About our home

We are looking for swaps in 2018 - open to Europe, Bali, Japan, Byron Bay/Noosa areas!

A classic kiwi bach that's been carefully renovated throughout by my husband and I. Nestled in the trees, our cosy home enjoys sun-drenched open plan living, featuring a brand new kitchen and bathroom with a mix of midcentury/industrial style. Relax by the fire, enjoy an outdoor bath or wander down through forest to the beach. A large outdoor deck is the perfect spot to enjoy the sunset, with views of the harbour and surrounds.

Banks Peninsula is a stunning spot, with plenty of beautiful beaches and a variety of surf spots. The eclectic port town of Lyttleton is just a 10min ferry ride away, with Christchurch City and the new Adventure Park a 30min drive away.
