The Chalets run on 12-volt off the grid solar system which makes our property one of the very few true carbon neutral properties. Lumera Chalets is a true Eco retreat that aspires to carbon neutral principles.As we are off the grid and on solar power we supply you with a small inverter to charge your laptops and mobile phones etc...sorry no hair dryers.
Wildlife roam freely around Lumera Chalets and as we are wildlife carers and care for orphaned and injured wildlife you will have a chance to say g'day to our resident wallabies and wombats. (Inside of Chalet) click here
We recommend the Hilly's IGA opposite the Caltex service station for all your grocery needs, they stock freshly cooked free range chickens and pre-prepared salads. We find this is most preferred by guests as they can sit back and enjoy the amazing ocean views and abundant wildlife) The chalets are fully self contained and there is a communal bbq for guests use.
Alternatively the Historic St Marys Hotel has good quality country hotel/pub meals daily and there are several cafes including the famous Purple Possum Wholefoods and the Coachhouse. If you are prepared to travel we also recommend White Sands Estate at Four Mile Creek and there are several eateries in St Helens.
