About this listing

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

The space

Do you want a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, the frustration of traffic congestion, from noise and pollution? Does open space, fresh air, and the peace and quiet of nature sound appealing? Well, come and experience the ‘Yarriambiance’ of our unique rural escape.

Yarriambiance (noun)

Yar-ri-am-bi-ance

Definition of Yarriambiance

"A feeling or mood associated with fresh air, open spaces, big skies, stunning sunsets, starry nights, open fires and the sounds of nature, on the banks of the Yarriambiack Creek"

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 the rural setting.

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, compost toilet, shower and wood burning heater are just some of the features that will make you feel at home. 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.

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, 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 local farmer sows or harvests his crop.

We are pet friendly, so 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’.

**PLEASE REFER TO INFORMATION BELOW, REGARDING COVID 19, BEFORE BOOKING**

Covid 19 Safe Plans – Temporary changes to help stop the spread.

To help stop the spread of the virus, we've made some temporary changes:

People from areas which are experiencing a high level of transmission or are at high risk of transmission, and are under Stay at Home restrictions in Victoria, will not be offered accommodation at this stage.

We currently have no cases in the region, and we would like to continue to play our part in keeping the region safe. This is especially important, given that we are a vulnerable regional area with limited health resources. For any new bookings, we will make contact with the guest to confirm where they are travelling from.

For guests that are accepted, the following will apply;

1. Contactless check in and out procedure
To be in line with safe distancing rules and minimise physical contact, the check-in and check-out may be contactless. Safe distances will be maintained throughout. If you need help, your hosts will be able to assist via phone call.
2. Cleaning and disinfecting, including frequently touched surfaces
The tavern will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected according to Safe Work Australia's cleaning guide. Frequently touched surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected after every guest checks out.
3. Antibacterial hand soap will be provided.
To help you protect yourselves, we will provide antibacterial hand soap. Please use these to wash your hands whenever you are back from your local tours or visits to town.

If you need more space to bring other family and friends, we also have these additional options on the property.
– Check out the listing for 'Yarriambiance' Greenhills Rustic Cabin
– Tiny bed with tent extension. We can set up a rooftop camper at the front of the tiny house with an additional tent extension. Suitable for up to 3 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.

Neighborhood

The property is located in the heart of the Wimmera, a broadacre farming area.

On the map, Jung is the closest ‘township’, being only 5 minutes way. In reality though Jung is now nothing more than a collection of houses and a town hall. Murtoa is located 10 minutes away, and is the closest town providing shops and services, including a grocery store, hotel, café, swimming pool and various other amenities (including fuel). Horsham, located 20 minutes away, is the major hub of Western Victoria, with all major amenities and shopping chains available, including fast food outlets, hotels, restaurants, big brand shopping outlets (Bunnings, Aldi, Target, etc).

If you would like to explore the area, then we have a myriad of attractions close by, which are ideal for day trips.

The property is at the southern edge of ‘The Silo Art Trail’ and is an ideal base to begin the journey. The trail stretches over 200 kilometres and provides an insight into the true spirit of the Wimmera Mallee region. The trail recognises 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 1930’s, but are no longer in use today. They have been given a new lease on life as part of Australia’s largest outdoor gallery.

‘The Stick Shed’ is only 10 minutes away, and located in the township of Murtoa. It is the only remaining emergency grain store built during World War 2 and is the 101st place included in the National Heritage List. Referred to by some as the ‘Cathedral of the Wimmera’, the Murtoa Stick Shed’s ghostly unmilled tall timber poles and central aisle draw the eye upward towards the roof as light spills into the space through skylights as if through stained glass windows.
For those that want to do the full ‘tourist’ thing, then the Grampians National Park is less than an hour away. Rising abruptly from the surrounding Western Plains, the Grampians (Gariwerd) is a series of rugged sandstone mountain ranges and forests rich in wildlife. The park is a great venue for scenic drives, bushwalks and nature study. It is also the home of the Halls Gap Zoo. A network of walking tracks throughout the park allows you to explore cascading waterfalls, brilliant spring wildflower displays, and panoramic views from lookouts. The area has a rich Aboriginal heritage and a number of important rock art sites.
If you are into mountain climbing, then Mount Arapilies is only 40 minutes away. Mt Arapiles is widely regarded as a top rock climbing area in Australia and is world renowned. More than 2000 routes have been developed on the many cliffs, crags and pinnacles, presenting variety and challenge to climbers of all levels of experience.

Or why not explore some of Victoria’s outback, by doing a day trip up to Lake Hindmarsh & Lake Albacutya (both currently dry). If you prefer your lakes with water in them, the Lake Lascelles at Hopetoun is a beautiful small lake ideal for families and picnics. Beulah, Brim and Warracknabeal also have waterholes which are all ideal for paddling, boating or fishing.
