  • Rae was super friendly and accommodating, so was her partner, Brendan. Rae's place is the tidiest and most clean farm house I've ever been to; it's pretty stylish too. My room was of medium size, yet it's super comfortable and welcoming. Also, just for a little bit extra, you can enjoy delicious dinner cooked by Rae herself!!

  • This is quite a neat space! We loved the feel of this homey, older cottage! The airiness with the French doors open out onto the decks, the many seating areas outside, the two lovely fireplaces, the well equipped kitchen, and soft linens. We also enjoyed the chickens, ducks, mature trees, and the curious fan tails! Very close to several lovely bays, grocery stores, and the airport. Thank you Julie, we had a wonderful, relaxing stay!

    5 minutes from the beach; the mouth of the Rakaia River, a well known salmon fishing site; and Lake Ellesmere Waihora; on a working farm growing saffron, walnuts and forestry. There are plenty of friendly animals and maybe a freshly laid egg for breakfast. 45-50 minutes drive south from Christchurch city, 10 minutes east of state highway 1. The nearby villages boast outlets for local arts, crafts and antiques, and a fine swimming pool for the many hot summer days.
  • Great place, lots of space, the friendliest animals and the hospitality is second to none.

    Rory2020-04-02T00:00:00Z

    Wake up to the tranquil sounds of birdsong, and enjoy a morning coffee while the sun rises in front of you. For breakfast, enjoy eggs fresh from the farm, or home-made granola. This peaceful retreat is a converted barn, with animals right outside your window. With uninteruppted views of our ever-changing rural landscape, you're sure to feel refreshed after your stay. The decor is cozy yet modern, with a range of board games and puzzles for you to enjoy. Or simply sit and enjoy the view!
    The bedroom is cozy with moody lighting and views of the hills. We also have a dining table, kitchenette and couch. Or if you want to dine alfresco, take the picnic mat provided and enjoy a picnic on the lawn.
    You'll feel miles away at our peaceful retreat, however both the suburbs of Lincoln and Halswell are just 15 - 20 mins away. Both locations have a supermarket, an array of bars and restaurants and other amenities. Or if you want to stay local, have a coffee or fresh-fruit ice cream (depending on the seasons) at the famous Raspberry Cafe or The Store. Both cafes are just a 10 minute drive from your accommodation.

  • A very nice place to stay when you want to visit Banks Peninsula. To get to Christchurch it‘s approximately 20min. But that wasn‘t a problem with our rental car (don‘t be afraid to drive on an unsealed road) The place is very tidy and everything you need for breakfast is included. We can totally recommend this place.

We live in a very quiet, safe crescent, a short walk to the bus stop, the shops. FOR THOSE AVID SKIERS/BOARDERS Mount Hutt and Porter Heights are within 90 minutes drive from our home. Canterbury’s two most popular ski fields. We are 10 mins drive from Lincoln university and 25 from ch-ch city
    We allow smoking but outside only. We also have plenty of parking space in our locked property.
    Lovely, safe, quiet crescent. We are tucked out the back so we are very private.
  • A must stay if you're visiting Rolleston! Tim and Imogen are super friendly and open their lovely home to you with welcome arms. The facilities are excellent, nothing is too much trouble and they're always happy to advise and help when needed. The two black labs are gorgeous and so, so friendly!! I'd stay again without hesitation and hope to stay in touch in the future as am settling in Rolleston from the UK.

They will welcome you in their home with a great old fashioned Kiwi spirit of hospitality and enjoy getting to know you during your stay. It's a shame I can only give 5 stars to these wonderful people - can't speak highly enough of this team !

  • Second time I've stayed here - great hosts, great location, great space!

    Simon2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Scott and Diane are great friendly hosts and their place is modern, comfy and spotlessly clean. Lincoln high street, with its shops and takeaways, is about a 15 minute walk away, and the buses to Rolleston and Christchurch stop just near to the pub!

    Simon2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Staying with Scott and Di felt like staying with family. They were so helpful, friendly and welcoming. They were always happy to chat but also gave me my own space. I highly recommend them as hosts and would definitely stay again if I was back in Lincoln. 

