A perfect location for peace and tranquility at the start or end of your trip. Access to the outdoors is within a stones throw of the front door or alternatively, bustling Lyttelton is a 8min ferry ride away.

Airport pickup avail. on request.

The space

This lovely space is wonderful for those who love relaxing and enjoying the beauty of the outdoors. There is walking tracks into the hills and along the coast, within minutes of leaving the front door. Or enjoy time lazing on the deck, in the garden, listening to the birds and reading a good book. Or alternatively, head down to the spectacular Orton Bradley Park with a meandering stream, natural playground (flying fox), bird life, walks and stunning gardens.

Bedroom 1 has a double futon loft loft bed and a single mattress beneath (or area to chill out). And Bedroom 2 has a queen side bed, with lovely leafy views.

We had a lovely time at Katie's house. She was very welcoming with fresh flowers and a note with extra instructions. We enjoyed the beautiful garden and had a relaxing time. Thanks!

We simply loved staying in Katie's home. Peaceful, sunny, homely, relaxing. We had some wonderful sunny days, and enjoyed beautiful walks, a picnic looking out over the ocean, jumping off the wharf, trips to the beach... all so close to Katie's home, perfect. The house is cosy, a lovely batch style home surrounded by trees and green. Neighbourhood and surroundings were as described. Katie left us information on all we needed to know, and was quick and clear in her communications. Would love to stay again!

We enjoyed Katie's place. Perfect distance to Akaroa and Christchurch. Also Lyttleton was a nice trip. The garden was always sunny and very peaceful and the house had everything we needed for our stay of 6 days. Perfect for us as a little family. Katie was very nice, she offered us oranges and couchette from her garden. The communication was fast and I would always recommend to stay here.

Diamond Harbour is a great place to stay and Katie's home is perfectly situated - close to the ferry and lots of great walks.

I have travelled extensively over the past 10 years; from Africa to Asia to Europe to South America to the Middle East. For me, the best parts of any trip, is meeting the locals and sharing vino and food together, as well as hiking around the natural environment and watching some local music.

I've just bought a small house and hope I can return the hospitality I have received over the many years.

Look forward in meeting you!
