The space

Beautiful sunny room with single bed, spare single mattress and two duvets and pillows. Room also comes with desk and chair, heater, clothes rack with hangers, towels and flannels, spare sheets, bathroom amenities (shampoo/conditioner, body wash etc) and hot water bottles to warm your toes in the winter!

Guest access

Access to all areas of the house (inside and out), except the two private bedrooms. Fire brazier on the porch for evening chill-time. Basic breakfast available every day, along with coffee and tea, and fruit bowl is shared. We are a vegetarian household so please don't cook meat in the kitchen. However we are happy to share our dinner with you depending on day/dates of your stay (no extra charge). Dinner is obviously vegetarian - but I promise very delicious! TV is not connected to a network but HDMI cable available (incl for Mac), so it can be hooked up to your laptop for movies etc. Wifi throughout the house. Small garden out the back with a trampoline for your inner child!

Interaction with guests

You will share the home with myself and my 9 year old son - we will interact with you as much or as little as you like. I work full time and my boy is at school, so we're out of the house during the day, but usually home for a chat, dinner-sharing or movie-watching in the afternoon and evenings. Feel free to ask about any local restaurants, cafes, entertainment, gardens, tourist areas, secret spots or things to do across the city... having grown up in Christchurch, I know it fairly well and will help you out as much as I can!

Getting around

If you have a car, there is parking on the street. Central city (including the local bus exchange) is approx a 15 minute walk. Additionally, I have a campervan and trailer which you can book, providing they are available for the dates you need. If you'd like to book out Bevan (the campervan) and/or Gary (the trailer), please ask and I can check their availability.

This was my second time staying at Radha's place. Once again, communication was easy and check-in was a breeze. My stay there the second time felt even better than the first! Her place is conveniently located near the city centre and I got a good night's rest while I was there. Radha is a very friendly and accommodating host and it was great to have a chat with her. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others.

Very nice stay. Nice and handy to Christchurch Central.

Radha was very helpful and quick reply to message. I was arriving late night but she got everything ready with the pre warmed room. Comfy room and great location. Highly recommended!

A wonderful, warm and comfortable place to stay. Host is incredible and friendly. Radha and Ishaan are the perfect host one could asked for. The best host I've experienced so far. The room is even better than what you see from the picture. Best choice ever!

We had a lovely stay at Radha's place. She was a fantastic and communicative host. She left the key out for us when we arrived as she was not at home at that time. She was super helpful in recommending any places to eat & visit in Chch when asked. Her place is about a 15-20 min walk into the centre of city, and it gives you a chance to view the rest of the city. Radha's house was very cozy, not to mention clean and tidy. The room had plenty of toilet amenities, travel brochures/guides, and some welcome snacks which was a nice touch. And even the mattress was really comfortable. There was plenty of breakfast food provided but we skipped it. We'll definitely be back soon! Thank you Radha, Ishaan & Luke!
