We loved staying in the truck, beautiful views and nature and the truck is awesome! Great location for Abel Tasman walks and for bird life, the resident weka was perfect.

You start to wonder where you are heading on the trip to Lawrence housetruck, but the location is a wonderful surprise! Stunning views across Golden Bay in a secluded & peaceful setting. The housetruck is a quirky, comfortable & fun stay, with all the basic needs.

We had such a good time, although too brief. Lawrence is a great host and very helpful. We got some great tips from him. We were pumped to have breakfast each morning with the resident weka too!

Incredible location. Superb walks near by, plenty of fishing and swimming. A very special place. The house truck was just magical. Such a short drive from Nelson to get to this paradise. We will be returning!

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.

Wow! The house truck experience was truly amazing - incredible location, brilliant facilities, attention to detail and cleanliness of the highest standard. I absolutely love Lawrence's "Golden Bay Hideaway" - total value for money, guaranteed privacy (minus the visiting weka!) and a location most would only dream of. Thanks for another wonderful stay - highly recommended!

My partner and I had an awesome weekend staying on the house truck. It was clean, cosey and warm. The plot of land was private and you could see some truly spectacular sunsets. I would not hesitate to stay there again or recommend to friends. Thank you Lawrence and the team for a providing a great weekend away.

Our hosts met us when we arrived and gave us the low-down on everything. We were also greeted with a warm interior as the heater had been turned on before we arrived and for that we were grateful. We had everything we could have needed. Linens and towels were provided. There was a sound system and CDs provided. The kitchen was fully equipped. Perfect!

Great place to stay on the coldest night of Winter so far! Welcomed by a toasty heated truck. The outdoor bath was fantastic even in the cold with loads of steaming hot water.

This was easily the most memorable accomodation I booked so far! The house truck is totally amazing and having an outdoor shower with this view of paradise is hard to top! Im almost reluctant to write this review because Id love this to be a secret. Cant wait to come back here and try all the other accomodation options of Lawrence!

We had such a wonderful 5 days in this housetruck. It is beautifully kept, has everything you need and is in a stunning setting. Particularly enjoyed the outdoor bath and the morning visits from the Weka's. Private and secure but with friendly hosts that are contactable when you need them. Couldn't recommend it more.

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!

Such a unique, wonderful spot. Absolutely one of the highlights of our trip. Gorgeous location. The gypsy truck was a dream come true. I don't believe I've ever seen so many stars in my life. Make sure to take an outdoor bath, hike to Wainui Falls, and grab a coffee at the nearby pizza cafe on top of the world.

Stayed here with the family, and it was amazing. The house truck is well kitted out and has everything you need, location is great, sand flies not so great. We all loved it though.

We loved staying in the house truck. It was comfortable and all the details were so interesting. The view was gorgeous and the outdoor shower/bath was a highlight. There's tons of privacy. We didn't actually meet Lawrence, but Jade was there to greet us and show us around. I would definitely recommend staying here.

We had the most incredible stay at the house truck - it was far more than we could ever have imagined & completely exceeded our expectations - highly recommend! The outdoor bath with a wine was incredible, as was an outdoor shower every day. Kitchen was well equipped and bed super comfy, even the compost toilet was by far the cleanest we had come across. Lawrence was an awesome host - came by to make sure we were all set up but gave us complete privacy. Such a beautiful and peaceful spot - the only other creature you'll encounter there will be the friendly wekas! Highly recommend for anyone looking to get away and find something super unique!

We loved our stay here during our honeymoon! The hot "tub" was great and an awesome experience in itself and we woke up to a rainbow on our second day after a beautiful rain. The wood stove, music, and quiet location made this the perfect honeymoon winter getaway! We highly recommend it!!!

The house truck was definitively a great experience. Totally diferent from every other experience. It was such a cozy place to stay, with so many details inside. The compost toilette surprised us a lot… it doesn't smell! The last day we tried the shower -weather was rainy- and it would have been a mistake not to do it - phantastic! And overall, the truck was really tidy. Definitively we woul recomend this place.

The house truck was an amazing experience - one we'll remember for a long time! Unfortunately we couldn't have picked a worse day weather-wise, but I can imagine how beautiful the view would be on a clear day. We were warm and comfortable though, and very impressed with the Eco-friendly facilities. We'd love to stay here again.
