  • Heaven on earth! My absolute favourite, if you are lucky enough to secure a booking, you will join the rest of us who were truely blessed to share this piece of paradise with our thoughtful host.

    Maria-Lee2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • One of the coolest places I have stayed in. The cottage is so pretty with lovely views, you could sit on the porch and relax all day long. It has everything you need for your stay and also a yummy welcome treat to start your stay. After checking in and speaking to the lovely owners we realized there was so much more to this place. We took a walk around to explore and came across some amazing vintage cars, old garages and an old shop. The homestead was beautiful with lovely gardens surrounding it. The owners do such a great job in maintaining the grounds. I would recommend staying here if you are in the area. I hope to make it back here again and for longer next time.

    Emma2020-02-28T00:00:00Z

  • I had a wonderful week in The Lake Cottage. I was travelling on my own, and also being an author, writing was on the itinerary... and what a retreat to spend time at the laptop just enjoying the view and the wildlife. Carol was a great host and Coniston is highly recommended.

    John2020-02-25T00:00:00Z

    Warm and cosy home, nice and quiet yet really close to town.Guests can use the driveway for offsteet parking. 50" Smart TV with netflix and lightbox. Supermarket, Restaurants, bars, takeaways all within three blocks. Bbq free to use. I also have two Mountain bikes that are available to use with the bike tracks so close is a great way to spend a couple of hours. Christchurch airport is 1hr drive, Take a 30 minutes drive to Methven where you can hire Ski gear and catch a ride up to Mt Hutt.
    1970' s brick home pretty original, all insulated with a heatpump to keep warm in the winter. Clean and tidy 3 bedroom home with separate lounge and dining. The lounge has a 50" smart tv with Netflix and lightbox included. Laundry has a washing machine that is there to use.
    Nice and quiet street right next to the Cancer Society. Only two blocks to the main street. Also in the other direction is the bike track whick on one side of the river you can bike or walk to Lake hood. And on the near side you can bike east to the beach, roughly 20kms one way. And there is also a bike track heading West with jumps etc. 30 minute drive to Methven. And about 1hour drive to Christchurch. 1hr 45 minutes to Lake Tekapo and the start of the hydro canals which also has great fishing.
  • The house is old but functional. Gareth keeps it clean and tidy. It is located in a quiet street off the main road. Gareth provides clear instructions and communicates well. The bed we slept on was comfortable and the bed linen felt nice. Gareth provides lots of towels and tea towels which is nice. The kitchen is well equipped to prepare meals. There are extras such as cling wrap and foil. The water pressure in the shower is not strong but there is plenty of hot water. The wifi was strong and fast. Overall we enjoyed our stayed.

    Nat2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great house to call home during our stay. My 3 yr old loved the garden and it was sage to let him run around. Lovely quiet neighbourhood with minimal traffic and really close to shops ans town centre. House was super clean and had everything we needed. Will definitely stay again x

    Jodie2020-03-03T00:00:00Z

    Mandy2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Once you get beyond the fence, the front yard is like walking into a public garden. The large windows let you enjoy all the colors and beauty from the inside too! We were only there for one night, but Gareth was a great host. We also enjoyed a delicious dinner at Speight's Ale House.

  • Could not fault my experience at Ainsleys Place. The accommodation was great value, decor stylish and clean. The bed very comfortable . For my first airbnb this place has set a very high standard.

    Leanne2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location in a quite, right outside of town country apartment. Anisleys mom was very welcoming and attentive. The morning breakfast for a small fee was delicious. Would highly recommend.

    Dugald2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Ainsley’s was great! A peaceful spotless and well-equipped place, with an amazingly comfortable bed! Nice decoration as well. It was a real pleasure to meet our hosts who are very friendly. It’s a pity we only stayed for one night but if we ever come back to New-Zealand we won’t miss to go back! They gave us some nice tips for our trip to the Catlins as well. We warmly recommend!!

    Modern decor, comfortable on a secluded back section with lovely garden view. Very close to town centre so all amenities (shops, cinema, etc.), including a number of good restaurants, are within walking distance. Off street parking just in front of house.
    Spacious open plan living/dining area.
    Ashburton is a "rural" town of some 18000 people. Although we have no major tourist attractions (though we have a rather remarkable Aviation Museum) we are only an hour from Christchurch and make a good base for day trips to the mountains to the west, as well as north- and southwest.
  • Perfect location, very comfortable.

