Beskrivelse af vores byttebolig

Our Cordyline Point home is a delightful hideaway at any time of the year. Located just forty (40) minutes drive from downtown Christchurch, the views from the slopes of Charteris Bay above Lyttelton Harbour are awesome.

The space
Our guest studio was designed to cater to discerning friends and relatives visiting from around the world. Many of those won't do without advanced comforts, desk space, and telecommunication infrastructure while traveling ... so all this became part of the architect's brief ... and is now also available to you :-)

Thus, whether you travel for leisure or work, you will be pleased to find all corners covered, rain or shine, winter or summer.
The studio is self-contained with its own formal entry, terrace and pool access. It features a kitchenette with a convection microwave, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher.

In the en-suite bathroom a washing machine and a dryer stand ready to keep your wardrobe presentable.

The bed is a double bed measuring 190cm x 135cm. Should you require lots of desk space for work, then the bed can optionally be folded up, which reveals desk space moving into position (the desk surface remains level throughout – no need to clear the desk before folding the bed down and using it :-)

Communication facilities
The studio has its own direct dial phone number. Calls to fixed lines (landlines) in most countries are not charged (eg, all of Europe and North America). WiFi is available free, and if needed can be supplemented by wired LAN sockets.
The studio features a TV for free-to-view NZ terrestrial DTV. Apple TV unit connected to TV.

The studio is served by an indoor climate control system to ensure comfortable temperatures year round. In addition, radiators and IR heaters installed.
Extended use of the pool terrace is made comfortable by an overhead infrared heater. Makes for great extended evenings out on the terrace :-)

Swimming Pool
The pool is heated during November through March (this can vary with the weather). It features two counter-current jets for easy (stationary) swimming.

Guest access
The studio is part of the main house, but is self-contained, with a private formal entrance, a separate pool terrace door, with access from the terrace to the heated swimming pool.
If your hosts are on site, then you are welcome to also use other parts of our house beyond the guest studio (eg, dining/kitchen etc).

Check-in and check-out times are flexible, limited only by your needs. We understand that you may require very early or very late check-in/check-out, depending on your flight details.

As our floor are largely carpeted, we request that you do not wear street shoes inside.
For you convenience, slippers are provided.

Beskrivelse af omegn

Charteris Bay is a small village, with a 9-hole golf course and the walking [hiking] trailheads at Orton Bradley Park the biggest attraction.
Charteris Bay is the "tropical" part of Christchurch: here, temperatures range about 7+ C higher than the official (airport) temperature. We are pleasantly sheltered from the cold Easterly and Southerly winds :-)
(Many veggies love this place, and some keep growing happily in winter).
Our area around the Lyttelton Harbour part of the Banks Peninsula is a favourite weekend trip for bicycle and motorcycle riders.

About 1 km walking distance towards the West is a pleasant 19th Century style cafe, the Orton Bradley Cafe. For more savoury items the "Preserved" Restaurant 5 kms to the East is a leading lunch and dining attraction: the best of home-made cured anything can be savoured here (hams and other meats, sausages). Recommended!
In Governors Bay (10km), the "She Chocolate" cafe/restaurant offers a different type of culinary experience: chocolate-based sweet indulgence, high teas, and even savoury chocolate ...
Even further afield (but easily reached on the passenger ferry from Diamond Harbour) is Lyttelton with one of NZ's top restaurants (Roots), and similar great eating places (eg, Freeman's Dining), and a colourful Saturday AM farmer's market.
We have a whole wall filled with maps of our surroundings, including the remainder of NZ, and will be happy to guide you in your exploration of our world 'down under' here.

Three meters to go to reach swimming pool (heated approx Nov thru March)
Within easy walking distance to a golf course, tennis courts, and plenty of hiking and mountain biking trails
Well positioned on Banks Peninsula to serve as base to explore the central South Island: Christchurch, Arthurs Pass, Lake Tekapo, Kaikoura and Hanmer Springs all are within day-trip range
