A comfortable and beautiful eco passive straw bale & mud brick haven. Warm in winter and cool in summer, this house is built for all seasons and is a pleasure to be in. For added comfort there is cooling upstairs and a wood burner downstairs. With 6 generous bedrooms and 2 lounge areas, 1 upstairs and 1 downstairs, the house can accommodate 10 guests, including children. The beds are: 3 Queen, 2 double and 2 single, with room to spare. Set on a couple of acres, Casa Abierta is perfect for a large group of friends, or family gatherings. With an open plan large kitchen and dining area, connected to the lounge space, you can relax inside while you watch the children outside ... or go enjoy the garden, with its Silver Birches, Maples and Manchurian Pears. The property has easy access to walking paths in Blue Gum Gully.

The Location

Stanley village is just over 8 kms from historic Beechworth, in NE Victoria. This is orchard country, known for fine food and wine, walking, cycling and mountain bike riding. Casa Abierta is on the outskirts of Stanley, within reach of the local pub and other local curiosities, either by foot, bike or car. Come and experience slow living in a beautiful natural environment. A place to unwind and share time with loved ones.

Things to do

Borrow a book. Play hide and seek, or a game of croquet or badminton outside. Throw a frisbee, kick a ball or play boules in front of the shed. If you are lucky you might chance upon a Tawny Frogmouth, Koala or local Wallaby. There are usually Crimson Rosellas, Kookaburras, Sugar Gliders, Wood Ducks and Frogs. At night there are Boobook Owls. Bring your bikes if you like cycling, and walking shoes to explore suggested walking routes. A 5 minute potter to the Stanley oval and tennis courts, and a 10 minute stroll to the Stanley Pub, for family or fine dining. For cafes, shops and a variety of restaurants, venture 10 minutes by car to Beechworth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great place for family gathering There were 7 at the house and there was ample space. It was my mother in laws 96th birthday at the house and very accommodating for elderly and the young. The house was very clean and all the facilities from kitchen to bathroom and linen all high standard. Pet friendly - Although our little dog was not well, he enjoyed his little short walks around the property. Chickens - fresh eggs for all to enjoy. Communication with Helen and Nic was excellent. They respond to your inquires promptly and was very accommodating to our needs. We would definitely stay there again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Hidden Getaway!! Casa Abierta was a gorgeous home with so much character and warmth to it!! It was a perfect place for a girls weekend and we enjoyed every moment of it, especially the long chats and wines in front of the open fire. Would definitely recommend this beautiful house if you are looking for a relaxing getaway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely country retreat Our 5 couples thoroughly enjoyed staying at Casa Abierta. The huge kitchen/living room area is well-equipped for keen cooks, & no-one was under anyone else's feet. A range of condiments are provided by the kindly owner. Our scraps went to the chooks, who rewarded us daily with fresh eggs. We were totally comfortable and the surroundings are superb. It is abut 8 km from Beechworth, and a 10 minute walk to the Stanley pub.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fulfilled all the promises We were looking for a quiet location with lots to do locally and space for 2 grandparents, 2 kids and 2 dogs (plus Mum and Dad!) - couldn't have been better. The house was wonderful and Grandad was inspired by the eco nature of the build (and the local pub!). The kids loved croquet and the surrounding village, the dogs loved the freedom! I have rented 12+ properties now, all very good but this was one of the best! We actually stayed in Jan 2016 but unfortunately Stayz website has not been updated and we can only put 2015 in!
