Clarissa and Bruce have been living at Mt Rumney from 30th June 2011. They love the open space bush living, so they decided to share there experiences with others. In 2014 they moved a small relocatable cabin to the property and listed this with Airbnb.
From there, they realised that people from all around the world, absolutely loved the country space and animals In 2015, Clarissa lodged an Extension to Shed and this was approved. 2015 was all about planning and working towards a proposal to council for more tourist houses 2 and 3 Bedrooms, a caretakers house, office and entertainment house with gym and pool. Clarissa investigated, organised and prepared all the relevant documentation for lodgement to council.
Early 2016, Clarissa attended the council meeting and spoke and waited nervously for approval. Hooray, it happened, the planning process was complete and approved. Currently the extension to the Shed is being constructed.
We are currently going building and plumbing approval for the tourism houses. These houses will be off the grid, run by solar and battery backup and we harvest rain water from the roofs to water tanks. We have also taken into consideration Disability Access and Assisted Lighting. This project will be started in 2017
