Whangapoua Sled House is located near an idyllic beach in New Zealand. The place lies within a coastal erosion zone, so the hut has been built on two thick sleds in order to be easily moved when necessary. Having a total area of just 40 sq. m (430.5 sq. ft.), this holiday retreat can easily accommodate a family of five. The hut has a kitchen, the areas for living and dining, a bathroom and two sleeping zones.
