  • Property is in excellent location, just over the road to the beach,...

    Property is in excellent location, just over the road to the beach, well equipped and a great home away from home. Kids loved it as well, fully fenced and secure. Everything was so easy. Only a short drive from Christchurch but feels well away from the city. We will be back !!!!
