Tranquil Tiny Home Caramel
Upon arrival, we immediately felt the pace slow. Tiny Home Caramel is nestled in its own pocket of the Australian wilderness. Sitting out on the deck, it took only moments for kookaburras to arrive and inspect what we were up to. The tiny home itself has everything you need to unwind; a fully equipped kitchen, plenty of tea and coffee, candles and extra wine glasses. This was our first stay in a tiny home, and it was pleasing how comfortable it felt – intimate but spacious.
I’d only ever passed through Timboon, so it was fun to explore what the local area had on offer. There’s certainly a lot to choose from! The tiny home is a short drive from some of Victoria’s most scenic walks along the Great Ocean Road, as well as Timboon’s Trestle Bridge. We had the entire rail trail to ourselves for hours, crossing sunken bridges and weaving around wooden railroad posts covered with moss and ivy.
We started each day cooking our own breakfast, buying local ingredients in Camperdown, Port Campbell and the nearby IGA. Really, it felt like a weekend of extravagant food (no complaints!). A particular highlight was stopping by Timboon Fine Ice Cream (confession: one day we went twice). We had a lovely conversation with Caroline, the host, and learned a lot about how Timboon and its local businesses have grown recently.
A cosy setting to retreat to each day, Tiny Home Caramel is a delightful space to recharge before heading out again to explore what Timboon and surroundings have to offer....
