You have full access to all areas of the self contained apartment which include a lounge-kitchenette, a bedroom and bathroom. You have a private entrance and patio area.
As we farm it is unlikely we will be at the house when you arrive, unless you request that we are there. We have a key lock box on the apartment patio wall which holds the apartment key. Approximately a month prior we will send you your unique access code for the lock box so you can get the key out for the apartment and self check in.

You can SELF CHECK IN BY PUNCHING IN YOUR ACCESS CODE AND GETTING THE KEY FROM THE KEY LOCK BOX ON THE APARTMENT PATIO WALL. There is a picture diagram and instructions next to the key lock box. You will have to remember your access code as it is unique to you.
To close the lock box you have to input your code again into the lock box keypad.
SELF CHECK-OUT: Please switch off the lights and extractor fans, shut the windows, lock the door and return the key to the key lock box as above, thanks.

Location

Lake Tekapo, Canterbury, New Zealand

The neighbourhood is quiet but central. We are located a short five-ten minute walk to the main area of town. Our view is of Mt John, the mountain vistas and The Cairns Farmyard, where you can feed llamas, sheep, rabbits, chickens and Whiskey the enormous pig. Quite often there are rabbits seen grazing at dusk and in the morning. We also get visited by our neighbour's free range chickens. We do not have lake views but are one street away from the lake.

My husband Graham and I are a farming couple 50+ living happily on our hill country farm with sheep, beef cattle and red deer at Mt Nimrod. We have three dogs: a Golden Retriever who thinks she is still a puppy and two young farm dogs called Bluey and Sue. We enjoy the outdoors and farm life. It is our pleasure to share our favourite places with people from all over. One day, when we retire, there will be nothing better than road tripping and enjoying someone else's favourite places. We hope you enjoy your stay.
