  • Claire's Cass Bay Retreat was awesome! It was exactly as it was advertised, clean, calm, simple with outstanding views, light and airy. The perfect place to rest and get oriented after 27 hours of travel! We loved Lyttleton, and also had a great meal at the Governor's Bay Hotel Pub. Thank you Claire for a great start to our trip.

  • Claire’s accommodation was chosen for its proximity to Christchurch airport for our first couple of days in New Zealand. It’s a stunning location with great walks around the bays. It was clean, comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. Looking forward to our return stay at the end of our holiday.

    Rowland2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely cottage with tasteful decor and great living space. All the necessities and thoughtful extras. The surroundong area offers many walks , shopping and swimming opportunities. Claire is very helpful. You can't go wrong and will enjoy a relaxed stay.

    Ralph2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place to stay and very quiet as well! The local town had everything we needed and the ride into Christchurch was a simple Uber ride. The space had everything we were looking for, we highly recommend it!

    Chris2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place! And Uber works perfectly in this area so we didn’t worry about getting around at all. We had so much fun at this cottage and Lyttelton is such a delightful town. Would recommend it to any traveler in Christchurch area.

    Yaqi2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect location to end our New Zealand trip. Great house with a balcony and view. We will be back!

    Sandra2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Claire’s place is exactly as pictured. This was our second stay. The views and location bought us back. Bedroom Is super comfortable and waking up to that view is amazing. Barbecue worked well for us both nights as cooking facilities are minimal and the January weather was perfect. There are some places to eat out or pick up takeaways in Lyttleton, which is only a 5 minute drive away. Highly recommend Claire’s place for a sort stay.

  • We had a great stay in Kristi’s villa and just loved Lyttelton. The location was excellent- with all cafes etc in walking distance and the view of the harbour was amazing! The house is very cute and quirky - with some minor TLC required. A little bit of a squeeze for our family of 5 adults but we made it work just fine.

    Nicole2020-01-07T00:00:00Z

    Katie2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Kristi’s place is a fantastic historical cottage that is walking distance from the centre of Lyttelton. Kristi is a wonderful host who made us feel comfortable with the fire set up and ready to light and a beautiful range of breakfast goodies waiting for us on our arrival.

    Matt2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was located in a lovely setting, the perfect place to stay while exploring Christchurch. It was very private and super clean. Dan and Megan were always quick to respond to questions and needs.

    Ariel2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Dan and Megan’s place is spacious, spotless and comfortable with very up-to-date amenities and superb views. It is a great location for exploring the Banks Peninsula and about 20 minutes by car to central Christchurch. Our hosts were away during our stay so we had no personal contact but they responded without delay to any messages.

    Peter2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

    Oliver2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay! Cass Bay is beautiful and so is this accommodation. We only stayed for one night and was perfect for what we wanted. A short drive into Christchurch. The bath was a great way to relax after a long day of travel/exploring.

    Sarah2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Dan & Megan's place is in Cass Bay, a very nice area and their house has a magnificent view of the bay. We spent a quiet night there. The room is tastefully designed, neat and tidy with the description matches. The only point to note is the access to the room is via a narrow pathway/steps, which one needs to be careful when bringing big suitcases down.

    Phoebe2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great location with a beautiful view. Space was clean, cosy and modern. Recommendations were also really helpful.

Our space suits anyone from travelling professionals, couples, holiday makers or adventurers who love the outdoors. We have a Double Sea Kayak, Home Gym and Spa available.

    Cass Bay is small friendly community based neighborhood, with the beach at your doorstep. Everyone here is very respectful and when you go out for walks most people always say hello. There is a mixture of retired, middle aged & new young families and professional people in the neighbourhood. It's like city meets country in so many ways.

  • What a great home in a great location. Absolutely gorgeous, and anji was beyond hospitable and very quick to communicate with any needs we had. Would absolutely stay here again.

    Thomas2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Anji's house is very stylish and has the incredible sea view. We enjoyed a lot the hot tub as well. Nice stay for our last day of the trip.

    Lucy2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Anji's place us set just a few houses away from Cass Bay's Beach. I took a few walks along the coast to Lyttleton for late night drinks and it is beautiful. Enjoy the hot tub on the deck overlooking the beautiful bay.

