This is a peaceful, warm, comfortable, clean, family friendly and fully equipped house, with plenty of extras including free WiFi. The location is excellent, round the corner from the shops, restaurants and pubs. Enjoy the new deck area while kids can play in the large peaceful fenced off garden, on the playstation or with the many toys provided. The rooms are spacious and the newly done bathroom has an extra large shower. There is plenty of parking inside the gates.

The space
Four spacious rooms (including the sleep out or outside room) makes it perfect for a large group. Clean fresh linen is provided per person. The hot water is heated by gas so you will not run out of hot showers. The house is warm, the large night store heater warms the passage and bedrooms (during winter) and an installed heater gives instant heat to the lounge and open plan kitchen (no need to light fires and wait for the warmth). Oil heaters and extra blankets are available for extra warmth! There is plenty of off-street parking available inside closed gates, with enough space to store a boat or trailer and a few cars. The long drive-way is a double lane so is easily accessible, yet off the main road.

The recently renovated bathroom has an extra large shower in it and the laundry has a new extra toilet (hence the 0.5 bathroom). The deck has a new seating area while you bbq or spend time in the peaceful garden.
There is plenty to keep the kids entertained, a PlayStation II with various games for young and old, a separate TV and DVD player with numerous DVD's, books, kids toys, a ride-on bike, games, puzzles, balls, tennis rackets and a trampoline (with no safety net). There is a large 55inch flat screen TV with freeview in the lounge and a satellite dish is available if you want to bring your own sky decoder. There are also a few older bikes with helmets that may be used.

Cleanliness is important to us, as you can see from our reviews, however during this COVID19 time we are taking extra care with cleaning and disinfecting, so you can expect to stay in a safe and clean home. All high touch surfaces are carefully cleaned and disinfected between guests. Cleaning products are available for guests to use during their stay, so they have peace of mind. We are also regularly decluttering and spring-cleaning the house, making sure everything is clean. Guests are welcome to bring their own linen and bedding.
All guest interaction is contactless, keys are kept in a lockbox for easy access and self-check-in. We are also very flexible with cancellations during this time and full refunds are given up to a week before your stay, and sometimes even later depending on the situation.

We stay and work in Christchurch, and are a family of four. Andre, Andrea and our two boys Xavier (12 years) and Alexander (14 years). We come to Twizel once a month to work on the houses and ensure that they are clean and maintained for our guests to have great experiences. We love Twizel, it is a quiet and peaceful town with breathtaking views of the mountain ranges, it is only a 4 hour drive to Christchurch and it is also very close to many areas that we are currently exploring, one of them being the Mount Cook National Park which is spectacular. We love providing an exceptional service to our guests, as best as we can, and we highly value any feedback that allows us to make changes to improve guests experiences. Cleanliness is very important to us and we like to keep our houses very clean and clutter free.
