Our home

Our home has five bed rooms, a study, two living rooms and a modern kitchen. It is comfortable, clean and spacious. It has a beautiful, landscaped garden with generous outdoor / indoor living areas. It has a double garage – car is optional.

We have a BBQ, tree house, rabbits (optional) and a very private garden. Our house is located in a quiet cul-de-suc close to all amenities. We love our family home; it would suit everybody from a family to a couple.

Who we are

  1. We are planning to spend three months on sabbatical leave in Hamburg, working at Großhansdorf. We would love a base for our family in the East of Hamburg. We have three boys ages 8, 9 and 12. We hope to explore the neighbour on bicycles and take weekend tours to Denmark and Berlin.

    We can be flexible with the dates of travel, but would like to stay approximately four to six weeks in one place. Some of the time in Europe we are planning to travel further afar to show our children Paris, Salzburg, Florence and Venice. In addition we are happy to consider offering our house for two – three weeks in January 2008 (New Zealand summer).

Christchurch is in the centre of the South Island and ideally positioned for exploring the most beautiful natural landscapes. New Zealand has a temperate climate with average temperatures in summer of 22 C and in winter 12 C. The vegetation stays green.

Our house is located in a quiet cul-de-suc close to all amenities. It is a 10 minute walk to native bush reserve, a shopping mall, movie centre and bird sanctuary. It is a 20 minute bike ride to the city centre, shopping mall’s, art centre, modern art gallery, theatres and Christchurch Cathedral. Within a 30 minutes drive we are at the beach, within an hours drive we are at the ski fields and within two hours drive we are at the beautiful tourist spots of Akaroa (Dolphin swimming), Hanmer Springs(hot springs) and Kaikoura (whale watching).

Christchurch is also ideally situated to visit New Zealand highlights like the Mt Cook, Arthurs pass mountain road, Franz-Joseph Glacier, Able Tasman and Milford Sounds. It has daily flights to Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane and can be reached directly via Los Angeles (via the pacific islands) or via Singapore.