    Wesley2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and a lovely home with great views

    Golda2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Anji' s place was perfect for our trip (+ wife & 1.5yr old child). The location was only minutes away by car from Lyttleton and about 30 mins from Christchurch. The house gave great views from the living areas of the local bay. The room itself was comfortable, and she had the single room free for us to put all our bags in. We'd gladly stay again.

    Mayank2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Hospitality, good experience

    Logan2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • Anji was a super host. She was over the top nice, above and beyond. We were pampered to the point of spoiling us. This is what coming to New Zealand is about, the friendliest people in all the world. The accommodation was superb and fulfilled our every need. The walk along the bay was beautiful. We did the summit road; the gondola and the Saturday farmers market all memorable experiences. I would jump at the chance to stay here again.

    Cass Bay, Canterbury, New Zealand

    We are the proud owners and caretakers of a grand old 1890s villa here on Canterbury St, located on a quiet lane in the center of Lyttelton. It is just a 5 minute walk to access the supermarket, bars, shops, restaurants, famous farmers market, public transportation, ferry to Diamond Harbour and Quail Island. We are a friendly and easy-going couple looking forward to meeting new people and helping them enjoy their time here in the quaint port town of Lyttelton.
    We are passionate about the history of our town and our beautiful home, and feel that 57 Canterbury St is a unique place to stay. We are passionate about the history of our town and our beautiful home, and feel that 57 Canterbury St is a unique place to stay. The land was first developed by Samuel Gundry who arrived in Lyttelton abroad the ‘Steadfast’ arriving in Lyttelton in June 1 8 5 1. The first and remaining dwelling was built in July Nineteen hundred and four by Albert Thomas Mutton. Thomas was known as the Carpenter of London St and went on to own 6 properties in Lyttelton. He built houses and sold them on easy terms and kept a grocery store as well. He also built a school and houses in nearby Rapaki for the local iwi. Thomas his wife Ruby and three sons William, James and Thomas resided at this address for some years after it was built up until Nineteen Nineteen according to the Electoral roll. In the 10 years I have lived at this beautiful property, I have along with the help of my husband created rambling gardens producing organic veggies and with 7 voluptuous chickens have a bountiful supply of free range eggs. We have more than our family can consume and would like to share our spoils with our guests offering breakfast for extra $12pp on weekends. There will be a selection of breads to go with your choice of eggs, garden greens, toasted nuts & seeds and homemade condiments plus coffee or tea. In summer we host an online ‘road side stall’ selling fresh produce and condiments grown and made right here with all proceeds going back into the land and maintenance of this grand old girl on Canterbury St that has stood strong for over 100 years. We also have 4 very friendly cats who love a cuddle or 10 and often sit on the mailbox awaiting friends who will pat them and there human mum who will feed them :)
    Lyttelton is a cute port town that is bustling with activity, and boasts some of the best restaurants in Christchurch. There are several great bars in Lyttelton and it is a lively place on the weekends. From Lyttelton there is access to the entire Banks Peninsula, including the iconic Quail Island and Diamond Harbour. There are plenty of great walks around and the hills of Lyttelton that will provide a fantastic workout for even the seasoned hiker. Explore the bush and forest walks via the Urumau Loop and the Whakaupo Loop, A bracing loop walk with great views that takes you up through Whakaraupo Reserve on the Stan Helms Track and back down the historic Bridle Path.
  • A wonderfully relaxed and friendly place, nothing is a problem. A lovely old house in a great area. Very comfortable beds, we certainly hope to be back. Lyttleton is such a nice town, and a brilliant farmers market!!

    Angy2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • This home is as unique as it gets. In Lyttelton you can get everything you need, but if you want to go in town it’s also just a 20min drive/ 40min bus ride. Outstanding hospitality. Didn’t want to leave, but had to. I‘ll be back a 100%.

    Lenn-Vincent2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great place in a cute little town. The market on Saturday is a must do!

    Tessa2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Debbie's house is so quirky, I loved all the things from bygone eras. There are clocks and pictures on the wall to make it feel like you are in the 1940's. The room is very big so you have lots of space and the bed is comfortable. I only spent one night as I am traveling but I felt very at home. Debbie introduced me to her family and the conversation was easy, interesting and a lot of fun. I liked the area, it is near a lovely bay where you can swim or children can paddle safely I really liked the bathroom with the antique sink surround. I would definitely stay with Debbie again.

