Little House Republic - Vern's Ridge



If you want the feeling of the true Australian pioneering life but don’t like to camp, this luxury off-grid eco experience is for you. Peppermint trees line the sandy hills that lead to Vern’s Ridge, a designer tiny house situated on the rugged southern coastline of Western Australia.

From the moment you arrive, nature is at the forefront of your experience. Secluded in trees the tiny house nestles into the hills above an historic cottage on untouched pastoral country that has only seen family members for the last 130 years. Regeneratively grazed cattle wander the land keeping weeds under control and adding organic matter that ultimately helps keep carbon in the soil to fight climate change.

Large picture windows connect you to the outside throughout the home creating the sensation of sleeping and living in the trees. 

While you’re there, spend time photographing Australian animals including endangered black cockatoos, emus and kangaroos that roam the 750-hectare property freely. Sip wine, read books, hike to the beach and enjoy nature at it’s finest.

The property is surrounded by some of the most stunning countryside. Four-wheel drive only track lead to the best surfing and fishing beaches in Australia. Lake Jasper has been recognised as one of the five most important wetlands for waterbirds in the South West, and twitchers will be able to see many species here and is the perfect spot to a Kayak. Augusta, Margaret River and Nannup are also within an hour’s drive.

The Little House Republic team actively work to reduce energy use, minimise waste, nurture the land, encourage local producers and craftspeople, and work collaboratively with local communities, so you can feel good while having fun on holiday. No guilt, just relax and have fun!
