Special Amenities

This is true tiny home living. It's built to the side, but independent of a main batch with a floor area of 35 m2 and an additional 15 m2 of wrap around decks overlooking the Alderman Islands. Designed with a nautical theme complete with brass fittings and lighting, as well as portal windows in the bunk pods. Although the bunk pods are designed with kids in mind, the mattresses are super comfy and are 203 cm long. The top bunk is very spacious, the bottom one has a low height and is fine for sleeping, but it's pretty cosy — just like life on a ship! The space is full of recycled rimu, red oak ceilings, 100 year old rimu doors with stained glass, 2000+ year old swamp kauri shelves and hand crafted wooden features such as the bottle lamp and 4 m slab macrocarpa bar with inlaid shells and liquid glass finish. The furniture is all hand made from 25 mm plywood for maximum durability and storage. We hope you will enjoy our treasure and appreciate the work that has gone into creating a home which is a work of art rather than 'just a room,' and that you and your loved ones will embrace the tiny living, semi off-grid experience by the seaside.

Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

It's just a short stroll to the surf beach down the reserve. 20 m from the deck is a rope swing which is popular with the visiting kids young an old. About a 10 minute walk down the reserve is a large flying fox. It's a short drive to the boat ramp, harbour with ferry wharf and swimming platform, but walking distance to kids playgrounds and the local shops, the Pauanui recreation club, bowls and golf course, bars and restaurants. There is also a great hike up to the lookout on Mt Pauanui which can be a loop walk back bast cave bay and the flat rock where people fish. There is a kayak available for your use with an adult and child life jacket. Please be very careful in the surf and be mindful of tides in the harbour.
