Wonderful house for a family
This is a beautiful house with spectacular views and wonderful gardens. The layout of the home is perfect for a family or more than a couple because of the different levels. Very tastefully and practically furnished. Owner lives on premises so any request is immediately addressed. Roads leading to the house are a bit difficult to navigate but there is a reward at the end.
Fantastic Vacation Stay
The property was amazing and we would highly recommend this home for anyone. The home is very spacious and comfortable and the view is amazing. The local community was very welcoming, friendly, and kind. The host(s) were so very warm and endearing and made us feel like being home and part of the family. We will keep our memories of this time close to heart!
Great view. Lots of amenities. Nice owners. We would stay there again.
We really enjoyed our stay. Views are great and home is well equipped. Owners are nice and were committed to our comfort. The place is a bit smaller than it appears on the website especially the deck and access and parking are tight.
Short stay in Christchurch,
Awesome house and views. Highly recommend.
Incredibly fantastic beautiful home with expansive views over Christchurch.
We absolutely loved our stay at Kim's. It was a much welcomed luxurious regrouping after 12 days up the west coast in a small camper van. The spa was such a treat and we loved our table tennis tournament. Thanks so much.
