A small fridge is provided for you to refrigerate some foods.


The retreat is fully solar powered so please be mindful of your energy consumption. The solar panels charge the batteries and if power is used excessively the batteries can run down resulting with no power or water pumping. We recommend turning off lights when not in use and avoid plugging in appliances or large device chargers such as laptops, hair dryers and straighteners as they also consume a large amount of power.
