About our home

My home is a 2 storey townhouse with balcony facing the afternoon summer sun, with 3 bedrooms, 1 currently used for my office, the other 2 are 1 x queen upstairs (with own bathroom) and 1 x double bed downstairs with adjoining bathroom. Heat pump/air conditioning.
Decorated with a modern influence., with TVs in lounge and upstairs bedroom.
Internet connection available also.
Delightful courtyard with small lawn surrounded by White roses and Hydrangeas.
Very close to good shopping and many restaurants.
I live beside an International Golf Course and on the other side is a large man made lake, which is ideal for a morning or evening walk....see photos
40 minutes north is the famous Hanmer Hot Springs, 5 minutes east is the beach and 15 minutes south to shopping malls, movie theatres and the centre of Christchurch city.
This setting is ideal for doing day trips or a few days to the most spectacular tourist spots (see Lonely Planet).

More about us

  1. I am Christine, I am in my 60's, I am a Business Advisor in the automotive industry and love travelling. I usually travel with one of my close friends or 1 of my sisters.
    I was in the south of France in 2004 and 2011 and 2013 and again in 2015, also in Turkey 2009 and would love to be back in France June or July or August next year (2018) and maybe some time in the UK.
    I have 1 son, (and daughter in law) with an 8 year old (grand daughter).
    It's time for me to travel again. I am happy to do non simultaneous swap, I would like to be in Europe in the northern summer, but as it would be winter here at that time, and for that reason, I'm happy to do non simultaneous, so my exchangers can be here for NZ summer, somewhere between November and March.
    I ache just to be back in one of those gorgeous wee villages, in an older house, but just as happy in something modern; close to an interesting village, town or city.
    Open to any areas that are interesting: Brittany to Provence to Nice or somewhere in the UK. Prefer in a village or town, rather than remote countryside, tho anywhere in the above areas would be great, but let me know what you have to offer.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

I live in a suburb called Pegasus, which is 15 minutes north of Christchurch city, with good shopping centres close by.
20ks to the south to one of ChChs largest shopping complexes, including movie theatres and restaurants.
Christchurch is famous for being the "Garden City", and looks simply gorgeous in spring and summer. We are well over the big earthquake of 2010.
Within an hours travel to the north, you would pass 10 Wineries, many with restaurants offering fine meals and our famous local wines, for most of the summer.
5 km to the east is our Pegasus Bay beaches. Summer would be the only time, you would venture into the water, but lovely to walk along anytime. 2 hours south east is Akaroa, originally discovered by the French, around the time the English discovered NZ, but the flavour of this remote town is still uniquely French. An hour north are our famous hot Thermal pools, simply divine to soak in for a while and just relax.
