The space
The Earthship has been built with all natural and recycled energy efficient materials. It is designed for maximum warmth in winter, and is a refreshingly cool haven in summer. All rooms have been designed to soothe the soul and offer total comfort.

Guest access
The earthship is all open for use.

Other things to note
Our earthship is a place to reflect relax and enjoy absolute silence. There are no street lights so the stars are out in abundance.
We charge an extra $30 NZD per person per night if the maximum of 8 guests is exceeded. If you are planning to have a party etc we would love your openess and honesty as it is our special home.
We also have two cats. Marlin (black) and Fluer are very quiet and usually spend there time outside. We will leave a tin of biscuits by there bowl outside to feed them once a day please.

The Puketui Valley is absolute heaven. A bush clad valley with a sweet clear flowing river to swim in after that salty day at the beach. Beautiful bush walks with many secret swimming holes and glow worm caves.
The perfect place to reconnect with family or friends and get inspired in this natural earthen home.
We have a horse, a flock of free range chickens and two cute little kittens.
