This bright and happy home has welcomed travellers from all over the world for many years. It is a haven of peace in a great location to explore the best of Christchurch. 'Stephanie and Brendan, you are amazing hosts!' (Maya & Fabian, Jan 2014) The Space +++ This home is a unique contemporary designer house at the bottom of the beautiful Port Hills, in the well sought after location of Cashmere. It is hidden from the road and as you walk down the driveway you are entering a different world. The house is built into on the site of an old orchard and surrounded by beautiful trees that even grow through the deck. The house is well designed on a small section and ties in well with nature. Inside it is light, airy and full of bright happy colours. Although it is rather small compared with a norm...This bright and happy home has welcomed travellers from all over the world for many years. It is a haven of peace in a great location to explore the best of Christchurch. 'Stephanie and Brendan, you are amazing hosts!' (Maya & Fabian, Jan 2014) The Space +++ This home is a unique contemporary designer house at the bottom of the beautiful Port Hills, in the well sought after location of Cashmere. It is hidden from the road and as you walk down the driveway you are entering a different world. The house is built into on the site of an old orchard and surrounded by beautiful trees that even grow through the deck. The house is well designed on a small section and ties in well with nature. Inside it is light, airy and full of bright happy colours. Although it is rather small compared with a normal NZ house, it feels spacious with high ceilings and big windows. It is a 110sqm three bedroom house with one bathroom and a separate toilet, a big open plan living room and kitchen. A deck of 100sqm wraps around three sides of the house. +++ We love to feed you to be full of energy for a fun day. We love organic and free range food and try to buy as much from local framer's markets as we can. Breakfast includes cereals, gluten-free or normal toast, cheese, salami, honey, yoghurt, fruit, huge range of beautiful teas and coffee. +++ Guest Access+++ Guests are invited to share the living area and outside space including the garden. +++Interaction with Guests+++ Stephanie and Brendan love to share their knowledge of the best locations to explore, cafes, restaurants and tourist attractions. You can also book special tours with them starting from 1h to a full day which includes picnics or lunches. Trips to Akaroa, guided walks in the Port Hills or the Peninsula, Moutain biking, Road Cycling, etc. Please enquire. You can also book: * Portrait Photography by 'handmade photography' * Life Coaching sessions +++The Neighbourhood+++ Cashmere is a gem and probably the most sought after area in Christchurch. It has beautiful parks, walks along the Heathcote River, Cafes, shops and of course hiking tracks in the Hills. The neighbourhood has old established villas and homes with huge gardens and old trees. Hackthorne Road is famous for runners and walkers and of course the road cyclists. If you walk up Hackthorne Road you can choose from lovely cafes with magical views and there is also a gift shop and hairdresser. Only 2min by car, a 5min bike ride or 10min walk to the Pioneer Recreation Centre, a sports facilitation with an indoor swimming pool, sauna, steam bath, fitness centre and more. +++Getting Around+++ The BLUE LINE and the ORBITER, two main bus lines start at Princess Margaret Hospital which is at our door step through the garden entrance and only 2min walk. Parking is available at the property. Please park your car on the white gravel in front of the rubbish bins. Thank you. +++Other Things to Note+++ Your hosts Stephanie and Brendan have a 6 year old child, called Nicolas. He is happy and well mannered. You do need to be aware that our house is unique and beautiful and at the same time it is small and cosy. So you will hear when we are up during the week for school and work. We have a very friendly small spoodle puppy named Bailey who lives outside. If you are not fully comfortable with dogs we can secure him on the leash while you are here. When you choose to book your room with us, you will be welcomed in our family as our friends. We will look after you and at the same time allow the space you want. +++House Rules+++ We love people. We assume you are like us: happy, honest, reliable and open-minded. As a house rule we have: kind words and lots of laughter. Thank you for leaving your shoes outside. There is no smoking allowed on our property and also no pets other than Bailey.More
