This beautiful eco friendly accommodation is more than what we imagined with ever changing views. It was hard getting the hang of not flushing the toilet but loved knowing this house is doing something great for Mother Earth. Star gazing at night in the outdoor bath is a must, however watch out for the odd friendly weka or possum. The location is a perfect gateway to Abel Tasman National Park along with Wainui Falls and many more beautiful sights. We will be back sometime soon.

The Little Greenie is beautiful inside and out, with amazing views and exquisite attention to detail! The outdoor bath tub was very romantic and perfect for our honeymoon. Location is great, as you can walk right out the driveway into trails of Abel Tasman National Park. Can’t wait to come back!

We spent 4 nights at the Little Greenie. It was very special, unique and inspiring for us. Highlights were the reliable warmth, the view out to the bay, the walks nearby and relaxing in the big red couches. Communication with Lawrence was excellent. Everything was as expected - exactly how it is described in the listing. Perfect for a relaxing holiday. Highly recommended!

An absolutely stunning spot and house to stay in! We loved our time at little greenie so much that we didn’t want to leave and can’t wait to come back. Unreal views, super warm in winter, great bird life listening and watching from the couch, stunning beaches nearby and an amazing example of eco living. Thanks!!

So beautiful and peaceful! We had a lovely stay at Little Greenie on our honeymoon. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, and waking up to that view everyday was a dream.

Outstanding views. Couldn't be more relaxing sitting in the arm chair or in the outside bath with my book and a glass of wine. Nice, warm well appointed Bach. Close to lots of fun Abel Tasman Park walks.

Little Greenie is a lovely place with fantastic views over the bay — so very peaceful and private - having a bath outside as the sun went down was amazing. Lawrence, his sons and Kylie have done a great job of setting up various type of green accommodation on the site including Little Greenie - really nice staying in such an Eco Friendly house — you will love it !

Parfaite retraite en pleine nature, intéressante découverte d'un concept d'habitation 100% écologique en totale autosuffisance énergétique, avec tout le confort et une vue époustouflante. Emplacement idéal pour découvrir le parc. Une petite perdrix fort sympathique vous tiendra compagnie autour de la maison en toute discrétion.

Absolutely loved our stay at the little Greenie house. The view is just amazing and the house is very private. Great place if you want to get away from busy life and just read, walk, relax and sit in the bath outside. It was hard to leave but we will be back very soon! Thank you!

Phenomenal eco designed house, with all the lush bits. That composting toilet is a revelation. The view to wake up to, with a few cameos of a friendly Weka, was stunning. An architecturally thoughtful house. Made the days and nights more comfortable and happy. Get there now!

A beautiful retreat in Golden Bay, just on the doorstep of Abel Tasman. Breathtaking views, unforgettable sunsets, and an all around stellar experience. The only downside for us, although forthright in the amenities shown on AirBnB, was that we had no mobile service, so we were fully disconnected from our daily routine. Of course this was found to be a blessing in the end and we do not mind slowing down and enjoying some of the finer things in life, my partner and I could have been better prepared for the weekend if we knew we would have a full disconnect from work and daily accouterments. We loved the space!! And it was a real inspiration to see what can be done in such a small space. All the best in the future for #Hideaway Bay
