Duncan was a great host and great communicator, even when he was not around, we kept in touch so that everything went smoothly. Would happily recommend to others for a next visit to Christchurch :)

Duncan's place has all the basic amenities anyone would need. My family and I were moving to Christchurch and needed a place to stay for a few days before we confirmed our long-term residence and this place just perfect. We arrived a little later than expected and found the home to be warm and cosy, which we truly appreciated especially during this cold season and having 2 young children with us. Kitchen with everything needed to whip up a meal, bedroom were clean and had comfortable. And the view is beautiful! If you a looking for a cosy, quaint, peaceful place, Duncan's is the place for you.

We were very lucky to have stayed at Duncan's place. The view was very nice. And it's very close to the city. 10/10

Duncan's place is nestled in a perfect part of Christchurch; just outside. The views from his place are absolutely incredible. The property itself is a two bedroom, one bath home with a beautiful family room/kitchen. It is equipped with a washer, and all necessary appliances and cooking utensils. For chilly fall/winter days like when we stayed, Duncan has a heat pump and a nice wood burning stove with plenty of fire wood to ensure your stay is comfortable and warm. I would highly, highly recommend Duncan's place for your stay in/just outside of Christchurch! 10/10, beautiful place.

Duncan was a very responsive host who made sure our stay was homely and excellent. The view from the living room is insane, especially when the sun rises. It also provides easy access to town. Would recommend it to others.

I'm a 57 year old male international environmental lawyer. I have lived in Europe and the US for much of my life but now I mainly live in New Zealand, in theory - but I travel a great deal to international meetings; mainly in NY but also all over the place. I'm lucky enough to live in the South Island so I'm torn between the mountains and the ocean, so I also ski, sail, hike (tramp) and sea kayak.
