The Roundhouses provide architect-designed eco-luxury accommodation in the Huon Valley, one hour south of Hobart.
The Roundhouses are made with natural materials including strawbale, timbers and lime render to ensure they are truly environmentally sustainable. Small fully equipped homes, they are cool in summer, warm in winter, and have stunning views down the valley towards Cygnet.
They are truly environmentally sustainable (not just the odd LED lightbulb or two!), using local and natural materials, local timbers, local artisans and minimal plastics. They have under-slab insulation, thick straw walls, double glazed windows, and the round shape all adds to the eco-design.
Architecturally designed, The Roundhouses achieved an exceptional energy rating, and just to make your mornings a little bit nicer, both houses have underfloor heating, so no cold feet in the mornings! You can sit in bed, operate the remote-controlled electric blinds and watch the morning sunrise. In the evenings, unwind with a glass of wine in front of the cute little log burner for toasty warm winters.
The Roundhouses are situated on a small hobby farm, and we aim to have no single use plastics, we recycle everything possible, and compost on site.
We limit our (and more importantly your) carbon use by providing most things from our local area: we provide no single use jams, butters or other items, we provide eggs made freshly on site by our friendly free-range chickens, wood from our own bushland, onsite re-use of jam jars.
We use Zero Co dishwashing and laundry cleaners, and line dry all our linens. Basically, we do everything we possibly can to limit our (and your) carbon footprint, whilst providing a luxury experience.
