Beautiful neighbourhood of Mairehau. It's a lovely neighbourhood to go walking in with streams, trees & native shrubs & brand new streets with modern houses.

Lovely Buller Stream Walkway with walking distance from my house. Turn right out of front door, onto Chilton Drive, 1st left into little walkway (not a street), then left again onto the footpath & keep walking along with your stream on the left, past the retirement village, then the native marsh is straight in front of you. This nature reserve was opened in March 2019. Not to be missed if you love nature.

Just a 5 minute drive to stylish Merivale Shopping Precinct which has a plethora of bars & restaurants, and shopping including a supermarket.

The Canterbury Crusaders Rugby team training ground just a 4 minute drive from here, on Innes Road.

Easy access to the city, the beach, and the Wetlands.

My home is in a cul-de-sac (dead end street) so you will have a very lovely quiet time here.

This is a friendly neighbourhood so neighbours will often say "Hello" to you if they see you out walking!

Welcome! I'm a 50 years of age New Zealander, and I'm a piano teacher who sometimes works from home. I've just started up an aioli business. I travelled Asia and Europe in the 1990s before settling in London for four years, then returned home to New Zealand in 1998. I also spent a year living in Western Australia. My sense of humor is quirky and fun. But you can have a peaceful and quiet time here. I have a 13 year old Jack Russell terrier named Patrick. He is very quiet, clean and friendly and you'd hardly know he's here. He loves pats and cuddles! His legs are very short, he's a small old dog and he never jumps at people nor barks inside. I'm fairly quiet at home but I have lots of musical instruments that you are welcome to have a go on! I sometimes play for my guests too. I look forward to hosting you! :)

During your stay
I will probably be working at home most of the time or teaching piano.

Please ask me if you have any queries about transport, shopping, sightseeing or planning your trip!
