  • Property was enjoyable, we all loved the house

    Property was enjoyable, we all loved the house. Location was pleasant, with the surrounding bush.

  • Loved the view! Interesting building and well appointed

    Loved the view! Interesting building and well appointed. Everything was in order. Plently of towels and beds were comfy. Unsuitable for someone who has trouble with stairs. There are 3+ living levels.

  • Wonderful place to stay

    Wonderful place to stay. House was well set up with everything you would need and the nice extras like electric blankets, great fire place etc. Although it's settle amongst the trees the house gets lots of sun and has a great view from the upper level.

  • Great house, complete with everything needed for a short or long stay

    Great house, complete with everything needed for a short or long stay. About 15 minutes drive from central christchurch, with great views over the estuary. The house has a few flights of stairs inside that might be an issue for some.
