                        Claudine Barnes  
  Holiday Lettings in Canterbury    




Claudine grew up in a small village in The Netherlands.
With degrees in Occupational Hygiene and Ergonomics,  she worked for 13 years in an Occupational Safety and Health consultancy firm. Making long hours and realising time was slipping away she made the move to New Zealand in 1999. Here she entered the hospitality industry with work at the skifield and the exclusive Braemar lodge. This experience combined with the love for the outdoors, especially in Mt Lyford, has prompted her to start up the business of Mt Lyford Holiday Homes.


With Ross' qualities in the building department, the challenge was set to build their own accommodation, with the idea of creating eco-friendly chalets using techniques that haven't been tested.
While it was Ross' hard work and perseverance that established the Eco chalets, Claudine was working on the marketing side with setting up the website, all promotional material and management systems. Claudine is the creative and organising force behind Mt Lyford Holiday Homes, extending this to service to the community in organising events like running and MTB-races and concerts.

Claudine believes strongly in good customer service and will go the extra mile to make sure our guests will have a great holiday experience.



Ross and Claudine Barnes, owners of Mt Lyford Holiday Homes, are passionate about the alpine village of Mt Lyford with it's unique log chalets hidden in the native bush.
