One bedroom self-contained unit (own private entry/exit) with off street parking (and also on a bus route). Two beds (one in separate bedroom, one as a pullout couch in the lounge), so the unit can take up to 4 guests.
We travel lots ourslves, and use AirBnB, so know what people want and frequetly upgrade the unit. It has lots of extras to make your stay enjoyable - everything from basic food (fresh coffee, heaps of teas, salt/pepper all the way through to olive oil, and tomato sauce!) so if you choose to use the place to cook, you can just buy your main ingredients. Kitchen has eveything you'd find in most homes - from pots/pans, to cuttlery, crockery, wine glasses, etc. Supermarket is super close by too (under 5 min away), so you save $$$ by having some meals @ the unit.
Note: The couch in the lounge has recently (2017) been upgraded, so it's now a proper sprung-mattress, so not only bigger, but also much more comfortable. All bedding provided.
We have also added a second TV in the lounge (in 2017), so now both the bedroom and lounge have a 40" LCD TV, each with an Apple TV (which has a selection of 40+ movies free to watch, and Hulu+ (American service) for streaming hundreds of movies and TV programmes for free) - great to entertain children or adults.
Unit has a baby cot with mattress available on request (no charge, added in late 2016).
In the beach side suburb of Sumner, and is super quiet. You can walk to a beach in 10 minutes, and the unit is 2 min walk from a park with an amazing sea view.
Has its own large outdoor garden space which you can use to soak up the sun, or just sit in the garden.
Wifi (unlimited and fast). Heat pump/air con for heating and cooling.
Queen size bed in the bedroom, plus a pull out couch (double bed) in the lounge for additional guests. Please note standard rate applies for up to two guests, with a small fee thereafter (children under 2 stay for free).
Kitchen is fully equipped with full sized oven, microwave, plus full supply of crockery, cutlery, wine glasses, and lots of kitchen utensils (some guests stay for 1mth+, so it's well set up).
Also comes with iron, hair dryer etc to make the stay as comfortable as possible.

Interaction with guests
Happy to leave you to your own private space/time or if you prefer, give lots of advice about local activities and tourist suggestions in Christchurch and beyond (we travel lots ourselves).

Other things to note
Self contained apartment has its own laundry (washer and dryer) as well as an awesome shower head! The shower is a proper shower unit (not over a bath).
Kitchen is fully equipped - full oven, microwave, brand new pots and pans, all the tools for making things (everything from a cheese grater to a coffee plunger). We also keep some basic food items stocked up - coffee, lots of teas, salt and pepper, olive oil etc
We have had lots of guests stay for one or two nights, through to others have stayed a week, and some guests staying for several months - as it has everything, it's an ideal base to explore the area from and we are happy to give you lots of suggestions/tips about the area and New Zealand in general.
Unit has its own private access, and shares a driveway with our house. Super quiet location in a very safe neighborhood. Off street parking.
FOR THOSE NEW TO AirBnB: Some guests have asked about how private the unit is. This is 100% private. If you rent it, it's yours, and only yours for the duration of the stay. Just like a hotel, it will have clean bedding, towels and all the basics for your stay (if you like good coffee, I supply freshly ground coffee beans on arrival). The unit has a bedroom with a queen size bed, and a separate lounge with a pull out couch/bed (double), as well as a separate large bathroom/laundry and separate toilet. Cot with mattress also available for babies (please bring bedding for babies).
We like to keep things nice and simple, so not to many rules.
- No smoking inside.
- No pets.
Please make sure you select the correct number of guests staying (note: children under 2 stay free).
Please check if wanting to invite over other guests, even for the day. We don't say no, we just like to know :-)
Flexible with check in / check out times - just ask and we'll make it work. As long as we dont need the unit for someone else, then we can be super flexible. If you are arriving super early in the morning (eg 5am Friday), and would like to go straight to the unit to sleep, please remember to book the night before (eg Thursday night) to make sure the unit will be free on your arrival).
Let us know if you have any special requests or would like info on places to eat/things to do. We will do our best to make your stay enjoyable!
