Live the Sustainable Margaret River Life
Since we took the reigns at Kilifi in late 2016, we've been on a mission to reduce our carbon footprint and become a sustainable accommodation provider, while increasing the comfort levels of our guests.
We started by draught proofing and insulating the house, installing LED lighting throughout, and ensuring our firewood was sourced from sustainable FSC plantations.
In September 2018, we swapped out our electric storage hot water system for a way more efficient and smarter heat pump.
During our major renovation of our managers residence in August 2018, we reduced our reliance on fossil fuels by changing our energy source in the kitchen to electric.
In March 2019, we installed a complete renewable energy system to generate and supply both the beach house and managers residence. This solar and battery system supplies enough electricity to ensure Kilifi has a net zero emission electricity supply.
But we didn't stop there.....
In May 2019, we installed a Tesla Destination Electric Vehicle charger available for guest use at no extra charge, positioning Kilifi Beach House as the first holiday accommodation on the Margaret River coast to offer EV charging facilities.
