What better way to finish your multi day Mountain Bike or Hike on the stunning Old Ghost Road trail, than a warm recovery bath outside under the stars and a comfortable bed to kick back in!

Welcome to our latest Rimu. Now nestled in Seddonville among the outstanding scenery of the South Islands, Westcoast - where lush rainforest meets the rugged ocean.

This build complements the landscape with stone, copper & timber detailing.

We are all passionate about the great outdoors and Mountain Biking at Árbol. Here's Todd our Sales & Marketing manager enjoying the views of the trail a few years back. 

Floor to walls - all in weeks work at Árbol.


Toasty warm with plenty of TerraLana wool insulation.

LMA reclaimed Spotted Gum for the front gable - This hardwood is recovered from old power poles, bridges, and wharf beams in Australia, long since harvested, it's stood the test of time, and carries a 40 year life with limited maintenance required.

Fun fact: one power pole is enough to clad this entry area...and would you believe those are uPVC windows & doors? That's right, that's timber look foil!

Rimu floors, yes please!

Cinderella incinerating toilet - no water required, clean and efficient.

Copper taps, showerhead, and heated towel rails complete the look.

With no neighbors to be seen and only tranquil nature around, how about a see through, full height window in the shower - only on the Westcoast, right!

Picked up Tuesday, on piles by Thursday.
