Enjoy an eco-tiny-house experience surrounded by nature in a unique private setting a short drive to urban centres.

Minty is a 12 square metre house truck boasting all the amenities - including but not limited to, a fully functional kitchen & bathroom (composting toilet, showers indoors & outdoors), queen bed, comfortable couch/lounger, mini wood-burner and a sunny private outdoor space.

Keep occupied with our stocked bookshelf, board games and wifi, or an adventure around the 5ha property.

This Airbnb is perfect for couples or singles – are you someone looking for a private retreat, a romantic night away together or somewhere to unwind at the end of the day? Minty the house truck caters for all sorts, with a maximum of 2 guests.

This is also a perfect opportunity for those thinking of living tiny, but want to try out what it feels like to live in a small space! We accept up to 4 week stays, but be aware that if you act in a way that puts the owners of this land at risk or makes them upset, we have the right to ask you to leave.

We are near a main road, so be prepared for some road noise at points during the day.

Minty is set up as an eco-tiny-experience, to provide a private, relaxing, low-impact holiday. Eco credentials include, but are not limited to:
- Landfill-bound materials were used for all of the exterior and most of the interior. Our interior fit-out is full of beautiful handcrafted native timber, all of which was diverted from becoming landfill.
- Sheep wool from Terralana is used to insulate minty, so she is dry, warm and eco-friendly in every aspect!
- Minty is positioned to catch the most afternoon sun possible through the back doors, so make sure you open the back doors to lounge in the sunshine and get those passive solar gains!
- Minty can be almost completely off-grid with a rainwater collection system, solar panels, and batteries. She is connected to the grid for your stay to prevent any inconvenience resulting from lack of sunshine. If power is your thing, there is a full power monitoring system available to view.
- The simple, hassle-free composting toilet system is user friendly. Waste is treated and returned to the earth. If you want to know more, we have comprehensive information available.
- Sustainably harvested firewood from wilding pines on the property.
- All water is collected either directly from the roof of the truck or from the farm’s rainwater system. No added chemicals!
- Eco-friendly cleaning supplies for use during and after your stay.
- No pesticides or herbicides are used on the farm - those aren't weeds, they are habitat restoration nurse crop, building the soil for more desirable species.

Despite being surprisingly private, Minty is parked closer than you'd think to urban centers such as Wellington (30 minutes’ drive), Porirua (15 minutes’ drive) and the Hutt Valley (10-15 minutes’ drive). Perfect for if you don’t feel inclined to cook on your holiday, with lots of restaurant & cafe options nearby - check out our guide for suggestions.

Our outdoor area is lush, surrounded by native regenerating vegetation. On offer are multiple comfortable outdoor seating options, designated outdoor fireplace for toasting marshmallows, relaxing hanging seat, wraparound deck and refreshingly cool outdoor shower for if you’ve had a particularly exciting and muddy day.

Minty has all the amenities you could require! There is full size 4-metre-long kitchen, boasting a large sink, LPG oven and stove, single induction cooktop, as well as the necessities (pots, pans, cutlery, crockery) and appliances (coffee grinder, coffee percolator, and stick blender with attachments).

Our small bathroom has a simple composting toilet and super water-efficient hot shower, with a higher flow cold shower outside - for those who want to feel the breeze on your skin.

Bad weather and can’t go outside? No problem! Enjoy the well stocked bookshelf, board games and Wi-Fi.

Cleanliness is assured with a professional clean after every stay, and we provide cleaning supplies for use during your stay / when you leave.
