Modern, sunny Town House in Christchurch.

A separate bedroom (3800 x 2150) with Queen size bed with shared guest bathroom. Continental Breakfast (website hidden) available in lounge. WiFi available on request.

Tabby cat in residence, no trouble to guests.

8kms from Christchurch International Airport, and 10kms to the centre of town. (What Centre?) Well, there is the Restart Mall and a few buildings left and the river Avon! A few more buildings to come down then the rebuild for the city will really get started. There are a few new buildings and of course many open spaces, which have been filled by what some locals are calling 'Gap fillers'. At least the Town Hall is staying to be repaired at a great cost to many! The town is forever changing daily.

The Cardboard Cathedral is replacing the Original Christchurch Cathedral which was 'munted' in the 2011 EQ. in the City Centre. Interesting!

2 Blocks from Northlands Shopping Mall, which includes 2 supermarkets and many more shops, and boutiques.

On main bus routes to the airport, into the city and the Obitor bus which goes around the main shopping centres in Christchurch. Near the Main North Road for trips north of Christchurch.
The No 125 bus from airport, (it's about a 10 minute walk to the Bus stop), across from the Antarctic Centre. Then ask the bus driver to drop you off by the Sanitarium Factory on Harewood Road. From there walk straight across the traffic lights, a few metres to my house. The fare is about $4.00, and the buses run every 15 minutes during the day then 30minutes in the evenings and the weekends. Start about 6am until 11.30pm Mon - Fri
The Shuttle bus is about $20.00 from airport to my place.
A taxi is $30 - $40.00 depending on no passengers & time of day.

24hrs Gym across the road and a Taxi rank 1 minute away.
There are many 'Take Aways' and restaurants within 5 mins walk away, Thai. Chinese, Subway, Kebarbs House, and The Lone Star Restaurant.

Would best suit single women travelling by themselves or couples.
Takes up to 4 people travelling together into 2 bedrooms.

Shared lounge.

I will welcome you on arrival and we be around some days as I work from home. Other days I go out to work, but Lucy (Cat) is always around and loves company.

Safe and friendly neighborhood. Street parking outside my place can be difficult during the working week, as it near the Papanui Business area. Otherwise evenings and weekends are very quiet.

There is parking outside my property and is safe at night.
There is a public transport system into the centre of Christchurch (The Donut- as it is now called) as it is empty inside and all happening around the outskirts. The No 125 bus goes every 15 minutes and leaves from a block away to go the airport. This takes about 15 -20 minutes depending on traffic and costs about $3.50!

Lucy-Lou my cat is always around, but is no trouble to guests.

The Neighborhood

The neighbourhood is safe and quiet, especially in the evening and weekends, though there is a 24hr Gym across the road, which is good security, so I'm told.
About 2 blocks from Northlands Shopping Mall, which has 2 large supermarkets. Countdown and Pak 'N Save. Countdown is open till 11pm every night.

Getting Around

Just around the corner onto Papanui Rd, is a Bus stop, which many buses stop at going into town, via Merivale. Also by Northlands Shopping Mall buses leave to go to the airport and another does a circuit around all the shopping Malls.
