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!

To say this spot is incredible will be underselling it! The two nights spent at the house bus was amazing. The views, the friendly wildlife, the piece and quiet, the overall setting - it is by far the best place we have stayed at in NZ. Being locals, we get used to the beauty, but this place really shocked us back into just how amazing NZ (and its hospitality) can be. We will most certainly be returning in the future.

The house truck is really a very special and unique place to stay. The view is amazing and you can easily reach the most beautiful hiking tracks of Able Tasman. And of course the hot bath at night is just wonderful.

Since I booked months ago I have been looking forward to my stay and it didn't disappoint,from the moment you drive up the twisty track and suddenly emerge into a clearing with the house truck and a fabulous view before you.The thick bush around gives a feeling of complete seclusion making outdoor baths quite normal.The bunk beds are a challenge for the older visitors,I managed just.The sound system was great
