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.

Little Greenie is a modern home with all the facilities you'd expect.

  • Electricity
  • Hot and cold running water
  • Stereo with media player connection
  • Radio, CD player

Words or even pictures can't describe how breathtaking this place is. The house was extremely comfortable, not to mention special and unique in how it was built, Lawrence was very communicative and helpful (thank you again!) and the experience of waking up to the sunrise over Golden Bay is something we'll never forget. We'll undoubtedly be coming back again.

The little greenie was clean, comfortable and so warm. The view is amazing, you feel like you have the whole coast to yourself, except for a few weka! The outdoor bath was an added bonus after a day of hiking. Lawrence went above and beyond after we got stuck, which we are incredibly grateful for.

What a wonderful place for a honeymoon. So romantic. The bath picture sold us a story ... that came true - we spent 5 hours in the bath with cheese, wine and each other.

Incredible spot - literally can't beat it! Amazing views from the house. Also felt very private, as if no one else was around. The house itself is very comfortable and warm, and well appointed. It had everything we needed to cook meals. If you're thinking about staying, do it! Although, I note that it's cheaper booking direct than through Airbnb.

Amazing view from the hill side. Very quiet and private retreat. Outdoor bath is a nice touch. Very limited cellphone reception/3G.

Spacious eco house on a shared driveway, great location for walks, swim spots and kayaking. Enjoyed the view and outdoor bath with the two Weka that seemed to be about every time we arrived back from our days out.
