Monterey Eco Stay

A secluded and intimate luxury escape inspired by the need to live smaller and more sustainably in this rapidly developing world. Monterey has been thoughtfully designed to lessen our environmental footprint and reduce our reliance on natural resources.

Nestled amongst 35 acres of native forest this tiny house offers guests the perfect opportunity to explore nature, unwind and recharge.

Entirely off grid and built from salvaged Monterey Cypress timber, the house is ideal for two to four people or a solo getaway offering a dreamy king-sized bed downstairs and a cosy double bed in the upstairs loft.

Quality bed linen, baker’s oven wood heater, floor to ceiling forest views from the shower and bedroom and complimentary bottle of organic wine are just the beginning of this memorable stay. 

Explore the surrounding forest and wildflowers and immerse yourself in the sounds of nature. 

Located only 2km to the Captains Creek Winery cellar door and cafe (open on weekends between 11am-5pm) and 1km to the Swiss Mountain Hotel.

Farm fresh breakfast supplies are included eggs, bread, muesli, tea, coffee, milk and juice.

“We had an amazing short staycation at Doug and Carolyn’s. The house was perfect for a short off the grid getaway and had all the amenities you could ever need (bread and eggs included!) The location was perfect in how it felt secluded and tucked away, but was only a short drive from attractions in and around Daylesford. Would highly recommend”. Maverick

“We arrived in the evening to find a golden glow from this tiny house peaking through the trees. What a beautiful greeting. Our stay was peaceful, relaxing and restorative after so many lockdowns. What a truly brilliant eco-friendly getaway you have created. The shower is an absolutely sublime experience, but the cosiness of this place is a true credit to you both. Thank you so much for such a divine commune with nature”. Jilly and Graeme

“As soon as we drove up the driveway we immediately felt relaxed. The tiny house feels surprisingly spacious with a clear view to the serene bushland outside. After a short bushwalk we sat on the deck with a cheese platter and a bottle of Captains Creek cider, it is exactly the escape we needed after so many lockdowns. We also cooked homemade pizzas in the oven under the fire which were delicious. The highlight of our stay was at night. The full moon was absolutely breathtaking shining over the bed. I’ve never felt more at peace. Thank you so much for having us. I can’t wait to return to this beautiful getaway”. Elise
