About this listing

Wake up to birdsong!

Our home is a beautiful new build - fit for a King and Queen!

The Royal Room has a comfortable king sized bed with private ensuite bathroom. Just what you need when you are away from home, located on a quiet street.

Heating is wall mounted and a towel rail in the bathroom, this space is very warm and cosy in the winter. Full Wifi available.

The space

We have a ballroom, dance, music space available as part of your visit (with piano), with laptop/ IPod connection.

Tango is our dance of choice, however any dancer/ musician is welcome. 7 x 11 metre room with sprung white American oak is perfect for any movement and has lovely acoustics.

The space can also be hired for private recitals or gatherings.

If you would like to learn Argentine Tango just ask!

Michael or Sarah will welcome you on arrival and be around some days as we work from home in the afternoons. Other days we go out to work, but the cats are always around and love company.

Safe and friendly neighbourhood. Otherwise evenings and weekends are very quiet apart from birdsong to wake up to, and the occasional bellbird!

There is parking outside our property and is safe at night.

There is a public transport system into the centre of Christchurch within walking distance of our home.

Moxxy, our cat, is always around, but is no trouble to guests.

The bedroom and ensuite were a good size and the bed was very comfortable. Hosts are a very friendly couple and made sure we had everything we needed. More than happy to recommend and to stay there again.

I felt very relaxed in Michael and Sarah's home. They made me feel very welcome and I would consider staying with them again. I appreciated very much the help they gave me in getting to the Tango Milongas etc

Sarah and Michael made me feel most welcome in their home. The Royal Room was as described and as the photograph shows with a lovely en suite. It was a quiet neighbourhood and I got a great nights sleep. The house was lovely and warm and I was very cosy considering the night temperature dropped to below 1 degree. The bed was very comfortable and warm and the shower had great pressure and was hot. Sarah and Michael gave me a key to the house and I was able to come and go as I pleased. I would definitely return again.

Sarah and Michael are both excellent hosts! Their hospitality also translated into the warmth details in the ensuite bedroom's facilities and ambience. The bed is so comfortable and ideal for a good night rest after a long day of sightseeing. The bathroom is complete with hot shower, warm bath towels and even an aircon. Thanks again Sarah and Michael :-)

Sarah and Michael are a lovely couple who seemed like genuinely good people. The house is very nice and the room had an incredibly comfortable bed. If you are spending a night or two in CC, theirs is a good place to stay.

We were made to feel very at home by both Michael and Sarah - from the moment we arrived with a welcome cup of tea. The accommodation was lovely and comfortable and being 10 minutes from the centre of Christchurch was very convenient as well. Michael also provided advice on local restaurants and a street map that was invaluable. When we visit Christchurch again - we will undoubtedly return!

Hi, Sarah and Michael would love to invite you to come and stay at our modern Tango castle called "Taic Mhor" - in Gaelic this means "Strong Tower".

We enjoy having people around. Monthly dances and weekly tango lessons, harp concerts or just a gathering of friends. Come and join us for a quiet night in, or a jumping off place to visit the city or new found friends.

We live in a quiet suburb close to shops and a good transport network of buses. We enjoy travelling to many places, the most recent being South America on a dancing odyssey and Philippines.

Easy going and relaxed, peace and quiet in our back section means we hear birdsong at sunrise and even the occasional delight of bell bird song or fantails playing at dusk.

Our cat, Moxxy, frustrates and entertains us, sometimes both at the same time! She loves dances as it means the have unlimited love and attention for two solid hours from various willing and unwilling people....

We are a busy married couple living in a gorgeous home. We are blessed with a very wide circle of friends.

Michael is a self styled gourmand who creates the odd disaster both within the kitchen and without. He tends to be casual so be very explicit with your instructions as no two meals are the same!

We are both warm and dedicated to your comfort and well being.
