Bluebird bach is a traditional New Zealand home with native timber floors and generously sized rooms.

Keep an eye on the mountain from the kitchen/dining area or relax in the lounge in front of the log fire.

There is a lockable garage for your car or equipment and a large garden area for children.

A three minute walk away is an excellent playground, and the school opposite also has a tennis and basketball court.

Restaurants and bars are all within a few minutes walk.

The large deck off the kitchen is a great place to spend time after a summer's walk or cycle and the garden area is sheltered and quiet.

In the lounge you will find a folder containing information on all the activities available in the area and some games for family fun.

Special conditions: The house garden is not completely fenced so young children would need to be supervised at all times.

    It was a lovely place ideally suited to our needs. Warm and dry with a lovely log burner, plenty of rooms for the children to entertain themselves in during the wet weather and a suitable kitchen. Thanks very much for a lovely weekend away, despite the weather!
