Hi I am Edward! check out our insta @ecoescape for more photos + info! This escape is a 2 part tiny home nestled at the base of Taranaki with unmatched mountain views. 15 mins from town and the beach, a stone throw to the mountain and bike tracks this self-contained tiny home is a perfect spot for those wishing to visit Taranaki for an adventure or to unwind. Powered from both solar panels and hydro turbines, this place is as "off-the-grid" as it gets.

We look forward to having you stay!

The space
On the wider property (my parents home and business) there is a lake with kayaks, farm animals, row boat, glow worms, gardens, walkways all of which are available for you to explore and use.

We do our best to be self-sufficient and sustainable and hence have gardens for our own food production. During time of plenty guest are free to take for the gardens - just ask Linda first. We try our very best to recycle as much as we can, so please help us out in doing so.

For more information please check out the Instagram page: @ecoescape

Please note:
One of the beds is up a vertical ladder in a loft space, this bed is only suitable for those that are fit and able to climb up and down.
All outside areas are open for the guests to visit.
Young children must be supervised at all times as the lake, stream and farms animals are a potential safety hazard.
The bush walkways can be very slippery when wet, so please walk carefully and do not run.

Guest access
Guest are free to roam the property, but we aware we have other accommodation facilities and these other guest may prefer their privacy.

Other things to note
This place is 100% off the grid, this means we produce out own electricity with solar and hydro turbines. Please do not bring your own electric heaters during your stay. The use of these are banned as what we generate during the day (with the sun) must last us throughout the night, Our battery bank will be significantly and permanently damaged if we drain it, a single electric heater running throughout the night will do this. If you have any questions of the set up or would like some more information, feel free to ask away!

Please also remember to put a review as we use these to make the place better day by day!

I am a 25 year old mechanical engineer born and raised in Taranaki. I enjoy taking photographs, climbing mountains, experiencing the outdoors and thoroughly enjoy the simplicity of enjoying my morning coffee with a view. I built this escape in 40 days to do just that.... and help pay off my student loan...
