Description

  • 2 minutes from the leafy environs of Hagley Park.
  • 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, Sky TV, 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 $25 per extra adult and $20 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.

    The location was fantastic with easy access to the central city, Hagley park, and Merivale shops. There is a dairy and some shops within a three minute walk and the house is straight down the road from the airport. The house itself is lovingly decorated and well appointed. So much charm. The shower cubicle is a bit smaller but not a big issue and would definitely stay again. Very cosy.

    The property was beautiful! The pictures on the website do not do it justice. My friends and I stayed there for 4 days while visiting from Sydney and we absolutely loved it. The fire place, the heated floor in he bathroom, the fresh towels and linen, the beautiful back garden and the decor all impressed us. There is nothing I can fault with this property, it was a truly a gift to book and stay here.
