We would like to welcome you to our country home to stay.

Our Homestay/Bed & Breakfast (longer stays are welcome and meals can be provided upon request) is situated in the small village of Waikari in North Canterbury in the South island of New Zealand.

We are in the heart of North Canterbury's wine country where world class wines are produced. We have a warm, friendly and comfortable family home including a visitors lounge with fabulous views of the surrounding countryside, TV and pool table.

You may have your own twin room upstairs with private wc, shower/bath facilities are downstairs or you could try one of our new 'detached' units with queen beds and ensuite facilities.

We have a "no smoking" policy and safe off street parking. Downstairs there is the conservatory (solarium) where you can relax, enjoy the sunshine and review the highlights of your day.

Location:

Our weather is 'temperate', that means warm summers, cool crisp winters, and wonderful spring and autumn weather. Summer temperatures up to 32 degrees Celsius and in winter we have morning frosts but clear bright sunny days.

Waikari is only one hours drive from Christchurch the "Garden City of the World" and 40 minutes drive from the Hanmer Thermal Resort.

Things To Do:

We are ideally situated for you to spend a night as a break whilst driving through to the wonderful West Coast via the Lewis Pass.

Alternatively you can take a break with us on your way through to Kaikoura and the Whale watch via the Alpine Pacific Touring route.

Other ideas include...

Small Farm:

We have a small farm with our own sheep (including Fred our pet black ram), Biddy the true collie sheepdog and the new addition BC (short for black cat) who has wonderful green eyes. We would be happy to organize a farm tour to one of the larger farms in the district if requested. A days notice is required and a charge applies.

Steam Train:

Why not try a day or two in Waikari during the summer season, or any time of the year? The Weka Pass Steam Express runs the first and third Sundays of each month throughout the year.

Trains also run on the Sunday and Monday of most long weekends. Trains depart Glenmark Station Waipara for Waikari at about 11:30 am and 2:00 pm the return trip takes about 2 hours. You can take a return trip from the Waikari Station to Glenmark and back also.

Trains are also available for hire throughout the year. Trains will normally be hauled by steam locomotive A428 but during the summer when total fire bans are in force in North Canterbury, trains will be hauled by their historic Dg class diesel electric locomotives.

Maori Rock Drawings:

You can follow the Weka Pass walkway up the hill behind the village to the limestone outcrops, admire the fantastic view of the valley and study the Maori rock drawings.

Village Craft Shop:

The Village Craft Shop is worth a visit. Wonderfully made local handcrafts and expertly made recycled rimu furniture will give you plenty to choose from if you are looking for gifts for family or friends, or just something to remind you of your holiday.

Fishing:

We have in season some of the best fishing in the world. Trout from Lake Sumner and Lake Taylor and salmon from the Hurunui river. No crowds to contend with either. We are not far from the coast, Gore Bay has a wonderful beach and surf casting from some of the smaller bays around the coastline is worthwhile Fishing at Lake Sumner and in the local Hurunui river is a popular pastime and we are in an ideal spot if you want a fishing holiday.

We are happy to put you in touch with a fishing guide if required also.

Gardens:

We have wonderful local gardens that you can visit including the popular Zeno's Nurseries always worth a visit at any time of the year.

Winter:

In the winter we are but a short 45 minute trip to Mt Lyford and closer still to the Amuri Skifields for those of you wanting to snowboard and ski.

Lake Sumner Conservation Park:

Is something more energetic to your liking? Then the Lake Sumner Conservation Park could be all you need. This superb expanse of mountains, valleys, forest, just 40 minutes from the bed and breakfast offers an exciting range of outdoor recreation opportunities for everyone. The reserve contains tracks, picnic spots, fishing spots and huts to give firsthand experience of this natural splendour. Fishing for brown trout, & quinnat salmon, kayaking on the Hurunui & sailing on the lakes. Hunting for red deer, chamois & pig too. Tramps range from short & easy to steep climbs & valley walks. Mountain biking is another pursuit.

Golf:

If you are after something less strenuous we have a lovely 9 hole golf course at Hawarden the next village.

Genealogy:

My hobby is Genealogy (family history research) so I am interested in all the places you have been, where you are from and anything historical. My research covers Australia, the UK, Ulster, Eire and Germany and I have a large number of books that you can browse while you are visiting.
