Our tiny house is a black house truck on the top of a hill. We affectionately call her ‘The Black Pig’. Our surrounding land includes a recently planted macadamia orchard and native N.Z bush. There are sea and cliff views from the bedrooms and the sea can be heard at night. Taupo Bay beach is a beautiful beach and has safe swimming and surf. Beach access a 10 minute walk or quick drive. Our home is a ‘micro sanctuary’ to guinea pigs, pig, goat and a cat. Affectionate cat needs feeding please.

The space
Our house truck has electricity, water, a fire, deck, 2 exterior baths, a compost toilet, shower, shub, washing machine, kitchen with gas stove and oven, fridge. There is a computer to use and wifi. In extreme winds the roof can be lowered and the lounge can become the third bedroom. The house truck has charm and comfort but it is rustic and a work in progress. Please respect our values by not cooking meat in the house as we are a vegan family.
