House in Cashmere Christchurch, New Zealand

Our large house is situated in a suburban valley which is part of Christchurch City. We have lovely views from our comfortable home and a peaceful and private garden which attracts native birds. We enjoy living in a friendly community, close to the city and also close to the many lovely walking tracks in the Port Hills area.
It is easy to get to other parts of Canterbury and the rest of South Island. You could be soaking in the thermal pools of Hanmer Springs, driving through rural farm country around Timaru, visiting wineries in Waipara, swimming with dolphins in Akaroa Harbour, or whale watching in Kaikoura, all just a few hours away.
Other great places less than a days drive away include the beautiful Marlborough Sounds, Nelson with its great beaches, world famous scenic Queenstown and the Southern Lakes, and the wild bush clad West Coast. All are great places to visit for a few days at a time if you are using our place as a base.
We have done some great exchanges and hope to do many more, now that Dave is retired and Diane will retire next year. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

About Our Family

We are a semi retired couple with adult children not living in Christchurch. We are enthusiastic travellers and have done several rewarding exchanges via Intervac. We intend to do many more, especially as we plan to be fully retired in the next year or so. When we are at home, we lead active and interesting lives and enjoy being with our many friends. We also host adult language school students from time to time.
