Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Christchurch has a vibrant city with many great restaurants, art galleries, theatre and shopping. The Avon river has recently been extensively developed to enhance the city walkways and recreation. Hagley park on the edge of the city has 165 acres of public space including sports grounds, walkways and botanic gardens. There are several mountain bike parks and walking tracks 20-30 minutes drive away with tracks for all abilities. The lovely beaches of Sumner and New Brighton are a 30 minute drive and Mount Hutt Ski Area is a 1.5 hour drive to the top carpark. The geothermal town of Hanmer Springs is a great town to visit for a day trip as is Akaroa. They are both a scenic 90 minute drive away. More information: https://www.christchurchnz.com

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

We take pride in keeping our house very clean and tidy and expect that our guests will do the same. The SPA pool is only used in winter and needs a dose of chlorine after use. A pool cleaning company will keep the swimming pool maintained during summer.
