I own a beautiful mud-brick home amongst the leafy (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)s in Eltham, part of which has a self-contained studio apartment on the ground level to my split-level dwelling. It has it's own entry and parking space and is ideal for mature adults.

Guest access

You have your own independent apartment downstairs on the ground floor.
I live upstairs on the split level in the main house.
The mudbrick house has tiled floor so there are no movement/plumbing sounds that annoy.

Interaction with guests

I live here so any questions/needs can be seen to - no trouble at all.

Other things to note

Definitely not a party place.
Suits 'mature' adults on a mission,celebration,reunion,conference or biz.
Better still, suits anyone looking for a quiet place to catch up on a good sleep whilst in this big city!

There is a tranquil ambience here when the sunset streams throughout the studio of an evening. Frogs then begin to croak amongst the waterlilies outside the kitchen window and the resident Kookaburra retires from his watch. No smoking plse but if you have a dog without whom you can't live, it's okay to bring it too, I understand.

This place was the perfect set up for a quiet, romantic weekend away, with our pet dog. The space was cosy, eclectic, and homely. Montsalvat was nearby (and lovely!), and some nice nature tracks only a quick drive away.

Atika is a lovely host. Friendly and warm whilst also giving her guests space. The self contained pad she offers is in luscious bush surrounds, and beautifully crafted with a blend of modern and mudbrick. Set at the rear of her house it is a lovely private oasis.

A choice spot — very sweet, comfortable, private cottage. Great ambiance, well-appointed, clean, quiet, surrounded by beautiful native bush. We had a wonderful stay.

Atika made us feel very welcome! Everything was hassle free and the property so lovely- such a shame we couldn't stay longer!

Lecturer in Biodynamic Agriculture at Warranwood Steiner Teacher Training.
Recently returned to Melb after living in Tasmania where I restored a 20 roomed mansion called Malunnah into a gracious residency overlooking the seafront where the Ferry daily passed.
The surrounding garden grounds I developed biodynamically and welcomed WWOOFers to join me, learning another way to live sustainably
Now I enjoy 'talking the walk' whilst living in a native garden in the city.
I have travelled and lived for years in Switzerland and Munich and still feel the european in me despite the 50 odd years I have spent here.
