About this listing
Sunny north-facing medium sized bedroom in a small back unit in Central City. Complete with a desk + chair, single bed (and spare single mattress), clothes rack with hangers and a heater. Approx 15min walk to the central city. Suitable for travellers, singles, couples, business trips, overnight excursions, flying visits on your way down to Queenstown or Wanaka or even just a place to crash while adventuring in Christchurch. Although fairly flexible, please advise your check-in time when booking.
Beautiful sunny room with single bed, spare single mattress and two duvets and pillows. Room also comes with desk and chair, heater, clothes rack with hangers, towels and flannels, spare sheets, bathroom amenities (shampoo/conditioner, body wash etc) and hot water bottles to warm your toes in the winter!
Access to all areas of the house (inside and out), except the two private bedrooms. Fire brazier on the porch for evening chill-time. Basic breakfast available every day, along with coffee and tea, and fruit bowl is shared. We are a vegetarian household so please don't cook meat in the kitchen. However we are happy to share our dinner with you depending on day/dates of your stay (no extra charge). Dinner is obviously vegetarian - but I promise very delicious! TV is not connected to a network but HDMI cable available (incl for Mac), so it can be hooked up to your laptop for movies etc. Wifi throughout the house. Small garden out the back with a trampoline for your inner child!
Interaction with guests
You will share the home with myself and my 9 year old son - we will interact with you as much or as little as you like. I work full time and my boy is at school, so we're out of the house during the day, but usually home for a chat, dinner-sharing or movie-watching in the afternoon and evenings. Feel free to ask about any local restaurants, cafes, entertainment, gardens, tourist areas, secret spots or things to do across the city... having grown up in Christchurch, I know it fairly well and will help you out as much as I can!
If you have a car, there is parking on the street. Central city (including the local bus exchange) is approx a 15 minute walk. Additionally, I have a campervan and trailer which you can book, providing they are available for the dates you need. If you'd like to book out Bevan (the campervan) and/or Gary (the trailer), please ask and I can check their availability.
Ensure bathroom and kitchen are left tidy and clean after use. No cooking meat in the kitchen - welcome to join in delicious vegetarian dinners with us if you like! No smoking inside - outside is fine. Preferable if shoes are not worn inside.

•Hiking up the mountains and hills around Lake Coleridge, Skippers Canyon and Arthurs Pass.
•Daffodils and Daphne
•Travelling. Any kind - road trips around NZ, quick holidays to Australia, big overseas getaways to exotic places with cultural experiences.
•Meeting new people
•Live theatre - especially comedy!
