Accommodation description
About this listing
This is a historical shipyard dating back to the late 1800, with breathtaking views of the farm land and open skies. The Williams river is right at your door step. The property is called “The Old Shipyard” because of its heritage.

Important note : There are 2 other tiny houses on this property in the same paddock. Both tiny houses are available for guests to rent. Both of the tiny houses are visible from the main house around 300m away. They do have an outlook facing the river not towards the main house.

“The Clyde” is the other listing and sleeps 3 persons while the other one is called “The Whispers” which can accommodate up to 4 persons. If you would like to book all tiny houses for group bookings, please enquire with us for more info.

The space
With the Williams river banks lining the property fishing from the pontoon, swimming, canoeing, boating, all from the private boat ramp or simply sit in this peaceful location surrounded by green mountains open skies and the stunning Williams river at your feet. There are 2 kayaks down by the water that is free for guests to use. There will be life jackets for each.

Our tiny house is a lovely studio space of 155 sqft. It offers guests a comfortable stay with its well-equipped kitchenette, complete with a queen sized bed, ensuite bathroom, air-conditioning and heating. Perfect for 2 persons!

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!
