    It was our first time in New Zealand. We stayed in the smaller cottage - quant, cosy and very clean. Our hosts were very welcoming and happy to assist with any of our needs. A good spot when visiting ChCh.

    We stayed in the two bedroom cottage which was perfect. Cute and cosy with a lovely fire to keep us toasty warm. Close to town and all the attractions of Christchurch. Owners are super friendly and helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended.
