So you really want to get away from it all?

A South Australian eco-tourism company has launched its second off-grid tiny luxury cabin boasting great views.

The cabin, named Maldhi, is on the edge of a picturesque gully overlooking the coastal cliffs of Sleaford Bay, on the south coast of the Eyre Peninsula.
It features views across Sleaford Bay to white sandhills separating Port Lincoln National Park from the  southern ocean.

“It’s a truly magical and private location, surrounded by pristine native vegetation with panoramic views,” EYRE.WAY director Amanda Hogg said.

“Not only are kangaroos often spotted hopping across the landscape, in winter Southern Right whales who call the shallow waters home are just a stone's throw away, enjoying the pristine and relatively calm waters of Sleaford Bay.”

EYRE.WAY founders Amanda and Tim Hogg’s mission is to provide environmentally sustainable luxury and private accommodation at the Eyre Peninsula’s best - and most secret - locations, where visitors can be immersed in nature.

The launch of Maldhi, which means “night sky” in Barngarla, follows the success of Yambara, a tiny cabin built by Amanda and Tim and launched in November last year.

Located on a secluded stretch of coast near Port Lincoln, Yambara has been nearly sold out since it opened with a 95% occupancy rate.

“The success and love for Yambara has just blown us away,” Amanda said.

“We have had guests from all over Australia who want to escape their busy lives and just be completely immersed in nature come and stay, so we decided to build a second tiny cabin.”

Amanda said the concept of being offline was a real luxury as people could escape emails, phone calls, traffic, social media and people.

“Making a minimal contribution to climate change while enjoying a break is such a positive for our guests,” she said.

“It’s a special feeling knowing the sun is powering your accommodation, and we hope it inspires guests to live more sustainably when their holiday ends.”

Maldhi is completely off-the-grid, featuring a solar powered/battery system powered purely by the sun. Rainwater is captured in Port Lincoln and taken to the tiny cabin. Grey water is taken off site and removed sustainably.

“Our architect designed the tiny abode to make the most of nature's warming and cooling characteristics, and we used environmentally sustainable materials throughout the construction process,” Amanda added.

Two more cabins are in the pipeline.

Maldhi is available for $450 per night and sleeps four people. Book here:
