Sunshine Coast Hinterland Ananda Eco House

Our retreats are hosted at a boutique eco friendly venue in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland - Ananda Eco House. This space is a truly unique rainforest retreat based on half an acre of dense rainforest. Anandā Eco House is eco friendly and as off grid as possible, hosting solar power, rain water and a composting toilet. The jungle setting attracts birds, wildlife and other bugs which all add to the experience. As much as you feel like you're entering an rainforest oasis, Anandā is only 800m from the centre of the historic town of Montville and only 5 minute drive to some of the coasts best waterfalls, making it easy to explore during your stay.
