Having lived and worked in the area for over 30 years we're able to let you know about other local attractions that make ideal half day and day trips, or the best place to hide and read a book, or even lend you a spare yoga mat.

              The SpaceDrape yourself over a comfortable piece of furniture by the fire in cooler weather and enjoy tasty treats or take a stroll to see which bird-calls you can identify. Warm winter afternoons provide a chance to doze in the sun on a couch on the deck with a good book (and we have WiFi if you must). Summer opens up more outdoor possibilities from relaxing near the pool to undertaking one of several walk options, including the challenging walk to Mt Wilson for 360 degree views or a stroll along the nearby beach of the Conway Flat. Cabbage Tree Cottage B&B is shared with a couple of West Highland terriers referred to as “the wee white antidepressants", so if you're distressed by dog hair and the type of occasional chaos life with these two comedians brings this isn't an ideal place.

              Interaction with GuestsWe live in Christchurch, so we are not available in person, but very contactable by text! The NeighborhoodKeep an eye out for dolphins! We see them swimming by most times we're up there at least once. Seals are also regular visitors (you'll definitely see one if you take a long walk up the rail track to the bay to the north, they're nearly always sunning themselves on the rocks). We've even seen a couple of penguins, although maybe don't hold your breath on that one, we were VERY excited and it hasn't happened since! :) Other Things to NoteThere are three bedrooms - The master bedroom has a queen bed Bedroom 1 has a single top bunk, and a futon double bed at the bottom, and a futon that can sleep another two (this could be shifted out to the lounge if you're up for moving it!) Bedroom two has a regular bunk and a pull-out single. It's worth noting that the house is about 80m2, so it's fairly compact: while there are technically sleeping surfaces for 10 bodies, it is a fairly tight fit and the toilet is in particularly high demand - I speak from experience! You are more than welcome to use the cacoon and hammock seat - there's two hooks installed under the veranda. (the cacoon is weight limited to 100kg, and it doesn't cope as a swing however!) There are games, books and DVDs for you to use too - obviously just leave them behind when you go

Kanuka lodge is one of the 2 Eco-chalets side by side situated on a 5ha section in Mt Lyford. The wood features give the lodge it's unique character, from huge wooden beams on the ceiling to handcrafted towel rails in the bathroom. The 3 bedrooms offer the option for sleeping 3 couples or 6 singles. The lounge is classy and comfy with wide opening doors to create an easy access to the private sunny deck. A fully equipped kitchen with ground concrete benchtop will help you to create a superb holiday meal. The modern downstairs bathroom has a basin, toilet and shower while upstairs a second bathroom is supplied with toilet and basin. Internet access is available. The accommodation is warm and comfortable and will give you an unforgettable holiday. A wood fired hot tub on the patio provides the perfect excuse for sitting outside at night gazing at the stars and listening to the frogs. What's so ECO ? The eco-chalets are designed to leave a minimal environmental footprint. The sun is used for heating both building and water. A smart system uses the heat from the roofspace to warm the floor. The mass of the building will retain this heat. For the colder days in winter a clean air logfire with wetback will fill in the gaps. The waste water of the chalet goes to a worm tank. We have our own sustainable firewood supply on the 5ha section. All our light fittings are low-energy with some fantastic LED's. Our guests can't believe how warm and cosy the eco lodges are, truly a novelty ! Special conditions: Please note that the use of the woodfired outdoor hot tub incurs an additional cost of $30 per day. Advance notice for the use of the hot tub is required. Minimum stay: 2 nights for weekends/holidays; otherwise 1 night Extras: Cleaning (Optional, NZ$60.00 per stay); Linen (Optional, NZ$20.00 per person); private hot tub (min 2n) (Optional, NZ$30.00 per night);
