Melliodora Studio available to rent

A unique opportunity to experience Melliodora by staying at the studio for a couple of nights or even a week. The Studio is available for this brief time only. It is a very modest, energy efficient, passive solar home that uses recycled and natural materials surrounded by a small productive home garden and is nestled at the bottom of Melliodora. Enjoy lots of walks to the Blowhole, Hepburn pool and Spring Creek. Enjoy the goats and the geese. Some Melliodora produce will be available and the weekly veggie box scheme (Wednesdays) can feed a family of 4 or 5 for just $35. Some bulk dry goods are also available then.
