If you want to enjoy the still winter days in Golden Bay, this holiday house catches all the afternoon sun, stores it, and maintains a comfortable temperature.
Little 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.
Little Greenie is designed with four major principles in mind: Energy efficiency, low maintenance/longevity, ease of construction and value for money. 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.

All prices are for 2 people (shared bed) and are per night. Sleeps a maximum of two people.
We've deliberately kept the nightly price as low as possible so more people can experience our eco-house concept.
Superb location and views..
Such a stunning place in a beautiful part of the world. The bath was a beautiful way to relax on an evening and the eco aspects of the property were great! Would recommend for anyone to stay here! It's a gorgeous area so definitely stay for more than one night! We wish we could of stayed longer!
Little Greenie is a real gem. We stayed a whole week which allowed us to soak up the extraordinary views, get to know the resident wildlife, and watch the tide ebb and flow. This is not a place for those who cannot entertain themselves as it is a 30 minute drive to Takaka along a scenic, but small and winding road. We enjoyed the outdoor bathtub and made most meals for ourselves. The kitchen is well equipped. The bed is comfortable and large. Do not have any qualms about the composting toilet. It works perfectly and truly has no smell whatsoever. There is no WiFi, but you can get cell signal, though occasionally it is a bit spotty. There are some hiking tracks you can do nearby, as well as the start of the Abel Tasman Great Walk. As it is a bit remote, it makes exploring the rest of Golden Bay more time consuming. However, for a private, secluded experience, with a view to die for, it can't be beat. Lovely place!
This is the most amazing place for a private getaway. Nestled in a beautiful part of New Zealand, friendly hosts. The house itself is simple but feels spacious and luxurious. Very inspiring design. There are some lovely walks to do in the area ; we enjoyed the wainui falls walk and one to Taupo point. We would love to return; might fly instead of drive next time !
This property is absolutely incredible. It's so secluded and incredibly romantic. The view is spectacular, and we were the only ones on the beaches. Good to know that it's a ways from the nearest airport in Nelson (2 hours), and the only towns nearby are tiny. Absolutely perfect for a romantic getaway.
