The Space:

We provide all the services you would expect in a downtown rental, on week-by-week basis. Ideal for visitors or professionals seeking short -term comfortable accommodation at a more reasonable price than a hotel. Not suitable for toddlers, as there are stairs in the house. It can sleep more, but the hot water is limited, so we consider requests for occasional stays of up to 6 people.

Guest Access:

The whole house is rented as one unit. An offstreet carpark is a rarety in this town, available with the rental. Free wifi internet available.

Interaction with Guests:

We will get you settled in, after which it is self-drive. Your hosts live next door, so we're on hand to help with needs as they arise.

The Neighbourhood:

The walks in the Otari-Wilton's Bush reserve are spectacular - either 20 mins around the botanical collections or 2h along the skyline walkway.

Getting Around:

We're right on the route of bus #14 into town (10-15 mins), and 100m from the route of bus # 13/22/23 to university (15 mins). Close enough to walk to downtown in 45 mins, or a short drive.

  • it was a delightful place

    it was a delightful place. The area was peaceful and picturesque. The tree house design was wonderful and the views and ambience of the surrounds were wonderful. We particularly enjoyed the wilderness walk nearby that had a history linked to the Cottage and Susan's family. The main bed was extremely comfortable and the kitchen facilities with espresso coffee maker completed the package. Great value for money and we would certainly stay there again. A must stay in our opinion!
