/ night

Reconnect with nature at this unforgettable escape.
Nestled in the treetops in the heart of the Sunshine Coast hinterland on Gubbi Gubbi land, the Blak Shak is built on 2 1/2 acres of old pineapple farm land.

This luxury treehouse is only minutes from the popular town of Montville, which boasts quaint shops, cafes and sweeping views down to the coast.

The Blak Shak is the perfect getaway for couples or solo travellers. Fully self-contained, this brand-new, modern space offers a place to escape, surrounded by nature.

As you walk in the front door, you’ll be greeted with incredible views of the forest through the giant picture window. Listen to the beautiful birdsongs throughout the day or the chirp of the frogs at night. In the cooler months, curl up in front of the fireplace inside, or enjoy fireside chats around the outdoor firepit overlooking the valley. There is also a reverse-cycle air conditioner for quick heating or cooling.

Slide open the double barn doors to your bedroom with private deck overlooking the treetops. Relax in the queen bed with soft, bamboo/cotton sheets and feather duvet with linen cover on top of a comfortable memory foam mattress with feather topper. Gaze out to the treetops and enjoy a cuppa on your private deck overlooking the forest or fire up the Weber BBQ during your stay.

Breathe in the smell of the forest as you soak in the tub. The bathroom boasts a freestanding bath as well as a shower. Enjoy the beautiful aroma of the Aesop bath products, snuggle up in our bathrobes and feel free to use the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer during your stay. Enhance your experience with complimentary bath salts or immerse yourself in the simplicity of pure rain water.

Pull up a stool and hang out around the kitchen bench. As well as the usual kettle, toaster, coffee press and tea pot, the kitchen has a stow-away induction cooktop, integrated dishwasher and a bar fridge with ice. There is also a microwave / grill oven to warm up snacks or meals during your stay. (*Please note this is only a grill oven, not a traditional oven.) Help yourself to the Blak Shak’s kitchen garden with a variety of seasonal plants and herbs to add to your meal. Under shelf lighting helps illuminate your workspace while in the kitchen.

We strive to make the Blak Shak as ecologically friendly as possible. Cleaning and bathroom products are mindfully chosen to be environmentally friendly. We avoid single-use items and synthetic fragrances. Rain water is our sole water source (carbon filtered and UV treated) and we generate enough power through solar to power the treehouse most days. We are mindful of reducing our waste, providing easy-to-access recycling and compost bins and processing sewage onsite through a septic waste treatment system. We ask guests to please be mindful of our dedication to reducing environmental impact while staying in the Blak Shak.

Immerse yourself in nature at one of the many national parks, magical waterfalls and scenic trails or head to the beautiful beaches of the Sunshine Coast, less than a half hour drive away. Or, if you decide to just stay put in the Blak Shak, there’s plenty to do with books to browse, games to play or art supplies to create a masterpiece! Stretch into your favourite yoga poses and meditate on the provided yoga mats or go for a walk and explore our beautiful property. We’re sure you’ll enjoy the incredible Sunshine Coast while you’re here.
