We all want to live off the grid from time to time.A sweet little escape from the stressful city life would be nice, especially at the end of a workweek.This tiny house in Coromandel, New Zealand, features five 20-foot shipping containers is a perfect place to go off the grid.It sits on a 23-acre land in the middle of a privately-owned reserve.

The place was given a sanctuary status, and there are only 25 lots within 1,100 acres of land. Rosie was lucky enough to buy and own this lot with a stunning view around.She named her house Ahurewa which means “sacred place.”The place is sacred, indeed, with all the natural resources around her. So, she respects the land’s sacredness by living in the most eco-friendly means possible.

It is entirely off the grid.

This is where you can dust off your shoes before entering her beautiful home. It’s a great transition from nature outside to the cozy home inside. This is also where Rosie keeps the batteries, inverter, and power grid to prevent the heat they emit away from the main house.

Then, you’ll enter a vast space that features her kitchen, dining area, and a patio.

The ceiling-to-floor windows and sliding door welcomes you with a breathtaking view from outside. It’s also very spacious with a huge kitchen area which is perfect for welcoming guests.

Another incredible feat of her house is her fireplace.

It serves as both a heater to warm the entire house and an alternate stove if they run out of energy from their kitchen stove. One can simply put a pot or casserole, and the heat from the fireplace will cook it. Awesome, right?

The bathroom is simple yet stunning. Rosie also chose to future-proof her bathroom by creating a big shower area to fit a shower chair and grab handles that also function as a towel rack.

And lastly, a spacious bed facing the beautiful scenery outside.
