Our self-contained cabin has stunning views of Lyttelton Harbour and is close by to the awe-inspiring Orton Bradley Park. The Banks Peninsula is an outdoors playground, with plenty to do such as kayaking, mountain biking, walking, swimming. One night just isn't enough to explore all the attractions! Our cabin is fully equipped with its own bathroom and kitchenette. Our place would suit couples or solo adventurers.

The space
Our sunny cabin in Church Bay is just 35 minutes drive from Christchurch, with plenty of outdoor adventures to be had here. We are close to beaches, mountains, a canyon and a country park. We would suggest at least a 2- or 3-night stay, with a suggested itinerary of day one: Orton Bradley park or a local beach (little known to tourists!), day two: walking up Mt Herbert or a boat trip to Quail Island, day three: exploring the pretty village of Diamond Harbour or checking out the quirky town of Lyttelton.

Guest access
The rate is for the whole of the cabin, which is one living / bedroom (with double bed) including the kitchenette and then a small bathroom. The kitchenette has a refrigerator, microwave grill, double hob and sink. Tea and coffee is available for you. There is a deck to admire the views.
We live in a house on the adjoining section, so we are available when needed.
Guests have access to our home gym (50metres from the cabin) and is available for guest use at $12NZ per day.
Guests can also hire our mountain bikes ($20NZ each) per day.
Washing machine and dryer are available at a charge of $10NZ per washing load.

Other things to note
Continental breakfast is available for $20NZ per person. This would be served to you in the cabin at a time to be arranged. We have our own chickens, so fresh eggs are often on the menu.
We have a range of inflatable mattresses to accommodate one child travelling with you. Each child would be an additional $20 per night.
Please note there is an unfenced pond on the property (about half a metre deep). It is the parents' responsibility to keep their child/ren safe whilst staying here.
We also have a private room (king single bed with king single trundler) in our home available for booking. Please see other listing.

Location

Diamond Harbour, Canterbury, New Zealand

Church Bay (and the neighbouring Diamond Harbour) are quiet semi-rural communities. There are 2 cafes (The Dark Star - open daily 10am till 4pm, Thurs and Fri open 10am - 10pm and Preserved open daily 9am to 6pm, Thurs, Fri, Sat open 9am to late). There is a small supermarket "On the Spot" at the bottom of our road (open daily 8am to 7pm). Orton Bradley Park (5km away) offers extensive walking and biking tracks. We are well-located for multi-day walks on the Banks Peninsula, including the Packhorse Hut and the Rod Donald Hut. Why not stay a night with us at either end of some tramping (leaving your big luggage securely with us); we can pick up and drop you off by pre-arrangement. We are also ideally situated for walking up Mount Herbert, the largest mountain on the Banks Peninsula. This walk takes approx. 6 hours round-trip. There are also local, shorter walks, including the cliff track walk, which offers spectacular views. There are at least 2 beaches within walking distance.
