We arrived in Sumner beach at Christchurch looking for accommodation, after having to depart other accommodation south of Christchurch which did not live up to expectations. To be honest, we had low expectations after a disappointing day. This place and location proved to be the oasis in the desert. We were shown to a very large, immaculate and extraordinarily well...

Centrally located in Sumner with a few minutes walk to the beach, shops and supermarket. Checkin was easy and nothing was too much trouble with Mel converting a...

The retreat has been built by the owners with 3 apartments, 1 studio and the owners own apartment, all accessed by lift. Added to this is a small pool and...

We stayed here last night and it was lovely. The small touches like the wine and biscuits and late check out we asked for we're really appreciated. The location was perfect, right in the middle of everything and a stones throw to the beach. We loved the personal feel of the place and although the weather was rubbish I can...

We stayed in a studio apartment which had all the amenities you could want. The owners, Chris and Roydon, were amazing hosts to this beautiful facility. We had use of a pool and hot tub overlooking a phenomenal view over the ocean. Only 4 apartments so very quiet and secure. Underground parking, security system to enter building. Had use of...
