Relax, rediscover and reconnect; these three words are at the core of what CABN is all about. If you ever feel overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of the day to day, CABN aims to get you back in touch with what’s most important – the environment and the people in it. This is why CABN have created sustainable, minimalist, eco-friendly retreats that respect the local environment and offer the perfect digital detox. Located in South Australia and Victoria, CABN’s tiny homes are all individually designed to suit the surrounding landscapes and are built using as much locally sourced materials as possible. Be immersed in the natural world around you by yourself, with a small group or with your furry friend (in certain tiny homes) and as CABN say, ‘enjoy the location with your senses, not through your lenses.’
