Our home

Situated in a quiet exclusive hillside area 20 minutes from the heart of the city with far reaching views to the Canterbury plains and Southern Alps our beautiful home is modern, comfortable, and sunny.It has spacious living areas (the main room not shown) and is arrranged over three levels with an out door flow to the garden. It is warm in winter and pleasant in summer with opening sliding doors to make the most of the views and wonderful clean air. Most rooms have a lovely outlook and are furnished with a mix of antique and country pieces some of which have been handed down through our families. As we are great readers there many books. We are a retired couple in our mid to late sixties who love travel and visiting new places. We have had 21 exchanges the last two being in Kent UK (wonderful) and Santa Rosa California,lovely. All our exchanges have been a success. Our main interests include reading, history, art galleries, walking and discovering interesting restaurants and places to browse and visit. We also enjoy wine, playing bridge and entertaining our friends.

Who we are

  1. I am Louise and Ray is my husband. Ray is English I am the Kiwi. We met and married in London. After Rays' retirement we decided to move to NZ and live in ChCh where I grew up - and have never regretted it. We have two cats both well behaved and friendly which can stay here if exchange partners don't mind them. If not they stay with friends. We have a wonderful neighbour who lives next door and is always happy to help with any inquires. We also have a son and his family who live close by and are always available to help if needed. We enjoy living in our home and will take great care to treat yours exactly as our own.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our neighbourhood is a quiet pleasant suburb of established homes standing alone with gardens around them. It is ideally situated for walking hiking and exploring the countryside with beaches and mountains less than an hours drive away. The centre of ChCh is approx 20 minutes away by car and there is excellent public transport almost outside the door. Although much of the central city was damaged during the earthquakes and after shocks which rocked the city earlier this year, Christchurch is still a vibrant city with many beautiful gardens and a great variety of attractions including world class restaurants, shops, and places of historic interest.
There is a local fast growing wine industry with many of the vineyards offering tastings and food in lovely surroundings. To tour the beautiful scenic South Island can be a great experience with good clean accommodation and facilities provided at every destination. Please note that during and after the 2011 earthquakes our house and contents remained undamaged and the roads and structure of the area are completley safe and unchanged.
