The home itself, has been developed to demonstrate the principles of sustainable housing and is occasionally opened to the public to inspire and educate. It has featured on TV and in newspapers and in many home and lifestyle and enviro-magazines. All appliances are water and energy efficient, the lights are all LEDs. The house proves that the resort style contemporary lifestyle often demanded does not have to be at the expense of our at risk environment. This is your chance to live the life of luxury while visiting, playing or working in Brisbane, and to see how sustainability feels and what it looks like.
Organic breakfast provided for all residents.
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.
The eco-pod is designed to be intimate and romantic, and light, open and airy - please check the photos. You may even catch glimpses of your partner in the shower while you're lazing around in the comfy king sized bed!! THERE ARE NO HEAVY BLOCK OUT CURTAINS OR BLINDS. Guests often embrace and indeed revel in this openness, as can be seen in reviews like these:

- "waking up to 180 degrees of natural light filtered through the external metal, geometric design was just magnificent"
- "waking up in the pod by birds and sunshine, behind the shades, it felt like a treehouse"
- "the view of the night sky upstairs made for a really peaceful night sleep"
- "we loved the lightness of the bedroom"