  • This place instantly felt like home! Staying here calmed me down so much, it brought me closer to myself and it was the perfect start of three months on this beautiful island. The owners are super relaxed, the place and location is beautiful including garden and amazing cats. The area is really good for hiking, the village is just super cute. The fully equipped kitchen is perfect for preparing your meals, I even was able to use some fresh zucchini and tomatoes from the garden. I honestly loved it and I am pretty sure I will come back at the end of my travels. Thank you for sharing your home!

It was a real pleasure to finish my trip in New Zealand here, unwinding in a calm environment. Lovely meeting you Catherine and thanks for our nice talk in the garden!

    Renée2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Not 15 minutes out of the city centre but the Tin Kingfisher feels akin to Narnia. An absolutely surreal experience staying in the Valley. Thank you to Catherine for opening up her doors and giving the discerning traveller a picture perfect place to rest their heads.

    Our Lyttel Whare (house) is a brand new, architecturally designed tiny home, thoughtfully located and decorated to maximise stunning harbour and hill views and to reflect our funky Lyttelton vibe. With access to a range of local walks, markets, eateries and activities, a break away will leave you feeling enriched and indulged with great memories to take with you. We aim to provide as much information and comfort as you need to have a great experience.
    The Whare is fully self-contained with independent access down a flight of pebbled steps (those with limited mobility may find the path difficult). It includes brand new appliances and is well positioned to make the most of the sun and expansive views that a west-side Lyttelton property has to offer.
    You will enjoy an orchard setting, morning bird-song and the hum of a working port will lull you to sleep. We are located on a private right-of-way with parking just above where you will be staying.
  • Great view and everything you need in a stylish tiny house!

    Edie2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

    Albert2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome little space with everything you need. Amazing view out over Lyttleton harbour, and close enough to walk down and have a drink. Comfy bed and stylish space with a handy wee kitchen. We loved our stay.

    Josh2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved the place and location.

    Yelena2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • After staying in Christchurch a couple days we ventured here for a change of scenery. This spot is great if you don’t have much luggage and don’t mind stairs. We loved our stay. It is close to Lyttleton, but be aware that the restaurants in town closes early. (Before 9 p.m) The view of the wharf is lovely in the evening. The place is spotless and the bed and pillows were some of the best that we had while three weeks in New Zealand. The frig is a nice size and the kitchen is well equipped. Clearly Rachel and Brian have high standards, which we appreciate in BNB owners. A memorable place to stay for sure.

    Brad2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Rachel&Brians Apartment was very beautiful. The place is stylish and cosy and has a great view over the harbor - which you can even enjoy from the bed :) Check in was easy, everything was clean and communication with Rachel&Brian was quick and easy. Thanks for having us!!

    The Big House is located in a very picturesque bay with easy access to some of the best the South Island has to offer. The accommodation is very suitable for a family that want some space of their own but would also like some contact with their hosts. Tracey and Scott will make you feel very welcome in their home and will ensure you have a relaxing and enjoyable stay.
    Cass Bay is only 20 minutes from the Christchurch CBD and yet it feels like you are in a different part of the country with the steep volcanic mountains and the blue waters of Lyttelton Harbour. The Big House is positioned well to capture the views in all directions and is a quiet reflective space too with double glazing for warmth and quiet. Open the doors to the decks and you can be outside enjoying the view and garden.
    Cass Bay is a seaside community of about 300 people who enjoy a really good quality of life which we like to share. There are three beaches in Cass Bay which families like to visit on hot days. It is quiet in Winter but it rarely gets busy. It appears 20 minutes from the CBD is just too far away for many. We like that!
  • The perfect experience! Communication, accommodation, and views are fantastic. Host Land Tracey is like a family, kind and patient! Come back to Christchurch in the future and would like to live here!

  • Couldn‘t have a better start for our New Zealand journey. The beautiful house, it’s location and moreover the great hospitality of Tracey and Scott are outstanding. Beside bring invited for dinner and a boat Race, we got a lot of Information and advises for our further roadtrip.

  • We couldn’t have wished for a better introduction to New Zealand. Scott and Tracey were really hospitable and generous. They gave us lots of tips. The house is spacious and has a marvellous view.

