Our neighbourhood is very safe and quiet in a cul de sac and because our house is secluded it feels very private as if we were in the countryside. Our beautiful beach ,Caroline Bay is one of New Zealands safest...(five minutes away from our home) where holiday makers have flocked to for over 100 years .Timaru is considered one of the best places in New Zealand to grow Roses so visit the Trevor Griffiths Roses garden at Caroline Bay -A garden of National significance with more than 1200 rose varieties..Visit one of the South islands best Art galleries, Aigantighe with a permanent collection including works by NZ masters along with local artists and temporary exhibitions. also explore Te Ana Maori Rock Art centre for meaningful and authentic cultural interpretations of some of the nations most significant examples of Maori Rock Art.

Getting around

The Timaru down town centre is seven minutes drive away but within five minutes are two separate shopping malls complete with large supermarkets,pharmacies,shoe shops and Post offices. Five minutes walk away is a quiet cheap Golf Course that welcomes casual golfers. Just 1.5 hours drive away is Lake Tekapo, in the heart of the vast Mc Kenzie District, another popular tourist destination with its awe inspiring scenery. a family friendly ski field, Horse treking, Hot Spa pool complex, skating in winter , a night sky observatory which was recently granted an International Dark Sky reserve status .”.where the sky is so clear and vast that millions of stars seem to appear right before your eyes!”... and is one of the best stargazing sites on earth! Another unforgettable day trip from Timaru just 2.5 hours away is to Aoraki Mt Cook village at the head of Lake Pukaki, part of the UNESCO World heritage park in the heart of the southern alps which you can explore by walking, guided tramps, ski plane or helicopter... Our closest Ski field is Mt Dobson...40 minutes away...but Round Hill at Tekapo and Mount Hutt are also only 2 hours drive from our home. Timaru is two hours south of Christchurch International airport and three hours North of Dunedin or the central Otago Queenstown area and Timaru even has its own domestic airport with flights in and to Wellington twice a day! A wonderful place to stay.
