Timaru is very central, coastal, and an easy drive to Christchurch, Dunedin, or the Central & Mackenzie high country lakes, mountains and vineyards.
Our home has a lovely indoor outdoor flow with private outdoor eating areas and is just a few minutes walk from Caroline Bay, city centre, movie theatre, cafes and supermarkets.
A 1920's spacious wooden home, beds are a King and Queen, kitchen and both bathrooms were fully renovated in 2009.
Great opportunities for walking and cycling. Timaru also has it's own airport with flights to and from Wellington daily.