    We're located on the ridge between Lyttelton and Corsair Bay on a large, private section.
  • Fantastic spot great host have already recommended this place to other people

    Nick2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay on Otaranui Farm was brilliant! Jozefa and her family were warm and friendly which made our stay even better. The property is breathtaking with spectacular views across to Quail Island, Governers Bay and Diamond Harbour. We took Jo up on her offer to show us around the farm, saw some cheeky/boisterous cows and got to pat some very friendly goats! If you can, take the opportunity to walk the tracks around the farm to get a view of the other side which looks straight over the Port and the town of Lyttelton. Bonus was their dog Nik who was always willing to greet us and show us around the property! We will definitely be back next time we head to NZ, thanks for a fantastic stay!

    Abbey2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • The best place we stayed at on our trip down the country! Jozefa’s family were so friendly & lovely, and the cabin/space was gorgeous. Very clean, everything we needed & gorgeous views. Thank you so much for having us! ❤️

    Henriette2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Jozefa's place was perfect in every way. The view is magical, stretching from Govenors Bay to Lyttelton Harbour and across to Diamond Harbour and Church Bay. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you'd need to self-cater. The location is an ideal base for either a vacation in Christchurch or Banks Peninsular. It's very close to the restaurants and cafes of Lyttleton (a nice stroll or a 5 minute drive), while only being a 15 minute drive from central Christchurch. You can easily reach Akaroa, Diamond Harbour and all of the other beautiful bays from Jozefa's place. Jozefa and her family are very friendly and welcoming, and are always on hand to help. I'd definitely stay here again if/when back in Christchurch!

    Morgan2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect spot. I want to move to Lyttleton now!

    Edward2019-12-30T00:00:00Z

    Nikhil2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely spot, cozy wee place that is presented really nicely, has everything you need and the views are stunning. Great location and the farm walk and visits from Nick the friendly dog were an added bonus. Thanks so much, we’ll be back soon!

    Hannah2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful spot, lovely accommodation, animals to feed and play with, farm tracks to walk on, cool and friendly Lyttelton just down the hill, with great food and shopping. Highly recommended.

  • We had an amazing stay at Marias home. As we live with other people 24/7 it was a really refreshing couple of weeks in our own private space. Thank you Maria and family for your kindness, thoughtfulness, and the little touches. We want to come back already. I think we shall. The selection of reading material was diverse and relative, access and privacy excellent. Bed super comfy, Gary thought so too, facilities modern, sparkling clean.

  • Airbnb gets you into lovely houses in great locations. This was one of them. Almost as high as the famous Christchurch gondola, close by (we nipped around for a go. TIP: the gondola and city tram tour $50 together is a great way to max a short stay. ) Lovely private room, with all you need for a short stay and a genial host. What’s not to love?

    Séamus2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • What a spectacular setting high on the hill. Chilled out space.

    Nigel2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Maria’s spare room is lovely! The house is located on a stunning mountain with gorgeous views. The room was really private and separate from the rest of the house with an en-suite bathroom and was really quite spacious! The bed was super comfy and large. Maria was a very thoughtful and kind host - greeted us on arrival, showed us around and was in touch regularly. She left out some breakfast essentials like toast and cornflakes and milk, which was super kind! Overall we really enjoyed our brief 2 night stay at Maria’s as a stop off on our month long kiwi road trip and would highly recommend!

    Sandra2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

    Our home is very clean and tidy, and approximately 2 years old. The guest bedroom attracts morning sunshine, whilst the living area is drenched in afternoon sunshine. We are within walking distance to Ara, Ntec and the city. The cities beaches, gondola and Lyttleton are 12 minutes by car. The Purple bus stops 5 minutes from home, and this allows easy access all over Christchurch.
    Our home is ideal for single travellers and students who value a quiet and restful home close to the heart of Christchurch. It is a modern townhouse that is warm and dry in winter and cool in summer. We take genuine pride in how we keep our home clean and welcoming to all our guests.
    Waltham is close to Christchurch City, an eclectic mixture of new homes and old. It is a quiet, green neighbourhood close to many of the lovely activities visitors love to do.
  • Clean, quiet house with hospitable guests.

    Courtney2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • I loved my stay at this place, I could not fault any aspect, it was superb (hospitality, cleanliness, location)! Linda was a lovely host, so accommodating to all my needs and so easy to have a chat with. It really was a home away from home - a real treat for someone arriving for their first time in NZ.

    Amy2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

    The house is 10 minutes from the beach, 10 minutes from central Christchurch, and has a lovely park right next door. Located at the end of a dead end road, you can expect peaceful sleep, and a relaxing space in our sunny back garden that includes a barbecue. There is a very clean, sweet, and well trained dog living here, but he's not allowed in the guest room. The house is brother and sister friendly as well :)
  • Thank you so much Adrianna for your (and Joker’s!) hospitality. Your place was perfect and we really enjoyed our stay in Christhurch.

