Dusty Miller is a weatherboard 1940s cottage that's family friendly with a great relaxed vibe. It is close to public transport, grocery stores, parks, a cycle way and the beach. You’ll love Dusty because of the outdoor space, the light, the smell of the ocean and the bird calls every morning. My place is super suitable for couples and families, and sleeps 6, plus the 5 chooks in the backyard.

The space

Dusty Miller has a thriving herb garden and five precocious chooks to keep you fed with fresh eggs daily. Depending on the season, you can help yourself to whatever veggies are growing in the gardens.

Guest access

We have a small granny flat with its own private side access that is rented out. Backyard is shared, but huge so no worries about feeling cramped :)

Interaction with guests

Our granny-flat tenant, Andre, is an amiable guy that's happy to help with any emergencies or queries - he knows where all the best coffee spots and yoga studios are too! He also works quite a lot and is quite happy keeping to himself.

Other things to note

You'll need to collect the eggs from the chickens daily, and if you can't do this you'll need to let me know so I can organise the neighbours to do so.

This is a family home about ten minutes walk from the beach, very convenient for public transport including the free shuttle bus to the university (which takes only ten minutes). Supermarkets and other shops also located within walking distance. The home itself is a very comfortable 3-bedroom, 2 bath property with a lovely garden. Very grateful that they do all the recycling and composting and provide free eggs from their chooks. All mod-cons and a full pantry to cook up a storm. Gas heater in living-room works very well. One bathroom amazing, the other one a little tricky with hot-water supply.

Fabulous little place with an inspired interior with lots of vintage touches. The chickens were an extra special treat and the kids loved looking after them. A very relaxing place.

Response from Christina:
Thanks Tina! Sorry the cockatoos got at that grapefruit tree during your stay - what a mess they made! Glad you enjoyed the chookies and got some good relaxing in :) Peace!

A hidden gem in Wollongong, Fairy Meadow truly describes Christina's house. Close to the train station, supermarket and beach, Dusty Miller is the perfect beach house whether it is one week or a few days. Check-in, check-out and communication was super easy. Hanging out with the chickens during Easter in the huge backyard was lovely. House is spacious, big open kitchen area and decorated with taste. Highly recommend it, I'll be back!

Beautiful place, plenty of space, great location within walking distance to beach and shops. Chooks were cute and garden very relaxing to sit in. Christina was a pleasure to communicate with and was very accommodating with beds and special requests.

I'm a gypsy-turned-nester, who has found a little slice of coastal paradise in Fairy Meadow. An art teacher by profession, I absolutely love my students, my job and the flexibility it affords me to travel and renovate during school breaks. My partner and I are all for productive gardening and living with the smallest environmental footprint possible, and we're in the midst of building up a good lot of fruit trees and veggie patches.
