Theresa is a good and loving host! She welcomed us when we arrived and she ha prepared a folder of information about Oamaru and about the house. She has a nice kitchen where my friends and I made a good dinner and breakfast the next day. She is entertaining and she shared with us her travelling stories and insights about places of interests in NZ. We love being at her place especially her comfy and warm room made us want to stay longer in the bed! Overall a good experience and I would definitely come back if I visit Oamaru next time!

Theresa is very friendly and welcomed us to her house. She prepared file for people staying there which shows basic house rule (wifi password, how to check out etc) and info about Oamaru. That was so helpful for us. I asked her about restaurant we should go and we went to the place where she reccomended us. That was awesome food and home made beer was fantastic! The experience to stay here was trully great and highly reccomended.

I am Theresa, originally from Christchurch, but living in Oamaru which I am loving making my new home. I have travelled all around the world and love meeting people and exchanging stories and cultures.

I am a primary teacher, which is a hard job but I absolutely love it!

In my spare time I am into watching films, reading, music (singing and listening) going for walks and just chilling out with good friends, good music and a glass of wine.

I get on well with pretty much everyone, am pretty relaxed and love learning new things about the world and about people. I look forward to meeting you!
