We experience happiness as a series of pleasing moments…they come and go like clouds, unpredictable, fleeting, and without responsibility to our desires. Through honest self- work, reflection and meditation, we begin to string more of these moments together, creating a weblike design of happiness that drapes around our life. – Tara Styles
Heather has created some Japanese inspired, nature inspired “happy” spaces for guests to enjoy; to slow the pace and designed to develop a stronger connection to you.
A spectacular mountain retreat nestled in a tranquil, lush rainforest haven on top of Erskine Falls. A bushwalker’s paradise, this venue offers exclusivity and is ideal for a cosy romantic weekend away, an intimate wedding, a corporate retreat, small groups or a place to meditate.
Your stay at Qii house includes a gift wrapped welcome hamper, and bottle of wine on arrival ,seasonal local produce and coffee and tea facilities in the fully self-contained kitchen. Linen and individual travel spa hampers with a complimentary “Qii House” candle are all includes.
This original “quirky” architectural gem circa 1977 was built to specification by renowned architect Edgard Pirrotta of Melbourne and is of high local significance. Qii house has been beautifully restored by local artisans in a bespoke manner and melds with its landscape. It offers 4 spacious bedrooms (including 2 King beds housed in separate quarters), a log fire, 2 split systems, a bar and alfresco living; including a large elevated sunset deck; a garden Tea House/Meditation room and an eco Bath House.
Big enough for two, the bespoke bath is encased in bamboo with it’s lid embellished by a medallion depicting mermaids and fish, hand-made by artisans in Haiti from recycled oil drums. It is Heather’s favourite “sit-spot”. In the “hot tub” you can meditate, use eucalyptus oil, even have a glass of champagne, lay back and inhale the aromas of the forest and just be in the moment. A perfect way to engage all your senses. For those seeking a deeper connection with nature there is a kilometre rainforest walking circuit on the property.
Unwind and explore the unknown. Enjoy a relaxing retreat away from “business as usual” overlooking Japanese inspired gardens of simple beauty and an endless forest wilderness landscape.
The Qii house experience will ignite all your senses ensuring you leave feeling refreshed and energised!
