WELCOME to a little piece of paradise. On an organic farm, bordering Cape Otway National Park, surrounded by trees, koalas, birds and other wildlife, is a unique, beautifully designed, eco-friendly "tiny-home", built from a shipping-container, and up-cycled building materials. It features a green-house bathroom with a hot tub surrounded by lush ferns and tropical flowers. Relax and rejuvenate your mind, body and soul. And explore the world famous attractions of the Great Ocean Road.

El espacio
The Welcome-Swallow Hideaway, is situated on an acre of an organic farm, on the edge of the eucalypt and myrtle forest of the national park . The quiet and serenity, the beautiful views, the comfortable cosy living space and the abundance wildlife make it an excellent place to stay, and as a base to explore The Great Ocean Road, or holiday with family or friends, or to simply just escape the city and slow down.
A family of Koalas live in the trees of the national park, right next to the house. We also regularly see kangaroos, wallabies, possums, echidnas and many native birds. There are hiking trails just behind the cabin.
From every window in the cabin you can look out into the eucalypt forest, or out across the rolling green hills. The sunny north-facing deck provides stunning views over the Aire valley. Here on the edge of the wilderness, the air is so alive and fresh, that simply breathing feels like an act of self-care. You will feel a sense of calm, of being hugged by nature.

The cabin is designed from a shipping-container, which now serves as the bedroom, extended with recovered and new building materials, to produce a light-filled kitchen/dining /lounge area, and an amazing bathroom greenhouse.
The beds are comfortable and warm. The pot-belly fireplace heats up the home beautifully. The bathroom greenhouse is a living sanctuary of lush ferns, vines, flowers, terrariums, and pot plants. There is nothing better than a hot candle-lit bath or shower, amongst the greenery, looking up through the windows at the moon or starlit sky. The large hot-tub comfortably fits 2 (and can fit up to 4 adults), so make a night of it, and pamper yourself.
Note: our hot tub is NOT a spa. It is a hot tub only.
The kitchen is fully equipped for gourmet cooking and baking, for those who like to get creative in the kitchen. Stove top Espresso coffee maker and fresh ground coffee are provided, as well as milk, tea, sugar, cooking oil and some fresh herbs from our herb garden. Appliances include refrigerator with freezer, gas stovetop, oven and grill, a rice-cooker, toaster, kettle and hand-held held blender. We have all the kitchen utensils and baking dishes you are likely to need.
(Note: we no longer supply wine glasses due to high occurrence of breakage.)
The home is designed to support the ecological values of our organic farm, and the pristine environment of the Otways. Choosing to stay in our eco-friendly accommodation allows you to enjoy a beautiful relaxing holiday while leaving no impact on the natural environment you have come here to enjoy.
The Welcome Swallow Hideaway has been a special project for my daughter and I. It is ecologically-friendly, comfortable and stylish, and now we want to share it with you. We named the cabin after a pair of Welcome-Swallows who made a mud-nest on the front porch during the summer, raising a family of 4 baby swallows. Their presence made us feel welcomed. We hope our guest will experience this same sense of welcome.
It is a very special place.

We ask that guests who travel at this difficult time please have patience, understanding and respect for these limitations. If this does not suit you please chose a different Airbnb to stay in, as we do not want to disappoint any of our guests.

Otros aspectos a destacar
1. Our toilet system is an outdoors eco-toilet system. This may not be suitable for all types of guests. If you would like more information please message me, i'm happy to answer any questions.
2. During summer months when it does not rain, we ask guest to be mindful of water use. For bookings during November to March, the hot-tub bath may not be available for use as filling the bath tub may put strain on our water supply. Showers during this summer period are fine, and still a unique and beautiful experience to take a shower surrounded by ferns and plants! If you are booking our place purely for the experience of using the hot-tub and taking a bath, please book with us during the months of April to October when there is plenty of rain.

All throughout the year guests must be mindful of our water source. This is a condition of staying with us.

3. Guests must provide some additional firewood as we are limited in this resource. Write to us for more info.

4. Guests must be responsible for their own garbage disposal, no garbage may be left behind.


Staying in an eco-cabin comes with accepting certain limitations such as having limited resources, being on tank water, having a composting toilet system and being responsible for your waste and the resources you consume.
If these limitations and the ethos of sustainability does not suit you, please chose a different style of Airbnb to stay in.
