Our home

This newly constructed solid timber chalet is spacious (75m2) and cosy. It is fully self-contained with a well-equipped kitchen and a private bathroom. There is an open plan kitchen/dining/lounge area with a rural outlook. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other bedroom can either be set up with a king bed or a pair of king single beds. A private patio with outdoor furniture and a BBQ. make this a great place for relaxing.

The chalet is in a semi-rural setting on our 5-hectare property. Take a stroll in our expansive garden or a dip in the outdoor spa pool or swimming pool during the warmer months. Walk to the neighbour's vineyard for wine tasting. Cycle or walk the numerous local trails. Sample the local fruit (cherries, apricots, peaches and more) over the summer months.

Our location is between the towns of Alexandra and Clyde and is semi-rural, in the heart of Central Otago. A few minutes by car from each of the two towns Alexandra and Clyde. This is a centralized location to visit the region. Within a one hour drive to either Queenstown (scenic tourist town, lake & mountains, skiing & adventure capital, Bungi jumping, jet boating etc) or Wanaka (another tourist centre, beautifully scenic. lake, mountains, ski areas). We are a 2-hour drive from the coastal city of Dunedin (Scottish heritage, great wildlife tours on the Otago Peninsula).
We will consider various dates for non-simultaneous exchanges.

Who we are

  1. We are Deirdre and Graeme, in our early 60s. We operate 6 accommodation chalets and grow cherries and raspberries on our 5ha property. We are offering one chalet for exchange so the exchange dates could be non-simultaneous. We enjoy travelling and living as the locals do and are open-minded about where we would like to holiday.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We are situated just 2km from the town of Alexandra in the region of Central Otago, which is one of the most scenic areas of New Zealand. We are surrounded by low mountain ranges, and rivers with many vineyards nearby. We are 1 hour away from the tourist towns of Queenstown and Wanaka but if you wish to avoid crowds there is much to do in our location. Fishing, swimming, boating, wine tasting, mountainbiking, golf, hiking, ice skating are just some example activities, or just visiting the many little historic townships in our area. The summer climate is hot and dry, while in winter it is mainly sunny and cool with frosts.
