Description

We are building The Shabby Shack. This is an exercise in sustainable and eco-friendly living. Abby's Shabby Shack will be a "Tiny-House" in Monro Street and available for vacation rental from 1 September, 2015.

**Update** without even advertising we are now "booked" for most of September! We have uploaded photos with the exterior cladding almost complete; the interior has yet to be lined and "fitted out".

Incorporating all the best features from the Tiny House Movement and George Clarke's Amazing Spaces, Abby's Shabby Shack is hand-built from mainly recycled materials. Starting with the converted Glider Trailer as a base, and less than 10 sq mtrs in floor area, the design evolved as we progressed.

Some of the more exciting and interesting features are:
- double bed sleeping platform with a roof that opens to the trees and sky
- recycled corrugated-iron roof and rear wall cladding
- recycled headlight and stained

- recycled headlight and stained glass windows, all except one of which open
- window-seat/lounger beneath the large, colonial bar garden window
- large french doors opening on to our garden
- self-contained bathroom including shower and toilet.

Note: although Abby's Shabby Shack only sleeps two adults, we can accommodate families by including The White Wabbit tiny caravan (if available) at an additional charge.

Special Extras:

We also offer "Tea In A Secret Garden" - a classic NZ High Tea for Two in our Garden.

We provide sandwiches, small savouries, scones and homemade jam with whipped cream, chocolate eclairs and a "cake-of-the-day", along with unlimited pots of tea and personal service from our Kiwi Butler. There is a selection of teas, both imported from Paris and our own private blends. All food is "homemade" and the cost is $35 per head. It also comes with a Tea Talk - a brief history and social commentary about Tea.

If you would like to book just select it as an "Optional Extra" along with your booking request, or include the option in your enquiry, and we will pencil you in.

Location description from owner

The Marlborough Region

Known as "the Provence of the South", Marlborough is a region at the top of the South Island of New Zealand. Marlborough is the largest wine-growing region in New Zealand; it has a temperate climate and is known for its Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir wines.
The largest town is Blenheim; a short distance away is Picton and Havelock, both offering access by boat or road to the stunning Marlborough Sounds. Much of Marlborough is made up of high country and valleys which reach from the sea to the mountains. Visitors have a wide variety of things to do in the region - as well as sightseeing tours, which encompass the beautiful Awatere Valley and high country farms and stations of rural Marlborough.

Blenheim

Abby's Shabby Shack (along with The White Wabbit On Monro) is located at the rear of our 100-year-old villa, just 200 metres from the Blenheim town centre. Within easy walking distance there are many cafes, restaurants and bars, as well as the Millennium Art Gallery and the Taylor River Reserve. Slightly further away is the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre, with its world renown collection of WW1 aircraft and vintage/classic cars. Blenheim and the surrounding area of the Wairau Plains are ideally suited to exploring by bike, with well established road and cycle ways around the town and vineyards.
