Jan's place is a lovely, quiet spot very close to the airport and very comfortable. She is an awesome hostess, and even ensured we had some breakfast foods the night before we were leaving since we had an early flight.

Jan's place is beautifully equipped, in a quiet and productive garden, close to airport. She is a well informed, relaxed and conscientious host.

Perfect location for the airport. Great 2 acres to explore amongst the rural cottage feel.

After a very long flight it was such a treat to go into a peaceful setting with lambs, birds and a lovely garden. We loved our little cottage and slept very well, such a quiet peaceful setting. Jan was wonderful and cooked us a delicious breakfast the next morning. Both hosts were very informative as we were new arrivals to the South Island. We highly recommend this place after your long flight as it is also only a 5 mins drive from Christchurch airport! Would definitely stay again.

Jan and Selwyn could not have been more accommodating hosts. The cottage is very private, spacious and peaceful, very comfortable in all ways. After a busy travel schedule, this was exactly what I needed to catch my breath and start off a pleasant holiday in South Island, NZ.

I stayed twice in 3 days with Jan and her family which is a vote of confidence for the welcome, warmth and peace I encountered there. The cottage was spacious, had every convenience and lovely touches like fresh flowers, fruit, and milk in the fridge. My hosts were relaxed, inclusive and very kind about transport to/from the airport. Jan is an excellent communicator and all arrangements were made with ease. It was a privilege to meet my hosts and to stay in their " slice of heaven" as the Kiwi song goes.

We had a short but wonderful stay. The space was large, comfortable and equipped with everything we needed. We had breakfast in the morning and they offered to drive us to the airport. The hosts were extremely helpful and kind. We only wish we could've stayed longer!
