The "Mayfair v2.0" Tiny House is managed in conjunction with the people at Tiny Away. Tiny Away integrates the concept of tiny houses with eco-tourism. By doing so, we want to allow everyone a chance to experience tiny living in the midst of nature and stay in comfort.

Nestled amongst the ancient redgums, on the banks of the Yarriambiack Creek, is the Mayfair (v2.0) Tiny House, which will be your home away from home, as you relax and unwind in this rural setting.

The Mayfair (v2.0) is a 21st century version of the original Mayfair. Mayfair (v2.0) is named in honour of the original tiny house, built in the mid 1950’s by Syd and Ed Drendel (your host's father and uncle). They named it the ‘Mayfair’ after a swanky Melbourne hotel that they stayed in. It was a ‘portable hut’, which later became known as ‘Fishermans Hut’, and resided on the banks of Lake Albacutya and then Lake Hindmarsh, in north west Victoria. The Mayfair (v2.0) is a 21st century version of the original Mayfair

It aims to make you feel as comfortable as possible, whilst remaining off-grid. A loft bed, gas hotplate, shower and wood burning heater are just some of the features that will make you feel at home. A flushing toilet with a porcelain bowl is provided for extra guest comfort. The holding tank contains a biological additive which is environmentally friendly and septic safe. This additive eliminates unpleasant smells, reduces gas build up and stimulates the breakdown of waste matter & toilet paper.

Outside, you will have your own secluded area, including an irrigated turf area, a fire-pit and seats and bench tops carved out of some of the redgums that have come to ground.

In the summer months, 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, snuggle around the campfire and watch the flames flicker and dance as you contemplate the simple things in life, and possibly toast some marshmallows.

Please note that the creek is currently dry (it depends on seasonal rainfall), but there are many waterholes not far away that are worth exploring. When dry, the creek makes a great walking trail. 

The predominant sounds will be those of the local birdlife, from early morning to early evening. And when the creek has water in it, the chorus sounds of frogs will fill the air every evening/night.  In the distance, you may hear a train rattling down the main Melbourne to Adelaide line. Or you may hear the sound of tyres rolling along a gravel road, from a neighbour passing by. At certain times of the year, you may hear the sound of large machine toiling away in a nearby paddock, as the neighbouring farmer sows or harvests his crop.

Please note,  the property is 'pet friendly' but we respectfully ask that pets are not taken inside of the accommodation. Feel free to bring your furry friends along for the experience. . They may even get to meet our adopted greyhound ‘Ellie’, or our guard cat ‘Floyd’.

If you need more space to bring other family and friends, we also have these additional options on the property.

- Tiny House Truck (check out the listing for "The International"). Suitable for up to 5 people.

- Rustic Cabin (check out the listing for "Greenhills Tavern"). Suitable for up to 6 people.

-Campsite. Suitable for up to 4 caravans/RV's/campers, or 20 people. Complete with decking, green grass, campfire pit and mains water.

Please message the host if you would like to enquire about using any of the above.
