We have 8 treehouses/huts (the Top and Bottom Peacock, the Screen Hut, Elmo’s, the Bamboo Hut, the Honeymoon Hut, the Pool Hut, and the Dragons Lair), 3 enclosed rooms (the Mushroom, the Turtle, and the Sky Room), and a two story bunk house called the Corral on top and the Palapa on bottom. The bunk house, the rooms and all of the treehouses have power with the exception of the Screen Hut and the Dragon’s Lair, although each of those have plenty of candles for evening light. Each of the Peacock Huts have 3 single beds. Every other hut and room has a double bed, and some of them have extra mattress’. The Palapa sleeps 12 and the Coral sleeps 4, with the rest of the space upstairs being dedicated to an art room. You can check out the photo page for pictures. We can never guarantee a specific tree house, but if you have a favorite, just ask to see if it’s available when you check in.
We have 3 outdoor showers with steaming hot water. These showers drain directly onto the forest floor, so we ask all of our guests to use the Dr. Bronner’s Organic Soaps that we provide for a more ecologically sound showering experience.
We offer food storage space in a communal area that includes a refrigerator/freezer as well as a full kitchen that you are welcome to use anytime that we’re not cooking dinner. We also provide a grand array of spices, herbs, and teas, as well as organic fairtrade coffee each morning.
We strive to live as ecologically sustainable as possible by encouraging conservation of electricity, minimal water usage of our local well, recycling 80%+ of our refuse, and using the saw dust composting toilet method designed by Joseph Jenkins in the Humanure Handbook. Unfortunatly, we are not well adapted for handicap accessibility due to rough forest trails, stairs, and our rustic environment. But if you are adventurous, we will make every possible effort to accomodate any special needs.
But please, if you reserve a room, you must call the day before to confirm your reservation, otherwise please cancel as soon as you are aware of the need to do so. Contact the Hostel at 912.264.9738. There have been an abundance of no-shows lately, and it impacts othes that would like to visit.
