  • At Audrey's, you immediately feel at home. He is a very warm person, with whom I loved chatting. Her house is charming and the bathroom a real pleasure! Ideal for stopping on the road when going down south, I highly recommend. Outstanding hospitality. Thanks again for everything, it was a real pleasure.

    Emma2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely three night stay at Audreys beautiful home. The bedroom was large and so comfortable, a fabulous bathroom and a very welcome and relaxing break from life on the road. We will definitely stay again if in the area. Thank you again!

  • Would highly recommend Deb and Bills self contained guest house. It is very comfortable and very well equipped for self catering. WiFi and TV worked well which was useful for us as we had decided to stay to get out of bad weather and have a break from camping. Shower was also great. All in all a great stay

  • One of the best Airbnb’s I have stayed in. This tiny house has everything and the hosts are just lovely. Very good alternative to staying at Tekapo which is only 30 - 40 Minutes drive away. 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

    Rakaia, Canterbury, 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!

    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.

    Walnut Tree Cottage is next to the family home. It is a peaceful room with a queen sized bed, quality linen, wifi. The bathroom is located in the main house where you have access to your own toilet facilities, shared shower, laundry & kitchen. The property is located on 1 acre of land with stunning views of the Southern Alps, only 10 minutes drive to Darfield, 45 mins to nearest ski fields, 30 mins to Christchurch Airport. We have cats, dog, chooks, sheep, alpaca, bees and cheeky lorikeet.
    Walnut Tree Cottage sits under the old Walnut Tree and looks out onto heritage apple and pear trees. We have over 100 roses for you to enjoy from spring to summer. There are lovely spaces to sit and enjoy a glass of wine, beer or something lighter around the property. The room has tea/coffee facilities, quality linen, electric blankets and unlimited free wifi.
    Walnut Tree Cottage is located in the quiet tranquility of one of the first farming settlements of Canterbury, Greendale. While traffic noise is usually limited to harvesting times there are roosters, laying chooks, demanding pet sheep, possums stealing walnuts and the dawn chorus; however on a clear night the view of the milky way is second to none!
  • Karen's place was so clean, tidy and lovely. Her hospitality was great! We really relaxed and enjoyed. We highly recommend Karen's lovely cottage.

    Eri2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • You will live Karen's place. Very relaxing. Clean and quirky. Beautiful. Would love to come back.

    Marijan2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Walnut Cottage at Karen's was the highlight of our trip to NZ! Located in a peaceful area outside of Christchurch gives a great opportunity to rest after long driving. Karen is a wonderful host, greeted us in the afternoon and introduced to her family members (animals included) which we were really looking forward to! We had a lovely chat about the animals, the farm and all kind of stuff - next day following Karen's and her daughter Ruby-Rose's recommendations we drove to Castle Hill - a rocky hill where LOTR and Chronicles of Narnia were filmed. We had a great time playing with the cats and Benji the lorikeet. Wifi signal is obviously stronger by the main house, but there were no issues with managing to stream in the evening one of the LOTR films ;) Following other airbnb reviews we asked for the cooked breakfast and we loved it! A perfect omelette with roasted kumara and kale with fresh vegetables from the garden was exactly what we needed after 2 weeks of eating toast with PB&J. We will never forget the warmth and kindness that Karen spreads around her and shares with her guests. Would love to come back some day!

    Anna2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • This little oasis just out of Christchurch is a perfect spot to unwind! Karen is an amazing and welcoming host and will do everything in her power to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Yummy breakfast is available, too! 😋

    Peter2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is tastefully furnished with a fridge, a big bed and a small table. We enjoyed our stay very much - Karen is a very nice and caring hostess. Highly recommended.

