Modern-rustic chalet, nestled in the magical mountain village of Castle Hill. Only 1 hour, 10 minutes from Christchurch. This is the perfect place to get close to nature and unwind. The chalet is warm and "hugge", with comfortable furniture and plenty of space for 2 families to spread out.
Our home is available to travellers from near and far.
Enjoy endless outdoor fun...skiing, hiking, rock climbing, caving, mountain biking, rivers, native forest and tennis. OR just relax and breathe deeply.

The space
Our recently built chalet has most of the mod cons that make a holiday relaxing, while giving that feel of old world simplicity. Solid wood walls and a heated concrete floor make it very cosy in the winter and cool evenings.
Let me know how many beds to make up and I'll have the place all ready for you.
The house gets all day sunshine and you can sit out on the deck, enjoy a BBQ and watch the sunset or star gaze into the late hours.
The house is equipped with tennis racquets, board games, and a fledgling collection of books for kids and adults. There is a TV and DVD player with a small collection of family movies.
We have deliberately not installed wifi ....to give you a break, but there is phone reception.
There are no shops nearby so you will need to bring all your food with you. There is plenty of space to put boxes of food and a family sized fridge.

Guest access
Guests can make use of the whole house and garden. Please keep children off the newly planted garden areas. And if it's hot and sunny, please feel free to give the garden a drink.

Other things to note
In summer, bring bug spray. Wasps are present around the village and in the forest in February/March so if you are allergic, take care.
Please note: again, that there are no shops nearby. The closest shop is about 30 minutes drive away in Springfield and that only stocks basics. You are best to bring all food you might need from town. There are some basics at the house such as flour, sugar, oil, salt, spices and herbs etc.
There is a brand new gas BBQ.
Currently (June 2020) there is a significant amount of construction going on at Castle Hill, with the village area over the road from us being developed. If you are wanting total peace and quiet, then this may not be the place for you right now. Try again next year.
