ECO Lodge Accommodation in Cairns
Villa Marine is an ECO lodge accommodation in Cairns that that utilizes sustainable living practices. It is surrounded by a natural rainforest on 2 sides. Waking up in the morning, looking out of the windows and sitting on your private patio is a treat. There are large Melaleuca trees, palms, and various rainforest trees.
The plants are a great home for a large variety of rainforest birds and animals, which make this place calm and serene for its guests. Butterflies such as the Ulysses and the Cairns Birdwing Butterfly are regularly seen from your accommodation patio.
Meanwhile, the beach is only 1 min from our doorstep. Very natural and undeveloped, without it’s usual tourist high rises. Always open for it’s relaxing walks and one of the most stunning sunsets you have seen.
We value our natural environment and take care of it. Here is a list of action steps Villa Marine Eco lodge has taken to reduce it’s impact on the environment. These are some of the ways we have tried to promote eco living here in Cairns:
– Solar power roof panels
– Solar hot water for showers and tap
– Heat reflective paint
– We utilize natural cooling via louvre windows and large verandas
– Green vegetation walls to shade the building for natural cooling
All these procedures have been put in place to reduce carbon emissions to protect the environment.
Neither do we employ chemical pest companies to spray our units as is the case in many hotels. We believe as we are in a rainforest environment the use of chemicals should be limited.
We follow a recycle program, recycling clean plastic and glass bottles, cardboard, paper etc., this is encouraged with our guests as well.
If you enjoy the rainforest, make sure to take a look at Skyrail Rainforest Cableway. It takes you on an amazing experience over Australia’s World Heritage listed Tropical Rainforest canopy and deep into the forest and is ECO certified.
