soft" for your comfort. Your bathrobes are 100% bamboo and your towels are Egyptian Cotton and certified Oeko-Tex (eco-friendly and free from harmful substances).

There is a reading nook with comfy, retro La-Z-Boy recliner chairs and a stocked bookshelf with books to borrow, cards or a chess game to play as well as meditative colouring books with pencils. If you simply can't get by without a bit of media, there is a Bluetooth soundbar as well as a TV with free to air channels, however we encourage you to unplug, unwind and reconnect with each other and nature.

EXTRA SERVICES AVAILABLE:

- FULL BODY MASSAGE: Casey's healing space is set up in the small studio beside your cabin. This space is designed exclusively for Karmya Cabin guests, so there will never be other clients onsite during your stay. She is fully qualified to provide you with an integrated whole body massage, applying as much or as little pressure as requested. Casey can also incorporate a sound bath experience and guided meditation into the treatment on request. While it is possible to request a booking on the day, it is best to book ahead to ensure she is available. Please see below for offerings.
Karmya Light (2 x 30min each): $75
Karmya Body 60min: $70 (or 2 for $130)
Karmya Complete 75min: $80 (or 2 for $150)

- BREAKFAST BASKETS: We can provide a variety of breakfast baskets and food hampers. Ask for details with your booking, we have too many to list here! You will find a pic of the Breakfast Basket menu in the listing photos.

THE SURROUNDS: Karmya Cabin is a 5 minute drive Cooroy where you will find eateries, coffee shops, an award winning IGA supermarket, the old Butter Factory (now an art gallery and gift store), op-shops, historic walking trails and one of the Noosa Botanic Gardens. It’s a 10 minute drive to the world famous Eumundi markets which are held Wednesdays and Saturdays. Noosaville and it's riverside restaurants and shops are only 15-20 minutes, with Noosa Heads only 5-10 minutes further. Pomona, to our north (where King of the Mountain is held each year) and Cooran are also worth exploring. We have plenty of recommendations and will leave a Guest Folder on the coffee table for your perusal (that is, if you want to leave at all!). Of course you can also just ask us - we're happy to share!

*Please note that this property is in a forest setting and as such, amongst the other magnificent flora/fauna it is possible that you may come across spiders/webs, ants, midgies, mozzies etc. We will provide outdoor mosquito coils as well as a natural insect repellent for your use, although not always necessary (dependent on season and weather). We have occasional snake sightings, however, an encounter is unlikely.*

And yes, we are gay-friendly, straight-friendly, questioning-friendly, age-gap-love friendly, trans-friendly...just all around friendly! :)

Jodie and I are passionate about sharing our beautiful property with others and providing the opportunity to simply relax, rejuvenate and reconnect with each other and nature. Casey is a qualified massage therapist and meditation teacher who can provide both massages and guided meditations to your stay. We are always trying to learn more about being kind to the Earth, and have tried to implement as much of this as possible into our own lives and Karmya Cabin. As a same-sex couple with an age difference, we are completely non-judgmental, open and accepting to all. I can speak decent Spanish and enjoy practicing, so if you prefer to communicate in Spanish, I will do my best to accommodate :) NB: Prior to our move over here from Perth, Mike and Leena (previous property owners) hosted this Airbnb on our behalf. We have since upgraded and refurnished and are excited to share this magical space with you!
