About Kia-ora on Apollo
Our weather board home was built in the late eighteen hundreds early 1900's . Over the years Kia-ora has had many 'make overs' but has kept her charm and feel of a family home.
Kia ora is quiet eclectic with a mix of oriental and modern decor. There are 3 bedrooms all with over head fans, built in wardrobes and main bedroom has an ensuite (hair dryer provided) and study area where there is a varied range of books to browse. This area also has a single bed with trundle under neath. The 2nd bedroom has a queen size bed and the 3rd bedroom has a double bed with single mattress under neath.
There is a split system in the kitchen and floor heating in the lounge/dining area, study and passageway. The kitchen has all utensils needed for your stay including dishwasher, microwave and fridge/freezer. The pantry also has coffee/tea, Vegemite and other essentials - baked beans & tomatoes sauce . Laundry has washing machine, iron and ironing board. We will supply towels & sheets. There is not a clothes dryer but there is a great old fashion hills hoist in the back yard and in winter just lie your clothes on the heated floor - they will be dry in the morning!
The north/east facing verandah is perfect for that early morning cuppa or evening G&T!
The west side has a magnificent outdoor area for entertaining and a BBQ. There is also an interesting outdoor fire to enjoy on those cooler nights. Wood and kindling provided.
Buller is only a 40 minute drive or 2 minute walk to Mt Buller Bus Lines.
Only a 5 minute walk to the supermarket, shops, cafe's, hotels and restaurants.
My husband is a paraplegic and is able to transfer into the bath in the main bathroom or wheel into the shower in the ensuite. He has found our home to be wheel chair 'friendly' but if you have 'high' needs 'Kia-ora' might not be accessible for you. There are no hand rails or lift. Please call me to discuss this further if you have a disability or family member/friend who needs assistance.
The home is surrounded by lawn, great for a family game of cricket or 'finska' and an interesting Sth side stone landscaping area which is perfect for those beautiful winter days. (Also wheelchair accessible)
Plenty of parking, undercover carport will fit two cars. Driveway will fit 2 more cars / boats / motor bikes/ push bikes/canoes ect. Plenty of off street parking also available. Oval across the road.
Pets not allowed or smoking inside, ashtrays provided for smokers outside.
Please keep noise level down as we do have neighbours, so no parties please.
We love our home and are very happy to share her with you,
