We loved how staying in the house truck, it was so peaceful and quiet. Great to have a couple of nights to rest and catch up after over a week of travelling around. Really well equipped with everything you need. Such a comfy and cosy bed!

Our stay in the truck was truly amazing, one of the most romantic parts in our trip in NZ. We loved the totally secluded and surrounded by nature place. We really enjoyed the hot tube bath outside at sunset, was really cool! There was everything needed inside the truck as for sleeping, cooking etc so really not much to worry about! Just still a bit impressed by the compost toilet, but there is always a first time lol. We definitely recommend staying at this place if you are a couple and want to spend some time with each other, have a romantic evening etc. was really a highlight of our trip!
