Welcome to our Sun Drenched double bedroom with its own entrance from the deck, your own bathroom and toilet, and free wifi. This is all set on five acres surrounded by native bush, the song of the bell bird is often the only sound you will here. We are situated only minutes from Timaru, 1.79 kms from the main highway on a no exit road. Come and enjoy the peace and quiet of our home and take a walk around our garden or just chill in the hammock. We look forward to meeting you, take care J&C
