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.

A great clean place with spectacular views and great hiking a few kilometers away.
Wonderful place. Secluded and with a great view. The outdoor hot tub was fantastic. The compost toilet took a little getting used to - but nice to know how much water it's saving. Great experience.
Beautiful location! Could sit and stare at that view all day! Such a warm cosy house!!
My children and I spent three lovely nights at Kiwi Greenie. What an awesome and truly unique experience! The house is at the very top of the hill which gives you a nice view on Golden Bay and you can even enjoy the view from the bath tub outside (which we enjoyed even in winter). The house was always really nice and warm and it was probably the warmest house we have found in New Zealand so far. The drive way is a little adventurous but the toilet is totally worth it (you'll figure that out once you get there ;)). We will definitely stay here again!
What a fantastic place to stay at! We couldn't believe how warm the house stayed during winter, never saw it under 29 degrees. Throw in a beautiful view, comfy bed and the outdoor bath and it's a winner. Communication with Lawrence was easy and when we had a problem they were quick to resolve it for us.
Amazing house and location. Lawrence was very responsive to our questions and even drove us a wine bottle opener up the hill!
