Twin Room 5 min from Airport

House - Private room · Withells Road, Christchurch, Canterbury 8042, New Zealand

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.

The Space

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!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The house was great, close to the airport, and had very comfy beds! Leon was a great host and provided us with complimentary breakfast. I would definitely recommend.

    March 2014
  • The room was just as advertised-- probably about 4 minutes from the airport and very clean and pleasant! Lovely bread in the morning. I was very comfortable here! Leon was great and helped me book a taxi the next morning. I would highly recommend this room.

    March 2014
  • I would certainly recommend Leon's accommodation in Christchurch. Leon was very accommodating in providing clear communication with all information, and didn't have a problem with me coming in late and departing early. Make sure you ask for Leon's homemade bread - it was delicious.

    February 2014
  • I forgot how small a single bed is but good all round experience.

    February 2014
  • Although he was away, when we arrived, Leon had kept us informed about access and other guests, whom we enjoyed meeting. Leon made us feel very welcome and at home. He gave us interesting background on Christchurch and New Zealand. Bedroom and bathroom were clean and comfortable. Access to the airport was very convenient.

    February 2014
  • Nice and close to the airport, easy to get there on a bus. Comfy beds and excellent wifi was a plus! Leon is lovely.

    February 2014
  • Leon's home was only a few minutes from the airport as advised. We were given very clear instructions as to how to access our room as we arrived near midnight, and did not want to disturb anyone. The accommodation was very clean and neat and Leon was very helpful providing assistance with any queries we had.
    We would certainly recommend this B&B.

    February 2014
  • Great landing spot from a long flight. Leon provided everything we needed.

    February 2014
  • Great stay. Leon was very accommodating and at very short notice. Very comfortable. Thank you.

    January 2014
  • Leon's house was very comfortable. It was exactly as advertised- an easy place next to the airport to crash for the night. He was very hospitable and helpful with the bus schedule. He answered email questions quickly and made our stay very easy!