    Andrew2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Carolies place is very centrally located being close by to shops, cafes & restaurants. It was spacious enough for four of us & was exceptionally clean.

    Nicole2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay, very clean with loads of space, also very close to all amenities.

  • Great place nice and private very clean and comfortable close to shops and restaurants

    Lindsay2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Carolie's house is spacious, clean: really excellent! Everything was perfect for our short family overnight stay in the area with two comfortable bedrooms, a nice bathroom and everything you need in the kitchen. Excellent communication with Carolie who made sure in person that everything was correct. The rather slow Wi-Fi connection was the only thing that bothered us a bit, having to work on the internet. However, it is sufficient for emails. So we recommend this house if you are around!

    Jean-Maximilien2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Carolie's house was spacious with plenty of equipment, comfortable bed, excellent shower and convenient to town centre. There were some local Internet difficulties the evening we stayed and Carolie responded very quickly and did her best to get the wifi sorted, albeit unsuccessfully. We reallyenjoyed our stay and it was fantastic value.

    This started out as just a bnb room but I have since reorganised and now as well as the roomy bedroom that has a queen bed and a single, I have added a small sitting room and a third room that has a fold out table and chairs and cooking facilities, fridge etc. With the addition of a double Murphy bed in the sitting room, the guest suite now sleeps 5. You have your own access and self check-in option if required, making this a totally private and self contained unit.
    My home is very close to the iconic Ashburton Domain, home to many sports...hockey, tennis, football, cricket. Ashburton hospital is also a short walk. My place is ideal if you are visiting a sick relative or here for a sporting event. The new EA Networks sports stadium is just a 5 min walk as well. There you will find swimming, spa & sauna, as well as a fantastic gym, basketball stadium and cafe.
    This a quiet suburban st, all of Ashburton is easily accessible from here.
  • For it's price point the property was exactly what we needed and the cute, super friendly dogs we're awesome. Vicki was lovely and super helpful.

    Our Lovely Country Sleepout is modern and cosy. Completely separate from our home for privacy. It is very sunny and it has a lovely view of our trees and paddocks. It has a small fridge and tea and coffee making facilities in the single room. I have also added a small microwave to heat food. (Please note I have removed the additional extra of breakfast in the morning and have dropped my price to suit this change)
    You are welcome to walk around our large section and even say hello to our 4 lambs in the front paddock. If you have a child they can play on the trampoline and the swings.
  • Place was very cute! The hosts had 4 sheep that were all very sweet. Jo was incredibly communicative, but still left you to have privacy. Would definitely stay here again! Also, the water pressure in the shower was heavenly.

    Christian2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Jos Place was clean, easy to find and a good price. Not too far off the main road but still in the country which allowed for a wonderful nights sleep. They accommodated​ for our rather large vans and trailers and were very hospitable. Thanks for the wonderful stay, we would recommend this to anyone.

    Elysia2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to stay in Ashburton I would really recommend it to anyone just a bit out of town to be quiet but close enough to go to town. Great host and very very clean. I would stay again in a flash

    Meral2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to stay if you want a rural getaway. Very comfortable bed and breakfast provided. No kitchen but if you are not looking for this it is perfect. Quiet rural area we enjoyed our stay.

  • The pictures don’t do it justice! Amanda’s place is so peaceful, set on Lake Hood, and she and Graham have the kayaks waiting for you! We didn’t get a chance to take them out but we’d love to come back and stay longer. Everything was very clean, the bed comfortable, and a good breakfast selection provided. What a value!

You can use the kayaks or walk around the lake, the location is nice and quiet. We would definitely stay here again and recommend this Airbnb to others.

    Mike En Simone2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Super pleasant stay in the studio that Amanda offers. It is located close to a lake. The place is peaceful and Amanda is very welcoming. We are very satisfied with this getaway and we recommend it with your eyes closed.

