OUR STORY

The property has been in the family for over 50 years, when Frans parents, made the tree change from Perth to Busselton in 1963. Over the years the land has been used to farm merino wool and as a horse pacing stud.

In 2008 with the help of family we planted 6000 Rosegum trees to start our tree farm. Each tree was individually planted and fertilized by hand. At 18 months the trees stood about 3 metres high; 5 years they were 15 metres and in 2019 at the age of 11 years they are towering at 25 metres tall. For the first 8 years, each tree had to be hand trimmed to remove lower branches. The plantation was also thinned out to remove trees that did not have the correct shape. All of this labour-intensive work could not have been done without the help of our family and friends.

As the trees grew and the sea of white trunks evolved, the idea that this vista was quite breathtaking and unique began to take form.  We then started on the design process of creating accommodation that focused on the view outside and balanced luxury with sustainability. And the concept of Tree Chalets grew from there.
