Hello and welcome,
These are our additional house rules, so please make yourself familiar with them and enjoy your stay.
****Please use translate if you do not understand this well. Our helpful Chinese version is below****
The person making the booking must be present at the house. 不接受第三方预定。订房姓名和入住人姓名需一致. If there is an issue, we prefer to discuss issues directly with the booking person, so that their Airbnb reviews are maintained. We also like to ask to see how you are going (via the app message system), to see how things are going for you and if there is anything extra that we can do to help you have a great time.
Checkout time is by 10am. Our Airbnb properties are very busy and so we have to clean at this time. If you want a late checkout, please make the request the day before and we will see what we can do for you. **Late checkout only by prior arrangement with the host.
Please leave all wet towels and facecloths in the bathroom once finished. We have had issues with people leaving them on the furniture and damaging items.
Hot water info - we have an electric tank. If people take many extended showers it will run out, but normal usage will be fine. It heats back up in a few hours.
Smoking OUTSIDE ONLY. Put butts in the can with water.
Please clean and tidy the kitchen back to how it was.
Wash and dry all dishes, or put them in the dishwasher and TURN IT ON. We are happy to empty the dishwasher. We do not accept a full dishwasher and a load of dishes left on the bench.
EXTRA CHARGE*** We charge $10 for this extra work to wash and clear the bench of dishes***
Please use the washing machine as much as you like - there is a clothes line outside under the verandah or a drying rack in the laundry (please place outside). There is a heated towel rail in the bathroom handy for drying too. DO NOT DRY FULL LOADS IN THE HOUSE AS THERE IS NO CENTRAL VENTILATION SYSTEM and the house will get damp. We like to keep it warm and dry for all guests.
We love this place, please take good care of it.
No cooking of curry or fish. There is a new extractor fan above the stove in the kitchen so please use. Please open windows too.
Absolutely NO DEEP FAT FRYING ALLOWED at this house please.
No parties, and quiet time from 9pm onwards.
Late arrivals please note there is one attached neighbour to consider for noise. Please BE QUIET.
If you have an issue caused during your stay such as excessively dirtied bed linen, broken or damaged items, please just tell us what has happened out of consideration. A problem discussed with us prior to us finding it, is a lot nicer to deal with for both parties. We are kind and reasonable hosts to take great pride in our properties but we do not accept hidden surprises from guests as this becomes uncomfortable to deal with. So, just tell us what's happened, and we will work out a solution. No matter how big or small.
Please do not try to repair or dispose of any damaged items before discussing with us. We have ways of fixing things ourselves and try to do it at no cost.
We love recycling our rubbish so please follow the Christchurch City Council Guide:
1. Yellow bin - recycling like paper, cardboard, pizza boxes, UHT milk cartons, glass bottles, rinsed milk bottles, rinsed cans.
2.Green bin is for food waste, not plastics.
3. Red bin - is for anything else that it not green or recyclable.
4. If you do not understand this please just leave your rubbish inside and we will be able to sort it for you.
For our Chinese visitors, welcome to New Zealand. I hope this translation helps.
For Chinese guests:
1.Please note that check out is by 10am please. To arrange a later checkout please contact the owner the day before departure. Please read the house rules for any late check out fees.
2. Please do not put wet clothes or wet towels on the furniture as they cause damage, which may be charged to the guest. Thank you.
3. When you leave please put the key back where you found it.
4. Please do not remove the electrical adaptor at the house. This is for all guests to use.
5. If you have any damages during your stay such as dirtied sheets or damaged items, please just let us know before we find it. We like to work with the guests to resolve these issues and often they are not as bad as you think. We are kind a reasonable hosts and we just like the courtesy of being told so please don't be embarrassed if something happens. Do not dispose of broken or damaged items without our knowledge as you will be charged for them. Again we are often able to repair items at little or no cost.
6. Please wash the dishes thoroughly with the liquid wash, dry them thoroughly with the tea towels (there are 2 provided) and put the away where you found them. We do not do dishes left on the bench.

We are happy to empty this at no charge. The kitchen must be left clean and tidy. We do not accept wet dishes and pots put away in the cupboards. They must be clean and dry.
