I've had two consecutive long weekends so naturally I'm dreaming about going away again this weekend. Instead, I'm going back in time and sharing this cosy Airbnb studio in Sydney. I have a soft spot for tiny houses and this one even had a freshly baked birthday cake on arrival!
We've stayed in a few mini-houses through Airbnb, usually ones that've been built in backyards and I love seeing all the things you'd have in your own home whittled down to the essentials.
This one in Sydney's Marrickville was especially cute. It had a loft bedroom, a kitchen nook and a comfy mini lounge room. We stayed last year after our bucks and hens parties so that we could spend a few extra days in Sydney and get a headstart celebrating my 30th birthday.
As it turned out, our host was a food photographer and along with the white chocolate mud cake, there was also freshly baked sourdough and some raspberry meringues leftover from a shoot.
Here are two other tiny houses that people live in, they're both in Melbourne. Here's a garage that has been converted into a cosy home and a simple and functional apartment in the heart of the city.
If I was spending this weekend in Sydney, I would make a booking at this amazing pizza joint in Balmain (we went last weekend and loved it!) and make a stop at Cremeria de Luca in Five Dock immediately afterwards for really great gelato. Thanks to Amanda for the gelato tip-off!
