The space
This is a well-loved, classic bach (if you like fluffy towels and a modern kitchen, this is not the place for you...).
But it is warm, welcoming, comfortable and a really cool place to stay, especially if you have kids or just want a laid-back weekend away. Well behaved dogs welcome by prior arrangement.

Guest access
Guests have full access to everything onsite.

Other things to note
Welcome to our bach, the JOLLY OLD DOG.
Location: 60 Jollies Pass Rd, Hanmer Springs. It’s approx. 600m down the road, on the left, just before the DogStream corner. Large white house, with carport out the front, and a wooden fence.
The location of the house key will be sent prior to arrival.
Inside the small hallway cupboard are more keys to the sheds, patio doors etc.
Linen: Please bring your own sheets for the 1 x Queen bed and 6 x single beds. There are plenty of blankets, covered duvets, and pillows. There are electric blankets on the queen bed and front kids’ beds. There are plenty of towels in the linen cupboard and tea-towels in the kitchen for your use. Please put these and the bathmats through a quick wash and leave them on the laundry racks (in hall cupboard) before your departure. Please note, our towels are not plush and fluffy; they are old, faded, and therefore great for the pools !
Bed linen can be rented for $10 per bed, per stay.
Food: you are welcome to use some of our basic dry goods such as tea, sugar, salt, spices. If a larger group, or staying a few days, you’ll need to restock the loo paper please. We are on a septic tank – any loo paper is fine, but no other products whatsoever can be flushed, or you will definitely have a problem to deal with.
Cleaning: our nightly rates are based on you cleaning the bach yourselves after your stay. There are ample cleaning products and a great vacuum cleaner. If you choose not to clean it, please add an extra $100 onto your rental.
No smoking inside whatsoever.
Heating: there is plenty of dry firewood out in the woodshed (key hanging in hall cupboard). Please refill the lounge woodbox before leaving. If you choose to use the heatpump, please turn it off when not in the bach.
Rubbish: our bins are located in the front shed (key in hallway cupboard). Collection is on Monday mornings. Please don’t put rubbish out unless it is a Sunday or first thing Mon morning. All trash must be in the designated black Hurunui Council bags, or they won’t collect it. All glass (without caps/lids) goes out in the blue tub, and other recycling goes in the clear Hurunui Council recycling bags. If you see any evidence of mice or rodents, please let us know.
Pets: we are open to negotiation for well-behaved dogs, but they must have their own dogbeds and keep off the furniture. All waste must be picked up.
BBQ: you’re welcome to use the BBQ. Please let us know if the gas runs out.
On arrival: you’ll need to turn on the power and water in the front porch pwerbox. Turn the fridge on, but wait about 20-30mins before use. Please don’t adjust the temp setting as it freezes up very fast.
On leaving: please turn power and water off, as per instructions. Leave all curtains open. Leave the fridge and freezer doors open. Return the key to the location. Shut the gate, and drive safe :-)

Location

Hanmer Springs, Canterbury, New Zealand

Located near Dog Stream, this is the older part of Hanmer, so has beautiful old trees and lots of birds. The main noise is from families biking past as they enter the forest, with the occasional loud car going past.

We are a Christchurch based family who love escaping to Hanmer Springs for forest adventures, hot pool soaks and quiet time away. The bach is our second home, which we love to share with like-minded families and guests.
During your stay
Guests are very welcome to contact me by phone/text/email.
I do not live onsite so guest interaction is minimal, but I am very willing to offer any assistance.
