Five gorgeous tiny homes perfect for a completely private Valentine’s Day in NSW

Forget cards, jewellery, chocolates or flowers this Valentine’s Day. In 2021, a romantic staycation is quite possibly the best way to mark the occasion. Better still, Valentine’s Day falls on a Sunday this year, so there’s an ideal excuse to enjoy a weekend escape.

If you’re feeling like a tiny house escape this weekend, you’re right where you should be right now. Here are the top tiny house staycations to make your significant other swoon this Valentine’s Day weekend.

Tiny Away, Nanook

Set in the picturesque and tranquil Kanimbla Valley, soak in stunning views of the Blue Mountains escarpments and countryside from your tiny deck, enjoying the evening light with a glass of wine and spot kangaroos hopping by.

With the world-heritage Blue Mountains National Park on your doorstep, a burgeoning foodie scene and villages that echo a bygone era, the Blue Mountains is the perfect backdrop to a romantic weekend away.

Adventure through one of the many bushwalks on offer or embark on a picturesque scenic drive through the many historical towns. If foodie experiences are more your thing, make room for afternoon tea at the gorgeous Hyrdo Majestic Hotel or try a few local craft beers at Katoomba’s Mountain Culture Beer.

Address: Kanimbla, NSW 2790
Cost: from $169 per night
Distance from Sydney: 2.5 hours west of Sydney

Tiny Away, Maggie’s Farmstay

If unwinding in the lush countryside of one of NSW’s most famous wine region isn’t romantic, we don’t know what is. Drink in both the countryside views and world-class wine, and discover world-renowned restaurants and spas in one of the best natural landscapes Australia has to offer.

Relax and unwind with the company of farm animals overlooking beautiful mountain views all while being secluded in nature. No Wi-Fi or mobile reception adds to the seclusion.

To truly toast the romance, pack a champagne hamper and enjoy a picnic at the Hunter Valley Gardens. If you want to impress, experience a delicious, hatted restaurant, such as Muse Kitchen, Bistro Molines or Margan. If you would rather cook in your tiny home, pick up some local culinary secrets at the Hunter Valley Cooking School.

Address: Howes Valley, NSW 2330
Cost: from $179 per night
Distance from Sydney: 3 hours north of Sydney

Tiny Away, Kooranung

From outdoor adventures to foodie adventures, there’s so much to love about the Central Coast. Add white sandy beaches and sparkling bays, and you’ve got the perfect romantic getaway backdrop.

Your tiny stay is bordered by the Bouddi National Park with no passing traffic (unless you count the local wallabies and deer). Speaking of furry friends, you can meet the host’s farm animals, including friendly chickens, rabbits and horses.

The Central Coast is emerging as one of the state’s culinary stars – and the bar scene is also booming: say cheers to love at Margarita Daze in Umina Beach, Mumbo Jumbos and Rhonda’s in Terrigal, Frankie’s Rooftop in Woy Woy or The Savoy in Long Jetty.

Address: Empire Bay, NSW 2257
Cost: from $179 per night
Distance from Sydney: 90 minutes north of Sydney

Tiny Away, True Colours

Fresh seafood eats, laid-back coastal towns and world-famous surf breaks await you on the South Coast. It is easily one of Sydney’s favourite holiday destinations and the perfect place to treat yourself to a touch of romantic quiet.

A stone’s throw from the beautiful town of Berry, the tiny house is set on a 5-acre paradise where you will be surrounded by nature. There is always something happening in Berry – yoga workshops, author talks, cooking lessons, as well as the ever-popular country markets.

After a lazy Valentine’s Day breakfast at local favourite Salmon and Co., Seven Mile Beach is nearby for a dip in the crystal-clear ocean.

Address: Berry NSW 2535
Cost: from $179 per night
Distance from Sydney: 2 hours south of Sydney.

Tiny Away, St Albans

Situated on the sandstone hill within the ‘Forgotten Valley’ (Macdonald Valley) this tiny house sits on a 30-acre property, overlooking the farming land of the Hawkesbury. With no mobile phone reception in St Albans and no Wi-Fi in your tiny abode, it’s the perfect opportunity to escape and disconnect.

The Hawkesbury is best-known for its winding river from which the region gets its name. The third British settlement in Australia after Sydney and Parramatta, the Hawkesbury is full of colonial history. Make room for a hearty pub lunch at the 1836 Settlers Arms Inn St Albans, made of original convict sandstone. Or why not explore the much-loved Sunday markets in historical Windsor before eating your way along the Hawkesbury Harvest Farm Gate Trail.

Address: Saint Albans, NSW 2775
Cost: from $149 per night
Distance from Sydney: 90 minutes west of Sydney

For any bookings of the properties mentioned above you better haul yourself over to Tiny Away and book before Sunday rolls around.
