    Hotel description
    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.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). No other home in New Zealand has been awarded a nine before!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!!** Perfect couples retreat ** Mountain/estuary and sea views ** Modern conveniences ** Bath under the stars ** Craftsman's attention to detail ** Extremely energy efficient ** Warm all year round ** Comfortably sleeps twoThere's no TV but you'll be entertained all the same:-Beautiful Sunsets - Over the water in winter and the mountains in summer.Walk to Wainui Falls - Through lush original forest and over a swing bridge.Go Swimming- The clear waters around Wainui Bay are idealFacilities:- * Sleeps up to two people * Electricity * Hot and cold running water * Radio and CD player * Fridge and cooker/oven * King-size bed or two single beds * Linen and bedding provided * Covered parking * Underfloor heating
