A destination for lovers of nature, architecture and romance.
Set on a beautiful elevation on the sprawling 18-hectare property of Breakneck Gorge, and just minutes from the main street of Daylesford, Oikos was designed as an indulgent retreat.
The multi-award-winning Oikos is a sculptural creation that both complements and disappears into the rugged precipices on which it perches.
The extraordinary external angles enhance a dramatic, open-plan interior. Inside, smartly designed spaces with staggering outlooks are, from every angle, framed by breathtaking picture windows peeking out onto gum trees.
The power of these remarkable outlooks reveals itself in the stunning bedroom, with two huge windows tempting you to leave the blinds open and sleep in starlight.
A jaw-dropping bathroom is dominated by an egg-like, black cast concrete bathtub, it’s perfect for soaking away your cares.
One of two luxury accommodations at Breakneck Gorge, Oikos is strategically located so that its windowless, rock-like rear façade ensures privacy. Design and nature coincide seamlessly so that the only company you are likely to encounter at this astounding retreat are the mobs of kangaroos that graze and laze in easy view.
Named Oikos (pronounced eekos) after the Greek word for dwelling this thrilling retreat was designed and built as a place for love, laughter and peace.
