Shacky are pint-sized, solar-powered dwellings situated on picturesque private properties, surrounded by stunning countryside and absolutely no mobile reception. In other words, stay at one of these and you’ll have no choice but to switch off. That way, you can focus on what matters — lazing about in a queen-sized bed, finding total relaxation under a high-pressure shower and, on cold nights, snuggling up next to a pot-bellied stove. Should you feel peckish, your hosts — who live on the property, but well out of sight — will organise a feast of local produce. There are just three properties so far; one on an olive grove in the Victorian High Country, another on a cattle farm in the Yarra Valley, and one located in 100 acres of bushland in the Grampians.
