Little House Republic offers a unique and sustainable off-grid experience that will nourish your soul. Their luxury retreats are nestled in the serene Scott River peppermint trees on 750 hectares of private property, providing the perfect getaway for those seeking to connect with nature in style.
Little House Republic's architecturally designed 'little houses' exemplify sustainable tourism, displaying how you can make a lighter impact while travelling. Powered by solar energy and rainwater, each property is thoughtfully designed to immerse you in nature from the moment you arrive.
 
Accessed via private driveways on unspoiled active pastoral land that has seen only family for over 130 years,  you will feel like you are worlds away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. 

Vern’s Ridge is nestled above an historic, abandoned farmhouse and thoughtfully designed with all the creature comforts you could want. Large picture windows connect you to the outside throughout the property creating the sensation of sleeping and living in the trees. Snuggled on the bed, sundowners on the deck or wrapped in a blanket toasting marshmallows around the outside firepit, you have front row seats to nature's show. 

The Slip Rails is lodged in the middle of two hillocks surrounded by peppermint trees and undulating hills and valleys. The romance of the Australian stock routes is imprinted into this site, where generations of stockmen boiled the billy before droving the cattle through the slip rail fence on their way home to Nannup after a long summer of grazing. Imagine yourself cosied up on the window seat, lost in a good book while the indoor wood fire crackles and the distant wild Southern Ocean roars in the background. 

Both properties are furnished with design-led, sustainable amenities and fixtures, such as natural linen bedding, recycled wool blankets, and an Ocean Cycle-certified Ecosa mattress made from recycled plastic bottles collected from the ocean. 

Whether it's a hike to the private beach, exploring nearby national parks and wineries, or simply relaxing with a good book,  you are invited to experience sustainable luxury in the heart of nature.  

Little House Republic has a strong commitment to making a positive impact on the environment and local communities. As part of this, they aim to encourage responsible travel among their guests by providing them with a travel calculator. This tool allows guests to measure the carbon footprint of their journey to Little House Republic and purchase offsets to support Western Australian landscape restoration and conservation projects.  To achieve this goal, Little House Republic has partnered with Carbon Positive Australia. By working together, they hope to create a more sustainable and eco-friendly future.

This is a stay for your soul. So quiet, peaceful, and you feel like the last people on earth out here. The team has curated a beautiful space, free of devices and distractions, with everything thought of with as little impact on the environment as possible. We roamed some of the property, walked about 4km down to our own private beach (not a beach you would swim/surf at because it is just so remote, but beautiful to just look at) on a walk that was well signed. Bring your own groceries/food for the duration of your stay as the property is quite a drive (40 mins or so) from any convenience stores etc and you want to spend as much time there as possible. We stayed for two nights as the trip was a birthday gift. Kate was incredible in accommodating us, arranging the birthday voucher from my friends, and clearly has put a lot of heart, thought, and love into this amazing project/eco-stay. There is very little to do out here (which is what we wanted) unless you are prepared to drive to other parts of the region and then there is plenty to explore (again, about 40mins - 1 hour away). We stayed here at the end of a road trip so we were very content to do not much for two days and just read, play cards, walk, and sleep. I had the best sleeps ever - you will not want to leave. There is limited reception too, so if you want to watch movies on your devices, download them beforehand. But I recommend you take the opportunity to disconnect, enjoy nature, and whatever company you may have, be that another person, the birds, or the kangaroos hopping around! Thanks again to Kate & the team for the great stay and excellent customer service from beginning to end.

We are so lucky to have found this stunning oasis surrounded by nature to switch off completely. Keryn was so lovely & ensured our stay was seemless. Extremely clean even though we were immersed in nature, beds were like floating on a cloud ☁️ Waking up to kookaburra’s instead of traffic was so lovely 🥰 I have sensitive skin so I loved the complimentary eco friendly products. We loved going out to lunch at Glenarty Road’s restaurant & visiting a few wineries on our way back to our oasis 🤗Thank you & we have already booked to come back again in April ❤️
