About our home

A cosy newly refurbished, stylish upstairs tourist accomodation apartment in Brinkley Resort at Methven, an hour from the bustling charm of Christchurch city. Accomodation is flexible - the 2 bedroom apartment sleeps 4 (queen & 2 single beds ) It's fully heated with electric log fire, leather lounges, dining area, wool carpeting, kitchen with microwave & dishwasher, laundry / dryer, wireless internet, plasma TV, DVD, CD / Ipod player, bath / shower over. A small balcony off the main lounge overlooks gardens & parking area.
The restaurant/bar is well regarded & tennis court & shared outdoor spa are available. This resort is classified 4 Star & is a vacation property, with on site management.
My preference is to swap October - May ie. the NZ summer spring / summer / autumn altho. I will consider NZ winter ( June to early October ) swap to a glam international location. Check out the resort website at
1. No permanent residents except for onsite management team. This means no kitchen goods are provided except for starter basics of coffee / tea / salt / pepper. Supermarket is 5 - 7 mins walk
2. Additional studio apartment is linked by a common entry, which has kitchen, shower, dining area & shares the laundry. Sleeps 2 / Queen bed. Must be nominated as additional accomodation if you require the extra room & its use would not be included unless requested, so please nominate if you are enquiring re accomodation for 4 ( 2 bedroom apart ) or 6 ( both aparts ) or 2 only (very small self contained studio)

Recent visitors from the Swedish Ladies ski team voted this unit as the best in the resort!


More about us

  1. I am a single professional female, working in financial services marketing and live in Sydney Australia. I am a keen skier and as NZ is only a short flight away from Sydney I use this apartment for weekends away and short breaks. I have furnished it to be cosy, welcoming and a relaxing place to spend your time whilst you explore NZ. I do hope you enjoy my little home away from home!
    Methven town is the only accomodation available if you are skiing Mt Hutt as unlike other ski regions, NZ has no commercial on mountain accomodation and local towns like Methven service the ski fields. There is a daily bus to the mountain but it is best to hire a skierised car in winter.
    My preferred time to swap is January through to March but the swap does not need to be concurrent - open to suggestions!

Where is it?


Brinkley Resort is 5 mins walk from central Methven, a sleepy small town on Canterbury Plains, except for its various festivals & there are plenty if those! This year World Championship Ploughing was held in Methven - wow! But in winter it comes alive with international ski teams & the population is swollen by skiers from all over the world. Whilst NZ is known for its outdoor skiing / heliskiing pursuits, it is one of the most beautiful countries on earth & Methven area is stunning throughout the year. Spring & summer are warm but not humid. Although listed as in the mountains, it is a farming district, so spring in Canturbury Plains region is spectacular - new lambs, beautiful blossoms & green pastures as well as the mountains. As a visitor to this little town you'll like the Blue Pub for a drink, a meal, a laugh. Local restaurants offer the best in local & international cuisine as well as takeaway options. Methven district gives access to some of the best nature & sightseeing in NZ - try local wines & more energetic outdoor summer pursuits such as golf, bungy jumping, white water rafting, jet boating, parasailing, trout fishing, water skiing, hiking, mountain biking etc. An hours easy driving will find you in Christchurch - the jewel of Canterbury - a beautiful cathedral city with stone buildings, parks, art galleries, museums, boating, great shopping,the Antartic Centre is well worth a visit. .
