'Casa Colina' Our lovely, tastefully furnished apartment is situated next to our house on a quiet street and close to the Shelley foreshore and very close to all amenities including a newly opened popular cafe. Bus stops are 100 meters away giving freedom to get easy access to the city. It comfortably fits 4 people, it's bright clean and freshly decorated, you won't be disappointed.
You have all the advantages of having your own private spacious apartment as well as the bonus of having someone local right next door if needed! There is a lovely, clean wooden flooring throughout, and the apartment has been newly and tastefully decorated and furnished. I pride myself on keeping it fresh, clean and tidy. The space is equipped with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. It has a fully equipped kitchen with microwave, and I have tried to include everything I can think of to ensure your stay is a home from home experience. There is air conditioning in the main living area for the really hot days or really cold days and fans for use in each room. There are electric blankets on the beds during the winter months. There is a DVD player and a selection DVD's for you to use and also a CD player with various CD's. I leave complimentary breakfast food, including milk, eggs, bread, preserves and butter tea and coffee. Let me know if you have specific dietary requests. The pantry is also stocked with most condiments so you won't have to go out and buy if you want to cook in the apartment. There is a laundry room for your use too.
We have free WIFI access.
The main bedroom has large walk in robe and the second bedroom has a mini portable wardrobe for hanging clothes and storing items. We can provide a cot (large or travel cot) if you have a baby travelling with you, as well as a baby bath. We also have a portable bed which can be put in the living room if you have two people in your party who do not want to share the second bedroom (or even possibly for a 5th guest).
I have put a flexible check-in and check out time on the booking site, so if there is nobody in before you and nobody checking in after you, the time you arrive and leave is up to you, but we can only allow a flexible checkout if no one is checking in the day you leave. If you know you have a late flight and want the apartment to the evening or late afternoon we would recommend that you book an extra night to guarantee this.
Our house and the guest apartment are adjoined but totally private and separate in terms of privacy and access. Guests have their own key to front and back door and will have access to use the BBQ, alfesco area and pool as required (pool is used during the summer months only) . The Laundry room is the space that separates the two properties; the door to your adjoining apartment can be kept locked by you from the inside.
An off road parking spot in the driveway is there exclusively for your use.
Vuorovaikutus vieraiden kanssa
We promote the apartment as private and independent to appeal to people who would like a more private and peaceful experience during their stay but that doesn't mean we wouldn't love a chat with you if the opportunity arises or you would like our help in any way. We are keen to do all we can to make your stay enjoyable and perfect so if you have any special requests or require anything to be organised before your arrival then please let us know. Also let us know if you have any special dietary requirements as we will leave bread, milk and eggs, tea and coffee for you in the apartment. We are really busy most days and not there all the time but we are always available on the phone.

There is off road parking on the driveway available if required. We share our side of the house with our old cat Jinx who is shy but friendly but she is kept out of your apartment due to some guests having cat allergies. Her access to our house is via a cat flap door in the laundry area where she then scuttles straight into our house.
No real house rules, apart from no smoking in the apartment. We are happy for guests to smoke outside in the garden if they wish.
Please respect that only people in the booking can stay overnight, should you wish anyone to stay unexpectedly just speak to us. We welcome you to invite your friends or relatives to come over to the apartment should you wish,
