You won’t regret it, just do it. The weka and the outdoor bath were the best part. There’s a lot close by and you might not think but the house truck has got everything you need.

Gorgeous, unique place for our 2 night stay. Lovely experience. Private and peaceful spot. Excellent communication from hosts and easy check-in system. The outdoor bath was awesome, especially on the first night with clear skies showcasing a mass of stars!

If you're looking for somewhere that feels private and remote, this truck is spot on. It's interior is super cute and a lovely place to relax. The views of the bay are great. And it's perfectly located if you've just come off the Abel Tasman Great Walk. Happy days :)

If you are in need of a romantic and totally private and memorable experience the house bus will be that. The bus is beautifully restored and thoughtfully planned. The outdoor bath was a real highlight. Thankyou to our hosts for making it all possible.

Idyllic location & fantastic accommodation (even for a family with 2 teens!) If you're after an idyllic swimming spot as well, take a 30min walk out towards Taupo Point, at low-medium tide, for golden sand & turquoise sea.

The amazing house truck is just that, amazing! This was the best Airbnb experience we have had. The house truck has everything you need, a beautiful outdoor tub and shower and a cosy rustic interior with all the essentials. The location is just beautiful, 15 mins walk to the beach and the truck is situated on a little hill, overlooking wainui bay. We are already planning our return. Thanks again Lawrence and Kylie.