    Kathrin2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Karin and Nick are wonderful hosts; kind and generous. Communication prior to arrival was speedy and clear. We thought that this was an excellent Air BnB experience. It was easy to settle in as we were given a smiley warm welcome. The makings of a cereal breakfast was provided in the cottage but we chose to have a cooked breakfast of cheese omelette made with fresh laid eggs, fried potatoes and ratatouille with toast, tea and coffee. It was magnificent! If you like heritage style and friendly ambience, love home made goodies and enjoy the company of animals then you’re in for a treat staying at Walnut Tree Cottage. It’s a comfortable and quirky place. There’s a pleasant little outdoor seating area underneath the Walnut tree where you can while away some time cracking and munching walnuts! It was all just our style. Karin makes beautiful hand made soap and we couldn’t resist buying several bars from an extensive choice to take back for ourselves in the U.K. and as gifts for friends Be aware that, as is made clear in the booking information, there is a short walk from the cottage to the bathroom.

    Bluestone Retreat is located on the shores of Lake Ellesmere
  • Rae was super friendly and accommodating, so was her partner, Brendan. Rae's place is the tidiest and most clean farm house I've ever been to; it's pretty stylish too. My room was of medium size, yet it's super comfortable and welcoming. Also, just for a little bit extra, you can enjoy delicious dinner cooked by Rae herself!!

    Merina2020-01-31T00:00:00Z

    5 minutes from the beach; the mouth of the Rakaia River, a well known salmon fishing site; and Lake Ellesmere Waihora; on a working farm growing saffron, walnuts and forestry. There are plenty of friendly animals and maybe a freshly laid egg for breakfast. 45-50 minutes drive south from Christchurch city, 10 minutes east of state highway 1. The nearby villages boast outlets for local arts, crafts and antiques, and a fine swimming pool for the many hot summer days.
  • Very quiet, comfortable, relaxing stay with all the necessary amenities for self catering. Immaculately clean. Highly recommended

    Helen2020-03-11T00:00:00Z

    Daniel2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • After 3 weeks of camping and moving from the North Island to the South and back towards Christchurch for our return trip home, it was the PERFECT location for us to find out resting feet, relax and enjoy the NZ country atmosphere and all while not being far from Christchurch airport. Karens property is so lovely and the afternoon visits from her cat (sorry cant remember his name) and Bonny her beautiful little pooch made the stay even more welcoming. They made us feel like we were home and we were family. The house is so lovely, a yesteryear feel with new modern updates inside made the spot perfect. You are a stones throw from Karen's house and close enough to know someones nearby if assistance is needed but you are in a separate yard and have your privacy to rest and relax. The house is fully equipped with amenities to do washing and cook meals which we didnt find in other airbnbs and we enjoying doing to keep eating out costs down, however, if you want to eat out, town was about a 5 minute drive away. Thoroughly loved our stay at Karens Property. Highly Recommended

  • You will love staying with Vikki on her peaceful lifestyle block. I had been traveling for months and I needed calm and some where to feel like I belonged. Vikki is kind and funny and so great to sit a while and chat about life. Her family are so welcoming, from her mum to her little bundles of joy grandkids. To see them together the love shines out. I told Vikki I was homesick and I missed a roast dinner and she cooked me one with veggies she had grown and it was just what I needed. I felt peaceful and grounded. The bed is amazing, the room large with a big built in wardrobe. I could park my camper van easily and there was a lovely garden and a space to hang laundry. The house is super clean and everything looks new. I could use the kitchen to cook and I had space in the fridge. Although it is in the country side you can get to Christchurch easily. You can also go to Akaroa which is a beautiful village and bay. I also went to the gorge. The only down side was that I didn't want to leave! I hope I come back and I hope you have as wonderful stay as I did.

  • We had a great night’s sleep at Paul’s place. Great value for money, good privacy and fantastic bathroom!

    Meetal2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Paul and Hana were super great host. Though my wife and I stayed for 1 night only, but the house and amenities were superb. Both Paul and Hana were very welcoming. The directions on check in were super clear. Location of the place was ideal as it is a short 5 mins drive to various restaurants and supermarket. The room was super clean and very comfortable. Overall I would recommend to you guys if you need a place to stay that is in a quiet neighborhood. Would stay here again if we were to come back to NZ.

