My wife and I and our eldest son are coming over to New Zealand for most of December, to help celebrate the marriage of our youngest son to a lovely lady in Christchurch.
We will be staying with them for a while, but obviously need to get out of the way for a week around the wedding.
We would like to find a house (2 bedrooms) we can rent, reasonably near to / a shortish drive from, where they live (top end of Barrington Street, near the Southern motorway / Brougham Street.
I’ve been looking on the internet, but the sort of holiday rental places being advertised are all near the sea (New Brighton, Sumner etc.) And are often very expensive…!!!
We’d prefer a house (even with a garden) so we can have them and other friends round for a drink and barbeque – it would be nice to be able to play host ! And more relaxing than a motel.
Can you please give me any suggestions about how I should go about finding somewhere to rent? Should I put an advertisement in the Christchurch Herald? Or are there any better places where I could look for a place or put in an advertisement ?
We’d be very grateful for any suggestions.
