    Default Anyone in Chch?

    The further along we get in the process, the more and more family and friends we discover who either have been to NZ or know someone from NZ.

    It turns out that my wife's cousin and new wiefe spent a few months on the South Island last year, and she herself had lived in Auckland for a couple of years as a teen. He told her they really loved Christchurch, and now my wife has become smitten with settling there.

    I thought we'd end up going to either Wellie or Hamilton, but I figured that since I picked the country, I'd let her pick the city! ;D

    Anyway, I'm looking for insight into the city, especially around the issue of suburbs and areas in which to look for a house. The real estate websites are helpful, but don't really provide much more than cost.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    hey guys, haven't you seen Moggys fabulous post? She's in Christchurch and what a fabulous place she has. Go see the post in General NZ 'Has it only been 2 months'. I am extremely envious. ;) Check it out. I'm sure if they have time, they'll help you as much as they can.

    And Pianist is in Christchurch - a fellow American. She's been having a rough time of it with one thing and another, so I hope things are changing for the better for her. :-/

    I'm sure The Waters are still in ChCh as well.

    I loved it there, it had a lovely feel to it. Cant tell you much about the suburbs I'm afraid we just stayed there for 2 days on our travels.

    Get in touch with Helen tho as they do a fair bit travelling.

    Funny you mention Lyttleton ... I've been checking it out on google earth and it seem lovely ... I already have a house picked out--assuming it stays on the market for another year. The view of the harbor from the hills is worth moving 1/2 around the globe! ;D
