Golden Bay Hideaway

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.

What is offered

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

  • Plenty of space and privacy
  • Hot and cold running water
  • Stereo with media player connection
  • Radio, CD player

Where you'll sleep

    King Bed

    The views from the bed encompass Wainui Bay and the mountains of the Kahurangi National Park. Perfect for sunset and chill.

This was our first time staying in an Eco house. What a delightful experience. We loved the ambiance of the house, it felt so warm and comfortable and was very inviting. My sleep quality was so good and the breathtaking views to wake up to were outstanding. The outside bath was an amazing way to unwind each day with our favourite wine. The local Weka birds were an added delight as they are so friendly and inquisitive. The managers on site were fantastic and communication with the hosts also fantastic. The whole experience was amazing and we highly recommend this location and we hope to one day return to Little Greenie ❤️❤️

We had a lovely three night stay here. The house was clean and comfortable with the outside bathtub being a highlight. With my partner being a carpenter he really enjoyed reading all the information about how the passive home was built. We would stay here again and will recommend it to others.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Little Greenie. It was a very peaceful place and had stunning views from the property over the bay and coastline. A great place to visit the quieter northern part of Abel Tasman Park and Coastal path. With no Wi-Fi and TV a wonderful place to unwind. Many thanks Peter and Heather

We had a great two night stay in Little Greenie. The view is spectacular and visible from the whole place whether you’re in bed, reading in the large chairs, cooking or enjoying the outside tub! We had everything we needed and enjoyed being off grid. It was our first time using a composting toilet and although it is quite a different experience we got used to it and love the concept avoiding do much waste. The area is beautiful and we enjoyed seeing it from both sea and land. We recommend the local kayaking and hikes nearby - Abel Tasman is beautiful and Waikiki Falls Track is one to definitely do. Would recommend staying here for a unique and relaxing experience.

The house has amazing views on the beach, as well from the outside bath as the living room inside through the wall of doors of glass. Great place to explore the Abel Tasman NP! Communication was great as well, 10 out of 10!

Die Unterkunft hat eine sehr schöne Aussicht. Draußen zu schwimmen und die schöne Aussicht zu genießen ist spektakulär. Die Komposttoilette ist gewöhnungsbedürftig. Es störte mich, als ich andere menschliche Exkremente sah, Fliegen kamen heraus und es roch nach etwas Außergewöhnlich.

We would live here if we could! What a wonderful and magical place this is. The views are spectacular, the home is cozy and beautifully built and both Kylie and Lawrence were amazing hosts. They both communicated extremely well and gave us lots of wonderful recommendations for where to get groceries, where to find cafes, things to do, etc. You can see and feel the love and mindfulness that was put into creating this home and we are already dreaming of our next stay. Thank you so much for a lovely couple of days of peace and calm, we loved every second of it!
