This charming and eco-friendly tiny house is located in Castlemaine, Central Victoria, and can accommodate two guests. There is an upper loft area with an inviting full-size bed and a full bathroom, where guests will find a modern composting toilet and a deep, Japanese-style bathtub with gravity-fed hot water. Linens and towels are provided.

In the living area, guests will find a comfortable seating area, a handmade wood-burning fireplace for heating, and a fold-out dining table that doubles as a laptop-friendly workspace. The kitchen comes with a methylated-spirits stove and oven, a kettle, a French press, and plenty of dishes. Other amenities include free parking on-site and breakfast.

Outside, guests will find a covered veranda with views of the steam train railway, the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea while enjoying the outdoors. Guests will also have access to the garden.

Guests should note that staying in a tiny house on wheels is its own adventure, and staying in an off-grid version is even more out of the ordinary. Therefore, guests should expect to experience using unconventional appliances (fridge, stove, toilet, bath, and heater), a ladder to get into the sleeping loft, and all the clever transformable space one might expect in a tiny house on wheels.

This property provides guests with all the facilities they will need for a comfortable and relaxing stay. The tiny house is designed for off-the-grid living and includes several unique, eco-friendly features to give guests an experience unlike any other. The property features a handmade wood heater, solar hot water, a laptop-friendly workspace, and a covered veranda for enjoying the outdoors. Breakfast is provided for guests each morning. Other amenities include free, on-site parking and full access to the garden.

This tiny house features several unconventional appliances for an off-the-grid experience. Many of these appliances require special attention for safety and comfort. The hosts are happy to show all guests how to properly use each household feature. For safety reasons, however, this house is not suitable for children under the age of 13.

Guests should be aware of the following features:

There is a ladder to the sleeping loft. Guests should have a level of physical fitness and agility necessary to climb ladders.

There is a deep, Japanese style bathtub, so guests should have a level of agility necessary to step in an out of the tub safely.

The hot water in the bathroom is gravity-fed, meaning there is low water pressure. The hot water is a passive solar design; it is heated by the sun in summer and by the wood heater in winter. Therefore, temperatures may vary depending on factors such as sunlight and use of the wood-burning fire.

The wood heater requires special knowledge to use. The hosts are happy to make and maintain the fire for guests upon request during their stay.

The toilet is a modern composting design. The hosts will instruct all guests on proper use.

The stove and oven in the kitchen area use methylated spirits. The flame is silent and requires careful attention when turning it on and off.

Be kind to the environment and take care of the surroundings.
