Indulge in your own private getaway. The perfect isolation choice, spacious Hermitage Estate is a safe sanctuary of pure peace.

As you glide through the custom wrought iron gates, and up the tree-lined driveway past the secret garden, the classic-contemporary atmosphere engages your senses and nourishes your soul.

With endless little places to discover, you will find your time here engaging and delightful. There is a pathway through the rain forest, an outdoor spa by the pond, a fairy-lit gazebo, and a lovely staircase through the olive grove.

Read a book in the cool rock garden grotto, or wander by the peaceful, mossy freshwater river, looking up at trees that are hundreds of years old. The Estate has so many secret spots to enjoy.

Hermes Estate riverside on the freshwater Never Never River

As an added bonus, the Estate is nestled into the fertile, mossy banks of the fresh, pristine Never Never River. As the Estate’s guest, you have 500m of private riverfront all to yourself.

A cool, canopied oasis, surrounded by lush rainforest, the river area is a true escape from the rest of the world. Absorb the sound of the water trickling over the smooth, cool rocks and feel your worries floating away with it.

As nature performs her gentle extraction of stress, replacing it with natural calm and wellbeing, you will absorb the peace and balance of the area. We must never separate ourselves completely from nature.
