Imagine waking up in a cosy little cabin in the heart of an olive grove, to the sounds of birds chirping. You look out the window and a herd of sheep and a couple of alpacas are grazing. It's wonderfully tranquil and oh so zen. That is what Shacky is all about.
A Melbourne startup, Shacky is part of the tiny house movement - a global movement that recognises the benefits of smaller spaces. For Shacky, this means providing a quick getaway in idyllic landscapes for people to escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
The first tiny house is located within a serene olive grove in Victoria’s High Country. This is but just one of five locations that will be providing unique getaway experiences in regional Australia by the end of 2017.
An escape to Shacky's tiny houses is a compelling proposition - a truly unique experience. We loved the entire experience and being able to interact with nature in a comfortable setting which did not detract from the experience.
Guests are warmly welcomed to the property by Vicki and Steve who offer local produce to be cooked within the Shacky. We highly recommend you take this option so you can have a truly intimate experience rather than going into town to eat. The property features golden rays filtering through the rows of olive trees, and offers boundless rolling hills for guests to explore, including an abundance of wildlife in addition to the farm’s own sheep and alpaca.
The tiny house itself is absolutely gorgeous - Think large windows, a little deck and a shower with unobstructed views into the surrounding olive grove. Arriving at Shacky, it's hard to believe you're only a couple of hours from the city. Shacky’s tiny houses are built with sustainability in mind, it leaves very little carbon footprint and is completely solar powered. The space has all the comforts of home minus the clutter and stress. The experience transports you a million miles away and is ideal for some R&R and rejuvenation.
Shacky’s first tiny house in Victoria’s High Country, nestled within a serene olive grove is available for bookings now. For more information or to plan your next getaway, visit www.shacky.co.