Was really thankful that the bathroom has a washing machine and laundry detergent is provided aswell. PS. When you drive through nearby fairlie stop at the fairlie bakehouse and have a pie. Best pie I have had in New Zealand

    A Genuine 1930s, historic workers cottage, set in a very peaceful 10 acre garden. This farm cottage has been left mostly unused over the last 90 years and comes replete with vintage memorabilia, a wood fired stove, a deep bath claw-foot bath and copper-head shower. Although it looks a bit rough, it is very cosy and full of charm
    A place where you can hear the birds sing, the wind blow and see the stars. Set in a fruit and nut orchard. Sometimes you may have sheep on your doorstep.
    The Selwyn district has many lakes, rivers, mountains and wide open beaches. 10 Minutes drive down the road is the town of Leeston, with cafes, a pub, a large gym (free to use for guests) and a supermarket.
  • Would totally recommend for a farm style escape from normality. The cottage has everything you need plus some!

    Zoe2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • I had a wonderful two weeks here. The space was cosy and much nicer than I expected. The two city dogs loved the chance to romp around outside in fresh country air, chasing rabbits and making friends with the visiting fantails. The house offers a glimpse into 1930s living without the actual hardship (air conditioning in summer was a luxury!) - would be a very cool destination for tourists wanting to check out country NZ or locals wanting to experience a touch of nostalgia. Host was friendly, thoughtful, and courteous. Billy the dog was hilarious and enjoyed showing off his skills with the football. I would highly recommend to all!

    Ninety-year-old character bungalow style home in the heart of town - close to everything Ashburton is famous for: snow; lakes and botanical gardens. Friendly, easy-going, informative hosts are happy to share convivial conversation in front of the fire or leave you to your privacy in your very comfortable, private bedroom. Added extras: very fast fibre internet; off-street secure parking; full, hot breakfast or European if you so desire; and a very friendly dog.

  • It was a lovely stay in a beautiful character home with Robert & Thi. Everything was immaculate, it was close to town & easy to find, Robert was really accommodating with our changing plans & we felt very welcome there. We also got great tips on where to eat for dinner & how to get there too. We didn’t get to stay for breakfast, but it was a nice touch to have it included in our stay. Thank you for everything!

    Catherine2019-11-24T00:00:00Z

    Set on farm land close to Ashburton our views of Mt Hutt ski field and the Southern Alps are beautiful. With a large private floor space, private entry and a skylight for star gazing above the bed, our loft is a pretty special place. This modern suite is well appointed with kitchenette facilities and a large ensuite. A warm comfortable and quiet environment to rest. Trotts Garden, Restaurants and Ashburton township 2 minutes drive Chch airport 1 hour drive Lake Hood 15 minutes drive
    This new studio suite is well appointed with a kitchenette including sink, fridge, microwave and everything you need to make a good breakfast. The large ensuite with amazing shower pressure is a real treat for weary travellers. We offer a very generous and private quiet space to enjoy the country in a new bed. Given the floor area it easily accommodates a family of four or can give a traveller space to enjoy. Book Exchange - Basket full of books in the room
    We love our property for the feeling of space, country living, friendly sheep, picking berries straight from the bush, and the relaxed atmosphere. I love waking up to the sun streaming into the kitchen and seeing the sheep and chickens grazing happily in the paddock. Being well away from the main road we don't get any traffic or train noise in the night so you will wake rested. Our suite has its own entry so is a very private space. It would make a great honeymoon or brides retreat for getting ready for her wedding day. Trotts garden is only 1 kilometre up the road. Peace of mind for parking -With a large secure area for parking we can accommodate boats, trailers, caravans. Caravan plug available.
  • Rachel is the perfect host that any Airbnb guest hopes to get.  Everything was perfect during our stay. My kids Lara and Hulk loved the time they have played with the sheep and dog :).   Definitely highly recommended!! :-) Thanks, Rachel

  • We really enjoyed our stay here. Rachel is an incredible host, thinking of things she could do that may make our stay with a toddler a little easier and introducing him to the locals (sheep, chickens and Maeve). The studio was spotless and exactly as described. The views are amazing and, even though you feel like you're miles away from town, it's only five minutes to the main centre of town. Would definitely stay again and absolutely recommend it to others.

