About Kim Kleinitz
As hosts of The Folly, we live close by so can be on-hand if you need us throughout your stay. Stephen grew up in Nungurner, and we are now lucky enough to be raising our 3 kids on the family farm. We own and manage a number of holiday properties in Nungurner so are experienced hosts, committed to ensuring you have a wonderful stay.
Why Kim Kleinitz chose Nungurner
The Folly has recently been lovingly built by its owners, whose careers have now taken them onto a new adventure. They have entrusted us to share their beautiful home with visitors seeking a rare glimpse into living "off-grid". The Folly is breathtaking in its design and architecture, and beautiful on the inside and out. It's a space that will wow you on arrival, and that you'll find hard to leave (but hopefully easy to return to!).
What makes this House unique
Living "off-grid' simply requires a change in mind-set. The Folly has been designed to be totally independent of any of the big power companies. The major change is that you use the power for items such as the washing machine and dishwasher when the sun is shining – this is when the batteries are being charged by the sun free of charge! It’s not difficult once you make this simple change in the way you think about power usage. Just think of it this way …. If you were going on a camping holiday, you would go prepared for that type of outdoor experience. It’s the same at The Folly. If you are expecting a resort experience with unlimited power and water, The Folly is not going to be for you. If you are looking to experience something that most people would rarely have the opportunity to be part of, then you are going to love The Folly. The owners have put together a guide to help guests make smart energy decisions, which can be found in the property on arrival.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:

Really lovely house in a beautiful location.
A great place to stay and very good for dogs. Secure garden. Very comfortable for two adults. Lovely local walks and easy reach of Lakes Entrance by car.
Lovely Barn Like Homestay
Fantastic rural home off grid with loads of charm. Pet friendly and friendly community when walking dogs. Great base for Lakes Entrance and surrounding areas.
Great for family & pets
Wonderful to have such a high standard accomodation to share with family and pets. The off grid nature of the home was great to generate discussions with kids and educate them on sustainable living.
Pastoral ‘Luxe Getaway
Thoroughly enjoyed our Folly accomodations! Kim is the consummate host, providing informative and current rental instructions, travel ideas, as well as making herself personally available -need be. A bottle of local wine was a lovely touch, making us feel at home! This house is newly constructed in a most unique manner-arcitecturally stunning. It is situated amid green, rolling hills; punctuated with the sounds of black cattle lowing quietly, incredible sunrises, and the Milky Way bursting into view on cloudless nights. The furnishings are top notch, as are the comfotable beds and associated linens. Explore the Gippsland countryside, enjoy water sports and nature’s bounty by day -quick getaways from this perfectly situated “green off-grid” house! For this family and our dog, this was the perfect long-weekend getaway from the city. Great internet connectivity and a “smart” TV...technology accoutrements that are so crucial to a successful vacay in this day and age! The Folly provided the base for an unforgettable stay.
Thank you so much for this incredible review Mary! You have highlighted so many wonderful aspects of this unique property, which I'm sure other folks will find helpful. It certainly highlights that you can live 'off-grid' whilst still enjoying life's little luxuries. We might need to add you to our Marketing team!
