About our home

our home is set amongst 1 and a half acres of gardens with many trees that make it private and also brings in many birds.We have chickens,2 goldfish ponds and an aviary.We have renovated our home ourselves over the 28 years that we have lived here (Mike is an engineer) ,the latest renovation being the kitchen last year that is now a English french country look that I love. The living area is open plan with doors out onto the large covered in courtyard that is fantastic in the summer.We are very close to many tourist destinations,Queenstown and Wanaka are only 3 hours away by car,just to name a few.Oamaru has been voted top town in NZ and got great reviews in The Lonely Planet guide.We are famous for our little blue penguins,our victorian buildings,steampunk,and many more quirky things.We are looking for accommodation around Leeds UK but we also need to accumulate points so we are open to anyone wanting to stay in our home for points
