About our home


The Spring Hill “Enviro-Cottage” eco-pod is a standalone building in one of the greenest homes in the country (see 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, air-conditioned, standalone eco-pod is all yours. Your separate entrance leads into a sophisticated lounge (TV and media) room and kitchenette. A stunning air-conditioned 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.

Where is it?


The house is about as central as you can get in Brisbane. You can walk easily to the city centre (the main city shopping pedestrian mall and the business district), Fortitude Valley (entertainment central), the Brisbane River and Southbank Parklands. It is close to transport (buses at the top of the street and trains – central station is a 5 minute walk), shops, casual dining, parks, gymnasiums, bike and walking tracks. The suburb of Spring Hill is steeped in history as one of Brisbane’s oldest suburbs and the streets are full of quaint “Queenslander” style worker’s cottages. Isaac Street itself, although very central is remarkably quiet, with friendly neighbours, and you will often forget how close to the city and all the action you really are.
