The Space

Songdahla Studio is a quaint and basically furnished shed with 3 separate rooms available for rental. 1 double & 1 queen & a meditation area with a single bed available. The bathroom is shared space with all 3 rooms. The rooms can be rented together or separately.
Songdahla studio is situated on 2 and a half acres and set a short distance away from the main residence. The residence facilitates a Oneness Sanctuary and it'(email hidden) to just BE in the energy and quiet. If workshops need a larger area the temple may be negotiated to hire in the main house.

There are places for inner reflection in the peaceful surroundings. The shed (email hidden) to meditate facilitate daily yoga practices or hold small group workshop (Maximum of 12 people - hire of venue POA) The price may be negotiated for whole shed rental if you wish to facilitate a small workshop with groups of up to 12. Ideal for meditation & yoga .Quiet space outdoors to connect alone or as a group also.There is an outdoor BBQ and sitting space ideal for writing, painting, reading etc. The shed is attached to a rainwater tank and during the colder months there is an outdoor fireplace to sit by. You feel like you are in the middle of nowhere yet connected to ALL. The best part is you are 1 minute off the expressway and you would never know it!

There are king parrots, kookaburras, Bower birds ,and we even have our own bower in the gardens for you to view, a tree/bushland outlook nestled in the side of a hill with the sound of the bell birds as natures music.You may choose to book a sacred energy balance, a sound healing, DNA activation, crystal healing($70 for session) and /or receive a gift of a Oneness blessing from your hosts. Often if you need a specific healing modality we can try to organise them eg massage, reflexology, kinesiology, hot rock massage etc.
After a healing /energy session there are places to sit, meditate and contemplate .

You may choose to simply BE in the energy and space -a healing opportunity in nature with strong elemental energies. Fountains, large loving rocks, crystals and heart opening energies are all found here. The gardens are a work in progress and each time you visit you will see the changes as our plans grow and come into BEING. Often music is played live and you are welcome to jam, join in kirtan or just absorb the healing sounds. A place where you can mingle or simply enjoy the solitude with nature that is offered in plenty.

Close to Tuggerah Station and near the expressway halfway between Sydney and Newcastle, Parking available. An easy place to stop over if traveling north or south. Just 15 minutes to the beautiful central coast beaches and 5 minutes to the lake. great places to visit are Shelley beach - nice cafe there, The Entrance with an array of cafe style eating spots and the daily pelican feeding, Mingara club for a meal &/or entertainment or not far from the HUNTER VALLEY and the vineyards. The Forrest of Tranquility is 10 minutes down the road by car for a bush walk at Ourimbah. We are close to Amazement at Wyong Creek if you want a cafe breakfast or lunch and to see the animals and mazes.We are a perfect destination to get to late at night- just 1 minute off the expressway. All easily accessed by car. We are not really setup for easy walking -there are no footpaths to the shops or station. Taxi's would be necessary Ph131 008 .

You may receive a visit from our resident hens Gerty and Daisy, Our cat Emma or dog Ode... all friendly and love a chat and some love. The shed is in the bush so sometimes little natives pop in for a visit too.

Breakfast products are provided on request and include cereal, toast, tea, coffee and fruit. The kitchenette is very basic for teas and coffees and a fridge to store salad items and meat for the BBQ. A small microwave is available but no stove . Plates are available but the shed is set up for pre-prepared food. It is more a picnic style arrangement.

Rustic shed can accommodate 5 people with 3 rooms and 3 beds. There are shops nearby with Westfield as our corner shops, places to visit,cafes and all it offers - movie theatres,restaurants and banks,shops,food halls etc

PS...If Bruce is about request one of his Divine cappuccino's! He makes dandelion cuppas too. Yummy!!

I cant always answer my phone during Mon-Wed work hours so usually can only respond after 4pm or before 7.30am on those days.
Blessings Always, safe travels and may wherever you choose to stay be divinely perfect for you

Namaste Dianne & Bruce.

  • This was an amazing experience for me and my dog, Lulu. Bruce had the relaxation music playing as a arrived and soon fired up the heater. I was in heaven straight away. This rustic shed has charm and character as do the hosts, Dianne and Bruce. I was privileged to spend a bit of time with them soaking up their warmth and easy manner of communication. It was difficult to leave. I would highly recommend this tranquil retreat.

  • We were very impressed with our first ever airbnb stay. Or little girl rearranged all Dianne's crystals into a giant fairy portal. I was very appreciative of the 11am checkout as I had some work to finish off before we hit the road. We found a jaffle iron in the cupboard and I had about 6 baked bean and cheese combos. I hadn't had jaffles since I was 10. Thanks Dianne.

  • Dianne is really kind. I booked the wrong date initially and didn't find out until Dianne messaged me asking the time of my arrival. She was cool about it and allowed me to change the date so last minute. When I arrived at the rustic shed, I can totally feel the serenity and tranquility of the place. Everything was well prepared for us :) This place is great for a short weekend getaway! Thanks a lot Dianne!

  • I arrived at The Rustic Shed to find a lovely welcoming note from Diane and Bruce, scented candles burning and soothing meditative music quietly playing in the background; the perfect recipe to compliment the Sheds wonderful relaxing energy and tranquil surrounds. The accommodation was terrific; easy to find, clean and tidy, fresh linen, plenty of blankets to curl up under, the heater already warming the bedroom, and some basic items supplied in the fridge. Dianne and Bruce welcomed me into their home with open arms and warm hearts, they are beautiful people. This was truly a wonderful experience, I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent at The Rustic Shed and will definitely return. I absolutely recommend a stay with Dianne and Bruce, where your every need will be taken care of.

  • Comfortable and convenient place to stay. Suited our needs as we were travelling and we had our dog with us. So good that we could have our dog inside with us. Also enjoyed the bush setting and the bellbirds.

  • Lovely location - very peaceful and easy to get to. The shed is extremely comfortable and clean, & Dianne goes out of her way to ensure you have what you need. I had an amazing massage from a local lady who came to the shed & I listened to the bird song in the morning over coffee. Would recommend the shed to anyone looking for a tranquil break.

  • We enjoyed our experience in the Rustic Shed...very happy to have had the place to ourselves and to have been able to spread out and enjoy the atmosphere. It was very convenient and easy to find, and although we didn't realise there would be some noise from the motorway, once inside we felt a world away from everything. Thanks Dianne and Bruce for the sweet note to greet us upon arrival...that was a very thoughtful touch.

    Response from Dianne:

    We are glad you enjoyed the privacy and space of the rustic shed.
    Yes we are 30 seconds off the motorway which is really convenient when traveling, yet once you settle in the trees and bird sounds dominate and the bustle of the cars and trucks fades into the distance as the bell birds sing out their song :)
