Double Bed Room 5 min from Airport

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

I have available a double bed room, 5 min by car or 10 min by bus from the airport. Also available is a twin single bed room, giving beds for 4 people, and if you are in need of beds for 6, I may be persuaded to give up my own bed for you.

The Space

Located on the undamaged west side of Christchurch, we are only a 5 minute drive from Christchurch Airport, or 10 minutes by bus. A taxi is $25 from the airport, $15 to the airport, a shuttle is $17 per person, and the bus is $8.50 directly to the airport, or $3.50 if you walk the last 300 metres out of or into the airport.

2 Bedrooms are available in a comfortable home. The first room consists of one Double Bed, with 2 single beds in the second. To book just the second room, click on my photo on the right, and go to the end of the page, and both my listings will appear on the left.

I am happy to host 1 to 4 guests at any one time, and if you need beds for 5 or 6, I may be able to accommodate you. The rooms are 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!

  • Leon has a very convenient place next to the airport and not a far drive in to town center. There's a park close by that's great for a run too!

    He made everything easy as far as communication and making me feel very welcome. Place was clean and tidy. Perfect spot for that early am flight!

    April 2014
  • Great space and neighborhood, easy to find, right on the bus line, easy access to airport. Leon was the most gracious host I've met yet through AirBnB. Highly recommend.

  • Leon's house is the perfect location for an early flight the next day. It's around 5 mins drive away to the airport or to town. The room is spacious and the bed is clean and comfortable. Leon is warm & understanding. I enjoyed the chat we had and got to know more about christchurch and also other ways to travel the South Island. I'm definitely coming back here if I were in christchurch again. He even made sure I was awake at 4.30am for my early flight. Thanks Leon.

    March 2014
  • We enjoyed it very much to be a guest in Leons house. He made us feel at home.
    The place is near to the airport and easy to find. It's a very good place to stay especially when you arrive in NZ at Christchurch airport as we did.
    Thank you, Leon.
