Red Door Cottage - A Peaceful City Haven

 Absolutely perfect. Very quiet, spacious and comfortable. So well stocked with provisions. A perfect place to settle in to NZ; an easy walk into Christchurch and easy to find your way around as you get used to the hire car. 

41 On Howden is a lovely 3 bedroom holiday home

 Full equipped house and well located to visit the area. Plenty of room for 6 of us and beds very comfy. We enjoyed the BBQ !! Nice stay, thank you. 

Quiet, relaxing, modern home away from home

 Well situated and easily accessed from main arterial routes. Comfortable, without being luxurious 

45 Alpine Avenue - Hanmer Holiday Homes

 Lovely large roomy house with great views. Big down full though is the driveway. The house is situated down a hill and the driveway does a sharp right into the property half way down the hill. I found it very hard to do the sharp turn out of the driveway & then immediately up the hill. Nice deck, bbq etc. The living area was able to be closed off from the bedrooms which would be great for families. Dishwasher wasn't working, no heat pump/air con but a lovely fire :) 

Tranquil rural location with mountain views

 Peaceful location. The cottage has everything needed for a comfortable self-catering stay. 

Spacious, comfortable holiday home by the lakes.

 Great location in Otematata, well set out and very clean and warm. Everything that we needed was there and well fenced for our little dog. Highly recommend.
