this is small but perfect for a stay in this beautiful natural surroundings

Mark, Auckland

We had a great stay in the Pekapeka Tiny House at Earthlore. We only stayed one night, but it was just what we needed for a weekend roadie through the Catlins. Quiet and peaceful. Gordon is a great host. Great communication and met us on arrival to make sure we had everything we needed and then left us to do our thing.

Lucy, Australia

it's a wonderful place to relax in nature. Gordon and Janine are very nice hosts. We were allowed to explore the entire grounds and were able to observe and photograph many local birds. Thanks again for the great time!

First experience in a Tiny house. But knew what to expect. We enjoyed walking about the property, several varieties of fruit trees.

Beautiful tiny house surrounded by nature

Veronica, Queenstown

It was great being in a rural setting but also so close to Owaka with shops & a 4 Square supermarket. This was a great base for exploring the Catlins over three days or so. The tiny house was definitely small, but it was also very modern and comfortable.

George, Auckland

Pekapeka tiny house is in a great central location to explore the Catlins region.


A great place to stay, such a beautiful property and such kind hosts! Would stay again.

Lovely place would highly recommend

Ciaran Glasgow, Glasgow, United Kingdom

This is local flavour defined. Pre-Covid, the hosts ran a wildlife education program focused on insects. This included a murder mystery complete with "inspector insector" in costume. Absolutely priceless. Needless to say, they are wonderful people. The cabins are from another company and the one I stayed in had zero extra room but awesome floor to ceiling windows. I absolutely loved this place.

Maija Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Tiny Away is a great base to explore the Catlins and beyond... set within a 10 acre landscape with a food forest and donkeys. The place is exceptionally quiet with birdsong all around. The tiny home is modern and purpose built with all the amenities you require. The hosts are helpful and discreet. I would highly recommend Tiny Away.

Iain, United Kingdom

Exactly as described ! We liked the ecologic mission underneath as well as the opportunity to spot wildlife ! Perfect for those looking for a quiet spot
