Such an amazing spot in Abel Tasman National Park. We spent three nights here, which was perfect. Outdoor bath, firewood stove, and cosy bed. Would recommend to anyone!

The tiny house truck was amazing! So much bigger inside than I expected and didn't find it cramped at all, i though it might be stressful cooking in such a small space but the layout worked great and everything we could have needed was provided. The outdoor bath and shower were so good! And the log burner kept us nice and cosy. It's quiet, secluded and there are so many beautiful things to see on your doorstep, I can't recommend this place enough for a relaxing getaway, we will definitely be back one day!

The description and pictures say it all. Really cool experience with good access to the Wainui side of the Abel Tasman. Stayed for three nights... can't wait for the next time ! Lawrence was extremely prompt with any questions I had.

The Amazing House Truck is exactly that- AMAZING! The location is exceptional- beautiful views, numerous types of native birds flying or wandering in and out and very private. The truck itself is cosy, very clean, we couldn't have wanted for more. The outside shower and bath made it that extra bit special- nothing like a cold beer in the sun, in a bath after a day out sight seeing.
