What is the difference between a Cabin and a Granny Flat?


Transportable Homes Video – Tracey describes characteristics of Granny Flats and Cabins.




A cabin is small with limited facilities. Most commonly found in tourist parks, they normally have a small bathroom and toilet facilities. Cabins tend to be plain in design with a verandah at the front and a sliding door for access. The living area is small because cabins are designed for people to sleep in, instead of ‘live in’. Cabins ideally suit tourists, as they only require a comfortable place to refresh themselves and sleep after a big day of sight-seeing.

Granny Flats

Granny Flats on the other hand are a small complete home with all amenities inclusive. Usually one or two bedroom with a couple of external doors. Granny flats are merely a miniature version of a normal family home, just with smaller rooms; designed for one person, … usually a grandparent.

Today, granny flats are more popular as an extra source of income for people with room on their block of land. Granny flats are low in price but command the same rentals as normal units making them very affordable housing for tenants and a source of extra income for landlords.
