Mountain biker, nurse, traveler. I believe in working hard, but a good work/life balance. Originally from California, currently a Kiwi, and not sure where next.
The place was very clean and tidy, and on a nice quiet street. Parking is on the street, but this was not a problem as it is not busy and there is plenty of space to park. Kristen and Scott were very welcoming and easy to talk to, and provided lots of good suggestions for things to do/see in the area. While a bit out of the city centre, the drive to the city was very quick and easy.
Kristen and Scott were kind to us during our stay. We had a room to ourselves with a comfortable bed. The bathroom and kitchen were shared with them.
We had a great time staying with Kristen and her husband. Although we screwed up the day of our stay (off by a day) Kristen was able to accommodate us happily. They also made us feel like one their friends as opposed to just guests. We would definitely recommend staying here!
Close to the city center with a car, clean room, guest helpfull with good advice for restaurants and café!
The room was exactly as it was in photos and in the description. Comfy bed, warm house, perfect location for everything and the neighbourhood felt incredibly safe. It was a perfect start to our adventures in New Zealand and Kristin and Scott are the reason we chose to stay in Christchurch longer than expected. They are both legends, who wear their heart on their sleeves. Kristin and Scott are incredibly welcoming and easy going that we feel like we have known them for years, rather than only a week.
Kristens place was really nice and clean. Unfortunately we only saw us at one time because she had to work until late. But it seemed like she's a really nice host.
Kristen was awesome! They made us feel so at home and welcomed in their house. After traveling for awhile it was so nice to have a cozy bed to sleep in. Room was nice and house was very clean
Lovely hosts and a lovely house. Super down to earth and approachable couple who had us feeling at home immediately.
As fellow cyclists, their expert knowledge on the local rides had us out exploring the best that Christchurch had to offer.
Couldn't recommend highly enough.
I really enjoyed my stay with Kristen and Scott--the room was clean and comfortable, and I ended up extending my stay. They live a short walk to shops and restaurants, and a really easy bus ride to the city center if you don't come with a vehicle. They also gave me and my travel partner many suggestions for NZ activities, and let us look through their guidebooks. Would definitely recommend staying here if you are in CHCH :)
Kristen and her party were excellent guests who left the condo in great condition. I highly recommend them.
All great - left Oceanside very tidy = highly recommend as guests
Great guests! Thank you :)
It was a privilege to have Kristen and her husband stay with us. Nice people & 100% recommended.
Kristen and Scott were super guests. Polite, tidy and a pleasure to host, I'd be happy to have them back anytime.
Kristen and her group were fantastic guests.
I recommend them as Airbnb guests. Would be happy to host them again.
Kristen and her group stayed 4 nights for the mountain biking experience. They were a very dedicated group and wore themselves out each day so they were very quiet. They were clean and tidy, good communication, easy transaction. I recommend them as quality guests.
Kristen and her girlfriend Kim spent a night at Dunstan Downs. They were both enjoying their travels around the South Island. The pet lambs were the high light of their stay. I enjoyed their company, good conversation whilst they enjoyed a hearty breakfast.
Great guests,tidy ,considerate.
