  • 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.

Special conditions: Although we prefer 2 day bookings, we will take single night bookings at $220 (Occupancy for up to 4 adults). Please enquire regarding this option. The stairs are quaint but steep: therefore not suited for the less mobile and children under 5 years old. No smoking permitted inside.

  • We enjoyed our stay at Rhodes Cottage

    We enjoyed our stay at Rhodes Cottage. Easy access to both the airport and train station. Great neighbourhood and we especially liked the fact that it is very close to Hagley Park and the Botanic Gardens.
