This rustic tiny home in Pudding Hill, New Zealand is located just one hour from Christchurch and only ten minutes from the local amenities of Methven this self-contained retreat is the perfect escape for couples and solo adventurers.
As the tiny house movement has built more momentum, we’ve seen them popping up everywhere. Lately one of the most exciting collaborations has been between the tiny house and the short-term rental market. We all love a good Airbnb or VRBO but now we have the option of living out our tiny house dream even if it’s just for a weekend. This new series of Envy will feature these tiny house/vacation rental love children. We hope you like it!
