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.

  • Great property and location

    Great property and location. The house it's self is very cute, along with the furnishings. Everything was very clean and tidy. My Chinese guests that stayed here with me loved the house. The stairs do need to be considered if you have issues with getting up or down stair cases.They were not an issue for us however. Thanks Danielle.

    Fantastic location, beautiful home. Thanks for allowing us to stay in this gorgeous home, we felt like royalty. Sorry we left the xmas lights outside, we forgot to put them back due to the downpour as we were leaving.
