The new Pink Lake Tiny House in South Australia’s Clare Valley is an eco-friendly “tiny house” just a stone’s throw from the iconic pink salt lake – Lake Bumbunga.
The self-contained tiny house is an easy 90-minute drive from Adelaide, and is off-the-grid, ensuring guests’ stay is gentle on the planet and climate-friendly.
Sustainability is at the heart of the Tiny House, with electricity generated through solar panels on the roof and stored in a 5KW battery for use at night. Water is collected on the roof and stored in a 5000-litre tank with mains water connected as back-up. There is a bio-composting toilet and the grey water from the sink and shower is filtered to water plant beds.
It may only be 7.2m long and 2.4m wide, but the Pink Lake Tiny House comfortably sleeps four people in two loft bedrooms with a skylight for stargazing in the main loft room.
The house has a well-equipped kitchen and living area, and a bathroom with toilet, shower, and wash basin. Guests can relax in comfort on the outdoor deck and take in the amazing views of the 15 square kilometre pink lake with its constantly changing colours daily from dawn to dusk.
The cosy, compact size of the Pink Lake Tiny House is designed so that guests can focus on – and connect with – the people they are travelling with.
Owners and operators, Michael and Christina Seeliger say that while the lake is a drawcard for day-trippers from Adelaide, by not staying overnight, they miss out on the stunning sunset and sunrise views of the lake.
“That’s where the idea for the Pink Lake Tiny House was born – to create a place where people could stay and enjoy the magic moments at the lake, where the range and intensity of colours really shine.”
There is plenty to see and do in the region, as the tiny house is ideally located for day trips to the food and wine region of Clare Valley and the scenic coastal scenery of Yorke Peninsula region around Moonta Bay and Wallaroo.
Rates start from A$290 (commissionable) per couple per night; a two night stay in the region is recommended. Private guided tours in an 8S Mercedes-Benz are also available, with two day/one night packages including accommodation in the Pink Lake Tiny House from A$975 per couple (commissionable). A second even larger tiny house has been designed and built and is expected to be available for bookings from late August 2021. It will feature a queen-sized bed downstairs and loft room upstairs.
