Our home

Notre chalet est proche du centre du village mais au calme. Seulement à deux minutes à pied des promenades en forêt et près de nombreuses pistes de VTT, la maison est aussi à cinq minutes à pied des piscines thermales. La station thermale a toujours été la principale attraction de ce village de vacances situé dans le beau bassin alpin de l’île du Sud.
Le chalet est situé très en retrait de la rue, avec deux chambres et une cuisine aménagée autour de deux salles de séjour. Le conservatoire avec un canapé-lit peut devenir une troisième chambre. La chambre principale comprend un lit super-king, la seconde a deux lits simples et un lit d’enfant.
La cuisine, récemment rénovée, est bien aménagée, avec un four excellent, une cuisinière à gaz, et un lave-vaisselle.
Un petit couloir mène à une buanderie avec lave-linge et sèche-linge, ainsi qu’a une spacieuse salle de bains contenant une douche, et wc. Dehors, il y a une grande pelouse, beaucoup arbres, une balançoire, une table de pique-nique, des chaises en plein air, un abri à bois et une abri-voiture.

Our cottage is close to the centre of the village yet peaceful. Only a two minute stroll to numerous forest walks and mountain biking tracks, the house is also just a five-minute walk to Hanmer Springs’ thermal pools. Hanmer’s resort-style pool and spa complex has always been the chief draw-card an of this holiday village located in a beautiful South Island alpine basin.
The holiday cottage is set well back from the road, with two bedrooms and kitchen arranged around two living rooms. One of these living rooms (the conservatory) can become a third bedroom at night, as one of its couches transforms into a double bed. The main bedroom contains a super-king bed; the second has two single beds plus a cot.
The recently renovated kitchen is well appointed, with an excellent oven, gas hob, dishwasher, and stone bench.
A short hallway leads to the laundry with washing machine and dryer, and a spacious bathroom containing a gas-hot-water shower plus toilet. Outside there is plenty of lawn, along with trees, a tree-swing, picnic table, outdoor chairs, washing line, wood shed, and car-port.

Who we are

  1. We are a family of four (plus Frankie the cat) comprising a couple in our mid-forties and two teenagers aged 18 and 16.
    Having always loved visiting Hanmer Springs for holidays and weekends, we bought this cottage four years ago. Since then we’ve thoroughly enjoyed the peace of this location, plus all the available outdoor activities on offer.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Hanmer Springs is a popular holiday destination just an hour and a half’s drive from the South Island’s main city of Christchurch and nearest international airport. It boasts great scenery, walking and mountain-biking tracks, shops, restaurants, cafes, library (with internet) a golf-course, cycle-hire, plus the pool complex which includes a beauty day-spa.
The town is naturally beautiful, with mountains on all sides, and threaded with a couple of streams, and rivers. The Amuri ski-field is Hanmer’s closest, although Mt Lyford is another field just an hour from the cottage.
Hanmer Spings has proven itself to be a year-round destination, equally popular in summer and winter. Autumn here is stunning also, as the leaves dramatically change colour. It is also a perfect spot to base one-self for exploring the stunning wilderness areas of the upper South Island. Mountains, lakes, forest and coastline are all at your doorstep.
