Taking eco-friendly accommodation to the extreme in Tasmania

A new holiday house on the north coast of Tasmania takes eco-friendly to a new level. 

Greens Beach Solar Home is an emission-free, totally off-grid, homestay. 

At first glance the two-bedroom property is a contemporary, architect-designed home. Yet its looks are eclipsed by its serious sustainability credential. 
The house has all the comforts, amenities and appliances of a modern home, but is completely self-sufficient for power, waste, and water.
"Greens Beach Solar Home is quite possibly the world's first modern all-electric, completely emission free, totally off-grid house," says architect and homeowner David Macfarlane. 
"It's a luxuriously-appointed, state-of-the-art solar-powered house which is naturally comfortable all year round – fresh and cool throughout summer, but warm and cosy in winter - without a wood fire, gas heater (or cooker), or back-up generator."
Guests at Greens Beach Solar home can enjoy the veranda at the rear of the property, while evenings see curious wallabies grazing on the front lawn. 

Inside the solar-powered home, there's a large master bedroom with a king-size bed and French doors opening onto the veranda. 
The fully equipped kitchen includes an induction glass cook top, convection/microwave oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, DeLonghi coffee machine, stainless steel cookware. 
The bathroom has a full-size bath that can be filled with piping hot Tasmanian rainwater from the tank on the property. The passive ventilation system circulates a constant supply of fresh air.
In-house entertainment options include a flat-screen TV/DVD player, a library of more than 200 DVDs, over 100 books, and fast, free wireless Internet. 
The house is just a few minutes' walk to Greens Beach, a quiet and sheltered swimming spot. There's also a nine-hole golf course, public tennis courts and access to a coastal trail through Narawntapu National Park.  The area is known for its native wildlife. 
Every booking at Greens Beach Solar Home includes early check-in (any time after 11am) and late check-out (until 4pm). Bookings for stays of seven nights or more attract a 10% discount plus a complimentary bottle of wine from the Tamar Valley, Tasmania's major wine-growing region.

  1. What sort of cookware material that fits on your cooktop? - If you use a conduction stovetop, some cookware surface cannot be used. cookware set
