About This Listing
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.
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!
Inclusions and Amenities:
Family and Child Friendly

Interaction with Guests
I am around most of the time, and am happy to chat about planning your trip, or life in general. But be warned, one guest recently quit his job to become a travel writer full time after an evenings discussion with me.
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.
Leon was very accommodating to my late arrival time. Finding the house using the directions provided was easy. Around $18 taxi fare from the airport. The electric blanket on the bed was already turned on preparing me for the cold winters night ahead. Extremely friendly host and very clean room, i would definitely re-book this accommodation should it be available again when i decide to re-visit.
Leon welcomed me into his home after a long drive. The house was perfectly located for an early flight from Christchurch airport. I arrived late and left early but found the room perfect for my requirements. Leon was polite and friendly and I enjoyed the short time I spent with him.
Leon couldn't have done a better job describing his place. He is located very close (5 minutes) to the airport. I took the bus to his location and was able to find the house with ease. Leon is fatherly, kind, casual and inclusive. One of the things that made me choose to stay with him was the many reviews praising him. Not surprisingly, I was one of his longer stays. Since he is close to the airport, most people stay one night. I stayed 3 nights. When I arrived, Leon was not there but left explicit directions and I got in without any troubles. He even helped me arrange a taxi for my early morning flight out of Christchurch. If you are stopping over or looking to visit Christchurch, I highly recommend Leon. He's close to the airport, a mere $3.50AUD bus ride (covers two rides within a 2 hour period) into the city, and overall good company.
The house and room is very tidy and clean. The host, Leon is really nice!Because I didn't have enough time to catch my bus he drives me to my destination. I really like the delicious homemade bread and jams hahaha! IThank you Leon! Have a nice day!
Leon was very friendly and welcoming. He constantly messaged me to ensure that I knew my way to his apartment. His house was extremely near the airport, and it was quipped with everything you need to cook and prepare for breakfast. Sauces, seasoning, cereals, milk, you name it, you have it. Thanks for having us there Leon!
