Description

  • Relaxing rural retreat
  • Expansive country garden setting
  • Fully self-contained home

Tucked away in a large garden and olive grove, this 3 bedroom home is a great place to chill out and relax. A quiet retreat for a short break or your home away from home for a longer stay.

A perfect spot for families, with the gardens ideal for a game of cricket, plenty of space for kids to ride their bikes or build sand castles in the sandpit. For the adults the peace and quiet makes it a great place to unwind and put your feet up.

At just over one hour south of Christchurch this rural retreat is an excellent base to explore the Mid Canterbury district. In Ashburton you can take a leap with Skydiving Kiwis or explore the new Art Gallery or Aviation Museum. Sample an expanding range of restaurant choices from classic kiwi cuisine to Indian, Thai or Japanese. Head to the foothills to explore the walkways and take in the superb alpine scenery. Drive down to Geraldine where you can check out a range of boutique and specialty shops or have a leisurely weekend brunch.

In winter keep cosy with a log burner heating the house and a good supply of firewood provided. Additional heaters available in the bedrooms if needed. The property is toddler friendly with a portacot and highchair available; fenced yard; safety gate on the stairs and fireguard. Ample parking for multiple cars, boats or trailers.

    Nice area which was private and quiet. Our family enjoyed their stay. Great kitchen and nice dishes. Loved the washing machine and having a dishwasher on holiday. Would love to stay again

    This cottage was fantastic, lots of room for parking and toileting our competing dogs. Private and very comfortable with all the amenities we needed. Such a luxury having a log burner and electric blankets when the weather is less than ideal.
