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!

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

Das Hideway von Lawrence und Kylie ist eine wirklich ausserordentlich tolle Unterkunft. Wunderschön gelegen, traumhafte Aussicht, ökologisch durchdacht, sehr ruhig und privat und das Bad im Freien bei einem Glas Wein ein must. Für Rückzug und Erholung ideal.

We had a wonderful couple of days at the housetruck as part of our honeymoon. It has a very peaceful setting with gorgeous views. Especially enjoyed our walk to Taupo point-most amazing and quiet beaches I’ve ever seen.

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!

The most amazing space we have every stayed at. We have stayed in a lot of air bnbs and this one is beyond all expectations Loved every minute. Could get used to that bay view while driving in! Comfy beds, great hot water and out side bath/shower. Even had a little friend visit us from the bush

Golden Bay Hideaway could not be more appropriately named. It's "off the beaten track" and that's the point! This is one of the best places we've ever stayed as it offers the perfect balance between seclusion and comfort. The area is magical to explore and the house truck has a very special energy and history that is a privilege to be apart of. We'll be back - again!

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.
