Accommodation description
About this place
The property is 20 acres of farmland nestled in the Wombat Forest of central Victoria. The cool climate and high rainfall means we are surrounded by lovely, tall eucalypt forest. The house and garden is extensively planted with ornamental and productive gardens, including a fruit orchard, veggie garden and avenues of deciduous trees. The farm is home to a small flock of sheep, chooks, a very friendly border collie dog, and abundant birdlife.
The rear of the property has 5 acres of forest to explore with elevated views to the east and access beyond to the Wombat Forest. The nearby forest includes lush fern covered gullies which form the head waters of the Moorabool river.

The space
The tiny house is secluded from the main house next to the fruit orchard with views to the rear of the property and surrounding forest. There are plenty of spaces to explore or simply relax under a shady tree. Organic fresh produce is available seasonally including fresh eggs from the chooks.

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. It can sleep 2 adults (in the loft) and 1 child (on the sofa bed) comfortably.

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!

Guest access
Guests can access all areas of the property except the main house, sheds and paddocks where livestock are grazing.

We are situated in the countryside and you may encounter insects such as spiders throughout your stay as these are part of the natural ecosystem of the bush
