This is a a self contained, eco-friendlier, tiny house. Please be aware that it has a COMPOST TOILET! I would also like to alert you to the fact that it is only accessible from the road via a long, paved walk way, which includes many stairs.

This tiny house is actually two adjacent buildings, which are connected via a covered porch.

The house is very private, with a private entrance.

Only 2.5 kilometres from the airport.


My partner's younger brother James, is the architect who designed and built this house. James designed this tiny house for us back when he was still a happy student and resembled a hipster. Those days seem long gone for James; he now wears a suit, runs a massive architecture firm and resembles a permanently exhausted, suburban father of two adorable children.

Anyway, James tells me that our tiny house is actually earthquake proof. Oh, and he also tells me that most of the timber used in the house is from recycled sources, and that the rest is sourced from sustainable eco-friendlier suppliers who don't use nasty chemicals.

If you are fortunate enough to reside in the Eco-Friendlier Tiny House during the winter months, you may ask me to give you a tour of how one of the active solar heaters works: it has fans and a thermostat and is angled to catch the winter sun. It is kind of simple yet so effective. The other solar heater is boring, so I would not give you a tour of that one. Oh, and I only consider these to be supplemental sources of heat, since ... well, since Aotearoa (the Maori name for New Zealand) is usually translated as the "Land of the Long White Cloud". Both of the buildings that comprise the tiny house are very well insulated and have electric oil column heaters that keep the place toasty warm. This is important to me, I hate a cold and damp house.

The compost toilet is not scary. I promise. It has a built in extractor fan that prevents any momentary odours. If you are fortunate enough to rent the tiny house long enough such that you fill the bucket to the 3/4 full mark - you just put the lid on the bucket and I will take it away for you. A moment later, I will replace it with another clean bucket which I had prepared earlier. Or if you prefer, you can carry the bucket outside yourself, and exchange it for the new clean bucket that is already sitting there, ready and waiting for you.

To use the compost toilet, you just use it as you would any flush toilet, but instead of flushing, you cover your waste with several scoops of saw dust which is conveniently stored in a container right next to the toilet. Then you simply close the toilet seat lid.

Oh, and of course, your visit will start with a fresh clean bucket!

There is a compost bin for kitchen scraps just a few steps from the front door. Inconveniently located, and directly in front of the afore mentioned compost bin is a narrow row of stones where two varieties of the local lizards (Oligosoma zelandicum and Oligosoma polychroma) happen to live. Please don't step on them.

My husband and I spent 5 nights in the eco house, and I honestly can’t find fault with anything. It is split between two small buildings with a covered porch in between. One building houses a small bathroom (with composting toilet - not “scary” in the slightest, shower with reasonable pressure and a small sink) and good size living area/kitchenette. We were out and about a lot so didn’t cook or use the facilities, however it was extremely well equipped. There is also a large cupboard with massive mirrors and great natural lighting. The bedroom is across the porch in a separate building. The bed was comfortable and we spelt well. Location wise, we found it absolutely perfect. A few minutes drive from the airport (there is some noise from planes in the morning but that seems par for the course in Wellington). We hired a car and parking on the street was easy to find. The house itself was up a driveway and some stairs, but despite being jammed in close between other houses it felt extremely private. Excellent value for money, friendly host- wouldn’t hesitate to stay again.

A quirky fun little place with excellent facilities and an x factor. Nice to stay a little bit out of the city but handy to the airport etc. Extremely good value for money and a super friendly, efficient and obliging host. Will definitely be looking to book this place again when in Wellington

The cycle up the hill and numerous stairs up to the place were worth it to stay in such a lovely tiny house. Some welcoming touches from the host, especially when my train was delayed made my stay even more special. The tiny house is in the garden if the main house but accessible from a different gate so feels very private. I really enjoyed staying out of the main city, and the buses run every 15 mins so it's not hard to get there. Also the vegan recommendations were appreciated! Only wish I could have stayed longer and made use of the blender in the cupboard. Hopefully I can come back and enjoy the beaches nearby :)