    Rosie2019-12-06T00:00:00Z

    Large open plan kitchen. Two Large rooms, one Queen size bed in a common area (which incorporates the kitchen) and the other a king size bed in a large spacious bedroom. This accommodation unit is situated on a working farmlet in the quietness of the countryside with all the comforts of home. Common room with queen bed, includes full kitchen, microwave, oven, fridge, fireplace, bathroom, television, and DVD player. A private garden is also part of the quiet countryside accommodation.
    Amazing large rooms accommodate two guests or four. All my guests have remarked about the spaciousness and comfort of the rooms, and the quietness and tranquility of the countryside. Part of a working farm that has cows, calves, chickens, Friesian horses, working dogs and two cats. I also offer a horse drawn carriage drive to our local vineyard for winetasting, or just a leisurely carriage drive in the countryside, for a extra fee. (arranged at check-in)
    Set in a quiet rural area but only 10 minutes drive from the nearest shopping area (Rolleston) with fuel station, supermarkets, restaurants, takeaways, gift shops and everything that the larger shopping malls have to offer without the congestion of the city. Your accommodation is only 50- 90 minutes drive from all the major ski field ( Mt Hutt, Porters ski area, Mount Cheeseman) and 45 minutes from the beach, making it possible to ski in the beauty of the Southern Alps during the day and visit the beach in the afternoon/evening and watch the sun go down. There are beautiful walking tracks only 40 minutes drive away, and a river just a few minutes drive from the farm to cool off on those hot summer evenings.
  • We had a great time here! We felt so welcomed and we really enjoyed it. Thank you so much

    Johanna2020-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • Lock down changed our plans drastically and we couldn't enjoy the place to its full potential. It is however an amazing house, most spacious bedroom I've ever stayed in. Totally recommended for when things settle down

    Shahzad2020-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • We felt so at home and relaxed. Loved the hospitality, the accommodation, and the surroundings.

    Tony2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Set outside of Christchurch on a beautiful farm, a great spot for a single traveler or couple who are on their way South on Highway one and who want to rest up. A central location to access to motorway and to the gateway to the Southern Alps and Otago/Southland/Fiordland. Definitely reccomend the stay for fresh bacon and egg breakfast (you cook for yourself) in a cosy farm unit that has everything you could need! Thanks Helen! See you soon.

  • I enjoyed my stay at Llea-Annes unit, it was very relaxing and was made to feel like it was my home. It is so good to stay at a air BnB that treats you as a person and not just a paying guest. Everything in the unit was comfortable and clean. I don't know how any reviewers could not enjoy the facilities that were provided, there was provisions in fridge for breakfast and some extras as well. Thank you Llea-Anne for a relaxing stay, and hope to catch up with you again.

    Rex2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Wow. This tour left me speechless in the best way. Most horse treks are made up of horses who have been turned to drones taught only to follow behind the one in front. This tour was not that. Instead, the horses were well behaved and clearly enjoyed their jobs trekking through the gorgeous New Zealand countryside. If you have previous horse experience, this tour becomes even more fun as you are given the chance to run through fields and climb steep hills. Chris was our tour guide. He clearly enjoys his work and is extremely knowledgeable about what he does. This trek was worth every penny spent. And if I ever find myself back in the area there is no doubt in my mind that I will be back for another tour. If you want a unique experience that takes you to see some of the most beautiful sights New Zealand has to offer, look no further. You’ve found it.

    Burnham, Canterbury, New Zealand

    A country stay south of Christchurch just off Route 1. Near Burnham (Military Camp), Rolleston, IZone and the Selwyn Equestrian Centre. Self contained (en suite) accomodation which is part of a professional equestrian facility (sadly there are no horses to ride; but you can bring your own). As this is a working equestrian facility you may hear life starting around 7:30am with the horses as the quad bike is needed for mucking and feeding out.
    Self Contained Flat. 2xHeat Pumps/Air Con (Bedroom and Longe). Very well insulated (cool in summer/warm in winter). Bedroom has king bed with Ensuite Showeroom.
    Quiet (Rural).

    Vaughan2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 3 weeks at Tony and Brugs’ place in the countryside. It was the perfect home base for exploring Canterbury and beyond. We loved coming home to our quiet, lovely home among pastures. The apartment has everything for a long (or short) stay with plenty of linens, kitchenware, and cleaning products. It is spotlessly clean, has great WiFi and a really comfy bed. Tony and Brugs are wonderful hosts who welcomed us warmly and gave tips for seeing the area. Pip is always alert and the horses are beautiful. A fabulous stay in a beautiful country.

    NancyLee2020-02-26T00:00:00Z

They’re very welcoming and go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. Once I arrived, I met Allan’s mother and she immediately made me feel at home and even assisted me with my laundry. The entire house is clean and tidy and the bedroom/bathroom is such a cute space. I wish I would have stayed longer.

The directions on check in were super clear. Location of the place was ideal as it is a short 5 mins drive to various restaurants and supermarket. The room was super clean and very comfortable. Overall I would recommend to you guys if you need a place to stay that is in a quiet neighborhood. Would stay here again if we were to come back to NZ.

