This is our second home, used by us and family when we are in the city Photos and detailed profile to come home swap

We want a couple of weeks between June and end Sept 2017, while we visit family. it can be a simultaneous or non-simultaneous exchange. We offer a comfortable older style, two-storey modest property about 60 years old, in a pleasant neighbourhood. The City Centre is only walking distance away. It is also very close to the large central city park (Hagley Park), lovely for walking in, and where there is a golf course. There are two bedrooms, bathroom with bath and toilet, and a sitting /dining/living room with a small kitchen. There is a small outside patio for warmer days and it gets morning sun as well as evening sun. There is a washing machine but no dryer. No TV, no internet, no dishwasher! There are three other similar units in the block of four townhouses and each has its own car port.
Our mountain cottage in Arthur's Pass village may also be available if not already occupied.

About the location

Quiet but with plenty of activities nearby such as walking and exploring the city. There are many good coffee bars nearby as well as excellent restaurants. It is in a good position for walking to the museum and the reopened Art Gallery and exploring the post-earthquake city rebuild . A car is generally not needed for the city but for trips further afield a rental car is very useful. It is very convenient for the bus service to and from the airport
