Overview

Tiny Robert is a charmer. He’s set in a quiet, secluded meadow far enough away from the noise but close enough to wineries, coffee shops and some incredible hikes. Immerse yourself in nature by day and sleep under the soft glow of uninterrupted starlight. Named after Robert Jordan from Ernest Hemingway’s For Whom The Bell Tolls, this tiny house serves as a necessary reminder to live for today.


“Oh, now, now, now, the only now, and above all now, and there is no other now but thou now and now is thy prophet.” - Ernest Hemingway


Location

Tiny house Robert lives on a 10,000 acre property in south west NSW close to the town of Bungendore. A world away from the hustle and bustle of the city, life here is slow and good for the soul. 


The main window of Robert frames a sweet windmill and incredible views across the valley. Once you step outside, take a deep breath of fresh air and head down to the dam to unwind by the water.  


The nearby historic village of Bungendore is a quaint place with antiques, delicious eateries, and shops stocked with fresh local produce - chestnuts, truffles, biodynamic wineries and more. We recommend stopping in on your way to pick up supplies for your stay. 


Details

Tiny house Robert sleeps four with a Queen bed in the loft and two single beds downstairs. The single beds are set up on an “L” shaped lounge. One of the single beds is perfect for children, but adults may find it a little tight. The other side comfortably sleeps 1 adult. 


Fresh bedding, linen, and towels are provided so are basic toiletries such as soap, shampoo, conditioner. You may be in the wild but don't worry we've set you up to have hot running water for your shower and the water is also perfectly drinkable. Making delicious meals is no issue with a bar fridge to store your food, a stove to cook on and basic condiments such as salt, pepper, sugar and oil at your disposal. 


We believe the best experience you can have at a tiny home is to do as little as possible, but there are board games and books to keep you entertained. Theres also plenty of hikes and walks available around the house. 


How our tiny houses work:

Our tiny houses are powered by the sun and gas bottles, so don't expect to charge your laptop or plug in any appliances, but there is a small USB charger that may work if the sun is shining.

Amazing!

We (slowly, due to the semi-rough terrain on the path to the Cabin - the Mazda3 wasn't a fan, but it certainly did the job without any troubles) made our way to Robert and early explored the Tiny Cabin. The cabin had everything needed for a brief romantic escape. The two windows of the 'living/dining' area provided uninterrupted long-views of two fields with scatterings of native flora, and an endearing windmill. Although the kitchenette would prove sufficient for hotter and potentially more elaborate meals, we would highly recommend taking food for an antipasto board - the fridge is big enough to store an assortment of items although an esky would be recommended if you are planning on having a few drinks over the course of your stay. There is also a BBQ and fire pit, but due to a total fire ban during our stay, we didn't use them. The lounge and bed within the cabin are quite comfortable. Being relatively tall I had to be cautious when climbing the ladder into the loft (where the bed is) so as to not hit my head on the roof (I'm 6'2" for reference). There is also a sun/moon roof above the bed making late-night star gazing possible, but it was too overcast for us to enjoy during our visit. The highlights of our stay were; sitting at the dining table looking out at the setting sun landscape and enjoying fine food and wine; exploring the few walking tracks we could find (due to the overgrown flora the path was unclear and ended abruptly at some points, making it difficult to explore the property in full); running through the fields; listening to the sounds of nature through the afternoon, evening, and morning; and simply enjoying the time away from the relative stressful and manic lifestyle of city-living.
