Fulfilling Tiny House Days

Story by steve_jl_photography

There’s something about realising you’ve lived a fulfilling few days in nothing more than a 2.5 x 4 meter home. It puts life in perspective. Winding our way up the curving dirt road into the hills of Terip Terip to the Five Hills tiny house revealed glimpses of a clearing, and when we pulled up into open space with views as far as the eye could see, we knew this would be a special stay. Waking to a view of Mt Buller with the sun glinting off its peak was the icing on the cake. We spent an entire day by the river at the base of the property, complete with swimming hole and deck chairs set up in a cool glade. We foraged for wild blackberries for lunch, enjoyed sunrises with a campfire and tea. A perfect few days.

A day by the river

Down the hill from the tiny house is the highlight of this beautiful property – your own shady valley with a river running through it. Deck chairs and a swimming hole dammed with rocks by the owner David were waiting for us. We chilled our beers in the river, read in the crook of an old tree, and cooled off walking in the water. Before we knew it a whole day had disappeared. That’s the idea…

Foraging for lunch

Hunger hit while we were relaxing down by the river. Luckily we were surrounded by thickets of blackberries, in fruit - juicy and sweet. Mindfully picking the best of the bunch was a lunchtime well spent.

Quality time

There’s something about being in the company of trees that dwarf you, being wrapped by nature, that lends itself to true disconnection from the worries of the real world. Playtime with our dog (yes, Five Hills takes dogs!) was unlimited - he was in heaven. Chatting with each other about...

There’s something about being in the company of trees that dwarf you, being wrapped by nature, that lends itself to true disconnection from the worries of the real world. Playtime with our dog (yes, Five Hills takes dogs!) was unlimited – he was in heaven. Chatting with each other about anything and everything without the pressure of interruption – that’s a true getaway.

Sunrise by the fire

The view from your front door at Five Hills Tiny just can’t be beaten. Sunrise peaks almost perfectly through the front door this time of year. Lighting a fire to beat the morning chill, brewing a good cup of tea and enjoying the light and sound show of the stunning morning light and birds beginning their day made us feel lucky to be alive.

Stargazing

Terip Terip VIC 3719, Australia

Out here, away from anyone, the stars are so bright you can see galaxies with your naked eyes. Lying on a picnic blanket and staring up at the infinity beyond us puts everything in perspective.
