“The biggest surprise on this trip to New Zealand, we have stayed in the best homestay! The whole family was very impressed and praised so much that we had to comment. The house is very large and the facilities are super complete. If there are no mistakes, there are 6 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and toilets, a large living room, an open large kitchen + dining room, a living room and a laundry room. One of the bedrooms and activity room has a pool table and darts, which children especially like. The kitchen is particularly complete with various tableware and kitchenware. The photos of the owner ’s family, the owner ’s professional certificate, etc. are hung in the hallway. Lifestyle and life concept. The yard is unimaginably large. There is a tennis court and a large lawn. Everyone says that you can exercise a few laps around your yard every day to exercise. It is a pity that we only hurriedly left after staying for one night, and we hope to have the opportunity to come again! Thank you so much for your unforgettable experience!”

“This historic countryside cottage is centrally located in Canterbury, so if you're looking to do some hikes in the nearby area it's a great place to call home base for a few days. Not too far from the Christchurch area either, so you could get a day trip to the city into your itinerary as well. We loved the little cottage space, the yard, and the cows that came right up to the fence for a little visit. The stars at night are just incredible. Even the nearby town of Methven had some charming local haunts for a nightcap if you so choose. Would highly recommend, especially if you're interested in the local history, or if you want to drive along the gravel road to Edoras for the incredible views - so worth it.”
This beautiful alpine style unit is centrally located in the Methven township. It is an ideal place for a romantic retreat or a family getaway. The new log burner with heat transfer makes this house lovely and warm. With a ski bus stop 50m away this is an ideal location for a ski holiday on beautiful Mt Hutt. This unit is an ideal base to enjoy all the district offers. This includes hunting, fishing, jet boating, mountain biking, walking or just relax in the idylic setting of Methven.
“We had a great stay at Lydia and Marks house. They were friendly hosts who welcomed us and offered advice about the local area. The apartment was beautifully presented, clean and had many homely touches. The kitchen had everything you need to prepare meals, the bed was comfortable and the apartment spacious. It is in a great central location but quiet at night. Thanks Lydia and Mark”
