MOUNTAIN LODGE DETAILS Drive up to the top of the mountain for 3.5kms in an all-terrain vehicle (4WD) ... or walk. The road up the mountain is very rough so a 4 wheel drive and good driving skills are required to reach the pinnacle. Please bear in mind *all lifts too and from the car park is provided* by arrangement and is included in the price. This is off the beaten track, wild bush mountainous terrain, overlooking the ocean and a deep jungle valley below, surrounded by the Inner Pocket Nature Reserve. Experience a fully-equipped off-the-grid, hilltop jungle Safari 1/2 hour from Byron Bay and wake up to the Golden Sunrise over the vast ocean perched on top of a mountain, at the end of a most gorgeous valley there lies in a secret forest overlooking the majestic Pacific is called 'Kinabalu'. The abode of peace & tranquillity. Surrounded by a Rainforest Sanctuary & National Park, you have absolute privacy and one of the most extraordinary locations of the area and in Australia. If pristine walks into old-growth forest & wild beautiful nature or swimming in the waterfalls is your thing...this is it. This is both a lover's & NATURE LOVERS RETREAT. BEDROOMS In the Kyoto Lodge, there are two double bed bedrooms. The main suite occupies the whole top floor with its own lounge and bathroom attached. The lounge there can be made into a very comfortable bed for a single. Downstairs there is a double camping style foam mattress in front of the open fireplace. BATHROOM A shower & toilet is available here with another on it way. The shower is an outdoor garden type built into a tree trunk, or you may like to take an Epsom salt bath inside, in the old antique enamel bathtub. INTERNET You'll also enjoy full connectivity ADSL (very fast) internet, a large range of books, well equipped cooking facilities, a yoga deck, and a view that's hard to beat. PLEASE NOTE Be prepared as you would as if you are going camping. This accommodation is RUSTIC, SIMPLE & BOHEMIAN in nature, in a building that is not completely finished at this stage. THIS IS NOT 5 STAR accommodation, though we aim to please, there is still much to do. The photos reflect the attributes of the interior though garden area outside the Kyoto lodge is still very basic and unestablished, with some building materials stacked around the side at this stage, and no sealed pathways. ***Having full mobility is essential for your safety in this environment, and is not suitable for the elderly or young children without constant adult supervision.*** Please bear in mind that the terrain is wild and this is NOT an urban environment. Walking trails are bush tracks and to all intents and purposes must be considered a 'primitive campsite'. Be prepared as you would as if you are going camping. PLEASE NOTE Please note the facilities are rustic and simple in an unfinished building. To all intents and purposes this is still a BUILDING SITE. You enter this AT YOUR OWN RISK. Bring your food and comfort requirements, I suggest also an umbrella, a torch, and appropriate walking shoes not to mention some mosquito repellent. Also be aware this is a hand-built home constructed on top of a mountain in the middle of dense wild forest and mountain terrain. There are no concrete pathways, railings on decks, just natural bush tracks and a most welcome rustic charm. :) Please be prepared with the appropriate attire, wet weather gear and make sure you are fit enough to negotiate steep, uneven and sometimes slippery ground. TRANSPORT Bear in mind the location is on top of the mountain and the road is rough so all transport to and from the pickup point is provided if required. If additional transport is required to and from Byron Bay or the airport, a fee of $30 is required, or $50 from the airport. PETS It may be possible to bring your pet, please ask at time of booking. #kinabalu farm #treehouse #the Den #treepod #middlepocket #the pocket #More

All lifts to and from the car park and pick up area are provided free of charge by appointment. However to properly explore the area a car is recommended. Transport from Byron or the airport can be arranged at a cost of $50 from the airport and $40 from Byron Bay.
