✨Immerse yourself in a Tropical Oasis. Fresh air, clean country living, wide open spaces, perfect for a relaxing time away!✨

Welcome to the enchanted Crystal Cottage Retreat, located at the foothills of the scenic Tamborine Mountains. The beautiful property creek is the flow on from Witches Falls.

Allow yourself to be transported to a magical sanctuary, to escape the hustle & bustle of everyday life to reconnect and recharge, while fully immersed in nature. Full-sized house accommodation ✨

The space
This beautifully spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage is nestled on 4 acres of lush green, flower filled gardens and tropical rainforest.

The property boasts amazing mountain views, a meandering idyllic seasonal stream that runs through the property, and an abundance of wildlife including; kangaroos, possums, butterflies, king parrots and owls.
Imagine each morning waking to a chorus of birds sharing their birdsong.
Between the cottages lies a picturesque pond, filled with the healing sounds of frogs chirping into the night.
We also have two horses, Trixie and Rusty in the lower paddock across the stream and 4 lions (curious cats) who wander freely around the property.
You can often spot the paragliders peacefully drifting down from the top of the mountain, landing just behind our rear paddock.

There is plenty of space for outdoor activities during the day, like taking a dip in the sparkling in ground pool in the warmer months, a picnic by the seasonal stream or stargazing in the evening.

Our sun filled, airy cottage is full of home comforts. It is a well appointed residence that is away from the other house so that guests can enjoy their own space and privacy.

Hi! My name is Kristy & I host Crystal Cottage Retreat & Kosmo’s Studio :-) I moved to the beautiful Hinterland to escape urban development and relax in wonderful nature! I don’t regret it for a second. I love nothing more than welcoming people to this enchanting property, where you can retreat from the rest of the world in peace and harmony. There are so many amazing spots for you to chill out here, lots of animals to engage with, you’ll be sure to hear many birds and frogs singing their harmonies. You may want to meditate by the running stream, swim in the pool, watch dragonflies by the pond, or enjoy a wine in your private spacious cottage. I am very easy-going and my priority is always on providing you with the best possible environment to relax. I would love to welcome you here and will talk to you soon!
