About this place

About this place
Our tiny home is located in Springwater Gardens, Toolangi, with a charming mix of native vegetation, exotic European and Japanese trees with a picturesque pond too. We are in the heart of the Yarra Ranges and a gateway to the Yarra Valley with its world famous wines, wildlife and activities. You will enjoy a very special, tranquil, and remote time here.
Within the property are two ponds that are served by a natural water spring that trickles out of the hill just at the tiny house and of the closest pond to you. The property's filtered water comes from this spring, including the tiny house. It is pure mountain water.

As you wander around, you may see that there are bushes on the property that are critically endangered. The round leaf Pomaderris appears in only a few pockets around Toolangi and the largest is along the eastern edge of this property, bounding with Spraggs Road. You can see them behind the abandoned caravan just to the left of the ponds before the forest closes in.

The property you are on is around 6 acres. 100 metres away from the tiny house is our main house which is around 114 years old. In 2009, the Black Saturday bushfires went through the property and over the main house. Up to now, you can see the blackened trees around. Luckily, the fire stopped around 100 metres beyond the property towards Toolangi centre, at Spraggs Road that runs along the eastern edge.

Toolangi means "tall trees" in the indigenous Taungurung dialect.

The space
Experience living off the grid and truly disconnect here. Tiny house is located in the garden and looks out to the forest and garden.

Our tiny house is eco-friendly and solar powered (stored in a battery). It offers guests a comfortable stay with its well-equipped kitchenette, complete with cookware, utensils, a portable electric cooler fridge (uses less power) and a gas stove.

To keep warm during winters, there's a pot bellied stove / fireplace inside the tiny house with ample firewood for you to use. There is a queen sized bed up in the loft and a couch on the ground floor. It sleeps 2 persons comfortably.

As this is a solar powered tiny house, power generated is very much dependant on the availability of sunlight. During winters or cloudy days, we may not get enough charge, so it's best to conserve power as much as possible. If you need to charge your electronic devices, please bring along your power banks.

Our internal 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. The toilet uses biologically sustainable aerobic decomposition process. It is waterless and there's no need to flush. An aeration fan helps to remove odours.

Guest access
You will have access to the entire 4 acres of gardens except the main house and shed. Most of it is forested and with 2 ponds. You may see the garden, ponds, trees, and the Yea River on the corner of the property.
