House Truck is a lovingly restored and beautifully presented old house truck with fantastic sea and mountain views in a private bush location. This fully equipped wagon is a cosy sanctuary to restore your pioneer spirit.
A wood fire keeps the beautifully crafted kauri and oak timber interior warm on cooler days. This is the ideal place for a couple to get away from the hustle of daily life. Even in stormy nights staying in this house truck is a comfortable experience.
There is plenty of room for parking or an extra tent and the generous surroundings are all yours.
Take a moment… breathe out… and breathe in the quiet.
Over the water in winter and the mountains in summer. The weather doesn't matter, it'll be just perfect.
Every guest loves our outdoor baths - what's not to love? Steaming hot water, magical views and a quiet moment to just be.
The clear waters around Wainui Bay are ideal for taking a dip. Or you can simply explore the shoreline.
A two hour walk along the coastline from Wainui Bay is Taupo Point pa. Evening picnics at Taupo Point are very special. The beach glows under the fading evening light and the kanuka trees turn a rich, bronze colour which contrasts with the emerald colour of the sea.
Just five minutes from Golden Bay Hideaway. This is one of Golden Bay's must-do short walks. A stunning native bush track along the Wainui River leads to Wainui Falls, the largest falls in Golden Bay - pack for a picnic and a swim.
Walk the remote northern section of the famous Abel Tasman Coast Track from Totaranui back to Golden Bay Hideaway at Wainui. You'll experience the wild beauty, golden sand beaches and clear waters - without the crowds you might encounter further south. It is a beautiful walk!
Having consistent north and north-westerly winds in the main season (September to December) and the still turquoise waters in the lagoon makes it a very attractive spot for freestyle. You can have all conditions in one day, as when the tide goes out there are some nice waves on the main outer beach.
The Abel Tasman National park is a world renowned sea kayaking destination. Golden Bay Hideaway is a perfectly positioned at the northern end of the national park to explore the many beaches, coves and headlands.
There are many days with still waters from December on, and that makes SUPping an awesome experience here. Easily access the many islands and the northern part of the Abel Tasman National Park, exploring its beautiful flora and fauna.
On-site at Golden Bay Hideaway is the best downhill bike park and jumps in the top of the south island. Lovingly crafted by Amani McIntyre. Bring your bike and get professional instruction.
Abel Tasman National Park is loved for its golden beaches, sculptured granite cliffs, and world-famous Abel Tasman Coast Track. With a mild climate and easy access its a good place to visit at any time of the year.
A destination for travellers from around the world, Golden Bay's attraction lies in its remoteness and proximity to internationally significant conservation areas, such as Farewell Spit, Kahurangi National Park and Te Waikoropupu Springs. This plus its relaxed festival atmosphere and friendly culture mean that the population triples during the holiday summer season.

Great location although I recommend driving to it in daylight. Kids loved the bath and beds, I would have appreciated a few extra blankets to sit outside.
This was a very unique place! Location was amazing
One of the best Airbnb's in New Zealand. Amazing scenery and amazing facilities.
The fireplace and outside bath are a winner winner chicken dinner. The view was private and peaceful. The playhouse type bedding is gorgeous and the truck is warm and inviting. The owners are great at accommodating to your needs efficiently and the cleanliness of the place was bang on!! :)
Favorite spot on the planet. I’ll be back!
Perfection. Words can’t rate this highly enough.
The housetruck exceeded our every expectation. Its just wonderful. A must if you're ever close by.
We came to stay at the House Truck as a 40th birthday treat for my husband - a sneaky weekend away from the kids - and it was absolutely perfect. Totally secluded, with views to die for, but close enough to civilisation that we were able to pick up a takeaway pizza and bring it back to eat while it was still hot... would absolutely recommend it. The outside bath was amazing too! We are desperate to go back already.
Le truck house est très rustique, mais si chaleureux avec une vue magnifique sur Wainui Bay. C'est un très bel endroit pour se couper de sa routine et se rapprocher de la nature.
We loved the house truck! The location is beautiful and close to amazing walking tracks. The space has everything you need plus a tub. Thank you!
