The Gunyah tiny home by Hauslein is a stunning example of minimalistic design and practical living. The name "Gunyah" translates to "house, hut, shelter" in the local aboriginal language, a fitting title for this cozy abode. Designed with short-term stays in mind, the Gunyah is an ideal retreat for family visits, get-togethers with friends, or as a charming Airbnb rental. Weighing under 3 tonnes, it's easily towable by most 4WD vehicles, making relocation a breeze.
Constructed on a durable, 5m x 2.5m galvanized heavy-duty trailer chassis, the Gunyah features two distinct layouts, each capable of comfortably accommodating 2-4 occupants within its 18 square meters of space. The termite-resistant timber frame is clad in a sleek, Trimdeck profile monument matte finish Colorbond, while flyscreens are fitted to all windows. The walls, ceiling, and floors are insulated with fiberglass earth wool and silver sarking to ensure a comfortable temperature year-round.
Inside, the Gunyah exudes warmth with its solid pine-paneled walls and cypress pine flooring and bench tops, which are finished in a natural tongue oil. Soft-close drawers and cupboards are found throughout the tiny home, offering an elegant touch.
The living area in the Gunyah offers enough space for a full-size, comfortable 3-seater couch, perfect for lounging or watching a large wall-mounted TV. The solid cypress pine bookshelf above the couch adds a touch of character and practicality to the space, ideal for displaying your favorite reads or decorative items.
The kitchen features a practical one-sided layout with ample storage. A cypress pine ladder leads up to the sleeping loft, while a comfortable breakfast bar provides a cozy spot for morning coffee. The large sink is equipped with a high tap and an innovative in-sink drainer, with enough room for a drawer dishwasher. A 2-burner gas stove is perfect for whipping up meals, and a space for a 124L bar fridge keeps your food and beverages cool. Modern black fixtures and cypress pine shelving add to the kitchen's contemporary aesthetic.
The Gunyah's compact bathroom is designed for efficiency without sacrificing comfort. The epoxy floor is both stylish and practical, while the traditional flush toilet (with composting option available) keeps things eco-friendly. The full-sized shower features a custom rod and high-quality curtain, avoiding the need for a glass wall and creating a more spacious feel. A vanity unit with a ceramic basin is accompanied by modern black fixtures, an extraction fan, and a small shelf. The LED-backlit mirror adds a touch of luxury to the space.
The standard loft space provides a cozy sleeping nook with a maximum loft height of 1.5m at the high end, perfectly sized for a double mattress. A Velux skylight window in the loft ceiling allows natural light to stream in, creating a serene atmosphere.
The Gunyah tiny home is a beautiful, compact retreat that merges simplicity with usability. Its versatile design is perfect for short stays, allowing guests to enjoy the peaceful surroundings and the comforts of a modern, stylish, and thoughtfully designed home.
The Gunyah is perfect for short-term stays, as it offers all the necessary amenities and features one would expect from a modern home, yet it remains easily relocatable. Its thoughtful design optimizes every inch of space without compromising on style or comfort. We wholeheartedly recommend the Gunyah for those seeking a versatile, eco-friendly, and contemporary retreat, whether for personal use or as an attractive Airbnb rental.
