Modern house with double glazing located in South New Brighton, 5min walk from the surf and a safe swimming beach. It also overlooks a riverside reserve.
Two-minute walk from a bus stop that takes you into the city (which is around a ten minute drive). Just over an hour to a popular skifield and a good base for exploring the South Island of NZ.
There is a large grocery store a five minute drive (or 20min walk), and many areas to explore. A small suburban mall is nearby, which includes restaurants, cafes and shops. There is the famous New Brighton Pier which extends into the sea for about 300m and lights up at night.
We have a guest bathroom that includes gas hot water shower and toilet. We live next to a peaceful reserve that has extensive walking tracks and makes for relaxing evening strolls with fantastic sunsets.
The house is relatively modern with extensive renovations approximately 5 years ago. Full insulation, a very quiet street and a proper bed mean you'll get a good nights sleep. Free on-street parking available.
There is a double bed in the main bedroom and a single bed for a third guest in the other bedroom (or if separate beds are needed - please let us know when you book, extra charge applies).
A clean and hygienic home is very important to us and we make every effort to make sure your accommodation is up to a high standard.
We also provide guests with our top ten things to do in Christchurch - we've lived here for over 20 years so we know a few places to go!
We look forward to welcoming you soon!

Interaction with Guests
You might not see much of us since we both have busy schedules but we love to chat if we get the chance!
Its a relaxed neighborhood with plenty of scenic areas to explore, a beach that goes for miles and is popular with joggers and walkers. Plenty of bird life too.
The public Metro buses run most days until midnight at approximately 20 minute intervals. There is a bus stop 2 min walk from our house.
We are relaxed and look forward to welcoming guests who take care of their surroundings. If you'd like to use the kitchen, laundry or phone please let us know.
I spent 5 nights with Jason and Crystal and it was the perfect choice for me. The house is lovely and very clean. It's location near the ocean was ideal. I did not have a car but found the local buses easily got me wherever I wanted to go. I very much appreciated being able to talk to Jason and Crystal about what has been happening in Christchurch since the quakes. Our paths did not cross all that much but that too worked well.
Jason was a wonderful host! Very friendly and helpful. Their home is beautiful, clean and very comfortable! Would absolutely recommend staying here!
We had a quick but pleasant overnight stay at Jason's place. We arrived later in the evening so did not see Jason until the following morning, but he was great at communicating and gave us clear instructions on how to get in and find the room. When we did meet in the morning, Jason was super welcoming and friendly. The room was very nice - comfortable and clean. The location is a peaceful, quiet neighborhood. It is helpful to have a car if staying here as it is a bit outside the Christchurch CBD (about a 10-15 min drive). Overall we enjoyed our time at Jason's and would highly recommend staying here!
Jason and Chrystal were really friendly and made us feel very welcome. The location was really nice, with just two minutes walk to the beach. Nice backyard with hammocks. They even provide us with a surf board and a glas of whiskey! Thumbs up!
We stayed for 2 days on short notice. Jason responded quickly and was an awesome host. He gave wonderful tips for stuff to do around Christchurch and helped us out with information for getting to the airport. Highly recommend! Thanks Jason!
