The Space

Come and stay with me ! I have travelled a lot to Sweden, my daughter lives there, France, Italy, Spain, England and would love to meet and greet travellers from all over.
My apartment has 2 bedrooms, separate toilet, big shower/bathroom, lounge/dining/kitchen and another small lounge. My apartment opens out to my garden in two areas.

I live in a great city apartment very close to:

Hagley Park : 5 minute walk
Shopping in our new container built mall in the city 6 - 8 minute walk

Shuttle to and from the airport to my door approx $30.
Canterbury Museum: Naked Bus stop 10 mins walk.
Bealy Ave: Atomic Shuttle, Intercity, tour buses, short walk.
The city bus stops right outside my apartment but the city is with in walking distance.

CAFES : 5 minute walk
Restaurants Indian 2 minute walk, Thai choice of three 5-10 minute walk, Strawberry Fare (fine dining) 10 mins walk.
Supermarket : With in 7 mins walk

Just to clarify I don't run a bed and breakfast service however bread, milk, cereal, spreads, coffee, tea, yoghurt, are provided for you to make your own at your leisure.
For personal reasons I don't have electric blankets on the beds. My apartment is warm, sunny, double glazed and has suitable heating.

My apartment is in a safe, secure complex outdoor living, garden on the ground floor just in case you were worried ! I have internet, meals can be shared or what ever you need I work a lot from home but I wont invade your privacy! oh I don't have animals, we aren't allowed them !
My apartment is perfect for a single person travelling, safe, secure, friendly and comfortable!
Look forward to seeing you soon!!

  • Rhonda is a perfect greeter. She told us all what is important to see in Christchurch and around. The house is clean and well situated. I recommend this b&b !

  • Rhonda and Colin were great. I arrived early and they were flexible. Rhonda even gave me a lift to the train the next day. I didn't get much of a chance to chat with either, but I enjoyed the brief time that I did.

    I took the city bus from the airport and would do it again, so long as I only have a small bag. The location was easy to get to and a convenient place to visit the CBD. Sadly, I was recovering from a food bug and stayed in most of the day, that said, I felt very welcome and comfortable, even in my weakened state.

    The bed was very soft and the room clean. The shower is huge.

    In all, a good place to stay.

  • Staying at Rhonda's was great. She was a very welcoming host and had all needs anticipated- warmed my room at night:) and provided breakfast- including fresh coffee- fantastic. The bed and bedding was lovely. Her flat is very well located and Rhonda was able to give accurate advice on how to get around the city.
    I highly recommend her place and would be grateful to stay there again if back in CHCH.

  • Rhonda's apartment was nice and very close to the city.
    Rhonda was helpful in suggesting places to go and we saw more of Christchurch because of Rhonda than we would have seen on our own.
    We were there in winter and the apartment was cold with minimal heat. All of our B & B's had electric blankets and it would have been nice to jump into a warm bed but there were no electric blankets
    Sharing a bath wasn't ideal but was tolerable.
    Rhonda didn't prepare breakfast but there was breakfast food available.
    We had fun in Christchurch and seeing the earthquake damage firsthand was pretty frightening.

  • Rhonda saved the day! After my carefully planned itinerary got messed up at the last minute, Rhonda so graciously welcomed me into her home. Staying with Rhonda and Colin is like staying over at your friend's house. I had a cozy room with super soft bed and warm blanket, plus space to get comfortable in the rest of the apartment. It was nice to sit with them a bit after a day of exploring - they were so friendly and fun to talk to. The airbnb community is designed for people like this. Thanks for a great visit!
    P.S. The location is also amazing - right by the central business district and literally around the corner from the bus stop that takes you to the rest of New Zealand.

  • Rhonda and Colin were lovely hosts! Rhonda brings a smile to your face no matter when or where she is just such a joyful character! I loved the dinner and Colins BBQ and I loved their company in the evening! The appartment is in walking distance to anything important and Rhonda prepared a fantastic map with important and interesting details about the area and her flat!
    I'd come back anytime! :)
