Wyee’s Rainbows Reach, an eco retreat on the Central Coast that includes a barn style function space for weddings, a large cedar cabin for up to 30 guests, massage room, salt water pool and its own private island has been listed for sale with a guide of $1.6 million.
The fully solar powered acreage at 274 Toepfers Rd is completely off the grid, positioned on top of a ridge on an enormous 31 hectares in the Olney State Forest.
An outdoor claw foot bath tub is just another quirky edition to the property.
Pool and common area for guests.
Surrounded by forest.
Featuring a three quarter acre billabong with a bridge that leads to a tiny private island with palm trees, owner Barry Vaughan said that people regularly took a dip in the dam.
“It’s five metres deep and more popular than the pool,” he said.
Mr Vaughan and his wife Gillian created the retreat from scratch 23 year ago and are only selling to move closer to family.

Private massage room.
For sale with Shaun Coffey and Scott Wall of Capital One Lifestyle, the property features a country-style family homestead with an enormous main suite that includes a sauna, covered deck, ensuite and walk-in wardrobe.
The cedar guest cabin includes ten bedrooms, a kitchen, lounge and dining area and three bathrooms.
Guest common room.
Function centre with fire place.
The property is used by all types of groups.
The picturesque grounds are the perfect place for a secluded bush wedding, but also ideal for organised workshops or yoga retreats.
“We have a mothers group that comes every year – they bring their wine and a massage therapist and enjoy the time off,” Mr Vaughan said.
“We are right in the middle of the forest, you drive up and it’s like arriving in a different world.”
The accommodation lodge veranda is just 20 metres from the big function ‘barn’ room, which includes 122sqms of enclosed space, featuring a slow combustion fireplace, lighting and sound system.
In the garden there is a ‘sunroom’, another bathroom, a large gazebo with seating, wood fire pizza oven and barbecue, the 11 metre pool, all surrounded by beautiful lawns and gardens.
“It will be hard to sell after all this time, but we’re moving closer to our kids,” Mr Vaughan said.
