ABOUT YOUR HOSTS
Jodie Williams & Brett Gowley
With more than 100 years and six generations of history in the Sunshine Coast, Noosa Shire “local” Chef, Jodie Williams and her partner, Brett Gowley made the move to Kin Kin in 2009 and established Mayan Farm.
In 2012 they began work on restoring the local Kin Kin General Store – which had been idle for many years – to accommodate their growing business and offer services to the local community, including a general store and post office.
They recently sold their Black Ant Gourmet business to focus on building further sustainable, luxury accommodation along Kin Kin Creek at Mayan Farm.
Constructed from rammed earth
Mayan Luxe Villas is constructed with rammed earth from Mayan Farm. This construction technique has been around for thousands of years and makes up long stretches of the Great Wall of China, the magnificent Kasbahs of Morocco and the enchanting Alhambra in Spain.
Increasingly seen in contemporary architecture, rammed earth is a sustainable building material due to its thermal mass, strength, durability and visual impressiveness. Rammed-earth houses have a natural warmth and beauty that help them blend with their surrounding land and natural environment.
Brett constructed the Mayan Luxe Villa’s rammed-earth walls on-site by ramming an aggregate mixture, including gravel, sand, silt and clay – otherwise known as “between formwork”. After removing the formwork, the stunning effect of the rammed-earth walls was revealed.
