Bed & Breakfast

If you would like to experience staying in our home, which is a very typical New Zealand 3 bedroom home with ensuite double room on a 650 sq metre piece of land. We have an organic vegetable garden with glass house and herb garden. As much as possible we like to grow our own vegetables and use these in our cooking.

  • Experience a genuine Kiwi home
  • Free Internet access
  • Free bus travel within the city
  • Fresh organic produce with homemade cooking
  • Opportunity for flexibility with your travel schedule. (very relaxed about to make your schedule once you have checked the weather out if you like a flexible schedule)

Our home is located in the suburb of Papanui some 4 minutes walk from Papanui Road, 7 minutes drive to the International Airport, 10 minutes walk to Christchurch s second largest shopping mall Northlands, and 10 minutes drive to the nearest golf course, 12 minutes to the beach, 15 minutes to some good fishing areas and just over an hour to the nearest ski field.

Whilst you are staying at my home you are most welcome to make use of our bicycles to go into town…25 minutes away.

Guest Review

The owner/operator Craig worked with us to arrange sightseeing activities, doing the calling to get tickets, preparing breakfast and driving us around. His place is a real house, not a luxury hotel so you feel like you’re staying with a good friend. He is also very knowledgeable about history, geography and the many activities possible around Christchurch. We learned a lot about New Zealand just chatting with him. The property has nice gardening, is located in a middle-class neighborhood and a nice walk to the shops for meals and shopping. It is also near a bus stop for getting downtown.

  1. Hi Craig,
    It looks like you have a fantastic home for visitors to stay in. I have just started a guided hiking business based in Christchurch. The trips are all in the Canterbury area and include day and overnight trips for those who like to experience the beautiful Canterbury landscape. Please have a look at my site for more info. I was wondering if we could support each other, I can recommend your home for clients who are enquiring about their Christchurch trip and you could recommend my hiking expeditions for your more active visitors.
    Please let me know if you see a possibility here. You’re welcome to email or call me and ask further questions about Roaming Guides.

    • Sorry to have been so slow in getting back to you with regards to your inquiry.
      I am always happy to work in with other folk involved in showing others our brilliant part of the South Island.
      I am currently up in Japan for a few weeks but more than happy to get in touch with you when we return and see if and how we can work in together.
