Comfortable family home.
Your choice of breakfast!
Enjoy hearing travellers tales.
Two friendly family cats.
Great views of estuary and sea.

You truly will be able to see for miles right over Pegasus Bay to Kaikoura on a clear day, and lovely views over the Estuary. The lights are spectacular at night.

There is a choice of Breakfasts for Guests. We offer fresh or stewed Fruit or berries, from our own gardens if seasonal, with a variety of Cereals and yoghurt. Then, bagels, toast, or breads to have with home-grown- and- made jams and jellies. Of course there is great coffee, tea, and fruit juice to enjoy with the food.

We enjoy meeting our Guests, and assure them of a warm welcome on arrival, and as much help as we can offer during their stay. We love to hear Travellers’ tales, and may be able to offer one or two of our own. We are very fortunate that airbnb sends only the BEST GUESTS to See for Miles. We have been delighted to get to know them all.

There are two family cats who make themselves fairly scarce when
visitors are here.

There are cafes and restaurants within walking distance, and a good uphill walk home to enjoy.

Buses leave for the City Centre from outside the property, every half-hour, and back of course.
We are high on the hill in a residential neighbourhood, with safe street parking outside.

  • Great place in a good location with a brilliant view! But the best about staying with Judith is the cup of tea and nice conversation with her :) I will definitely be back!

    Response from Judith:

    Thank you for the positive review, Julie, and the lovely recommendation of the Routeburn. May you continue to travel safely and enthusiastically. Judith

  • We stood at Judith´s B&B two times during our two month round trip through New Zealand; in the beginning and in the end of our trip. As we arrived from the airport, exhausted and tired, we found not only a very warm welcome and a pleasant room to sleep, but a lovely place to stay, rest, and enjoy.
    After touring through New Zealand in a campervan, we looked forward to going back to Judith´s B&B, not only because of the warm bed, the comfortable room and the prepared breakfast. Judith is an exceptional host and she really knows how to make a home. We had a great time at her´s, enjoying her warmth, kindness, humor, and flexibility.
    Our feedback: We look forward to visiting Judith again during a second trip to New Zealand!

  • Staying with Judith was an absolute dream. Incredibly comfortable bed, private bathroom, fantastic views and an excellent host.

    If you are planning a trip to Christchurch I would highly recommend you stay at "See for Miles".

  • Judith is an exemplary host. Her home is warm and inviting. We arrived in a torrential downpour, and Judith even had home made soup and muffins to welcome us. I highly recommend staying with her.

  • It was a pleasure to meet Judith and spend a night in her home - we were sorry we couldn't stay longer. Judith is a wonderful host who has an great get-up-and-go attitude; we enjoyed chatting to her and her friend who was staying at the time, Eleanor.

    Judith's home is beautiful, as is her garden. We felt very at home during our stay and Judith provided everything we needed. Delicious breakfast, the highlight being Judith's homemade jam!

    March 2014
  • Judith is a brilliant host! This was our first air b n b experience and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Breakfast is provided and the homemade jams are the best! The room was comfortable and clean and Judith's house is beautiful - you really can see for miles! I would hesitate to recommend a stay at Judith's to both family and friends.

  • Judith has a perfect house to stay at: wonderful bedroom, a picturesque view from her balcony on to the sea and the shared bathroom with the other airbnb guest was not a problem. Everything was very clean and the breakfast in the morning is yummy. Plus, Judith is a nice person to talk to and ask for recommendations.

  • Our stay with Judith was a wonderful welcome to New Zealand. Judith had given us excellent directions on how to reach her home by bus from the airport. We were pleasantly surprised with the bus system in Christchurch and used it to get around for the first day until we picked up our rental car the next day. The city location of Apex car rental is very close to Judith so was convenient for car pick up.
    Our room was clean and very comfortable. The house has an incredible view, especially in the early morning hours with city lights and water view. Judith's gardens are beautiful as well. Judith was warm and welcoming and helpful with all our questions. She had a nice breakfast set up for us to help ourselves in the morning at the time of our choice. Thank you, Judith for your kind hospitality.

  • This was a perfect place to arrive at after our long flight from the UK. We had a very warm welcome from Judith even though we arrived a day late due our error. The house was extremely comfortable particularly the bed! The views exactly matched the house name 'See for miles'. Judith has a beautiful garden which she took us round, and we also enjoyed some of its produce for breakfast. An added and unexpected bonus was the piano. There is lovely walking from the house though slightly curtailed as a result of the earthquake and also we enjoyed an afternoon on the beach at Cass Bay. An excellent introduction to New Zealand!
