Located in the heart of the Mornington Peninsula, this off-grid Tiny House offers an affordable weekend escape from the city. Perfectly located just 60 minutes from the city, The Merricks North Tiny House offers a quiet retreat so you can relax with nothing but green grass around you.


Capable of sleeping 2 people, The Merricks North Tiny House offers a 2-acre paddock facing south towards towering pine trees. Relax on the couch downstairs in the summer months with a book in hand or learn a new card game. In winter, climb the ladder upstairs to the second loft and watch a movie from the comfort of the warmer mezzanine level. The Tiny House has a split system with air conditioning for warmer months that serves as a heater in cooler months. Powered completely from solar panels on the roof, this eco-friendly Tiny House is the perfect destination for those who want to protect the place we all call home.


The owner firmly believes in a good nights' sleep. The Queen-sized bed has a mattress from Koala with sheets by Inbed and The Sheet Society. Plus, a remote-controlled retractable skylight blind lets you watch the stars at night or let the sun shine during the day. 


Being on the Mornington Peninsula means you have an endless list of nearby restaurants, take-away options and of course, over 50 wineries with cellar doors. Balnarring is the nearest township (5-minute drive) with two bottle-shops, multiple take-away options, a large IGA supermarket and multiple cafes.


If you feel like cooking, the Tiny House has a full-sized fridge and freezer, full-sized oven, microwave and a dual-burner gas stove with all kitchen amenities so you can enjoy a meal on the spacious deck or a cheese board out in the French Courtyard. When the weather allows, enjoy an outdoor fire with our complimentary fire-pit (non-restricted times only) surrounded by veggie boxes and mother nature.


Please note, this Tiny House is off-grid. Excessive consumption of appliances may cause the power to run out for a short period of time. The toilet is composting so please do not use it for anything other than what we are supposed to do.
