On the outskirts of town nestling into bushland, this 60-acre property is the ideal escape to nature without having to go too far off the beaten track. The property is approximately half farmland and half bush, with a picturesque dam visited by a thriving local bird population.
We are just an easy 2 hour drive from Melbourne and close to shopping and services, regional markets and fresh local produce.
The tiny house offers guests a comfortable stay with its well-equipped kitchenette complete with air-conditioning and heating. There is a queen sized bed up in the loft and a sofa bed on the ground floor, which can be converted to a single bed size.
The kitchenette has everything you need to cook your light meals with. A portable cooker, cookware, cooking utensils, cutlery, dishes & silverware, microwave and even a mini fridge. The portable cooker can be kept in the drawers when not in use to maximise space.
Our bathroom facilities follow ecologically sustainable principles, including a waterless eco-friendly compost toilet, hand basin and shower (gas heated for hot showers). In Australia's severe climatic challenge of bush fires and drought, we help to save the environment by conserving water using an eco-friendly toilet. Wastes are broken down in the compost toilet via an aerobic decomposition process. It is a waterless system (no need to flush!), whereas a standard dual flush toilet would use up to 350L of water per week. An aeration fan helps in the decomposition process and minimises odours.
If you're using your own soap, shampoo, tooth paste, we ask that you bring biodegradable ones so that the grey water runoff does not harm the environment. Thank you!
Guests will have access to the tiny house and surrounds except the host's house yard. Please respect the privacy of hosts, other guests and neighbors. There will be stock on the property and electric fences.
We are located in the heart of the Goulburn Valley,
