Beautiful 3 bedroom villa available during the Lions Tour

The space

Melrose is a lovely location. We are just behind the zoo so you will often hear the roar of the lions and the call of the gibbons – you can even spot the lions sunbathing from our balcony on a sunny day. The beach and coast are just over the hill (4 min drive / 25 min walk), and the local shopping village in Newtown is close by (4 mins drive, 25 mins walk).
There are three bedrooms. The master bedroom has a King-sized sleigh bed, the second room has a Double bed and the third has a King Single. The photos show a cot which is no longer set up.
As this is our family home, it is fully equipped with all the comforts you would expect in your own home. We also have our belongings in the house, so the cupboards and drawers are not available for use. We have 2 small children so there are lots of toys available to families who are visiting!
We have done some significant redecorating since these photos were taken so you may notice a few items of furniture replaced and different coloured walls.

Check-in and check-out are flexible. We've listed them as 3pm check-in and 11am check-out just for cases of back-to-back bookings (we need to clean the entire house in between guests, which takes a while), but if there's no one before or after you, you can come anytime you like.


Kitchen – Gas hob and oven; combined fridge and freezer; dishwasher; pots, pans, cutlery and crockery.

Bathrooms – there are two bathrooms: one with a bath/shower and toilet and the other with a shower and toilet.

Laundry – there is a top loading washing machine and separate dryer available for use.

Heating – heat pump in main living area and oil heater available for the bedrooms; plus additional blankets if needed.

Media/technology - 42” flat screen TV plus combined DVD/Blu-ray player and internet access is provided via Wi-fi for reasonable use.

Tess User Profile
I grew up in a little village in the heart of Wiltshire in the South of England. I moved to New Zealand with my husband 5 years ago and we do our best to make the most of the beautiful landscape. I enjoy mountain-biking, running, yoga, swimming and so on.
