Still House by Christian White & Summer DeRoche, is an audible original I found on Audible Plus. Narrated by Luke Arnold & Sibylla Budd, this twisty horror was the perfect listen on a cold winter’s night. You’ll want to curl up by the fire and discover what happened to the tenants of the rental home along the Balarang waterways.

Situated in a beautiful setting abutting the Balarang waterways and located on an acre of natural bushland, this three-bedroom country home is full of promise, character and potential. Featuring private access to the many splendours of Balarang Creek, this idyllic property is perfect for anyone seeking fresh air and serenity.

Nostalgic for childhood summers a world away from his manic Melbourne life, Dave Johnson purchases a secluded house in a postcard-perfect coastal town. A savvy investment, he convinces his wife. One year on, and his seaside dream has turned into one big headache, with his tenants not paying rent, and now simply vanishing into thin air, leaving all their belongings behind. Summoned back to the house to inspect the abandoned property, Dave and his wife Lisa become trapped in the isolated spot after their car breaks down. Spooked and alone, they become lured into investigating what really happened to their mysterious tenants.


Dave Johnson purchases a secluded house in a postcard-perfect coastal town despite his wife Lisa’s protest. What should have given them income as an investment property has turned into a bit of a nightmare. With fires, and other issues damping the market, their property manager convinced them to accept a long-term rental. Only the tenants stopped paying. When their manager finally gets an eviction notice, she discovers the tenants are gone…only it’s odd. She recommends Dave & Lisa come see for themselves.

The tale that unfolds was creeptastic as Dave & Lisa find themselves trapped at the rental when their car battery dies. The events that transpire will have you gripping your blanket as you listen. Plenty of twists and spooky happens give way to a terrifying and realistic tale.

Luke Arnold & Sibylla Budd narrate and brought both Dave and Lisa to life while enhancing the atmospheric tale and frantic emotions.

If you are looking for a good thriller with things that go bump in the night, you’ll want to grab your earbuds and listen to this novella.