  • The room is very comfortable and perfectly clean. Also it is equipped with everything you need (microwave, fridge, water heater, etc.). Tea and coffee are provided as well. The bathroom is very large with two sinks, shower and bathtub. We really enjoyed our stay. Paul and Hana are also very supportive with recommendations about what you can do around Christchurch. Travel magazines are available in the room.

  • We enjoyed our one night stay at Paul's place after a late flight. The place was exactly as described, sparkling clean and had everything we needed. Not far to the airport. Paul was very friendly and communication was great. Thanks for a lovely stay

    Our place is 10 minutes to Lincoln township in a rural Canterbury setting. The house is set on 7 acres, is surrounded by a lovely cottage garden and has a cosy old world feeling. The original part of the house is an 1880s cottage and your accommodation includes a lounge, dining, small kitchen area and covered outside seating areas. Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids) or anyone exploring Canterbury and beyond who enjoys a tranquil garden setting.
    The quiet garden setting and victorian charm of the cottage make a wonderful space for relaxing while the location is perfect for day trips to other attractions around Banks Penninsula and Canterbury. The kitchen has a bench top oven/microwave and a 2 ring hotplate and there is also a large bbq so you can cook your own meals.
    Motukarara is in a lovely rural setting only 10 minutes to Lincoln township which has all your necessities, supermarket, cafes and eateries. It's only approx 25min to Christchurch City, around 15min to Little River and less than an hours scenic drive to Akaroa the gorgeous jewel in the crown of Akaroa Harbour. A great place to base yourself and explore the greater district.
  • Very nice house in a beautiful garden, quiet in the countryside. It is good to live here!

  • We loved staying here.it was like stepping back in time. The gardens are beautiful. Our hosts whent out of there way to make us comfortable.

  • Rachel and Kyle’s place is a peaceful, comfortable, rustic and spacious farmhouse. There are several outdoor spaces where you can sit or wander through the orchards and gardens. We enjoyed our time there.

    Steven2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Rachel and Kyle make sure you have everything you need for a perfect stay. Comfy furnishings and thoughtful touches.

  • Rachel and Kyle’s cottage is amazing. This 1880s historic garden cottage has so much charm! ❤️We keep feeling amazed when exploring the beautiful gardens and seeing the little details in the house. We had so much outdoor space to relax and the outdoor sitting area was cozy and thoughtful. The dogs and cats are friendly. The gardens are beautiful. Staying in this place is like Alice in the Wonderland is not exaggerating! We didn’t meet Rachel but Kyle has been very friendly and warm. It’s a really special experience for us staying in this property!

  • So restful/relaxing - your own secret garden! We truly enjoyed our stay here and feel this would be the perfect place for a family. There are numerous indoor and outdoor spaces that are private and a larger garden that the family welcomes you to wander through - therefore, there is space for people to spread out and not be cramped like a hotel room. 6 rooms total - 2 bdrms (1 full/double and 1 with 2 twin beds), a living room and a sitting area and a full kitchen and a bathroom. There were 3 patio doors that opened out into garden space, so everywhere you looked, you were surrounded by nature. There were 2 outdoor spaces with tables and chairs and a deck with a small table. The full size fridge and completely outfitted kitchen (and outdoor grill) meant you could cook full meals here if you wished. There were paths through the gardens that kept opening up into separate "rooms", including ponds and hedges. However, guests need to be aware that the furnishings, etc are more historic/antique, so don't expect modern home conveniences. No TV, but did have wifi. We enjoyed all of the antiques, even the toliet with the pull chain to flush and overhead copper tank - it was a little noisy, but very neat! There is a footed soaker tub (didn't get to try), but the shower is an afterthought - fairly small, just a box w/ a curtain, really. Didn't find a hair dryer, but maybe my fault as everything else was supplied. The rooms adjoin the family living space, so we did hear a tiny bit of noise once in awhile and the dogs barked a couple of times. They stocked the fridge with some breakfast items (milk, juice, bread, jam) and had fruit on the counter. Also supplied many amenities in the bathroom (lotions, bath salts, etc). Overall, we really enjoyed our stay & wished it could have been longer. I hope this property stays on Airbnb - it was really unique - as the owners were selling and not sure of the buyers intention.

  • This property is so charming and cozy! Hosts Rachel and Kyle are very warm, helpful, and accommodating. The guest space feels spacious and comfortable. The expansive gardens are absolutely beautiful and very well maintained. I also loved meeting all 3 furry members of the welcoming committee! I would highly recommend this place to anyone seeking a relaxing country stay within easy driving distance of Christchurch and Akaroa.

    Gabriela2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • As true as described in the listing. Hosts are really super host. Property is huge and gardens are amazing. lots of books and toys for the kids. Rachel showed us how to use fire place and so many things to kids.

Very clean and stylishly decorated.
