Take a vacation in Kiwi Greenie and enjoy a future-thinking holiday house that catches all the afternoon sun, stores it, and maintains a comfortable temperature at any time of year.
Kiwi Greenie may appear to be just another modern, professionally finished house with stunning views in a beautiful location. Of course everyone will notice some differences sooner or later, but those interested in environmental technology and smart building will find the differences go right down to the foundations.
Kiwi Greenie is designed with four major principles in mind: Energy efficiency, low maintenance/longevity, ease of construction and value for money. It takes eco-home design a step further and improves on the award-winning foundation achieved in Little Greenie. It may be modern, but it’s not about frills or fashion; and while it is unashamedly utilitarian, it’s definitely not drab or boring. It's a living, breathing home.
Take a moment… breathe out… and breathe in the quiet.
Over the water in winter and the mountains in summer. The weather doesn't matter, it'll be just perfect.
Every guest loves our outdoor baths - what's not to love? Steaming hot water, magical views and a quiet moment to just be.
The clear waters around Wainui Bay are ideal for taking a dip. Or you can simply explore the shoreline.
A two hour walk along the coastline from Wainui Bay is Taupo Point pa. Evening picnics at Taupo Point are very special. The beach glows under the fading evening light and the kanuka trees turn a rich, bronze colour which contrasts with the emerald colour of the sea.
Just five minutes from Golden Bay Hideaway. This is one of Golden Bay's must-do short walks. A stunning native bush track along the Wainui River leads to Wainui Falls, the largest falls in Golden Bay - pack for a picnic and a swim.
Walk the remote northern section of the famous Abel Tasman Coast Track from Totaranui back to Golden Bay Hideaway at Wainui. You'll experience the wild beauty, golden sand beaches and clear waters - without the crowds you might encounter further south. It is a beautiful walk!
Having consistent north and north-westerly winds in the main season (September to December) and the still turquoise waters in the lagoon makes it a very attractive spot for freestyle. You can have all conditions in one day, as when the tide goes out there are some nice waves on the main outer beach.
The Abel Tasman National park is a world renowned sea kayaking destination. Golden Bay Hideaway is a perfectly positioned at the northern end of the national park to explore the many beaches, coves and headlands.
There are many days with still waters from December on, and that makes SUPping an awesome experience here. Easily access the many islands and the northern part of the Abel Tasman National Park, exploring its beautiful flora and fauna.
On-site at Golden Bay Hideaway is the best downhill bike park and jumps in the top of the south island. Lovingly crafted by Amani McIntyre. Bring your bike and get professional instruction.
Abel Tasman National Park is loved for its golden beaches, sculptured granite cliffs, and world-famous Abel Tasman Coast Track. With a mild climate and easy access its a good place to visit at any time of the year.
A destination for travellers from around the world, Golden Bay's attraction lies in its remoteness and proximity to internationally significant conservation areas, such as Farewell Spit, Kahurangi National Park and Te Waikoropupu Springs. This plus its relaxed festival atmosphere and friendly culture mean that the population triples during the holiday summer season.

The views from here are magical! very special place.
A very special house in a very special place. A unique opportunity to experience what a very Eco House is like to live in. Very warm and an outdoor bath is fascinating too.
Great place in a great location
Beautiful views and a beautiful area to stay in. Understand eco-toilet means ‘long drop’ toilet. Bed linen and pillows need replacing.
Great, very clean house with everything you need. Awesome view! We had such a great time in the jungle. When you go there, bring everything you need from the supermarket in Takaka (25min) and you don’t want to leave anymore. Barbecue outside, big kittchen, perfect to relax!
Great retreat, you literally can’t see another person from the eco lodge, all you can hear is the wildlife!
Spacious, clean, comfortable and very quiet ecohouse in the hills with a gorgeous view over Wanui bay. We'd love to come back.
We had a great stay at the Kiwi Greenie while exploring the Golden Bay area. The place was comfortable, clean, and had a spectacular view of Wainui Bay. We especially enjoyed the hot bath after a long day hike along the Abel Tasman Track. We recommend staying here!
Probably the best views I've ever had from a place I've stayed. The house itself is thoughtfully designed, stylish, modern, and clean.
Utterly spectacular! Place is amazing, all you hope it might be & so much more. Area is beautiful & easy to explore. Don’t hesitate for a second. Just book it.
Our stay was absolutely amazing. This was our first time staying in a highly eco-friendly home but I’m glad that didn’t stop us from booking the place. The views were amazing and the bathtub outside brought an interesting experience. Lawrence and Kylie gave us great information before we came and I’m glad they did because we stopped in town at the store, as suggested, and didn’t have to worry about leaving the house and could just relax. Would definitely recommend staying at the Kiwi Greenie!
The view is amazing and the house is equipped with everything you need. We cooked and enjoyed dinner with the fantastic view. The communication was great and we really relaxed in the house. Thanks for the great time and the opportunity to enjoy the view. If you are nearby you have to book. It’s amazing.
Kiwi greenie was a great place to stay for a few days of relaxing and exploring the Abel Tasman area. We particularly enjoyed the stunning view from the outdoor bath and the friendly wekas. The eco-house was also an inspiration for living greener.
We arrived on a stormy night but still managed a beer in the outside bath. Kiwi Greenie is a delightful place in a truly spectacular and unspoiled location. A perfect place to recharge your batteries. The composting toilet was a challenge at first but the fact it was odour free made us all converts. Recommend the Totaranui - Wanui day walk and half day's kayaking with Golden Bay Kayaks. This all too brief 3 night stay is sure to be the highlight of our NZ adventure. Thank You
What a magnificent plot of paradise, the priceless morning view across Wainui Bay and to the far shores of Golden Bay. The house and amenities are fabulously finished, everything you'll need for a chance to switch off and get away from the noise and rush of life...and who can say no to a soak in the outdoor bath with a drink. The specifics of the building make for a light and cosy home, you just have to try it for yourself to properly appreciate the smarts that went into the construction and finishing of Kiwi Greenie. We loved the feeling of remoteness, the privacy of the site even though it was an easy enough drive to get back to Takaka and the rest of Golden Bay when needed. We were a stone's throw from the Abel Tasman Park and numerous attractions - take note of the hosts recommendations from their listing.
The house and the view are true wonders! A serene escape with nature and ocean surrounding the house! They are creating something so magical with their green energy systems and composting. The space is super hip, but bring CDs or a usb jack hook up if you want music. No screens or WiFi. The underground heating system kept the place comfortable throughout the day. And while the kitchen isn’t totally stocked, you can make it work! The only other thing to note is the shower floods the bathroom a bit. We were greeted upon arrival and given hike recommendations. So kind and helpful.
It was an amazing place to stay.. We loved every minute of it.. That view!!! We loved the outside tub and also enjoyed reading about the history of the bay. Hope to be back someday and will definitely recommend to others. (have done already)
This is such a dreamy spot, if you’re looking at staying anywhere from Nelson to Golden Bay look no further! It was so peaceful and relaxing and truly a great retreat without being that far away from a few shops. The local area is just stunning with lots of great walks nearby. A one of a kind place!
Great stay with a wonderful hike locally. Got great advice for the different options for what we wanted hiking. check in was easy and boy was it isolated. Could see the stars and listen to the birds. Exactly what we wanted :)
One the few gems one can find in this busy world. The perfect get away for switch off while having a great time and feeling up with good memories, food, fishing and Kiwi hospitality.
