“We have just spent 10 days at Phils eco pod. Phil was a brilliant host. Responded to emails very promptly and made us feel very welcome. The pod is in a great location. Being just a five minute walk In different directions to China town, the city and the river. The pod is very open plan and light filled with a great little pool. There are no blinds on the bedroom windows and the bathroom is open to the bedroom. If you like your privacy and a lie in in the morning this may not be for you. However if you can be open minded and like to try staying somewhere a bit different do give this a go. Phil will make you feel very welcome. Thanks Phil for a great stay.”

About our home
POINTS STAYS PREFERRED.
The Spring Hill “Enviro-Cottage” eco-pod is a standalone building in one of the greenest homes in the country (see www.envirocottage.com.au). It is a quiet and romantic sanctuary which is less than a 1km leisurely stroll to the bustling city centre of Brisbane or the pumping contemporary nightlife of Fortitude Valley and Chinatown or the tourist drawcards and theatre district of Southbank.
The large, standalone eco-pod is all yours. Your separate entrance leads into a sophisticated lounge (TV and media) room and kitchenette. A stunning king bed master suite with views across Spring Hill and a beautiful master ensuite are on the second floor. Complementing this architecturally striking home is private access to your own intimate eco-plunge-pool; perfect for relaxing on those steamy Brisbane summer nights. The library shelves are packed with travel books, contemporary novels and family games. In the bathroom you will find luxurious Appelles products, which all use certified organic oils, and native Australian extracts. An Appelles oil burner also adds unique ambiance and a lovely touch of romance. All of this luxury and convenience within a one kilometre easy stroll to the city centre or the pumping nightlife of Fortitude Valley/Chinatown.
Your “eco pod” is separated from the rest of the property by an open grassed courtyard. We are likely to living in the main home and so are available for assistance and advice and will have as much or as little contact with you as you require, to help make your Brisbane accommodation choice the best decision you ever made.
The eco-pod has featured on TV and in newspapers and in many home and lifestyle and enviro-magazines. This is your chance to live the life of luxury, and see how sustainability feels and what it looks like, while savouring the delights of Australia’s most dynamic and growing city and within an easy drive to the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.
Convenience. Luxury. Romance. Home away from home. Nothing in Brisbane compares.
