We Welcome You
Welcome to Chrysalis Hill, it is wonderful to have you with us. Chrysalis Hill was originally part of Mango Hill Farm up to a few years ago. The 2-acre property is nestled at the base of Mango Hill Farm, with a stream and bridge dividing the two properties. My name is Janine O’Donnell and I am the proud custodian of this beautiful property and I am looking forward to meeting you.
On the property you will find the main house, known as Butterfly House which now houses 3 main areas; 2 bedrooms self-contained unit; Bunk Bedroom and a separate 1 bedroom quarters connected to the main kitchen and lounge area. The heart of the property, we offer accommodation services self-contained or personalised.
The Cocoon, located less than 50 metres from The Butterfly House, is our Wellbeing Centre and a recent addition to the property. Providing services such as Salt Box, infra-red sauna, Therapy Rooms, office and workshop/workout area, The Cocoon is a unique space where learning, sharing and collaboration can take place. We use this area to run our Wellbeing Workshops and Signature Retreats.
Bali Hut, located south-west on the property is perfect for all uses from yoga classes to reading a book or high teas with friends and family. Positioned next to the stream and bridge to Mango Hill Farm, let the world race past you while you listen to the water gurgling and the trees rustling gently above you.
Surrounded by tall poplars and bamboo trees at the north-facing end of the property, the Fire Pit awaits you. Come armed with marshmallows and hot cocoa or a cool drink on a warm summer evening, and allow the flames of the fire to encapsulate you. Share a story, have a laugh or sing songs, the Fire Pit will welcome you with open arms.
I created this oasis in Peachester, as I was looking for a property which would support my own personal passions and allow me to share these with others. My own life experiences shaped me to have a love of yoga, meditation and healthy living. The unique elements on the property are designed to give you space for you to relax, find peace and if needed, seek solace and transformation.
Furthermore, as a registered Marriage Celebrant, I have been known to host and officiate small, intimate weddings on the premises. Only recently, I had the privilege of hosting my son's wedding with 50 close friends and family.
With PJ the King Charles Cavelier mix, we would love you to experience Chrysalis Hill. Bring your friends, your work colleagues, your family, your pets or just yourself. This is your space for transformation to take place.
Janine and PJ
