Ive stayed at Little Greenie three times now, once on my own, and twice with my girlfriend and her two kids - they loved it so much we went back for more ! They were crashed on a mattress on the floor, and with the underfloor heating and thermal mass heat storage they were toasty!
Ive got definite plans to build a house using Lawrence's design input and skills, who would want to live in a draughty, poorly insulated and expensive to heat house once you've expereinced Little Greenie ! Highly recommend a visit - you'll love it !

We visited and stayed in Little Greenie specifically to investigate the key aspects of the build in terms of sustainability and we were delighted with what we saw and experienced-definitely a model for building now and into the future in terms of energy saving and building super warm and comfortable housing into the future.The panoramic view of the bay from the house is stunning-definitely worth a visit

I was impressed by the isolation that unfolded on the drive to the Little Greeny. Winding roads through green meadows that wrapped around majestic clifftop . It ended in a very private little property nestled among pines and forest on the North Western Tip of the South Island of NZ. The house itself was immaculately clean. The setup is simple and was well explained by the manager. We were provided with the accoutrements you might need for a few days and left to ourselves. The Privacy was complete, the view exceptional and changeable. Watching the tide Ebb and flow and the storms roll in off the Tasman sea was special. The house was superb, warm, cosy, well equipped... a true Green house ( not that you'd know!) Very romantic, great bed, comfy lounge chairs too.... Best stay anywhere in quite a while.

Room Tip: The little Greenie is the one for me.

Being a busy couple with little time to actually spend with each other, little greenie was (if i could imagine it) heaven! great place for R & R and just kicking back. Being a builder myself ,Laurence has done a fantastic job and I will be engaging his skills one day for our own energy efficient home :)
