    I am not sure of what to make of this. Looks to me, like they’re taking their darnest time to fix the place up. If it is, then the best of luck to them!

      Same confusion here. I hope these are “before” pictures.

        This is supposed to be a fun rustic-chic spot. I think it has been fixed up a lot. More “glamping” than a luxury resort, though, for sure 🙂 — Tiny House Talk Team

    Gosh, if she’d taken the time to tidy up the tram/train carriage she’d be able to get twice the money for the airbnb rentals.

    Classic short term savings for long term loss.

    Very sparce accommodation, but a cool campinmg style experience I suppose .. I too have a 1920″s W class tram sitting on a quarter acre block of land in a little country town in Victoria in a similar condition .. I’ve also got a 16ft 1970’s caravan in poor condition a, number of station wagons and a couple of porta loos .. I think I need a more appropriate location though .. Somewhere near the beach ..
