Bach or holiday home | Ilam | #8894
Spotlessly clean the house has 2 living rooms, 2 bdrms, drawers and large wardrobes. Kitchen with Rimu floor. French doors open to east and north terraces with terrace furniture. The bathroom with shower, and separate laundry, each have a loo. The house is insulated with plenty of heating including ceiling heating in the sitting room. The two bedrms have hotel standard king beds (can be singles) quality linen, duvets and electric blankets. A second TV is in the main bedroom.
The house is on our property but separated by a grass tennis court. We are close by if you need help. We set it up for family and friends to stay as an extension of our own home with everything you would need there and like guests who will appreciate that.
The terrace overlooks the court and garden designed by Marion Morris and guests are welcome to enjoy both gardens. Plenty of cutlery, glassware and china is useful for entertaining and for the dishwasher. The quiet private, well fenced, house has a key lock box, security alarm, smoke alarms, fire extinguisher and emergency items. Plenty of off street parking. Linen is supplied.
We really enjoy our guests and hope you will have time to join us for a drink or coffee during your stay. Our first guest said "everything was perfect and we couldn't have asked for more. A lovely warm home with so many personal touches".
All visitors are given my personal guide to Christchurch which has our favourite places, restaurants and cafes, shops and things to do not found in the guide books. We look forward to having you here.

Solway House was immaculately looked after and beautifully furnished. We loved the NZ art and books provided, and the location was perfect for us. The tennis court/lawn provided much outdoor fun for our children and the security of the gates and fully fenced section was ideal. There are plenty of shops nearby including a fantastic French bakery. We would highly recommend the house to anyone.
The home was clean, comfortable, very well-equipped and lovely. The grounds were wonderful, and we were invited and encouraged to make use of the lawn and gather flowers as we wished. The location was perfect for our needs. We will definitely return!
My response here is very late but it was lovely having you. We were so pleased you popped in out of the blue to see us last year when you were back in Christchurch house sitting and what a fun time we had going to the George Hotel etc. We really value the friendships we have with our guests. You will be pleased to know we now have Apple TV and Netflix so look forward to your return.
This is such an awesome, super clean and cosy house (winter/spring). I highly recommend it as a place to stay and relax. The owners have thought of everything you'd need, and its right there at 'home'. Also great location near the Uni, and handy shops just around the block. I am so coming to ask to stay the next time I go to CHCH. Definitely a lovely place, really homely, with a touch of retro class.