    Shi Jing2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • The room is very comfortable and perfectly clean. Also it is equipped with everything you need (microwave, fridge, water heater, etc.). Tea and coffee are provided as well. The bathroom is very large with two sinks, shower and bathtub. We really enjoyed our stay. Paul and Hana are also very supportive with recommendations about what you can do around Christchurch. Travel magazines are available in the room.

    A country stay south of Christchurch just off Route 1. Near Burnham (Military Camp), Rolleston, IZone and the Selwyn Equestrian Centre. Self contained (en suite) accomodation which is part of a professional equestrian facility (sadly there are no horses to ride; but you can bring your own). As this is a working equestrian facility you may hear life starting around 7:30am with the horses as the quad bike is needed for mucking and feeding out.
    Self Contained Flat. 2xHeat Pumps/Air Con (Bedroom and Longe). Very well insulated (cool in summer/warm in winter). Bedroom has king bed with Ensuite Showeroom.
    Quiet (Rural).
  • Perfect! Spent a couple of days there and it was just like a home away from home, loved it. Highly recommend

    Jordan2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is a first class unit. Met my must haves - good wifi, comfortable bed and great shower. Everything else was up there with the best.

  • Tony’s unit was a fantastic base for exploring Canterbury and beyond. The apartment is generously proportioned, with modern amenities and a comfortable bed. The kitchen is perfect, with everything you need to cook meals (with grocery stores about 15 mins down the road). Everything was spotlessly clean when we arrived, and there were thoughtful touches including extra linen and towels if needed during our stay. There was also a front loader washing machine for laundry which was very handy. Tony was a great host and made our stay a breeze. Highly recommend.

    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.

    Homebush Cottage is part of the 120 yr. old former Homebush School, located on the Southern Scenic Route and close to popular Skifields, Lakes and amazing tourist destinations, thus making us the perfect stopover. The cottage is set on 3 acres including beautiful rambling gardens and tennis court. The accommodation is decorated in a comfortable cottage style suitable for a couple. We provide a self catering breakfast including free range eggs from Orpington hens so no need to worry about food !!
    HOMBUSH SCHOOL COTTAGE is perfect for travellers, a cosy and warm stopover to relax before heading off on the INLAND SCIENIC ROUTE to the WEST COAST or South to WANAKA and QUEENSTOWN.
    WINTER TIME IS HERE !!! We are in very close proximity to 3 fantastic Ski fields !!!!!!! PORTERS HEIGHTS SKI FIELD 46 mins 52 Kms away MT HUTT SKI FIELD 1 hour, 52kms away CRAIGIEBURN SKI FIELD 1 hour, 68kms away If skiing isnt your thing then what about exploring: WASHPEN FALLS 25 kms 20 mins away described as 'a pocket of paradise where Moa once roamed' and offers a unique outdoor experience in a breathtaking natural setting. This fascinating walk starts at The Old Woolshed and takes you through an ancient Volcanic Canyon filled with lush Native Bush and wonderful birdlife (2 hours mod fitness loop track ) CASTLE HILL 51 km away 41 mins The grand limestone rock battlements of Kura Tawhiti led early European travellers to name the unique area CASTLE HILL. The track loops its way around magnificent limestone rock formations but the joy in the area is heading off the track and exploring at your own pace the natural cultural historic and recreational values.
  • Janetta's place is comfortable, quiet, and clean; I recommend it to others.

    Rosslyn2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • We used this property as an overnight stopover on the way from Nelson to Wanaka - perfectly located close to Christchurch and the Inland Scenic Highway. Beautifully appointed detached cottage in the grounds of the hosts house, quiet and secure off the main road. Comfortable bedroom and bathroom with ample kitchen and lounge space. Really liked the extra touches such as fresh bread and farm eggs as well as milk left ready for us. Really excellent place and would be comfortable as a stay for several days.

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!!

  • Pamela and her husband are the NICEST people. Honestly one of the best AirBnb’s I have stayed at in terms of hospitality. She has three lovely Pugs who are super friendly, and they even had a few puppies too! The beds are super comfortable, and Pamela truly makes you feel at home.

