Shaded in a canopy of macrocarpa trees at the base of Mt Taranaki national park, The Treehouse is a grown-up childhood sanctuary. Built from recycled materials, a repurposed spiral staircase takes you up the multiple levels of The Treehouse to a secluded living space nestled between the trees. kick back in the canopy, swoop on the swings or shoot down the slide. This self-contained treehouse is powered by renewable energy and is only a short drive to New Plymouth, local beaches and the mountain.

The space
The Treehouse is spread across 4 levels:

- Ground-level has a covered area for bikes/E-bikes with a charging point, we have e-bikes you can hire if required
- 1st floor is the bathroom.
- 2nd level is the kitchen and lounge.
- 3rd level is the bedroom.

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

The property is all powered by off-grid renewable energy (solar & hydro).
If you are interested in a quick tour of the power system just ask.
