About this listing
This is a room with two single beds, 5 mins by car, 10 by bus from airport, on bus route to central city. Shared facilities, and breakfast is included in the price. Late arrivals and early departures are fine, wifi password provided in room.
Two single beds are available when you book under this listing, or you can book for the double bed room, or all rooms, under my other listing.
Located on the undamaged west side of Christchurch, we are only a 5 minute drive from Christchurch Airport.
I have two bedrooms available, the other is a double bed room, to see it, click on the photo of me to the right, and scroll down to the end of the page. Price is the same regardless of which room you book.
This room consists of 2 single beds.
I am happy to host 1 to 4 guests at any one time. The room is available for up to 11 nights, as I have my kids every second weekend.
All rooms have a shared bathroom, however there is a separate toilet.
Not only are we located close to the Airport, but we are also conveniently located close to a range of public transport routes, including the bus to and from the airport, which runs from about 6am until 11pm, and stops about 50 metres from my house. If you have a car, there is free off road parking.
I have no problem with guests arriving late, the last flight into Christchurch arrives about 12.30 am (00.30am), and I am happy to have guests off that flight, who usually get here about 1.30am. Early departures are also fine, many guests leave at around 5am for a 6.30am flight. There is no strict check out time, so if you get in late (4am is my record so far) you are welcome to sleep in and move on when you are ready, subject to any arriving guests needs, which I will inform you of if relevant.
The price Includes a complementary breakfast daily, consisting of fresh bread and homemade spreads (unless you are on the 6.30am flight, the kitchen doesn't open till about 7am, but you can use the facilities any time.)
We are a perfect location to use a a base while you enjoy the region!

Interaction with Guests
I am around most of the time, and am happy to chat about planning your trip, or life in general.
A quiet, affluent area, with a shopping centre 800m away, with a very good bar and restaurant, and supermarket and pharmacy/drug store among others.
Buses to and from the airport and central city stop almost right at the door, and I have two bikes you are welcome to use.
No smoking on the property. I provide bed linen, and towels if required. Kitchen is fully available, as are contents of food flavourings store cupboard, (within reason.) I am happy to provide some transport on an agreed basis. I am usually here at night, and if there are any issues just let me know and I will do what I can to make your stay as pleasant and easy as possible.
A very comfortable and relaxing house with Lean a very accomodating host. The fresh bread and spreads for breakfast was a treat.
The place was very easy to find and within walking distances of a shopping centre for food and dining. A taxi from the airport was just under $20
A highly recommended host and one that I would go back to.
Really nice stay. Leon is a very nice person. I have no negative comment. Thumps up from me.
The room was as described and comfortable. Leon was very helpful, knowledgable and made us feel very welcome. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to others! Thanks a lot Leon :)
Basic accommodation that is conveniently located to the airport. Great for late night or early flights - Leon will accommodate your arrival/departure time. I didn't get to spend much time getting to know Leon as we had a late flight but everything was as described and expected.
I had a lovely stay - the place is in a convenient distance to the airport which was essential to me as I had to collect a car the day after my late night arrival. It's approx. 20-30 mins to walk. Leon made the late check in at 1:30 am really easy with providing excellent information how to access the house as well as leaving lights on for me and a welcoming sign. The room was nice and clean with towels provided. Leon is a very friendly person who also helps out with recommendations where to travel on the southern island. And not to forget he also prepares a nice breakfast with fresh bread or cereals which I very much enjoyed. All in all a good place to stay especially when arriving late and close proximity to the airport is desired.
Leon was a very friendly and welcoming host and his house was very homely, we had a great night sleep in the very comfy bed. The house is very clean and Leon did everything to make us feel welcome, his homemade bread and jam was delicious for breakfast! (Great location 10mins on bus from airport)