    Alexa2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Adrianna's and Simon's house is very clean and tidy. Our bed was comfy and the room was beautifully furnished. The kitchen was well equipped and the bathroom was clean like the rest of the house. The hosts gave us a lot of room and we had a great time with their dog Joker. All in all we can recommend this place.

    Jan-Miklas2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Adrianna is a very genuine humble host. She was very helpful and patient. I would highly recommend her amazing comfortable place. Thanks Adrianna

The space is gorgeous, super relaxing and the bed is the most comfortable thing I've sunken into for a long while. The location is great and super easy to access all areas of Christchurch and it's surroundings. Absolute Winner.

    Your own private space (detached from the main house) with toilet, shower and covered cooking area, high on the hill. Stunning views, bell bird chorus, peaceful valley. Put your feet up and gaze across the water or go for an invigorating walk in the hills. Village 15 minutes walk.
    This place has got character and a special feel!!. After having walked up the sloping path (approx. 75 mtrs with steps here and there)you are rewarded by an amazing view of Lyttelton Harbour. Sit on your own deck and take it all in-sensory delights-view, sound of bell birds. 15 Minutes walk down to the main street of Lyttelton, and yet it feels like you are in the country. The kitchen has got all the amenities to cook a complete meal-2 pits (camping)gascooker, small fridge, oven, pots/pans, crockery, complementary coffee/tea, some spices. If you don`t feel like cooking your own meal, Lyttelton offers a host of restaurants, cafes and bars. And there is a Saturday morning market where you can get fresh produce and listen to some great local live music. The cabin/sleep out has a total of about 25 m2, (URL HIDDEN) space, semi-outdoor kitchen about 14m2. Kitchen is seperate but right next to the cabin/sleep out. This is a kitchen with a view!!. From your breakfast, lunch, dinner table enjoy the ever changing light over water, hills, sky.
    Almost at the end of the road, high on the hill near the head of a small valley with trees and houses dotted around.
  • what a stunning location and great value for money:)

    Silke2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • A unique stay in a great spot. The view is great to just sit and enjoy along with sounds of the birds. Driving the streets of Lyttelton also an experience.

    David2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean, refreshing, simple, comfortable bed, and a very beautiful dining space. When you get up in the morning, you can see the plants planted by the landlord. It is very happy! All of Love!

    Ying-Fan2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely small flat with a nice view which is immediately outside the main house. It was nice that we had the whole space to ourselves as Joke wasn’t in, but it might feel overlooked with the main house occupied. Otherwise everything was lovely and the gas cooking facilities worked well with lovely hot water. Would recommend!

    Tidy little studio unit with a private parking spot just outside, and a private entrance and garden. Situated in Lyttelton West overlooking the harbour. Walking distance from open space along the waterfront or up into the Port Hills. Close to the buzzing town of Lyttelton well known for its Saturday market, unique shops and high quality restaurants. Dogs on prior approval only. Please note the hoob/stove top is not operational - no cooking facilities. We do have coffee, tea, & milk.
    With prior arrangement we do accept very well behaved dogs, but please note we do not have a fully fenced garden and the dog may not be left alone in the room while you are out.
    Open space is readily accessible from our place if you done mind steep hills! The beach is 3 minutes drive away, and Akaroa Peninsula about and hour away - great for a day trip. We have a Kayak available for use on request so you can explore via the water. Alternatively you can walk down to the the port and catch the ferry to explore Quail Island or Diamond Harbour.
  • Cozy but if someone upstairs there’ll be very minor noise but still wonderful experience.

    Tucked in at the base of the Port Hills, Tussock Hill Farm is situated on 35 acres of rolling pasture offering a superb rural escape while only 10 minutes drive from central Christchurch. The Tiny Tussock is nestled on the hill in the beautiful Avoca Valley. Located down a long drive, following the Avoca stream and native bush, this unique space provides privacy and tranquility. With cows and sheep roaming the paddocks, feel free to explore all that the farm has to offer.
    The Tiny Tussock is a well equipped and completely self-contained guesthouse which is off the grid and run by solar power. Enjoy the rustic deck and bbq area as well as a late night soak in the outdoor bath, under the stars. No oven available however, we have a gas cooktop, toaster, jug and BBQ. No WiFi.
    Perfectly located, the Tiny Tussock is close to many local amenities, cafes and eateries of Ferrymead, Sumner Village and Lyttelton. The Tannery is also within minutes, offering boutique shopping, restaurants and deluxe cinema. There are numerous outdoor activities within close proximity. We have many great walkways along the Port Hills, including the well known Rapaki track- which follows down the ridge and connects to the top of Tussock Hill Farm. The Port Hills are also renowned for their vast selection of mountain bike tracks, the adventure park being the ultimate playground.

