Less than 130 square feet of space lends itself nicely to this tiny house in the Yarra Valley of southeast Australia. Yarra is known for its incredible wine industry—thanks to its cool climate—and has been serving up delicious pours of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and bubbly since the 1800s.

Sip on your favorite glass (or two) while enjoying the views of local vineyards, thanks to large sun-soaked windows in this adorable home adorned with lovely succulents and plants and deep blue-colored decor. Two people fit comfortably in the home’s queen-size bed, but they can also take comfort in the small adjoining bathroom and shower.

Meals can be made (or bottles of wine opened) in the kitchen with a sink, refrigerator, and small stove. Plus, the owners equip the spot with necessities like tea, coffee, oil, and milk. Guests can even purchase luxury food and wine packages if they choose.

Dine inside the tiny cottage, relax outside on the porch, or sitting on a log by the fire pit, where couples can get lost in the seemingly infinite views and stunning star-filled sky. A hammock is also tied up nearby for extra respite, whether you’re traveling alone or with a partner.

The most popular nearby wineries are Dominique Portet and De Bortoli, but you can’t go wrong at any location. If wine is not your thing, opt for area breweries or artisan ciders. And if drinking in general is not your thing, fear not: there is plenty to do around the Yarra Valley, specifically in nearby Healesville where there are restaurants and shops for every traveler. There’s also the Healesville Sanctuary Zoo, featuring native Australian wildlife (including the Tasmanian Devil!). Outdoorsy enthusiasts can also enjoy hiking trails in the Yarra Ranges National Park and nature walks in the Maroondah Reservoir Park gardens.

For less than $150 a night, with a two-night minimum welcome to children and pets, what are you waiting for?
