We’re on a mission to help the ‘always on’ switch off

Since launching in 2020, we've been building tech-free cabins for busy folk to escape to. 

We're Hector and Ben

Pals, co-founders, and believers that the world, and everyone on it, would be happier and more productive if we dedicated time to going offline for a few days each year.

Unplugging should be easy, accessible and without any woo-woo. That’s why we created Unplugged, to help the always-on, switch off.

We were victims of burn out

We worked hard, but also played hard. Too many beers, at too many pubs, was too frequent a thing. Working together at a tech startup, we were clocking up 11 hours of screen time a day. The result? We burnt out. 

So Hector escaped to The Himalayas

With a growing frustration of the inability to switch off, Hector spent 2 weeks at a silent retreat in the mountains. 

He spent his time meditating, doing chores and contemplating the meaning of life and upon his return, feeling completely recharged and refocused, he quit his job on Monday.

And Ben wanted a bit of that zen...quickly.

Ben is far less zen and you wouldn’t find him meditating with monks any time soon. However, after realising he was clocking up 14 hours of screen time a day and seeing Hector return completely recharged, we thought…

How can we get busy city folk to unplug from their devices and recharge without flying halfway around the globe?

And so Unplugged was born

We decided to build beautiful off-grid cabins just outside of city life that take less than an hour or two to get to. 

We've made it easy to access the ancient remedy of nature. Our cabins are your space to kick back, relax and unwind away from hectic cities and technology. 


Unique off-grid cabins nestled in nature

We have 19 (and counting) uniquely designed log cabins that provide busy folk with a place to switch off and recharge their batteries. Each with a huge picture window that makes you feel like you're waking up in nature from the comfort of your bed. 

About the cabins


With no wifi or technology

In the modern world, we rarely go for dinner, spend time with friends or go to sleep without a screen in sight. We're always on, and always busy. 

Unplugged cabins give you a space to intentionally go offline for a 3 or 4 night digital detox.