    Jax2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • We booked at the last minute because we were delayed on our journey towards Arthurs Pass, and were lucky to find a host as welcoming as Pamela. We were made to feel at home, were able to cook ourselves a meal, and get a great night’s sleep. Everything was perfect.

    James2020-02-19T00:00:00Z

Thank you very much, we would definitely stay again. The place is modest and very comfortable and homely.

  • Easily one of the best airbnbs ive stayed in. Pamela is a very thoughtful host giving great local tips, making breakfast, and helping us wash dishes. We had great conversations with her and she gave us a tour of her beautiful garden full of veg, flowers and fruit trees. You can see other animals like chickens, goat and sheep as well. We also saw a lot of stars at the house. The pugs are very cute and friendly too!

    My place is close to great views of the Southern Alps and away from the hustle and bustle of city living. It is a peaceful country escape. 10 mins to Darfield & 20 mins to Rolleston, and 30 mind to Christchurch or Christchurch airport. My place is good for couples and families (with kids). We are only a few minutes away from the hot air ballooning and an hour from the ski fields. The nearest golf course is only 5 mins down the road with several others available in the Selwyn distict.
    This is a completely self contained two bedroom unit. Includes washing machine, dryer, microwave, 2 hobs, bench top oven, electric fry pan, slow cooker, coffee plunger, toaster, sky TV, free wifi and heatpump.
    We live in a small village with only a small cluster of houses surrounded by farm lands.

    Bienvenue a la French Connection. Mon Paradis is situated in Rolleston, not far from Christchurch, where you can head in any direction, be it the ski fields, the West Coast, head North or South but consider a visit to a unique place in New Zealand, Akaroa. Akaroa has a French colonial history dating from 1840. I can advise you on activities to do there, less than 1.5 hours away. I enjoy speaking French or English to guests and helping you with anything you may need during your stay.
    Mon Paradis is a calm place in a modern subdivision near shopping and restaurants. The decor includes many little touches from France and some of these are included in your private room. You have private access to French and English magazines and books and DVDs and a flat-screen TV. In the winter there's a logfire to share and in summer there's your own garden patio. Quality drapes ensure the morning sun doesn't wake you too early. For couples, solo adventurers, or business and scientific travellers. Easy access to airport (25 mins) Not far from Lincoln University but you'll need a car.
    Rolleston is a booming town close to Christchurch. It's sandwiched between the Port Hills and the great Southern Alps and is a blend of urban and rural experiences with wineries, lavender growing nearby. My neighbourhood is an ultra modern subdivision with green spaces, tennis courts and easy walks.

    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.

  • 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!

    Becky2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • This unit is pristine! Super comfortable bed, great shower pressure, very thoughtful amenities and right on the lake. Wish I could have stayed longer

    Jenna2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Amanda and her husband! A warm personal welcome and a very clean, comfortable Airbnb. Breakfast is provided ( cornflakes, yoghurt, bread and spreads). 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.

  • 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.

    Lina2020-03-04T00:00:00Z

    We are 1 1/2 km from the main road on a lifestyle block with sheep, chickens, 2 cats and a goldfish pond. The house is nestled in a 3 acre garden, and we have visiting quail, pukeko, ducks and a number of bird species. There is plenty of room for parking.
  • Was a great experience!

    New home set in a private back section very quiet. Close to town centre.
  • We did not have the pleasure of meeting them but his grandson treated us very well. The house has many personal touches and is quite spacious. The bed is very comfortable and we really liked having a television in the room. The house is also very clean.

    Nicolas2018-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic accommodation and friendly hosts. Hot water pressure is to die for. Will be using for my next trip to vegas

    Nicole2018-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Bruce and Leah are great hosts, the house is sparkling from top to bottom. I couldn't recommend them enough.

