“Ann and Drew were wonderful exchanges partners who were easy to communicate with and fun to know. We had a most enjoyable 2 week stay in their lovely, well equipped and comfortable home in a quiet residential part of Christchurch. There are many interesting day trips easily accessible from their home. The city centre is newly developing with many new and interesting initiatives underway. We were able to experience the many places that were unavailable on our last visit which was just after the February 2011 earthquake. We highly recommend Ann and Drew and their home as an exchange destination and exchange partners.”

Where is it?
Our area Harewood is situated on the outskirts of Christchurch close to the airport (10 minutes) and approx. 25 minutes from the centre of town. Our street is a quiet cul de sac.
The immediate neighbours are very friendly and helpful if needed.
There is The Papanui nearby for a quick meal if required. This is a club which welcomes visitors.
There is a choice of shopping areas all within about a 5 minute drive - Bishopdale Shopping Centre, Northlands Mall (the biggest) and Northwood.
The city centre offers the Art Gallery, the Museum, more shops and a variety of restaurants and bars. We have many new facilities including the library which is well worth a visit.
There is a very good cinema complex in the Colombo Mall(south of the city) which offers Arthouse films. For more main stream movies there is Hoyts at Northlands.
For those who play golf there are several golf courses within 20 minutes of our home - Russley, Clearwater, Harewood, Coringa, Macleans Island, Templeton, Christchurch, Waitikiri, Bottle Lake and Templeton. We have clubs available for use if required.
