Greetings from New Zealand! 🙂

Today we are featuring a beautifully-set home in the northland of New Zealand. Located near the town of Oue, this tiny container cabin will help you get away from the day-to-day hustle and bustle of Auckland.

Sleep under the stars in a shipping container home and watch Hokianga’s night sky unfold from the comfort of your bed. This 20ft shipping container was converted to comfortably accommodate 2 guests with a kitchen, large deck, private bathroom and open top shower. Watch the sun set over the valley as you enjoy dinner and a glass of wine in this peaceful location. Just 10 minutes drive from Opononi and Rawene with waterfalls, hot pools, beaches, walks and NZ’s largest living Kauri tree nearby.

The AirBNB host refers to this home as “glamping” – we think it’s a tad better than just glamping. We love the efficient use of space and just how immersed in nature you will be staying at this cabin home. Check out all the pictures below for more.

We love the efficient use of space. Not only is the bed elevated to allow for more storage space underneath, but the couch next to the bed has storage as well.

What a beautiful shower! Could you imagine waking up to shower over rocks in a quasi-outdoor shower like this one? What a relaxing sight.

You have some pretty good views at this AirBNB, too. Maybe make yourself a meal and take it all in. Or, enjoy an adult beverage or two at the end of a long day.

Again another stunning tiny container home on Airbnb! Thoughts on packing a bag and going around to stay in these places?

So what do you think? Would you live here? 🙂
