My Green Butler
Luxury eco cottages in Kangaroo Valley, in the Southern Highlands and South Coast region of NSW, just 2 hours from Sydney and Canberra
To ensure you have the perfect country escape we provide our My Green Butler service at our luxury eco cottages in Kangaroo Valley, NSW. It is a smart system which gives you today’s weather forecast, suggested activities suitable for the weather and recommends eco-friendly ways to keep cool or warm in your cottage for a more comfortable, restful stay. My Green Butler is your very own personal digital advisor customised to your holiday desires. Its green advice and feedback helps you tread lighter. And being a discrete service offering local advice, it is just like a butler should be. All the money saved by reducing energy and water goes directly to helping conserve our brush-tailed rock-wallabies and look after injured and orphaned wombats. Not surprisingly we find guests feel more relaxed and happy knowing their holiday makes a positive difference to Kangaroo Valley. My Green Butler’s success means we now share our invention with many other hotels, retreats and eco cabins around the world so tourism can make a positive contribution to nature.

“Lovely and rewarding getaway for our little family. It was an absolute pleasure to enjoy a hidden gem just 5 minutes from the Kangaroo Valley village and its public pool. The fruit trees and the walk in the garden were a fabulous surprise to the already touching and caring service delivered by our kind hosts with ground-to-earth values. The green spirit (challenge) was inspiring to agreeably question our everyday lifestyle and overconsumption model.”
