    The SpaceThe size and scale of the architecture of this building fascinates and intrigues most people. Built in 1913 and opened in 1916, there is evidence of the past life of this remarkable building. As the Hall for the Presbyterian Church the gothic style windows, the three leaf clover pattern cast into columns and mouldings is typical of the architectural detail of Church buildings of this time. There were 150 children that attended Sunday School and if you look carefully, you may find one of the many signatures on the external brickwork left behind nearly 100 years ago. This was the place where the community met for fetes, theatre productions, meetings and other community events. In 1919 it became the Hospital during the Great Flu Epidemic. The building was put up for sale by the church as a redundant building in 2002 and its future was uncertain. Your hosts, the owners, purchased the building with the goal of restoring it beyond its former glory and bringing it into the 21st century. This has been a lengthy and costly 12 year restoration ensuring the building exceeds seismic codes and is assured of a long term future. The transition from old to new is difficult to identify. Your hosts are happy to give you a tour of the building and to point out the historic points of interest. Guest AccessEnjoy your own privacy and space with keys to your own apartment and access keys to the lobby so you can sightsee and come and go at your own leisure. Interaction with GuestsYour hosts are able to offer advice on local attractions and recommend things that will make your experience more memorable. We may not be on site at all times but are still available by phone, or intercom, and are happy to assist our guests. The NeighborhoodIf you like to walk, or jog you will enjoy the short walk to the Domain - a huge scenic park with fabulous trees and gardens, bird aviary, bowls club, gym, mini putt golf, skate park, cycle track, tennis courts, playground and an 18 hole golf course open to visitors. Getting AroundWalking distance to shops, supermarket, restaurants and bars, parks, golf course and most local amenities. The local library is handy and the bus stop about 100 metres away with buses to Timaru or other major cities. Ample car parking right at our door in a safe and friendly neighbourhood. We are able to provide free transfers for guests to and from Timaru airport. Other Things to NoteA basic continental breakfast is provided for guests. At an additional cost you may wish to order one of our gourmet cooked breakfasts made using fresh local produce. Completed menu choices should be given to your hosts by 7pm the night before. If you require the storage of luggage while you travel on, prior to returning back to the area, we are able to assist you with this service.

You will hear birdsong all around you, and will be able to walk in the attractive gardens that surround this property. Guest AccessYou will have the whole cottage to yourselves. The NeighborhoodSouth Canterbury is a lovely part of New Zealand - not spectacular as, for example, Queenstown and Wanaka are, but with beautiful rolling hills and a scenic backdrop of the Southern Alps, yet close to attractions such as the Little Blue Penguin colony at Timaru beach, and with some great organic produce to be found. There is a small supermarket in the village of Pleasant Point where you can buy all you need for your breakfast and dinner.

I will send you a map a few days before you check in as it is easy to get lost on the small country roads. Other Things to NoteThe property is not suitable for children as there are water features. (Please do not make bookings that include children as otherwise I will have to cancel your reservation.) Please note that, sorry, there iis no wifi or televsion.
