Wompoo Eco Retreat gets its name from the "Wompoo Fruit Dove", a beautiful dove with an amazing purple breast, green, yellow and white markings. This bird has a very unusual call. Listening to the Wompoo is like listening to a human conversation, but seemingly muted and far away. Our retreat is so named due to the presence of this lovely bird.
We provide our guests with good quality produce and where possible, source it locally. At Wompoo Eco Retreat we take advantage of our remoteness and lving "off the grid" by providing bird watching binoculars rather than a television.
Guests have access to a king size bed with quality linen, indoor/outdoor bathroom, private outdoor undercover self-catering facilities, fridge, handmade soap (Roselle Soaps - made on the property by your hosts), overhead and wall fans and limited WiFi (available on request).
The bungalows construction utilises rammed earth to ensure a cool interior and is designed to maximise views of the mountain ranges from the comfort of your bedroom and bathroom.
A significant area of the property has trees with discrete open spaces as well a tranquil spots to enjoy the flora and fauna. Further, there is a creek, meandering through Wompoo that ensures a welcome retreat for quieter contemplation.
We reduce our human foot-print with thought placed on how we live. The spring water on our property is from an artesian fracture, we generate our own solar power, but in times of high electricity demand, or little sun we may use the generator. It is because of the eco values of this area that we choose to live here and look forward to sharing this special place with you.
