After living and travelling in Australia and Europe, we love the adventure vibes that our guests bring into the house and through which we live vicariously while we are based in Christchurch for a while working and studying. We love having friends over to enjoy some good wine after coming home from a busy day. When you stay with us you are welcome to join in or relax in your room. We look forward to welcoming you to the beautiful Christchurch.
Our home is a warm, tidy place that we enjoy hanging out in, if the weather is nice we enjoy a wine on the deck, we have a social kitchen that we like to spend time in while we are cooking. Our living room is a warm and comfortable space where we watch movies and TV shows on a rainy day, but choose to live a life without a TV.
Our kitchen is not available for cooking food. But feel free to make yourself tea and coffee, use the microwave and fridge.
Apart from that you are free to use the rest of the house with the exceptions of the other bedrooms of course. We have a washing machine, you are welcome to use but no dryer, the washing line is in the back yard. There is a laundromat just down the road if you need one.
Общение с гостями
We know the area pretty well, and will be happy to suggest activities or if time permits take you out for a look at Christchurch and its surroundings.
If we are free and you are keen we could head out for a hike or even an overnight trip to a hut or camping. If that's not your jam we are fine to give a couple of suggestions and let you find your own adventures.
Другие важные подробности
We live with our friend Jimmi who often works away. We also have two budgies, Billy and Tilly, who fly around the living room all day long. So we all need to be careful when entering or leaving the house.
At dinner time we could cook a couple of extra servings for $15 pp, all the meat we eat is hunted by Strider or raised on our friend's land, so we know the animals are treated well and it's extra delicious too! We often eat vegetarian or vegan too.
We also have a camper/truck that we have listed on a camper hire website.
Check it out if you are in need of some wheels or an adventure wagon!
- Just be cool and respectful
Hey there, we are Strider (Im a 32 year old project manager, keen outdoors man, gardener and surfer) and Julia (I'm a 28 year old clinical psychologist in training, keen yogi, hiker, gardener and dancer). We have traveled a fair bit around Australia and NZ and have moved back to Nz after living in Australia for 7 years.
We enjoy having guests and friends over, having a glass of wine and a good feed sharing life stories, hearing about adventures and having a good laugh.
We look forward to hosting you!
