Brand new, passive solar, off-grid, low energy eco home with an unbeatable view and total privacy. 9star HERS rating out of 10 (Home Energy Rating System).
Little Greenie is the show home of Eco-action Design and Build. If you want to enjoy the still winter days in Golden Bay, this house catches all the afternoon sun, stores it, and is HOT!! For the holiday maker interested in what Golden Bay Hideaway has to offer, 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.

Thanks so much Antje and Lawrence for building Little Greenie! You were great hosts and we loved our welcome hamper. This was the most relaxing and exquisite place to spend our honeymoon. We absolutely loved the house and the beautiful views. We are already planning our next trip and will recommend to all! This was a huge highlight for us and you have started us thinking about building our own eco house one day too.

Little Greenie was a wonderful experience for us. We came because we had heard so much about this Eco-House and felt we had to experience it ourselves. We were not disappointed. The setting is breathtaking, right at the northern end of Abel Tasman National Park. As we stayed in the middle of winter, it was particularly nice to see that even though the temperatures were getting real low during the night (around 4 degrees C), we woke up the next morning with the house still maintaining a cosy 20 degrees C. Unbelievable, especially considering that no heater was used. The climate inside was extremely comfortable. Imagine sitting in a Kiwi house, in the middle of winter in shorts and T-shirt and a very comfortable temperature and without heater. There are probably not many other places in the country where you can do this.

Well done Antje and Lawrence. We'll recommend your Little Greenie to all of our friends.

In February 2009, the two of us stayed at "Little Greenie" in Golden Bay for 11 days. Our daughter who lives in NZ did the reservation for us. It was our first experience in an eco-home and it was truly memorable.
We were surprised and inspired by the high quality of the building as well as the loving and modern furnishing of the interior. Also, it was a pleasure to find the advertising regarding attractive views and scenery not simply met, but even exceeded in reality.
We found our stay to be good value for money and enjoyed our time there very much. We would only recommend the "Little Greenie" for any short or longer stay and we look forward to visiting again.
There may be lots of accommodation in Golden Bay, but "Little Greenie" is worth every cent!
