This is a standalone unit at the rear of our lifestyle block with 2 bedrooms. One has king bed and a foldaway cot and the other a single bed. We are kid friendly but be aware we are on a farmlet so lots of hazards - please no unsupervised kids outside! But you are welcome to say hi to the sheep and chooks and we have cats and a dog who are friendly.

We do have a rooster. If you sleep lightly, earplugs will help!

The space
We are close to town but still in the country. We have a 1 acre ‘tiny farm’ where we grow all our veg. Your unit is peaceful (except for the early morning rooster) and self contained.

We are however, not a motel unit. You will see some scuffs and marks on the walls - which have been scrubbed but...
This was set up for family members who lived in it while they built their home.
Some of the appliances are second hand and well used (pre-loved!). The benchtop in the kitchen is slightly 'sticky' but it's because the product used to seal it hasn't held up well. It is cleaned thoroughly though. The couch and chair are pre-loved. Again, they have been cleaned and get a vacuum after every guest.
We have a foldaway cot with mattress and linen, a highchair and foldaway playpen (kept behind the couch) which are old school but very useable.

All bedding is fresh, and laundered after each guest has gone and the bathroom gets a full clean too. But it's not a 5* unit as it has been fitted out with our 'recycle, re-use and do-it-yourself' mentality. (except for bedding/pillows etc!)

We are in the country so there may be a bug or two which turns up in there. There is bug spray in the unit.

We provide breakfast for you - bread, milk, butter, cereal, jam & marmite. A packet of biscuits for your evening cuppa and we have plunger coffee, tea, coffee sachets etc.

There’s a great walking/biking track across the road - flat but pretty. There’s a dairy, bottle store and fish & chip shop about 500m away but we are also on a lifestyle block so it feels country.

Love being able to stay somewhere NOT a hotel. Enjoy places which have a bit of character but nothing too fancy suits too
