Stay in a typical Kiwi home with organic garden & hot house. Friendly cat plus neighbours Golden Retriever. Ten minutes by car to city or airport.
I have lived in Japan for 5 years & speak Japanese. I am a tour guide of 18 years experience offering day trips from Mt Cook in the South to Kaikoura in the North in my Nissan 10 seater vehicle.
Total flexibility is essential in the South Island with regards to the weather. When the mountains are clear we can go to Mt Cook or Tranz Alpine and Kaikoura or Akaroa when the sea is calm. Homemade picnic lunches included on all tours. Half day tours available to visit farms, winery, gardens, coastal hiking, golf, horseriding or city sights of Christchurch.
