Totally separate from house with own bathroom and entrance
Approx 4.5 x 4.5 m ( 20' x 20') and up stairs behind our garage, it has its own toilet/ shower, and two single beds, a cable internet , couch, desk and TV
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, 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)
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
We live and work on the property and while we enjoy relating we know many guests value their privacy and independence. We often go walking on the nearby hills overlooking the city and if you are around you are very welcome to come along.
Nice Place again. I stayed there twice.
Everything was really good!
Great accomodation and great host.I'd reccomend it to anybody are looking for a private and silent couple of days in chch.

Very comfortable , Nice service and friendly host i've ever met. Wi-fi and internet line and Tv are amazing. Nice free breakfast and fruit.
And a cute dog. Wanna go there again.
The apartment is seperate from the house of Lawrence. So I had always my private atmosphere. The hosts are very kindly and helpfully. they take me with them for a walk in the hills near Christchurch...for me alone I would not find this ways. Thank you!
Lawrence and Jeanette are warm and friendly hosts. A great place to stay which is conveniently located. Thank you :)
Check in was easy and well organized. Lawrence helped us with information about local transport from the rail station, where we arrived and from where we would leave the next morning. Bedroom and bathroom were clean and comfortable. Although access was by some stairs, it is separate from the house, which was useful for our late arrival and early start. Thank you for the milk and fresh, hot Gingerbread biscuits!
