  • Private and restful garden: a verdant oasis.
  • Not suitable for children under 5 years of age

From the moment you step into this property, you'll be amazed at how you have left the city behind to find an oasis of calm and safety.

Living areas look out to a lovely cottage garden, dappled sunlight falling on grass and brick pathways beyond the Oamaru stone -enclosed courtyard.

This property is perfectly located for a stay in Christchurch, whether you are just passing through on holiday or coming for that special event: concert at the Arena, sports fixtures at the cricket and rugby stadia, Arts Festivals or NZ Cup Week.

The Merivale location means you're only minutes away from that food and fashion precinct; and if you've come to town to see the kids during the school term you are right on the doorstep for all the private schools.

Maybe you need some accommodation whilst you seek something more permanent as you relocate to the city? This property gives you everything you need as you find your feet: broadband connectivity, Smart TV (e.g. Netflix), and landline.

Hagley Park is one of the great assets of the city: join the locals and appreciate the perfect, safe jogging circuits, have a round at the Hagley Golf Club, or get some tennis in either at the courts in North Hagley or the Hagley Tennis Club itself.

Although I prefer 2 day bookings, I will take single night bookings at $220 for up to a group of 4 (with $50 per extra adult and $25 per extra child, per night). Make an enquiry for a speedy response.

Special conditions: Two night stay preferred but single night stays available from $220/night (4 adults). Extra adults $25; extra children $20 The stairs are quaint but steep: therefore might not be suited for the less mobile and children under 5 years old. However stair gate is available and easily installed if required. Portacot and highchair available Smoking outside only please. No pets thank you.

  • Special property in a handy location

    Special property in a handy location. Garden and house are impressive. We are hoping to stay there again.

  • This cottage was perfect

    This cottage was perfect. My friends described it as decedent, but to me it was magical and enchanting. The oudoor setting was elegant and romantic. Everything that you could require was provided, towels, hairdryer, kitchen needs, even toiletries. My daughter and I felt like princesses, even my teenage boys loved their rooms. Only slight negative was the stairs but after one small trip we managed taking them slowly. This house suited the chch feel & made our stay special. We will be back.

  • Great location

    Great location. Short walk to Hagley Park. Period style property, well presented and complete with everything you would need for a short or long term stay. Not suitable for small children. Beautiful private gardens to sit back and relax in (with a glass of wine and cheese). Highly recommended. Would definitely come back to this one.

    The location was nice and handy to our needs in Christchurch. It was walking distance to several restaurants which we enjoyed dining at.