    Large open plan kitchen. Two Large rooms, one Queen size bed in a common area (which incorporates the kitchen) and the other a king size bed in a large spacious bedroom. This accommodation unit is situated on a working farmlet in the quietness of the countryside with all the comforts of home. Common room with queen bed, includes full kitchen, microwave, oven, fridge, fireplace, bathroom, television, and DVD player. A private garden is also part of the quiet countryside accommodation.
    Amazing large rooms accommodate two guests or four. All my guests have remarked about the spaciousness and comfort of the rooms, and the quietness and tranquility of the countryside. Part of a working farm that has cows, calves, chickens, Friesian horses, working dogs and two cats. I also offer a horse drawn carriage drive to our local vineyard for winetasting, or just a leisurely carriage drive in the countryside, for a small extra fee. (arranged after check-in)
    Set in a quiet rural area but only 10 minutes drive from the nearest shopping area (Rolleston) with fuel station, supermarkets, restaurants, takeaways, gift shops and everything that the larger shopping malls have to offer without the congestion of the city. Your accommodation is only 50- 90 minutes drive from all the major ski field ( Mt Hutt, Porters ski area, Mount Cheeseman) and 45 minutes from the beach, making it possible to ski in the beauty of the Southern Alps during the day and visit the beach in the afternoon/evening and watch the sun go down. There are beautiful walking tracks only 40 minutes drive away, and a river just a few minutes drive from the farm to cool off on those hot summer evenings.
  • Great facilities. Quiet location.

    Stephen2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice place to stay. Lovely decoration and hope one day I will come again.

    Erica2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • I enjoyed my stay at Llea-Annes unit, it was very relaxing and was made to feel like it was my home. It is so good to stay at a air BnB that treats you as a person and not just a paying guest. Everything in the unit was comfortable and clean. I don't know how any reviewers could not enjoy the facilities that were provided, there was provisions in fridge for breakfast and some extras as well. Thank you Llea-Anne for a relaxing stay, and hope to catch up with you again.

    Rex2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Wow. This tour left me speechless in the best way. Most horse treks are made up of horses who have been turned to drones taught only to follow behind the one in front. This tour was not that. Instead, the horses were well behaved and clearly enjoyed their jobs trekking through the gorgeous New Zealand countryside. If you have previous horse experience, this tour becomes even more fun as you are given the chance to run through fields and climb steep hills. Chris was our tour guide. He clearly enjoys his work and is extremely knowledgeable about what he does. This trek was worth every penny spent. And if I ever find myself back in the area there is no doubt in my mind that I will be back for another tour. If you want a unique experience that takes you to see some of the most beautiful sights New Zealand has to offer, look no further. You’ve found it.

    Renee2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Just what we needed, a peaceful, quiet and very comfortable stop on our way through from Blenheim to Lake Tepako. Llea-Anne is a generous and thoughtful host. The place is large and very clean. We had everything we needed and much more. Wish we could have stayed longer. And bonus, it is on a farm with sheep and horses and an orange tabby who came to welcome us. Made my heart happy.

    Carolyn2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic stay in a spotlessly clean unit. Well appointed for all your needs, this place is suitable for both short and long term stays, as you have room to move, safe parking and although rural, Christchurch is only a 20 minute drive away. The host, Llea-Anne is a pure delight trying to assist you, and has a wealth of local knowledge, and tips for your stay. You will not be disappointed in this stay, the location is impressive and has fantastic views of the Southern Alps. A must stay in the Canterbury region, don't miss out.

    Sheryl2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place! Amazing service! Awesome value for money! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and was a lovely relaxing space.

    Haylee2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had 12 nights in a motorhome prior to staying with Helen so the generous room proportions, the tranquil location and the hospitality and provisions provided were perfect for us. It is very well placed for Christchurch airport and yet you are surrounded by acres of farmland.

  • I was looking for a place near the Christchurch airport but away from city congestion. Jennys' place was perfect, very close to airport, easy to find but in a quiet country setting. Jenny and Richard are excellent hosts I felt very welcomed from the get go. As Jenny would say "come as a guest leave as a friend" She goes over the top as a host. I would highly recommend staying in their home if you are in the area. Thanks Jenny and Richard! :) John