    Simon2019-10-20T00:00:00Z

    Our Farm Cottage is a very warm little cottage with all the mod-cons. Whether you're passing through or need a home base while exploring the South Island, you'll love our cottage! The farm is a small block and home to cows, calves, a few pigs, a couple of dogs, two cats and your friendly hosts Paul and Dale. As an added bonus - Paul and Dale love showing guests around their farm! The apartment has great Wifi and a washing machine for your laundry
    This is an authentic farm cottage with toilet access from the verandah. There is lots of room to park a camper or a couple of cars if required. The photos don't show the couch sofa that has been added downstairs, and now there is a kettle, toaster, electric fry pan etc that guests can use. All bedding is included. The cottage is well insulated, so it's nice and cool on these hot summer days. We've recently added a washing machine to the cottage, so you can wash your clothes. Perfect for those long stays!
  • We absolutely loved this cottage, it's one of the nicest Airbnb's we have stayed in! It has so many thoughtful touches throughout the cottage and we loved the style of it. Very cute and cosy. Excellent communication with clear instructions. Highly recommend! Thanks again!

Also provides solitude away from the beaten track. Very comfy loft bed where you can see the stars from on a clear night. Exceptionally friendly and helpful hosts. It has been renovated by clever use of recycled materials giving it the one-off experience 👍😊😊

  • One night stay at the lake so we have a very wonderful experience, and Beverley walks, and share stories of the family, beautiful scenery, friendly people, happy to share life bit by bit. Australia hopes fires do not spread, and also blessed Beverley daughter can all the best in Perth!

    Brand new in winter 2018! This beautiful studio apartment is part of Northfield luxury accommodation, yet provides you with complete privacy. Northfield is a pretty special spot – a rural retreat set in 4 acres of gardens and paddocks, yet just a 10 minute walk from the bars and restaurants in town. A perfect base for a ski holiday, to explore the area, or to just kick back and have a relaxing weekend.
    The Studio at Northfield is located next to the original 1914 homestead (see separate listing for Northfield luxury accommodation) but provides you with complete privacy. The property is set in 4 acres of gardens and paddocks, so has a beautiful outlook and peaceful feeling, and yet is only a short 10 minute walk to the bars & restaurants in the centre of Methven. The Studio is a purpose built studio-apartment with a comfortable king sized bed, ensuite bathroom and open plan living/dining/kitchen area. The space is bright and airy with stylish decor and luxury fixtures and fittings. Comfy leather sofas, a 49" tv with Netflix and complimentary wifi are provided for your relaxation. The kitchenette includes a hob, microwave, fridge and Nespresso coffee machine. In the bathroom, towels, bathrobes and luxury bathroom products are provided for your use. Complimentary teas, coffees, fruit and cookies are also provided. Please note: we have a dog on the property.
    Methven is a beautiful place to visit – with skiing in winter and a wealth of stunning outdoor scenery and activities in summer. It has all the restaurants, bars and facilities you need, yet with a relaxed country town vibe. Methven is just over an hour from Christchurch airport, 20 minutes to the nearest large town (Ashburton) and 40 minutes to Mt Hutt skifield. It is a fantastic base for day trips, with many fantastic places within a short drive - including Castle Hill (where they filmed the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe), Mt Sunday (Edoras in Lord of the Rings), Lakes Coleridge, Camp or Clearwater, or the Rakaia River. Methven is a base for all sorts of outdoor activities including skiing, heli-skiing, horse-riding, jet-boating, hot air ballooning, rafting, scenic flights and walking. Or if you need some down time, we have massage therapy, beauty therapy or a boutique cinema in town. In the evening Methven has a variety of pubs and restaurants ranging from an Irish Bar or traditional pubs to fine dining restaurants, Japanese, Thai, Indian,Italian and bistros.
  • An absolute gem of an airbnb. Everything was of exceptional high quality and the hosting was excellent.

    John2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful, stylish space perfect for a weekend away. We had quite a late check in but the lovely Arlene popped over to introduce herself and ensured we had everything we needed. The room was spotless and had everything you could’ve needed including a Nespresso coffee machine, hairdryer, iron and board and large TV with Netflix. The bed and linen were comfy and luxurious, and the high quality toiletries were a nice touch. A short and easy 5-10min walk to Methvens pubs, cafes and shops. A perfect place for couples for a weekend or longer.

    Heather2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Probably one of the best AirBNB places we have ever stayed in. The property is beautiful and tranquil. The fitout of the room is stylish with lots of nice little touches. 5 star accommodation at a reasonable price. We will be back!

  • Good place to stay in Methven. Near the heart of the town with Nice pubs and restaurants. Nice studio, clean and quiet. WiFi can be slow sometimes, but to be honest, in general in NZ it's been pretty slow everywhere.

