Our Timaru Home is only 5-10 minutes walk to Timaru's iconic Caroline Bay and 15 minutes walk to the main CBD shopping area. There is a number of cafes, restaurants and bars within this walking time also. Timaru is a good base for day trips to Mount Cook and the Mackenzie country as well as the lakes area. Plenty of golf courses and good fishing. It has a very moderate climate and is central and only 2 hours from Christchurch and Dunedin.

Wanaka is in the heart of Central Otago with plenty of wine production and an easy commute of Queenstown and all the attraction that are on offer there. Our home is 20 minutes walk from the main shopping are dining areas.
