Terra Rosa Haven is a charming house hand-made from earth, wood and leadlight glass. Featuring 2 bathrooms and 3 queen sized bedrooms, the property sleeps up to 6 guests and comprises an inviting living area with beautiful, high exposed wooden beams.
Immersed in the great southern region of Western Australia, Terra Rosa Haven is an ode to slower living in the midst of nature, a world away from the hustle of the city.
Set on a 5 acre native bush block abundant in wild flowers, it is a place to truly slow down & breathe.
Terra Rosa Haven is a very unique, organic and natural holiday home where we make every effort to reduce our impact on the environment.
The main bedroom, complete with a cosy ensuite bathroom, looks out onto established evergreen citrus trees mingling into native bush.
The second bedroom, also with a large garden outlook, is bordered with a seasonal grapevine & an English Wisteria climber.
At the end of the wide castle-like hallway, a cosy sitting room includes a single mattress day bed. Here, a rustic handcrafted staircase made from recycled timbers, leads up to the spacious mezzanine loft bedroom where a Juliette balcony offers a view of the surrounding garden & bush from above.
The main bathroom, situated opposite the second bedroom, features a walk in shower & an antique clawfoot bath looking into a private small courtyard garden with a view over the wall to the tree tops.
Another option for bathing is to take a soak in the outdoor bath tub looking out to the forest and up to the southern night sky. All water for use on the property is rainwater.
In the spacious main living area you’ll have views into the garden and the forest. Guests can enjoy gathering together around the large dining table, getting comfy on the antique club lounge sofa or warming themselves by the big cosy wood fire place. Whether rain or shine, an undercover day bed on the veranda is the perfect place to sit back and plan the day with a cup of tea or coffee.
With ancient ways of building, thick earth brick walls keep temperature fluctuations to a minimum. The walls ‘breathe’ so they counteract humidity, and naturally maintain a stable internal temperature throughout the seasons and reducing the need for power-based heating and cooling, perfectly providing excellent protection from extremes in the Australian climate.
We are a part of the forest around us & therefore Terra Rosa Haven is a home not only for us but for many wilderness inhabitants too.
You may encounter some frogs, lizards, insects, birds, spiders & their webs, bats, ants, bees, even small native marsupials & possibly snakes depending on the season.
Denmark has great wines, cheeses, gourmet health foods & other local deliciousness for you to cook up a storm. The well equipped kitchen comes with a 6 burner gas stove top & wide oven, a large fridge and a dishwasher. Also a back patio offers a spacious undercover area with a BBQ and a number of garden dining options to soak up the forest and southern night sky.
Book a stay, find a semblance of balance for yourself and embrace Terra Rosa’s coexistence with the natural world.
An ideal haven for people wishing to get away from the fast pace and enjoy the beautiful and simple life as a family or romantic weekend for 2. As a guest you will have exclusive access to the whole house, garden and the 5 acres of Jarrah and Marri bush on the property (wild flowers in season).
