About Christchurch

Welcome to Clonbern Place

Our house is modern, warm, comfortable, and smoke free inside. Only a 5 minute walk to the University of Canterbury and 10 minutes to the College of Education. There is an excellent bus service near to the house making it easy to travel anywhere in the city.

We are Pat and Prem your homestay hosts and we have been living in New Zealand since 1998, before that we lived in the UK. Prem is from Mauritius and Pat is from the UK. We enjoy meeting young people from around the world and are well aware of the needs of students and their unique lifestyles.

There is always more than one student staying with us so you get the opportunity to meet students of your age and from different countries. In the house we encourage English to be spoken as much as possible and with others learning around you it provides an ideal environment to learn the English language.
