Overview

About the property

Forrest Passive House is a new build self-contained 2 bedroom property situated in the wonderful township of Forrest in the beautiful Otway Ranges. Based on Passiv Haus construction principles with optimal environmental comfort as a focus we hope you’ll find your stay to be exhilarating, relaxing and rejuvenating in equal measures!

The house sits on ½ acre of land with plenty of lawn space and a large decked area overlooking fields and the friendly equine neighbours, for optimal outdoor relaxation. The house comfortably sleeps 4-5 guests and is built around a large central open plan living area with 6metre high ceilings giving the rooms a feeling of space, airiness and peace.

Located in the centre of the Forrest township on the Colac-Forrest Road we are ideally situated for hitting the Mountain Bike Trails - 5 mins drive from the start of the Yaugher trails and 5 mins cycle from the start of the Southern trails. And after a long day cycling, when a beer and a feed are required but you don’t feel like using the BBQ or well –equipped kitchen to prepare your own meal, both The Brewery and The Wonky Donky Hotel are just a short walk away.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

This excellent home is perfect in every way. My stay in Passive House was so relaxing and comfortable I found it difficult to leave the house to explore Forrest :) The house is beautifully designed to stay perfectly warm and cosy in winter. You will find absolutely everything you need in this very neat and tidy home as it is very well equipped with very clear instructions on how to use everything. It's in a quiet location and in walking distance to the general store and other Forrest attractions. I loved it and will definitely be booking this place again.

Fantastic Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've stayed at Passive House and second time we've loved it. The house is in such a lovely tranquil setting that even relaxing around the property is a treat. It's very well equipped even to the extent of toiletries should you forget any.

The location is perfect, whether you're going to the brewery for food and drink, or wanting to head off for a walk or bike ride.

We'll be back again and already looking forward to it.
