This lovely cottage is located in a very quiet rural suburb. It was built in the 1930’s and upgraded in 2010. It gets all day sun, with lots of windows looking out on the large yard and garden. Enjoy a toasty wood burner in the cosy lounge on winter nights. We are located 15-30 minutes to many walking areas and ski fields, and one hour to the national park. The house is well off the main road, so no traffic noise!

Indawo
The house is perfectly laid out and feels very spacious, with lots of windows for sun but all with thermal backed curtains. There is a spacious master bedroom with 2 closets and smaller bedroom with closet and drawers. The wood burner gets the house toasty warm on chilly nights (woodburner not available January-March due to fire season; this is a very hot and dry time of year). There is also a heat pump/AC unit, wall heaters in the bedrooms, and electric blankets.

On weekdays and some weekends I am often staying in the sleep out adjacent to the house, but you will have full private use of the lawns, deck and drive. I give guests total privacy unless they want to chat, in which case I'm happy to if I'm around!

I provide coffee, tea, milk and two to four free range eggs per night. I can provide a basic self catered breakfast including bread, spreads, porridge/oatmeal and muesli/granola, and juice for an extra $5 per person per night; please let me know when you book if you would like to add this. My kitchen is stocked with all the necessary equipment if you choose to cook.

I have a foldaway crib and mattress for babies. The property is completely fenced off, so dogs can run around (if they're not fence jumpers!) Please be aware there is a water race/stream at the back of the property, so you may need to watch small children or non-swimming dogs.

Lapho uzobe ukhona

Springfield, Canterbury, i-New Zealand

The cottage is located in a very quiet rural suburb. Springfield weather avoids the heavy rain of Arthur's Pass and the cold easterly winds and fog of Christchurch, whilst still being only one hour from both. Even better, no sandflies! Lordes Bush and Kowai Bush are beautiful large nature reserves 5 minutes drive away. The impressive Waimakariri Gorge is a 10 min drive. Lake Lyndon and Korowai-Torlesse conservation areas, and ski fields, are within 15 min drive. Castle Hill/Kura Tawhiti is 20 min drive, Arthur's Pass 1 hour. Springfield is a great central stopping point between the West Coast, Mt Cook area, Lewis Pass/Hanmer Springs, and Christchurch/Banks Peninsula.

There are Horse Trekking, Jet Boat rides and 4WD tours that start a very short drive away, I can assist you with booking these.

There are 3 cafes that are open from morning until afternoon or early evening. For later dinners there is the authentic country Springfield Hotel/Pub, recently under new management, and has tasty meals. Otherwise Darfield and Oxford are a short drive away with more restaurant options.

There is no supermarket in Springfield but the service station sells basic grocery items and essentials, and Darfield (15 min drive) and Oxford (20 min drive) both have supermarkets.

I was born and raised in Virginia, USA but have been living in New Zealand for most of the past 10 years, most recently working in environmental and wildlife conservation and visitor/tourism services. I lived in Wellington for almost 4 years and the South Island for about 5 years, in Canterbury and Otago. Obviously I love the outdoors and wildlife, as well as art and design, craft beer and good wine, hiking and fitness!

Phakathi nokuhlala kwakho

I am happy to chat with you on the phone, or if I am available to check you in on arrival. I will have my phone with me at all times should you have any questions. Frequently I am staying in the sleep out at the front of the property, however the entire house, yard and garden is yours exclusively.
