Rent our home for a year

Open plan, double-glazed, solar powered, fully furnished (negotiable), permaculture house and garden in Daylesford, Victoria. Short restorative bush walks to Lake Daylesford and mineral waters and even shorter walks to town. Buses to railway stations for possible car-free living.

Shop for groceries at the Hepburn Wholefoods Collective, walk and bike everywhere, order your organic vegie boxes direct from nearby farms, grow your own food in our garden’s delicious soil and/or at one of the community gardens, walk out and camp in the surrounding bushland, shop for clothes at the community op-shop or see the latest films at the community run cinema.

However you want to live, come and trial living in Daylesford for a year. Our home is two bedrooms although the study/office can become a third bedroom. Apart from extensive fruit trees, the garden also features chooks and ducks, a trampoline, rainwater tanks and a dog run. We will remove all personal belongings from the house so as it is as much a neutral space we can provide for you to make your home. However happy to leave plates, cutlery, pots etc…

    Hello, I am a mum of three living in the UK and the thought of spending a year in your amazing space and all the changes that would bring sounds just about the most beautiful thing that could happen. But boring things like visas and committments kind of get in the way! Whoever is lucky enough to take on this life challenge, I really hope they share their experiences on a blog as I would love to follow. You and your sister both live lives of authenticity and creativity and your blogs just open up my eyes to a way of life I aspire to. I haven't found my 'home' yet but from a mum seeking life, I wish you love and light on your journey.

  4. Thanks so much, we're heading up the east coast of Australia on bikes looking for free food and living simply.
