House includes 3 bedrooms, modern kitchen, large living/dining areas, log fire & secluded, sheltered outdoor living. Castle Hill Village is just over an hour away from Christchurch and offers a variety of activities for all ages and abilities to enjoy - from peaceful walks to exhilarating mountain bike rides. The village is just minutes way from 6 ski fields (including Porters Heights), lakes and rivers for kayaking and fishing, and beautiful trails for hiking and horse riding. A fully equipped kitchen area connects to open plan dining and leads in to the warm and cosy main living area with vaulted cathedral ceilings, log burner & mountain views through front and back sliding doors to decks. The second lounge (with TV/DVD, a double fold-out sofa bed and a piano) and separate bunk room at the other end of the house offer the opportunity for kids to play while adults have dinner or relax by the fire. The main bedroom is large and comfortable with a built in robe, a second spacious bedroom with two single beds (that can be put together for couples) also has built in robes. The bunk room accommodates 4 and has ample storage space below the bunks. The 2nd lounge has a fold out sofa bed. There is one bathroom with shower & a separate toilet. There is also space at the main entry area to store jackets, boots and shoes and sort out those ski boots and damp clothes. Attractive, private outdoor areas, sheltered from wind with outdoor furniture provide indoor/outdoor living, winter and summer. The village offers a tennis court & petanque area, a water slide, along with a rustic 9 hole golf course, and good tracks for walking, running, and mountain biking. The Castle Hill Village playground is just across the street and is a great spot for children, visible from the house.

Loved our stay here, comfortable home and the fire kept the place toasty warm. Had everything we needed. I hope we can come back one day.

This is a comfortable home located in a tranquil alpine village, with the logburner keeping the living area toasty warm and oil column heaters to warm the bedrooms. The owner is excellent to communicate with. As the previous review said, I would recommend bringing all required food items as there are no pantry items supplied, and the village is around 35 minutes drive from the nearest shops. A great location for skiing the local mountains or exploring the area.
Mary Winchester
House is really well set out and great for teenagers. Separate living and bunk room at one end of the house. Nice and cosy with log fire. You will need to take everything with you. No pantry basics like salt or pepper.
