WE ARE NO LONGER OPERATING AS OF 1ST SEPTEMBER 2021 - thank you to all those who supported us
Free Respite for those in need
Aisha at Beechworth is owned and operated by us - Adam Ruitenberg and Bronwyn Wilmot , along with our 3 children shown here Jarni, Layali and Poppi. These are also our fur babies so we understand that you too may wish to travel with your dogs (see rates page for details).
Aisha is a word meaning life and living which is exactly what we want people to do here - to truly feel alive.
The cottage is a flow on from our yoga business Aisha Flow Yoga (Albury based) where we have a strong belief in creating environments and experiences for people to feel great. Our life is blessed and so generosity is a strong focus for us. At Aisha Flow Yoga (www.aishaflowyoga.com) we give all profits to charity or people / causes in need and it is our desire to continue this ethos with Aisha at Beechworth.
Our aim is to provide you with a warm and cosy place to stay while you experience the joys of the local region. In addition to this we wish to offer the cottage as a place of respite for those most in need. This includes full time carers in need of a break, those experiencing hardship, or anyone recovering from an illness. We offer as many free respite packages as we can each year from nominations received. To nominate someone just drop us a line with a brief as to why you think they need respite and also their contact details our follow our facebook page to be notified of when packages are being offered
YOU CAN HELP us help others by staying at the cottage , contributing extra when you stay, making a donation to our Pay It Forward program or by just spreading the word for us. The more stays by paying customers the more nights we can donate to those in need. See 'Pay it Forward' page of this website for more details.
Our hope is create a warm and peaceful experience for you during your stay and to provide a little relief to those in need in what can feel like a crazy or overwhelming life.
PLEASE NOTE: we are only considering respites nominated by a 3rd party (not self nominated) requests at present due to some unfortunate circumstances