A must-do experience with spectacular views of the cityscape, Canterbury plains and the high peaks of the Southern Alps.
  • A great wee spot - you feel as though you’re in the middle of the country yet only 20 minutes from city.

    Maria2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • By far the best Airbnb we have stayed in. The tiny house is modern, clean and very comfortable. It is in a beautiful location on a farm but still very close to Christchurch central. Kate is a brilliant host & we will definitely stay again next time we are in Christchurch

    Dylan2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Kates place was clean, stylish and easy to find 👌🏼 We relaxed outside on the patio with wine and cheese looking over the farm and Christchurch Hills - perfect way to end our trip☀️ if your looking for accommodation I would highly recommend staying here - for travellers without a car there is a bus only 10 minutes walking from the gate so super easy to get to and from the farm. Also, if you have time definitely consider relaxing in the bathtub with a coffee or wine - perfect!

    Allison2020-03-03T00:00:00Z

    A wonderful, relaxing hideaway that is only 10mins drive into the city and 20mins from the airport. You can dive into the pool or relax in the spa taking in the beautiful views of the city and the Alps beyond. The studio has a small kitchen with a microwave and portable stove top but if you would like to eat out there are wonderful restaurants and bars only 2mins drive away. Fast wifi and a TV with Netflix and Sky Tv will make sure you are never bored.
    Although we are only 10mins from the city we are completely away from all the hustle and bustle. You can hear native birds in the forest next door and watch the ever changing views of the mountains
    There are many beautiful walks near our house and the adventure park with world class mountain biking and zip line is a few minutes drive away.

  • Top of our list - this airbnb is excellent value for money! A lovely spacious apartment, just as described. The sloping floor is unusual, but doesn't cause any problems. Good info about the area is provided in the apartment. Easy to reach with the number 17 bus. The drive is very steep! however there is plenty of space to park on the road.

    Chris2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed 3 nights. The communication was great and Ailsa very helpful. Would stay at her place again, even though with public transport it's a bit pricey (however there's a bus going directly into the city centre)

    Malena2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

  • We stayed for 4 nights at Tamsin's place in Sumner and absolutely loved it! It's a great set-up in a really beautiful location. There were so many nice touches around the place and we loved meeting Beans the dog! Sumner itself is a gorgeous little town with lots to see and do nearby. I'm sure we'll be back. Thanks Tamsin (and Jenny) for being great hosts and for all your tips too!

    Wendy2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great place to stay. The location is awesome, just a couple of blocks from the ocean. We stayed one night and used the bbq and slept. It had everything we needed. Beans the dog was an added bonus for us as well, very friendly. Overall a great place!

    Oliver2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic wee spot with thoughtful touches so close to the beach. Beans the vizsla is a delight!

    Laura2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Tamsin's space is exactly as described. I highly recommend the stay for anyone heading to the Sumner area. Location doesn't get much better, my partner and I enjoyed the quick walk to the beach and on to the restaurants and shops. Top notch bed and bedding, wonderful hot shower and thoughtful additions when it came to soaps, lotions, etc. Beans the Visla is an absolute gem and it made my day to have a playful pup around.

    Located very close to the Eastgate Shopping Mall, and a short walk to the #80, Yellow Line and Orbiter bus stops.

This property is only a 10 minute drive, bus or 4.4km Uber from the exciting and regenerating city centre, beaches and shops.
    My house has 2 bedrooms, one of which is the one offered. It has a Queen size bed, bedding, side dressers, lamps, storage and heating. The bathroom and toilet are shared with myself. The lounge has a heat pump, eco fire and opens out onto a sunny courtyard area with a covered pergola area.

  • We had a lovely stay at Jo’s place! Jo is a great host, she is very nice and helpful and the dogs are so friendly! The place was clean and tidy, and we really enjoyed hanging out with Jo and the dogs. The only downside is the location, it was quite far from the center if you don’t have a car.

