Studio, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 2)
David and I love living by the sea in Sumner. We think its a beautiful part of the world. It seems only natural to want to share what we have with you.
Why catherinepl3 chose Sumner
We have lovingly slowly restored a hundred year old bungalow style home and added a stand alone studio behind our house with a private outside bath. We have creatively put a lot of ourselves into this home and are happy to share it with you. It is a sunny spot close to the beach.
What makes this Studio unique
Plenty of walking and cycling tracks both on the flat and the hills. Swimming Beach 100 metres away. A short walk to the village centre. The bus stop is within 130 metres of our home. The bus will take you to the city and airport.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The place was exactly as described but my only disappointment was the lack of host interaction. We weren’t given check-in instructions, when I rang the front door I was basically told it was ready. We went and let ourselves in. We were lucky to catch the host in the driveway who then gave us the nickel tour. We had no idea where the fridge, wonderful outdoor tub, or kettle were until then. It would have been nice to know that many restaurants weren’t because it was Monday or they were only seasonal. We walked about until we found one then waited for it to open.
It is tiny, clean, and in a great location close to the beach.
Thanks for the review Joelyn. Unfortunately I was away and was unable to meet you. My teenage daughter met you. Fortunately my husband was able to show you around. It was remiss of me to have missed sending you your check in instructions.
A cute cozy studio with plenty of character!
Was perfect for our brief (unfortunately) overnight stay on way through Christchurch. Cute, cozy, with plenty of character! Absolutely loved the outdoor private bath! Way better than some boring motel. Thanks Catherine! We will have no hesitation in staying again if passing through. Nice linen and bathrobes too! Cheers
Lovely little cubby cottage. Very comfy. Be prepared though as there is NO television or radio. BYO breakfast.
Thank you Heather for your review. It clearly shows in the amenities that there is no radio or tv and no we do not provide breakfast but there is an excellent cafe across the road who do amazing breakfasts or you can bring your own.
Gorgeous little place to stay, with everything we could need and more.
Suited our needs entirely and would certainly return to stay again. The outdoor bath was a real treat ☺
Lovely space in lovely summer
Lovely space. Helpful welcoming hosts. Great location - all but on the beachfront. Great restaurants easy walk. The outdoor bath is really delightful. Ingenious and stylish use of space
Hello Katherine and Rob, thank you so much for your lovely review. Sorry I didn't see you before you left. It was lovely to have met an conversed with you during your stay with us.
Stunning wee cabin in Sumner.
Great stay. Warm, comfortable, cosy. Perfect for a weekend and by the beach.
We are in a small seaside village 15 minutes drive from Christchurch city. We have plenty of local cafes, bars and restaurants within walking distance. We are on the flat close to the beach and no more than a 15 minute walk to the village centre.
