Our home, which also is a bed and breakfast has magnificent views over Christchurch city to the sea and the mountains. It is quiet and private and only 20 minutes from the city centre. After Christchurch's devastating earthquakes, it suffered no damage. We are happy to provide dinners if required and we are renown for our fantastic breakfasts. Reggie the labrador is very happy for guests to take him walking over the hills which has become a favourite "task" for guests. There is plenty of parking. We live in a very quiet neighbourhood, with little traffic noise.

    The SpaceThe house is large and gives a great feeling of airiness. The living room gets the sun from early morning and has great harbour and hillside forest views. The house has a great indoor/outdoor flow that is enhanced by the proximity of the garden. The living room has a large deck with an outdoor table setting and barbeque, with further seating around on the side decking. The house was built in the 1970s and I have tried to maintain that feel - with a few modern appliances of course! The entire property is very private and has a large sunny established garden which is great for relaxing or socialising in. The bedroom on offer has a very lovely outlook over the garden. It has a comfortable queen size bed and plenty of storage. The house is nice and warm, heated by the sun in summer and by a large wood fire in winter. Guest AccessFull access to the house and garden - a key will be provided. Breakfast and dinner can be arranged by negotiation. The price per night is for a couple, I am willing to negotiate for an individual. Interaction with GuestsThe host lives in the house and is happy to interact with guests. You can have as much or as little interaction as you like. You are welcome to dine with me if you like - dinner and breakfast can be arranged, just ask. I'm happy to provide travel advice and tips for the South Island. The NeighborhoodThere is a local hotel that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Across the road from the hotel is a café. These are a five minute walk from the house. There are a number of walks in the area of varying difficulty, down by the harbour and up and along the hills. It is quite a quiet area that is very green and has great bird life, and is very relaxing. Getting AroundThere is public transport that leaves a number of times per day - please ask for more details as this requires booking a day prior as it is run by volunteers ((URL HIDDEN) Christchurch City is approximately an 11 minute drive by car - depending on traffic flows. I drive to the city each week day morning for work and am happy to drop you off in the city, and pick up on my way home. Other Things to NoteMy two boys live with me 50% of the time - be warned that they are humorous and speak fluent German. The boys room (two single beds) is also available by negotiation when they are not about.

    The SpaceA cosy space tucked away from the street, but nextdoor to the Governors Bay Hotel and She Universe (cafe/restaurant). The views (especially when the sun does its wonders in the early morning or evening) are spectacular! Guest AccessIt's only 20 minutes away from Christchurch but it is like entering another world - you couldn't get much more scenic with the bays, the hills. It's also close to the funky port town of Lyttelton, and enroute to Akaroa a very popular destination for its history on the early settlement days of NZ. Interaction with GuestsThis is my home and I will be present during your stay with me. I also have a teenage dog (Dalmatian) who gets a little excited when guests arrive (in the friendliest possible way), but is otherwise calm. The NeighborhoodGovernors Bay is a small community with a population of 800 people. If you enjoy the outdoors, there are plenty of beautiful tracks and walkways to take advantage of. If you enjoy good food, we have two options, both VERY good. The local hotel is super popular on Thursday and Friday nights with the locals, and all day Saturday and Sundays especially when the weather is fine. She Universe make the best coffee and chocolates... really! They even export their chocolates. Getting AroundThere is a community mini bus service providing access to a public transport system in Christchurch during the weekdays, and to the Farmers Market in Lyttelton on Saturday mornings (see (URL HIDDEN) for timetables and fares). I often make trips into town so I can provide transport by arrangement. There is room to park a car on my driveway however the driveway is only one-car wide so we'd be sharing access. The other option is to use off street parking. Other Things to NoteFor cyclists, exploring New Zealand's wonderful cycle trails, secure garaging can be provided by prior arrangement.

    The SpaceWe call this space our Summer House. It is a separate space well built out of a recycled children's treehouse slightly down the garden from our beautiful home, Fernhill in Governor's Bay near Christchurch. Fernhill overlooks Governor's Bay and with a magnificent outlook to the Banks Peninsula. We have cats, dogs, chickens and llamas. The Summer House is a place where you can relax on the small veranda and enjoy watching the light change over the Hills. But don't think for a moment that it's only suitable for summer time because it is extremely cosy in winter with very effective combustion heater fired by wood grown on the property. The Summer House is a separate room with a bed. So tranquil and remote. Everyone who stays comes away refreshed. The birdsong morning and evening is exquisite. Guest AccessThe only access is by walking down through the trees. It's not far. The toilet is out-of-doors composting. Interaction with GuestsWe are usually around to offer any help required. We tend to be late risers in the weekends. The NeighborhoodFernhill is at the very end of the road, therefore it's relatively quiet. Roughly half of the land area (8Ha of the 20Ha) is covenanted by the QE2 Trust as a conservation area. The rest is grazed by a small herd of llamas. The view to the harbour and hills is beautiful and always changing. Getting AroundFernhill is 30 minutes drive from Christchurch Central and 15 minutes to Lyttelton. There re is no regular bus service. There is a Gov Bus which can be booked. There is plenty of secure parking on the property. There is easy access to the walking tracks around the hills. Little River (30min) and Akaroa (1 hour) are a short distance away. Other Things to NoteFernhill is set high in the valley therefore access is steep ask for assistance if you feel concerned about the drive in. There is no handy supermarket, however the Governors Bay Pub does great meals. That's useful because the Summer House has very basic amenities; cold running water, no power - just a small gas stove.

We are about 90 minutes from the ski-fields, 20 minutes to the beaches and within an hour of some of the very best vineyards in the South Island. Getting AroundThe bus is a 2 minutes walk, airport 25 minutes drive, good restaurants within 10 minutes, AMI Stadium, Horncastle Arena and Addington Raceway also within 10 minutes and the CBD 12 minutes away.
