How would you describe Walkerville Shack in a nutshell?
Walkerville Shack is a unique vacation rental in the lush farmlands of South Gippsland, just two house south of Melbourne in south-eastern Australia. Think of a large shack that was built from recycled materials, such as timber and tin. It blends modern Japanese-influenced architecture with rustic country retreat, creating a charming and bespoke vacation home with space for up to six guests. The house sits on five private acres of land and is surrounded by wildlife and nature.
Tell us a bit about the history of your holiday retreat please.
Jim, the original owner, searched the Promontory Coast thoroughly to find a secluded sanctuary, in which to build his dream home. For years he lived in a tent, almost recluse as he painstakingly built the house. He took the time to build everything, from ladders to the bathroom cabinet. You can see the care in every piece of woodwork, the choice of recycled materials and the unique design. Everything has a meaning.