Amazing place to stay in the hills of Wainui Bay, tucked away up the hill in a private setting with a beautiful outside bath/shower surrounded by beautiful nature. Gorgeous housetruck beautifully crafted by Lawrence. A BnB stay which you wont forget. Loved it .Wish we could have stayed longer!
Thank you Lawrence and Kylie for letting us stay in your lovely, unique and cool house truck. My son loved the outdoor bath, had an awesome and relaxing stay. We will definitely come back for another adventure. ❤
Wir waren nicht die richtigen Gäste für diese Unterkunft
Votre endroit est vraiment spécial et unique, on est contents d’être allés. Tranquillité extraordinaire!!!!
Most beautiful place. We loved the open air bath. The truck has everything you will need.
A cosy stay for the four of us. Great fun, superb location and so chilled.
We really loved our stay in this wonderful place with this beautiful view. I celebrated my 40th birthday there in family and it was perfect. We loved the cosy house truck and the little things that we can find inside. The girls loved the Lego bag and the bath outside. We feel the nature everywhere and it was so nice to meet wekas. Thank you so much. Wonderfull memories in our world trip. It was very hard to leave this place and we wish we can come back soon.
This was an amazing Airbnb! The space was exactly and described and better. The outdoor bath was a big highlight and prompt responses from the hosts with messages. Highly recommend!
As unique as it gets, completely fitting for Golden Bay's granola scene ... had a nice time.

We loved the house truck! It was a bit of an adjustment at first - Dad a bit skeptical of the composting toilet and ladders to the bed - but once we sat down and enjoyed the view it took all the struggles away. My husband and I loved the outdoor shower! The area is stunning and it’s such an experience. We would definitely stay again.
Beautiful location and the truckhouse was oozing with character. We came straight from the Picton ferry which was already an hour late, additionally we were not aware of how challenging and windy the roads were so I would suggest not to do this drive at night. The beds were very comfortable. Wainui Bay was beautiful and safe for children and it was a scenic drive to Farewell Spit where we could walk along the beach and view the migratory birds. Make sure you come prepared with food as it is a long windy drive back to the supermarket.
The house truck was such a treat. A quiet oasis in a busy world.
My family of four had a wonderful two night stay at the house truck. It truly does provide a unique visit. We had the good fortune of great weather, providing sun for eating and playing outdoors alongside cool evenings ideal for sleeping. Similarly, the views and the access the Abel Tasman hikes could not be more ideal. While I suspect the house truck might be tight space for a family on a rainy day, we were fortunate to not have that challenge. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a change of space and willing to climb a small ladder into bed!
Absolutely amazing place to stay. Very well kitted out. All the wee touches made it so special.
La baignoire sous les étoiles c’est top Attention un peu éloigné de tout, en fait idéal pour se mettre au vert Le camion est original et c’est une expérience Compter presque 1h30 pour rejoindre le parc Abel Tasman Un bon moment
Fantastic location, made excellent use of the bbq for alfresco dining, views to die for, outside bath and shower wonderful in great weather and in complete privacy. A big thank you to Lawrence who was quick off the mark in sorting out a water issue before we even knew we had one and for the tips on local walks.
Honestly a dream stay, amazing views, beautiful cosy house truck, hot bath , wood fire and the comfort of nature surrounds. Like something out of a fantasy novel !
This was the highlight of our entire South Island trip. Incredible spot and amazing hospitality. Definitely want to come back, and maybe try the other lodges on offer!
This place is a dream. If you’re looking for a bubble to live in for a few days, secluded enough so nobody can ‘pop’ it, this is the place. Easy walking distance down to the beach and taupo point, it’s set just far enough out to give you head space but with still plenty to explore. Kylie and Lawrence’s vision of creating an eco friendly place is great, but from reading their notice board, I read that they aim to create a place for couples to rejuvenate relationships and spend quality time together. Without a doubt, this was successful during our visit as we put aside technology and just appreciated our surroundings and our company. Having a bath under the stars and as the sun set was also an amazing, unforgettable experience. Thanks so much for having us and sharing your amazing vision and intentions with us. We had an incredible time and it was the perfect way to end our road trip!