    Mathilda2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful week at Jo’s. It was in a great location, with a bus stop just a 5 minute walk to catch buses around the city. Jo was incredibly friendly and we really enjoyed spending the evenings with her and the dogs! The bed was very comfy and the house had everything we needed! We would highly recommend staying here.

  • Heather and Trevor warmly welcomed us into their home. The neighborhood is really great, besides, you can admire a fabulous sunset from their living room on the mountains. We felt at home during our stay. The house is very clean and neat. The very comfortable room. And what about the breakfast .. the best of our stay in NZ. Finally, again a big thank you to Heather who struggled to find us a hospital center on Christchurch for our medical certificate. We are very grateful to him.

    Laura2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very good place to stay. Home away home, hosts are very friendly and suggested us the local tips. Good start of the day with good breakfast. I strongly recommend this place to stay while in Christchurch.

    Anil2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Heather was the best host I've ever met. We arrived there too late, but she welcomed us. Her house and our room were so cozy and beautiful! I've never seen that kind of high quality room in Airbnb. I felt very comfortable like my home. Heather's breakfast was nice too. I enjoyed conversations with her. If I would visit Christchurch again, of course I will stay in her house. I highly recommend Heather's everything.

    Jung Ah2020-02-22T00:00:00Z

    Miranda2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • The second time I stayed, the host was just as warm and welcoming. The room I stayed in was the garden outside the window, very quiet; I enjoyed eating outdoors with small tables and chairs and enjoying the warm sunshine before sunset; it is only about 20 minutes away from the city by car , It is highly recommended for self-driving tourists to book, you can enjoy New Zealand-style leisurely life.

The apartment is very spacious and was also absolutely clean. We really enjoyed the breakfast in the nearby Cafe 'Harbor House' with a view of the sea and we can only recommend it like Cathy's apartment.

After road tripping for three weeks in a van could not have asked for a better place to spend a few nights before flying to Auckland. 25 minute Uber to the airport was nice also. Thank you again

  • Thea's guest suite is private, comfortable, absolutely sparkling clean, with very nice interior space for the rainy days (sitting room with comfy couch, chair) and exterior deck with chairs and table for lovely mornings or evenings. I would stay at Thea's for a day, a week, a month, it's just that perfect. Oh, and let's not forget how easy is to get anywhere in the area from Birdwood. Thank you, Thea, for the extra touches and warm welcome!

  • The room is situated at the ground floor with its own shower and toilet. It enjoys a picturesque garden view across a little river. The room is quiet and cozy, and bed comfortable. Next door there are local shops for coffee and takeaway food. I enjoyed jogging along the well-maintained parks and bushes nearby along the river, a 5-km return trip. It is also a short drive to the Adventure Park and decent bush walks such as Westmorland East Valley Reserve and Halswell Quarry Park. Melva is nice and hospitable - enjoyed the chats with her over the breakfasts. It is a great place to stay for a little price - best value I’ve ever found. Will definitely come back and I strongly recommend it!

The lounge and kitchen is available and are open plan, warm and sunny. These area open to an upstairs balcony for more views of the harbour. The laundry is available in your private area.
    Lyttelton, the Seattle of the South - will uphold it's promise ofquirky, yet delicious cafes, like Lyttelton Coffee Co-op and the Shroom Room. By night, there's some fantastic bars with cocktails at Civil and Naval, a brewery stop at Eruption Brewing, or possibly a live show at Wunderbar and a mingle with the locals. You'll find that you won't need to leave the Port with bush walks around the bays that will show you a view to make your friends jealous, and not to forget some of the best bays to swim, sunbathe, picnic and relax. Lyttelton is Christchurch's secret sweet spot, a hidden treasure of history and artistic culture.
  • Abby and Aaron are wonderful hosts! They made sure that we had all the amenities we needed, and gave really great recommendations for food and trips out in the South. I can’t express how grateful I am for them! I don’t think my time in Lyttelton would be as great if it weren’t for these two, and little Sunday of course! Thank you for the great hospitality and kindness! ❤️

  • We had a great stay at Abby's place in Lyttelton. Perfect for ending our trip in New Zealand. The location is perfect and Lyttelton and the surrounding bays such a nice area. The recommendations of the hosts were very useful!

