Brian and the girls have never experienced a white Christmas (I hope it will be a white one) and they've certainly never experienced a Canadian Christmas! They'll be absolutely blown away.
So we are looking to find someone to rent out our place while we're away... and feed the cat.
It's a modest three bedroom bungalow with one bathroom. The lounge is large and has a pull out sofa. There are enough beds to sleep 8 in the house. There's also the sleep out (my office) which could sleep another one or two PLUS our caravan which has a double bed as well.
We are planning to install a second bathroom on the sleepout - it should be finished by Christmas.
We are a short walk to Bayfair shopping mall and the beach. We have a lovely large private garden with fruit trees, organic vegetables and BBQ facilities.
If you've ever thought about what it would be like to spend a nice family Christmas somewhere warm - then this could be the ideal opportunity. Talk to some friends... maybe you can find a few families who can be convinced to take this opportunity to come to New Zealand for Christmas at the beach in a nice family home of someone you know and trust.
Don't forget, we have a caravan which can also be used for weekends away to other areas.
Sounds pretty perfect to me! What are you waiting for! Wanna come to New Zealand for Christmas?
Send me an email if you're interested... or leave me a comment on the blog...
