The Space

Approx 4.5 x 4.5 m ( 20' x 20') and up stairs behind our garage, it has its own toilet/ shower, a queen size bed, cable and wifi internet , a small sofa, desk, and an outside deck to relax on.
Situated on a half acre ( 2000 sq metres) rear tree-lined property , overlooking a school, this is a great wee hideaway. There is also a sink unit in the room where tea/coffe can be made, a small fridge, a small microwave, toaster and jug, but no major cooking facilites. Off street parking is available. It is a short walk to two main bus routes ( 15 min max). There is a direct bus from the airport to a stop 15 minutes walk away ( just under 1 km) and there are also airport-to- door shuttles or taxis. There is also a direct bus to the train station 5 minutes walk away ( Note: this is for intercity trains as there is no Christchurch metro train system). Travel to the airport is 15 min by car and 10 min to the train station.
The Neighbourhood is safe - and it is within easy walking distance of a large supermarket, a variety of shops and a good range of eat-in /takeaway restaurants.( asian, steakhouse, greek- more than a dozen to select from)
We provide a cereal breakfast and may be able to provide other meals by negotiation.
We have a small jack-russell/foxy dog who owns the place -once introduced he is friendly, but has to announce all arrivals and departures unless he's sleeping in the sun
