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.

Amazing house and location. Lawrence was very responsive to our questions and even drove us a wine bottle opener up the hill!
We had the best of times and have recommended it to all our friends. A wonderful place and beautifully done.
This place is so awesome and everyone should stay in a place like this in their lifetime! The views are unbeatable. All we could hear from the outside bath was the native birds calling from the surrounding forest. The house is absolutely gorgeous and we all went home planning our own eco-homes! Thanks very much for an awesome experience.
Fantastic place to stay. I spent a couple of nights here in the winter and coming from my draughty and cold house (average Kiwi home) I really appreciated the warmth and comfort of this eco-home. And the views are amazing. The kitchen is well equipped. Everything was so clean. I loved the outside bath. It was a novelty to stay somewhere so 'different'. I was very impressed and inspired to find out more about eco-homes. Well done Laurence you have created a gem here. I will definitely be back if I return to Golden Bay.
This is an exceptional place to stay. The view is second to none, the proximity to the Abel Tasman Park is ideal, the house itself is warm, elegant and welcoming. The inbuilt stereo system was an unexpected finishing touch that was greatly appreciated. We will certainly be back.
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!
