Mini Fendalton House is so called because I have moved to a smaller place after over fourteen years of hosting in my big old house. My new house is smaller and warmer, and has one very nice ensuite bedroom available downstairs for guests. It has a superking bed which is very comfortable. As well, sometimes there is an upstairs room available. It is on a quiet back section, and is all double glazed. We are a short ten-minute drive to the town centre, and just over ten minutes to the airport, and have a bus stop at the gate, a useful landmark.
I am still able to look after my guests as I did before and look forward to seeing some of my old friends again. Breakfast is the same great selection and includes lots of fruit, and a large choice of cooked dishes, bacon and eggs, french toast etc.
The house retains its typical Christchurch atmosphere, and is situated in a lovely suburb near the university and near Medbury, a fee paying primary school for boys.
Just down the road is Riccarton Bush, which is a very special and protected bit of the original Christchurch vegetation. Riccarton Bush has two historic residences, Riccarton House, which has a lunch time cafe, and beside it, the tiny Deans cottage built by one of the first settlers here, around the mid 1800s.
