If you have explored our archives, you know that nothing gets me excited faster than modern minimalism. So, I was super thrilled when I discovered this amazing two-story minimalist shipping container house located in Litchfield, Australia.
Oh yeah—and it is an accommodation! So if you are traveling there, you can rent it for a night or two (or more, if you have the budget for it). Let’s take a look.
Here is the accommodation! Like many two-story shipping container houses, it features a “staggered” layout, where the two containers are perpendicular to each other. This makes it possible to situate part of the large patio underneath the upper story while the exposed part of the roof of the lower shipping container becomes a large deck.
This is “Cabin Two.” The same host also has a one-story “Cabin One.”
Describing the accommodation, the host writes, “Be immersed in the rugged beauty of our Northern bushland, from the luxury and comfort of this two-story (dressed up) shipping container. Open your eyes in the morning to a breathtaking escarpment of native bush. This makes the perfect space to come home to after exploring Litchfield’s waterfalls and attractions. This cabin is set on it’s own, with a short walk to Cabin 1 and the owners’ residence.”
While staying in this shipping container tiny house, you have a full kitchen at your disposal. There is hot water, a stove, a microwave, a fridge, and the basic pots, pans, dishes and cutlery that you need. Salt and pepper are available as well. Give cooking a try while you are staying in this tiny house so that you can find out what it is like preparing food in a smaller kitchen.
It is cool how the fridge and freezer stand in a compartment built into the wall to keep them out of the way. Storage cabinets are built-in around it. This configuration frees up more space in the kitchen in which to work.
A large, comfortable seating area with a TV awaits. Big glass doors ensure that you are not cut off from the beautiful great outdoors. Along with television, there is also WiFi.
This bathroom is amazing! There isn’t so much a shower ”stall” as simply a section of the room which is separated from the rest by glass so that you have all the room you could ask for. Its functional elegance fits in perfectly with the minimalism throughout the design of the accommodation.
Shampoo is provided in case you forget your own. But there is not a hair dryer, so you will need to remember to bring that.
Then again … how long is your hair going to stay dry when there are amazing spots nearby where you can swim?
Along with the kitchen and the basic dishes and cutlery the accommodation provides, there is also a BBQ grill outside you can use.
Bringing children with you? Supplies available include a high chair, black-out blinds, a cot, and toys and books for kids.
There is one bedroom with a queen size bed and common spaces which are equipped with two floor mattresses. Now for one of the most exciting things about the whole house …
Now that is a view! While the bedroom is fully enclosed, the glass walls make it feel almost like you are sleeping out on the deck!
The host writes, “Be surrounded by natural bushland, with birds and kangaroos for company, only minutes drive from waterfalls and rockpools.”
There is so much to see and do just within a short drive of your cabin.
Before you head out in the morning, enjoy the complimentary bacon and eggs provided by your host. There is also milk yogurt and “a treat for you in the refrigerator.”
If you want to book a stay at this cozy minimalist hideaway, you can do so for $200 per night as of the time of this writing. If you enjoyed this post, you also want to check out our post on Hideaway Litchfield Cabin One.
