We've recently completed the build of this tiny home to our exceptionally high McIntyre standard - the Tiny Greenie builds on our vision! Experience warmth and comfort this year in New Zealand’s first European style passive solar tiny house.

Perched high above Wainui Bay you'll experience sunsets over the inlet - the best yet. Surrounded by native bush and the silence that only a remote retreat can deliver.

Tiny Greenie is our latest in our Greenie line of future-thinking eco-homes that you really have to experience first-hand. With a floorspace of 40 square metres (including mezzanines), Tiny Greenie is about as big as tiny gets. This home is sitting on a sturdy dual-axel trailer and can be moved to a new vantage on a whim.

Come stay and find the space to fully appreciate the deep and considered approach to modern low-impact living in a small space.

You know when you see a spot up on a bluff somewhere and think to yourself “man, wouldn’t it be cool to have a house up there!”? Well, that’s basically what they did. This place is great. The view is unreal. It is better equipped/more comfortable/cleaner/classier than a lot of places we’ve stayed on the grid. Would definitely recommend and would definitely stay again. Oh, and don’t worry about the toilet. It was totally not an issue. No extra work/grossness or really much of anything different!

Very cool spot perched up on the hill with stunning views over Wainui Bay. We will certainly be back to stay in one of their many eco homes. Highly recommend. Lawrence was extremely accommodating in offering us a larger home part way through our stay as we ambitiously booked with a toddler. Lovely people. Lovely property.