    Philipp2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Abby and Aaron were lovely hosts and gave us some great local tips. The house has a beautiful garden and the room and bathroom was very clean and comfortable. I’d love to stay again.

  • The best Airbnb we’ve ever stayed! Private and super clean. 11 out of 10 would recommend!

    Rex2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Kat2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice and comfy place. Only stayed there for one night, but wished to stay longer if I would have had more time. Abby and her husband are very welcoming and make your stay there like home.

    Heleri2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Abby and her husband's B&B is very nice and quiet. The view of Liddelton Harbor from the owners' living room is beautiful. The bed is big and cozy. Price performance ratio is very good. We can fully recommend the B&B

    Klaus2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely recommend Abby's Place, for anyone looking for a comfortable and home-sensed place. Price exceeded affordability as well.

These two four-legged friends are adorable, well educated :) I highly recommend this accommodation! Thank you again for your hospitality.

    Eva2020-02-14T00:00:00Z

  • Spacious and comfortable room with lovely view. Very friendly dogs were an added bonus. Great location for exploring the Christchurch surrounds without feeling as though you are in the city. Many thanks Karen.

    Kate2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely hosts and room with a beautiful view of the bay. Shared bathroom was attached to the bedroom with a door so it felt pretty private. They have dogs and cats - I'm allergic to cats but love dogs and Karen was very good about keeping the cats away and allowing the dogs to hang out with us. Daisy the puppy was adorable and Harry was a friendly old fella. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

    Vivian2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • This charming home offers spectacular views that will leave you in awe at all hours of the day. The room itself is cozy and comfortable. Karen and her husband are incredibly kind and welcoming and are knowledgeable about spots to check out nearby.

  • Fantastic hosting from a great couple. Wayne and Elliott, thank you for being so welcoming, accommodating and lovely throughout our stay. It really was a pleasure getting to know you both! The house is really close to the city but far enough away that you don’t get disturbed by the hustle and bustle and with shops nearby. Both Elliott and Wayne went above and beyond and I’d recommend their place to anyone. We feel a past review was quite unfair, please remember you’re a guest in someone’s house not a guest in a hotel. These guys are great, so don’t be put off! :)

  • Close to town for a good price. Wayne is willing to help you with anything you ask.

    Klárka2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here a few nights after flying into Christchurch, before a NZ road trip, it’s a good location in the city, we walked everywhere during our stay. It’s a nice room, and Wayne was great! If you’re flying in, and don’t want to take the bus, I’d recommend Wayne’s airport pickup. It’s cheaper than you’d pay for an Uber or taxi.

    brian2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed one night at Wayne's place. It was very good. Wayne is very receptive and the explanations are clear. Attention marks in the room, tea coffee water, ... Contrary to some comments we were not cold. The accommodation is about 30 minutes from the city center. All around there are fast foods, pubs, bakery, .... We thank and recommend !!!

    Audrey2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Superb treasure masters and treasure landlords, small gardens more exquisite than the botanical gardens. The landlord and his warm male roommates who are so nice and poor, Boob and Hammer are also super cute fluffy super decompression. There are lovely laying quails, and the whole house is clean and tidy. Compared to the attractions of Christchurch, this famous place can play all day. I really can't understand those who give bad reviews! Would stay here again if given the opportunity!

    Tao2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Wayne and Elliott were great hosts - made us feel at home and were easy to communicate and have a chat with. Also it was great that we could arrange airport pick up/drop off with them (we had an early flight and it was amazing we didn't have to worry about ordering an uber). House/room was value for money. Good location with supermarket/laundromat/quick bites to eat nearby. All in all a great experience.

  • I cannot day enough good things about my stay with Ollie and her roommate, Dale. Ollie’s home is tranquil, charming, and its tenants are friendly while still giving their AirBNB guests all the space they like. Just wonderful. Ollie went above to make sure I had the perfect stay, was always immediately available for all questions, and was extremely accommodating. Her home, situated in a quiet and lovely residential neighborhood, is perfectly situated to explore the south side of Christchurch, with easy access to the breathtaking Banks Peninsula and the delightful city of Akaroa - be sure to take Ecoseaker’s swim with the dolphins tour there, it was the highlight of my entire three-month trip! - as well as the quaint, charming beach/Oceanside towns near Christchurch (Lyttleton, for example, has turquoise waters and charm for days). The next time I visit Christchurch, I won’t stay anywhere else. Bookmark this place for all your future visits!
