Kia ora and Welcome,

The Summer House is one of Timaru's character homes built in the 1920's. It is not a MODERN home. Much of the original woodwork and the lead light windows have been retained with polished wooden floors and rugs throughout.

The Summer House is convenient to the best Timaru has to offer - cross the road to the park, onto the beach, aquatic centre, tennis courts, Caroline Bay and the summer carnival, playground, kids paddling pool, mini golf, train, piazza, as well as a stroll to the town center with cafes, restaurants and bars overlooking the bay.

Super handy ( 3 min walk ) to Northtown Mall: if you are needing a pharmacy, ATM, clothing, fast-food restaurants or some grocery items.

Awesome sea and park views from home & section. Fantastic for family holidays.

Convenience of dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/ freezer, heat-pump, fully equipped kitchen for food preparation and serving, indoor or out door dining, tv, wifi, and large selection of DVDs, toys and games for the kids.

The Summer House is professionally cleaned after each guest, and professionally laundered linen and towels are supplied. All kitchen appliances, and dining ware are brand new.

Smoking is NOT allowed inside. However you are welcome to smoke outside and use ashtrays provided.

The Summer House has two showers and one separate toilet. Bathroom 1 - shower over bath and vanity, Bathroom 2 shower & laundry, one separate toilet next to bathroom 2 at the rear of the home. Currently only one toilet at the rear of the home, with a new bathroom (with toilet) being installed mid January.

Please check out photos of sloping driveway on listing indicating driveway access.

Like most of Timaru's accommodation, The Summer House is situated on the busy Evans Street, so please be aware that there is traffic noise and the road can be busy at times. There is a private deck and dining area at the back of the house that are fenced and safe for young children to play outside.

ACCESS: Sadly, I will not be there to greet you upon arrival, as I live 40minutes away. So you will need to put on heating when you arrive if the weather has been cold. Hopefully not necessary over summer.

I will send you the lockbox code upon reservation. The lockbox is situated at the front door and holds the key for access to the house via the front door. Back door can be locked/ unlocked from inside. Please ensure house is locked at both doors and key returned to lockbox at the end of your stay.

You are welcome to check in anytime after 3pm and check out anytime before 12 noon on the day of your departure.

There's a lot happening in Timaru over the summer - and you are very close to everything that you can literally walk to from the home. Here's a few things you might like to look at:

DINING OUT: If you are looking for somewhere nice to eat... there are FastFood restaurants ( Mac's Fish & Chips, KFC, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Dominos, Chinese) and supermarket just a short walk 300 meters to your right, or if you would like something a bit more upmarket.. on a warm evening you can cross the road, walk over the park toward the seaside, and hook onto a walking track that takes you over to Caroline Bay, if you walk up the Piazza steps ( the big stairway linking the bay to the shopping centre... there are a 3 or 4 lovely restaurants with outdoor seating and sea views... a very pleasant experience.

WALKWAYS: As mentioned above very pleasant to cross the road and walk through Ashbury Park to Caroline Bay. In addition there is a fantastic cliff loop walk on the Waimataitai hill. So again cross the road - head up to Climie Terrace at the end of this road you will hop onto the walkway which takes you along the cliffs, past a gorgeous little swimming bay and loops back to the hill. Well worth the outing, or even swim!

This house is beautifully clean and well presented, with some lovely small touches. Beds are comfy, the house is warm, especially with the log burner and there is a great selection of movies too. The location was extremely handy to eateries and we took a stroll across the park over the road. If we had more time we would have wandered to Caroline Bay. The road is a busy one but we had a very comfortable one night stay, thank you.
