Your guest room, and the living areas of the house.
Please help yourself to the tea and coffee making facilities in the kitchen, A light breakfast of muesli/toast will be available in the morning, and we ask that you please have takeaways for dinner or dine out at one of the lovely restaurants down the road.
Interaction with guests
We are friendly folk, happy to give advice, share a drink - or if you prefer to be left to your own devices, we are good at doing that too.
Situated in one of Christchurch's most loved hill suburbs, Redcliffs is quiet and peaceful - with great views.
Sumner Village and beach is a 20 minute walk from our place, which has a selection of great eatery's, galleries, nice boutique shops and a cinema.
We have our favourite go to restaurants/cafes catering to all budgets that we would be happy to share with you! There's lots of walks/hikes, surfing spots, golfing, farmers markets, the Gondola, and Lyttelton Harbour all close by.
Plenty of safe street parking.
We are about a 30 minute drive from the airport and 15 minute drive from the CBD. You can catch the Sumner bus (no.3) and stop in Redcliffs village, we are then a short (but steep) walk up the hill.
Other things to note
We have a Labradoodle named Ferg, he is a gorgeous wee thing and is very friendly. He is hypoallergenic (doesn't shed any hair) so should be fine with allergies, but we will keep him out of your way.
We both work full time and are likely to be in and out during your stay, but please make yourself at home!
Please treat the house and our things as you would if staying with friends.
The carpet is brand new so please remove shoes on entry.
If you have any mishaps or accidents, please let me know so I can sort things out. Much appreciated. :-)
Smoking is ok outside.
Please keep the noise down after 10pm
I am originally from the UK and I've lived in NZ for 10 years, I am currently working in a boutique architectural office and have a background in art, design and fashion. My husband Sam and I purchased this house in its damaged state and have spent the last 2years lovingly repairing it to its former glory! Our interests are great food and wine, music, water sports, exploring this beautiful country and strong coffee!
