Accommodation description
About this place
Wake up to glorious sunrises and the tranquil sounds of nature in this picturesque setting. We are only 10 minutes away from town and a few minutes more to beautiful surf beaches, rock pools, whale observatory and deep blue mineral springs.
This property overlooks a stunning rural valley and undulating hills. Edging on to untouched natural bushland, this 40-acre property is home to many native and domesticated animals.

Other local attractions include the alluring Merri River walks and park, historic Koroit, Tower Hill wildlife reserve, and Port Fairy (known as the world's most livable town).

Situated as a bridge between The Great Ocean Road and The Grampians, this rustic yet elegant tiny house in Woodford provides the perfect opportunity to wind down after a big day of exploration, or simply as a getaway for some down time or rest and relaxation.

Finish the day with full panoramic views of spectacular sunsets and in the cooler months enjoy an outside campfire or a cozy inside wood heater.

The space
Experience living off the grid and truly disconnect here. Our tiny house is eco-friendly and solar powered. It offers guests a comfortable stay with its well-equipped kitchenette, complete with a small indoor pot bellied stove / fireplace. There is a queen sized bed up in the loft and a couch on the ground floor. It sleeps 2 persons comfortably.

The kitchenette has everything you need to cook your light meals with. A 2 hob gas cook top, cookware, cooking utensils, cutlery, dishes & silverware and even a portable electric cooler fridge.

Our bathroom facilities follow ecologically sustainable principles, including a water less 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!

Do note that because the tiny house is solar powered, during winters or on days with low light conditions, limited power is generated. It will be best to conserve power as much as possible to avoid running out of power at night. You can bring portable power banks to charge your hand phone etc.
