Golden Bay Hideaway

This tiny home has been finished 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.

The view was stunning & the position of the place was great if you enjoy a beautiful setting, but it didn't feel as special or comforting as we would expect for what we paid. The towels provided for the bathroom are thin & very basic & smelt damp & we didn't really see how it was fair to charge to make up the second bed when it was advertised as 'Entire holiday home' with 2 beds & then only in smaller print does it mention you have to pay for the second bed to be made up. It should be included in the cost we paid. (Another place we just visited had 2 bedrooms & we had use of these without an extra charge.) Having to throw food waste also into the toilet was not pleasant & so we'd recommend you have a separate food compost section so guests don't have to do that as it doesn't feel hygienic when cooking. Having guests sort the recycling & rubbish at the end of the trip (while mentioned in small print) was also not the best way to end our stay & again, for what we're paying, is poor

Amazing place to stay near Abel Tasman!! We loved the hot tub overlooking the ocean and it was so peaceful and private. The Great Walk trail is nearby so that was a highlight. Highly recommend it!

Such a cozy Airbnb to stay in! My friends and I enjoyed our stay at The Tiny Greenie. I loved every inch of this Airbnb and I look forward to returning to it one day! One of my favourite parts of the Airbnb was the bathtub outside, I was able to admire the scenery from it whilst enjoying a beverage. Kylie and Lawrence were very kind and responsive hosts, and Maria was the most lovely manager! I’m glad I was able to celebrate my birthday in such a gorgeous Airbnb!

Ons verblijf in “Tiny Greenie” overtrof onze verwachtingen. Aankomen bij zonsondergang en dan genieten van een warm bad op het terras met een spectaculair uitzicht. Het huisje is ook heel leuk en praktisch ingericht. Een echte aanrader om heen te gaan! Dank je wel Lawrence en Kylie!

My partner and I had a wonderful stay. The scenery was stunning and the cabin was gorgeous. Though the outdoor bath was most certainly a highlight. Watching the sunlight in th bath with a glass of bubbles - pure magic. Kitchen was great for cooking. Lots of beautiful walking in the area. Would highly recommend.

Awesome spot - loved every minute. So peaceful and private. Unfortunately we had a mishap on departure where we thought we lost our keys (found them in the silliest of spots..) but they were understanding and helpful re getting us out and helping us get the car out for next guests. Apologies for that, but amazing spot and had an awesome trip. Thanks team!

A true hidden gem! Nestled in nature, this charming retreat offered a perfect escape. Modern yet cozy, the house was well-designed and fully equipped. Breathtaking views welcomed us, and the garden and nearby trails added to the charm. Bedrooms were comfy, and the patio with a private hot tub was a delight. A memorable stay.

The tiny Greenie was exactly what we were hoping for and had everything we needed and wanted. The scenery was incredible and it was very private and cosy. We only had one interaction with the owners when we had completed some laundry which felt a bit abrupt after we had made a mistake with the machine. We overall had a lovely stay at the eco house.

A great spot with cracking views. Took a nice walk out to the beach past Whariwharangi hut and then to Totos for a great pizza.

We loved our stay in Wainui Bay. Some of the highlights were the very comfortable loft beds, stargazing from bed at night, the amazing bath tub on the deck, the morning chirp of the weka, compost toilet (that even ate the food scraps) and the lighting features.

Beautiful tiny home. Amazing views. Excellent value for money However listed as "private secluded". The owner arrived 2 days in a row, and it felt uncomfortable. Would have preferred a heads up as it felt uncomfortable letting an older male stranger in who turned up at the door, with just two young females in an isolated house. Lovely lovely time apart from that!

Such an incredibly special place for a couple of nights. So lucky the first night with a glorious sunset in the bath. So private, romantic and luxurious. The bed was super comfortable, very well equipped kitchen and all round stunning views. Really fab recommendations for vegan friendly places nearby given and great instructions. Highlight of our 8 week trip in the South Island and would 100% recommend.
