A wonderful, relaxing hideaway that is only 10mins drive into the city and 20mins from the airport. You can dive into the pool or relax in the spa taking in the beautiful views of the city and the Alps beyond. The studio has a small kitchen with a microwave and portable stove top but if you would like to eat out there are wonderful restaurants and bars only 2mins drive away. Fast wifi and a TV with Netflix and Sky Tv will make sure you are never bored.
“These Kiwis are unbelieveable!!! We Yanks arrived in Christchurch just as the Covid 19 Level 3 kicked in and Level 4 was forty-eight hours away. Although we had Dee's place booked for three days, she allowed us to check out early so we could book an earlier flight to Auckland. AND she mailed home a bunch of our stuff that we could not fit into our suitcases! Love these hosts. Now on to Dee's lovely place: It sits high over Christchurch so the views will take your breath away. As you walk up the stairway you immediately notice the beautiful swimming pool on the left and the hot tub on your right. As you enter, sunlight streams in and illuminates your room. The kitchen is very well equipped, so you will have no problem preparing meals. The bed is super comfortable and there is plenty of space in the bathroom. Everything is exceptionally clean. Even though a washing machine is not part of the Airbnb description, Dee allowed me to use her washer and dryer to be ready for our emergency exit from New Zealand. I I hope someday we will be ale to return and stay with Dee again--there's so much more we want to do in Christchurch. These are definitely five stars hosts at a five star place!”
The room available has a comfortable king single bed and is suitable for a single guest. Guests have exclusive use of their own bathroom adjacent to the bedroom. Breakfast of cereal, bread, tea, coffee etc is available. This accommodation is particularly suitable for a quiet guest who is happy to interact with a local host.
“I highly recommend staying with Peter as he is an amazing host with his newly renovated place which is beautiful and had all everything you need to have a wonderful stay. Awesome conversations, clean tidy place, helpful host. Sometimes you might even hear his wonderful tunes from him playing the piano! Definitely an ideal airbnb place to stay!”

“Perfect! We had high expectations for our stay based on all the excellent reviews, but even those were surpassed. Our stay was delightful in every way. The clean, stylish, large and well equipped apartment with a very comfortable bed was just the foundation - the location is gorgeous, with beautiful views from every window, and the entire setting is peaceful and the most inviting spot to sit on your deck and enjoy life. The hosts themselves are the warmest and most welcoming we have met in years of staying at Airbnbs around the world. Finally, every attention to detail is met - from the fresh baked bread to possibly the only place in New Zealand with screens on the windows!. If you enjoy walking, the Port Hills offer endless opportunities. The town of Lyttleton is vibrant and you're in close driving distance to both the Banks Peninsula and Christchurch.”
