Set in a large garden with sweeping farm and mountain views, Cashmere Hills B&B is in a private location so close to the city. The house is a 1920's-style character house which was rebuilt in 2015 after the 2011 earthquake. The underfloor-heating in the bathrooms, double glazed windows and central heating system make your stay most comfortable while still preserving much of the atmosphere of a 1920s villa with high ceilings, leadlights and character light shades.
We serve a full breakfast, including a choice of items such as eggs Benedict and pancakes.
There is a big comfortable guest lounge, a tea-making kitchenette and a separate entrance.
Enjoying soaking in our cedar outdoor-bath under the stars is "the must experience".
We have free on-site parking.
Each room has amazing views of farmland or the garden with direct access to a patio. Their en-suite bedrooms - both with a super king bed - can be made into two long single beds if preferred.
The house boasts a large (by suburban standards), shady, woodland garden with a mix of native trees complemented by some exotic trees, rhododendrons, hostas, bluebell and ivy. There are a range of orchard trees as well to supply the house which are shared with guests including apples, pears, plums, peaches, apricots, feijoas and quinces. Please enjoy the quiet paths and native birds (including bellbirds, fantails, tuis and kereru). We neighbour onto a farm which sometimes has sheep, sometimes cows.
As the owner is an experienced barista and cafe chef, you can enjoy great coffee and some choices of cafe-style breakfasts with our homegrown organic fruit and vegetables as well as local products. Japanese breakfast can be served on your request.
In the large comfortable guest lounge, you can enjoy complimentary tea, coffee, fruit, and chocolate or biscuits while reading books or watching DVDs.
Wifi & Netflix
Of course we have free Wifi and also a smart TV in each room. You can enjoy Netflix and You tube on the TVs.
We have a cedar bath in the garden and fill it with fresh hot water every evening. The cedar smell will relax your senses as the water relaxes your body.
Complimentary afternoon tea
We offer a welcome afternoon tea for mid-afternoon arrivals. Also you can enjoy the fabulous view from the north-west facing veranda.

Christchurch is an artist town and there are many wonderful artists around. One of our artist friends, Mariko Susu has stayed with us regularly and completed many works lot inspired by NZ light and air, and had many exhibitions not only in Christchurch but also in Auckland and Tokyo. Many of the paintings on our walls are hers.
