Paisley Cottage is Heritage. Built around 1885 . We have endeavoured to keep the unique style of the era whilst making it comfortable and cosy for the modern day guest.
When it was built it was out of town and had a stable at the back! There is a lovely cottage garden at the front with some views to the mountains.
An old fire place dominates the lounge now has a wood burner ,high ceilings large rooms, deep old fashioned bath with shower over. Kitchen dining plenty of seating.
A unique cottage

El espacio
The cottage is spacious the ceilings are high in the original bedrooms and living room. There are not many buildings left with the original wooden walls and ceilings sympathetically restored when the house was updated and insulated. We do not have double glazing.

Many of the period features/fireplace/bathroom are original. In the lounge is an original drying rack which is surprisingly efficient.
Some of the furniture is quirky some from the era the cottage was built. Our beds, linen etc are all new.

We do not have currently have wifi (you can access a hotspot. If we need wifi we use this ourselves it works out to be a reasonable cost as we tether our other devices. It also works at other locations about town.Mobile phone service is usually good..we use Spark they have excellent deals at the airport open from 8 am and would recommend this on arrival if you do not have roaming. Many of the fabulous cafes and restaurants in town also provide free wifi.

We do however have TV DVD and lots of books and games.

Although we do not have Specialist gear/ sleeping arrangements for very small children or babies you are never the less very welcome to bring your own.. bedding that is 😎

So step back in time and visit us for a relaxing vacation in any season.

Acceso de los huéspedes
You will have single use of the entire property plus two bedrooms. Our family's bedroom and a small back room used for storage are locked.


Although we have no special room for skis we have set aside a corner of the dining/ kitchen area for skis, wet boots and jackets. You will find a red tub to put skis and rubber mats for boots as well as some coat hooks.
The garden verandah etc is all exclusively yours..plus the driveway perfect for off street parking.


Just a note.. as we have mentioned previously this is one of the oldest cottages in the town. Consequently it has lots of old features including single glazing .. so if you love new modern streamline architecture this is probably not the property for you :) Please look at the photos read our description and ask questions if you need clarification.

However the woodfire two gas heaters and oil filled electric heaters provide you with lots of heating options making the space very cosy.

So if you embrace a time when the world was more gentle and the pace of life was slower and not so commercialized come and stay you will love the ambience and quirky style. A unique cottage in traditional NZ style.

Although this is the first time we have listed our family home for vacation rentals we do have many reviews from a simalar property we own. So check us out Thank you

##NB the price for two people is for one room share either the queen or twin.

Note we do have a sofabed in the lounge if you need a different configuration. But guests must specify this at the time of booking.
There may be a small additional linen charge if you are already using the three beds..

But please do talk to us we are happy to communicate and answer any of your enquiries.

Kind regards Maria

Just a note re our cat Snowy she does not live in the house she has her own quarter's.

Feel free to give her pats or not she is well taken care of by our gorgeous neighbours.

We suggest you don't open the cat door in the kitchen or she will think we are back home lol

Just a reminder this is a very old cottage and is quite quirky as old houses tend to be. Please don't expect it to be as convenient as a brand new house. Its a chance to experience a little piece of an authentic NZ heritage cottage.

The bath is deep and large.. perfect for a long soak. Do be careful getting in and out if you have wee legs and do use the nonslip mat.
The bathroom door is narrower than usual.
We have a large hotwater tank and although it heats up the water beautifully and fairly quickly it is not instant.

Enjoy your stay in our wonderful town and region..and don't forget if you need to know something just ask. Anything I can do to assist you in your travel plans is my pleasure.

Kind regards Maria

Methven, Canterbury, Nueva Zelanda

Methven is a thriving community..all year round but numbers increase dramatically in the ski season and we are lucky to have visitors from all over the world..the town however always remains friendly and welcoming.

Although skiing is the main attraction in winter we also have many other activities..jetboating on the Rakaia gorge, hot air ballooning to name a few.. The visitor centre is always willing to assist in any way with holiday arrangements/ activities..
.. call in its on the main highway through town.

We also boast walking tracks in and around the area for those keen on walking / hiking..and there are lots of places to ride in the area it's perfect because the surrounding Canterbury plains are reasonably flat..again the info centre is the perfect guide.

We particularly like the drive to Staverly falls there are walking tracks here and on the way a fab Staverly store..coffee snacks etc ask the information centre for directions

If you would like recommendations or assistance with your holiday don't hesitate to ask me.

Ski information
There are various shuttles however Snowman shuttles will do door to door they leave at 8 am every day. There number +6433375750. They are approximately $20/person return

I always find Methven Travel awesome as well for either shuttles to the airport and other destinations or ski field same cost as above phone number 0800684888. The closest pickup is the corner of Carr and Spaxton street just notify them when you book. Methven travel have several shuttles leaving the town for the trip up the mountain.

Ski hire
I have always used BIG Al's snow sports 033028003 located in the main Street or try their website.

I love travelling and have lived in quite a few different countries. I always feel meeting the people is one of the things that makes a memorable trip. If we can help make your trip more enjoyable that be be great too!! I enjoy skiing and the outdoors in general. Reading and playing the saxophone( badly) are some other interests.

Also if we have no previous night booking we are happy for you to check in or leave your gear if you are heading straight to ski field..just ask we will help if it is at all possible.
