God is continuing to bless the Christian House Sitters web site with fabulous homes. Places where a Christian can enjoy a rent-free holiday.
The featured property this week is in Christchurch New Zealand.
The house is only 5 years old and it is a large sunny 3 bedroomed home, on a hillside in the very small community of Diamond Harbour on Banks Peninsula, overlooking the Port of Lyttelton. It is a 40 min drive from Christchurch.
The main living area is upstairs along with a double and a single bedroom. Downstairs is rather like a self contained flat with a double bedroom, lounge room , and a shower room/toilet. There are very large windows which allow much sun into the house and offers marvellous views over the sea to the Port of Lyttelton. There are many ships coming and going into the Port, so it’s great to be able to watch that movement, often aided by either the binoculars or the telescope. The trip to Christchurch city takes about 40 minutes either by car, winding round the harbour which is very picturesque, or the local ferry which runs hourly, taking approximately 7 minutes, and then connecting with the bus into the city.
There are many native birds around here, including bellbirds and the large wood pigeons. Also there are some walking tracks in the area, and kayaking available in the next bay around the harbour called Purau.
The owner has one sandy coloured cat, who needs company, and this is actually the main reason for wanting a house sitter,although the owner is very happy to share her lovely place with others, and think a house is better lived in than shut up for a season.
