Strawbale Home In Leafy Suburb -
I am happy to share our family home for other travellers visiting Melbourne.
We have a welcoming home with: reclaimed timbers, textured strawbale walls, open plan living, fire place in winter and an outside entertaining area with table tennis and bbq and couches. The guest bedroom is quiet, private and reflects the natural elements of our eco friendly home construction. Some people call it a well loved urban barn.
The guest room is large, light and spacious. It has a double or queen bed with table and 2 chairs, a couch, TV (by request), wardrobe space (by request) and a shared bathroom ensuite. It has easterly views out to the garden, with great ventilation from french doors and an opposing window that open to allow a beautiful breeze into the room on warmer days.
We are 25km from Melbourne CBD and are 15km to Mt Dandenong and 20km from the Yarra Valley. The beach, the city, the hills and the valley are all about 30min away by car.
ActivitiesI have a folder with a variety of eating places close to home and a list of services and activities you may be interested to do. We are happy to help you coordinate your plans whilst in Melbourne.
Tennis courts, an oval and a play ground are 500metres away. I can provide 2 yoga mats, tennis racquets, bicycles and balls. Our street backs onto the bike path along Taralla Creek and leads you to Dandenong Creek bike path.
Public transport is close by: By train you can get off at Ringwood Station and catch bus #679 to the PB petrol station near the corner of Canterbury Rd and Gracedale ave. Its a 5min walk from there.
Heathmont, Ringwood East and Bayswater stations are also a 20 min walk away.
Our place feels like an eco retreat in the suburbs. You feel close to the natural elements of the earth with our style of construction and earth/reclaimed building materials. People most often say they feel 'at home and relaxed' in our space.
Street parking is available for your car/caravan/motorhome. Driveway parking is available for motorbikes or cars by request.
You will be able to access the communal kitchen, the open plan lounge area and the more private lounge room where the fireplace is. You are free to enjoy the outside spaces, and use the veggies from the garden bed in moderation.

I am an adventurer of life, curious, open minded and a people person, I like to dance, cycle, do yoga and enjoy the moment that I am living. There is almost nothing better than deepening connection and intimacy with people I have in my life, alongside being a helpful person and serving a greater purpose. I love my work with birthing women and being a part of supporting someone to be more confident and able to achieve what they hope to achieve.
