The space

Hello, and welcome to our home. I'm John, a semi retired businessman who is currently spending most of my time tending our animals and gardens on our 25 acre lifestyle block just west of Christchurch.

Our home is located approximately 20 minutes away from Christchurch Airport.

The house is a modern, sunny 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom, double glazed home with extensive gardens and grounds.

Most rooms lead directly to the gardens and outdoor seating areas. We have an open plan kitchen/ living area with a separate dining room. In the cooler months our home is heated by a wood burner and a gas fire.

As we live rurally a car will be essential to stay with us. Plenty of parking space is available.

Your room is a large double bedroom consisting of a queen size bed, two bedside cabinets with alarm clock and lamp. All bed linen, pillows, feather duvet and duvet cover are new and of a high quality.

The room also has a door that opens directly on to outdoor paving and garden area. It is especially warm and sunny in the afterrnoons'. There is a separate toilet and full bathroom for your use during your stay.

Currently we have two cats who have access to the living areas and the garden. In addition we also have a number of laying hens who provide free range eggs for the household and assorted farm animals.

We are semi rural. No public transport available