  • Leonie and Peter’s AirBnB provided me with a very comfortable place to break up a long journey and rest. I unfortunately didn’t get a chance to explore the local area but there appeared to be plenty of information available!

    James2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely place nestled amongst the mountains that is close to many outdoor activities. Warm hosts who respects your privacy but readily available for any assistance. Enjoy the beautiful backyard. Easy to find LOTR Edoras.

    Our self-contained apartment is just 20 minutes from the ski slopes of Mt Hutt and Mt Sunday, the breathtaking location of Edoras in 'Lord of the Rings'. We're also just 20 minutes to the Boutique Canterbury town of Geraldine. Private, cosy and nestled in a working farm near the rural town of Mayfield. Enjoy great local coffee, while fresh country air is on your doorstep! Other highlights include Mount Somers, a 10 minute drive away, where you'll find the award winning restaurant Stronechrubie.
    Included for all guests is a complimentary mini-bar & light breakfast. This apartment is in a rural setting and is close to all amenities, but unfortunately there is no access to the working farm.
    Friendly and welcoming township, where you can get great coffee or a drink at Panther's Rock - ask them about the legend of the elusive black panther which gave the bar, restaurant and cafe its name!
  • Donna Marie’s Apartment just a few km off the main Tourist Route was the perfect stopover for me. Very peaceful and well appointed, would be a great base to explore the local area over a few days. Wish I had more time to spend. You are close to the main farm house but the apartment still feels very private. Mayfield and several other small towns not far away all have lovely country cafes for meals. And Geraldine or Ashburton an easy half hour drive for more choice if needed.

    Shane2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • a great unit, more spacious than we expected and well equipped with cereals, drinks etc. very comfortable bed and close enough to many destinations - wish we had stayed longer

    Julia2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and clean space!

    Kyle2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • I based myself here and did some hiking around Mt Somers which was a 10 minute drive away. It was a lovely, quiet, surprisingly spacious apartment located down a country road. Perfect for a brief getaway. Host was super friendly and so helpful. I loved her!! Would absolutely recommend this place. Thank you so much for your hospitality!

    Rachel2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great wee spot, loved the breakfast bar!

    Henry2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Quiet, more quiet and the distant sounds of a farm at work. You will travel down the gravel road further than you think and it will be the first property on the left that you come to.

    Dave2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • This place is exactly what the description says, maybe even more. Sparkly clean, very comfy and equipped with all those things which are not big but make your stay much more easy and pleasant (towels, blankets, complimentary breakfast, solid cutlery...). We really enjoyed our stay in this peaceful area and would definitely stay again!

    Karol2020-02-09T00:00:00Z

    My place is close to family-friendly activities , approx 5 mins from the Ashburton township and an hour away from the Christchurch airport and Mt Hutt Skifield. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families (with children). In June 2019 we have added additional accommodation of two beds (without bathroom facilities just along from main unit) and table and chairs. Ideal for groups busy exploring. Bathoom facilities provided in main unit suitable for 6 people.
    Our cottage is 5 mins from the Ashburton township and consists of two bedrooms, a lounge and dining area, a large bathroom, sky tv and wifi access. A cosy electric fire to cuddle up to at night with heating in both bedrooms. A washing machine is located in bathroom and a clothesline outdoors. June 2019 we have added another two single beds to sleeping availability. Table and chairs in this unit but no bathroom facility. This is located in main unit only 10 steps away.
    Nestled beautifully in the country but very close to the Ashburton township, makes this accommodation a private haven and an absolute treat. Fabulous views of rural views and during the months December to May the owners also grow flowers commercially in paddocks so an extra delight!
  • Lovely wee place. Really enjoyed our stay here. Thanks Jo.

    Susan2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay, nice clean house, easy parking and welcoming hosts I would highly recommend staying here.

    Joss2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is quite small, but comfortable and good for a few days. The garden is beautiful and peaceful. Communication with owner was perfect and all went smoothly. We just spent one night, as a stop over, so don’t have much to add on what to do in the area.

    Adriana And Nick2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay. Although a small cottage, it was clean, well decorated and situated in a beautiful garden. We loved the country feel of cows in the paddock next door and bunnies in the garden. Cooking facilities were adequate for simple meals. Thanks Jo.

    Heidi2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
