The space
This place has got character and a special feel!!. After having walked up the sloping path (approx. 75 mtrs with steps here and there)you are rewarded by an amazing view of Lyttelton Harbour. Sit on your own deck and take it all in-sensory delights-view, sound of bell birds. 15 Minutes walk down to the main street of Lyttelton, and yet it feels like you are in the country. The kitchen has got all the amenities to cook a complete meal-2 pits (camping)gascooker, small fridge, oven, pots/pans, crockery, complementary coffee/tea, some spices. If you don`t feel like cooking your own meal, Lyttelton offers a host of restaurants, cafes and bars. And there is a Saturday morning market where you can get fresh produce and listen to some great local live music.
The cabin/sleep out has a total of about 25 m2, (URL HIDDEN) space, semi-outdoor kitchen about 14m2. Kitchen is seperate but right next to the cabin/sleep out. This is a kitchen with a view!!. From your breakfast, lunch, dinner table enjoy the ever changing light over water, hills, sky.

Originally from Holland, (pronounce my name Yoke) but call New Zealand my home for over 31 years now. Have lived in Lyttelton since mid eighties (and seen many changes!!). The outdoors is where I feel happiest, and the hills around Lyttelton keep me fit. And when I`m not in the hills, the garden keeps me busy. Traveling is also one of my passions. I speak ein bishen Deutch and un peu de Francais and of course Dutch. When I have time I work a bit...part time as an acupuncturist/massage therapist (clinic room set up in my house). My life`s motto-don`t forget to breathe.....

During your stay

I`m usually around and and you are welcome to knock on my door if you need anything. I`m happy to take you for a walk in the hills, and can offer you a massage afterwards! (I have a clinic at home).
