About Kiera Poelsma

Hi there :) I'm a freelance artist, gardener and student. I enjoy cinema, making art, reading, drawing, building, dreaming, thinking outside the square, the winter fire, a pot of tea, spending time outside. I have a kitty cat who thinks he's the Fonz. We live a simple happy life in Hepburn.

Kiera Poelsma purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Kiera Poelsma chose Hepburn

When I came to this property, it was derelict, full of rubbish with a resident family of birds. A little old miner's cottage, with a checkered history. Rumours it was once home to a Joss House are supported by Chinese coins and broken crockery found whenever I dig up the garden. Breakneck Gorge, which is to the back of the property, was named back when the football oval was a race track. One of the horses bolted & plunged its jockey over the edge & into history. A dozen years & a lot of work has seen this property, still known locally as 'Chum's place' transform into Vera's Cottage, creative & stand out guest accommodation. If you appreciate history, diversity & the arts, see you at Vera's :)

What makes this cottage unique

Both the feel & style of Vera's is Unique. No frilly doilies or salmon pink walls here! Just a relaxed, creative & comfortable vibe with a funky & quirky fit out. Why not book accommodation with a difference... experience something unique. Experience Vera's!!
