This stay was an all time favourite. The location was second to none, there was an abundance of incredible bushwalking, it was super cosy and the bathtub was impossible to get out of. 10/10

The House truck was a lovely place to stay for a few nights. Beautiful location, very relaxing! The outdoor bath was a definite highlight. Would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing few nights in Golden Bay

The TruckHome is a wonderful place to spend sometime while exploring Golden Bay. About 20 minutes from Pohara, and another 10 from Takaka, there's a lot to do in the area for those who love being outside. Even in early winter, the home was comfortable, cosy and warm. And the outdoor shower/bath was great - a bath under the stars is a rare opportunity not to be missed!

We had an amazing stay at the truck house! Very cozy and everything has been well thought of in this place. Thanks to the people that dreamed of this project and made it happen. One of the most fabulous and original accommodations we ever stayed in. The eco friendly initiatives are a plus too!
