Eyre Way Maldhi
South Australian couple Tim and Amanda Hogg want to share a slice of remote Eyre Peninsula life with travellers who were keen to switch off their devices, slow down and enjoy the view. It started with their first property, Yambara; the second, Maldi, is the same size, but slightly moodier and darker – its name means “night sky”.
It comfortably sleeps four people in a king-sized bed and a double bed on the mezzanine level and the lounge also converts into a double bed. There’s a twin shower in a spacious bathroom and when you’re ready to face the elements there’s an outdoor fire pit where you can gaze up at the night sky.
In keeping with company’s eco ethos, the off-grid hut is solar powered, its rainwater is captured in Port Lincoln, and its grey water is removed sustainably. An architect designed the tiny abode to make the most of nature’s warming and cooling characteristics, with environmentally sustainable materials used throughout.
Maldhi overlooks the coastal cliffs of Sleaford Bay, close to white sandhills separating Port Lincoln National Park from the rugged Southern Ocean. There are clifftop coastal walks nearby and the place is surrounded by native vegetation and wildlife.
