Unique Victoria Tiny House Rental for Peaceful Holidays
The most idyllic places to stay in Victoria
This unique Victoria tiny house rental was created in honour of the original tiny house, built in the mid-1950s by Syd and Ed Drendel (the host's father and uncle). It was a ‘portable hut’ and resided on the banks of Lake Albacutya and then Lake Hindmarsh in northwest Victoria. This lovely Victoria tiny house is a 21st-century version of the original retreat.
The charming rental aims to make guests feel as comfortable as possible, whilst remaining off-grid. There is a loft bed, a gas hotplate, a compost toilet, a shower, and a wood-burning heater to ensure guests feel at home during their stay in Victoria. Outside, guests will have their own secluded area, including an irrigated turf area, a fire-pit, and seats and benchtops carved out of some of the redgums that have come to the ground.
In the summer months, guests can sit under the shade of the magnificent redgums and take in the sunset, or admire the full moon filtering through the branches above you. In the winter months, glampers will love to snuggle around the campfire and watch the flames flicker and dance as they contemplate the simple things in life, and possibly toast some marshmallows.
The hosts are pet-friendly, so guests can feel free to bring their furry friends along for the experience. They may even get to meet the hosts' adopted greyhound ‘Ellie’ or the guard cat ‘Floyd’.

The predominant sounds will be those of the local birdlife, from early morning to early evening. And if the creek has water in it, the chorus sounds of frogs will fill the air every evening/night. In the distance, guests may hear a train rattling down the main Melbourne to Adelaide line. Guests may also hear the sound of tires rolling along a gravel road, from a neighbor passing by. At certain times of the year, glampers may hear the sound of a large machine toiling away in a nearby paddock, as the local farmer sows or harvests his crop.
Be kind to the environment and take care of the surroundings.
It is at the discretion of each individual host as to whether the booking can be rescheduled to another available date. If you cancel at any time, you will not receive any refund.

There are two adult kayaks and two kids kayaks for hire and there is a small lake at Murtoa (10 mins away) which is suitable for kayaking, as well as other waterways not far away. The Victoria retreat is at the southern edge of ‘The Silo Art Trail’ and is an ideal base to begin the journey. The trail stretches over 200 kilometers and provides an insight into the true spirit of the Wimmera Mallee region. The trail recognizes and celebrates the region’s people through a series of large-scale mural portraits painted onto grain silos. Many of these silos date back to the 1930s but are no longer in use today. They have been given a new lease on life as part of Australia’s largest outdoor gallery.
