My house is friendly and warm in Winter, with a nice private garden in Summer. I have a heat pump and a pellet fire. There are double doors around the house that open to the terrace for enjoying the hot days.
I love meeting people from all over the world and hearing your stories.
I'm happy to provide tea and coffee, with breakfast or dinner being a negotiable extra.

The space

Living in Burnside is a great spot for jumping off to the city and the South Island. I am close to the airport, 10 - 15 minutes to the city centre, depending on traffic, and it's easy to get on the ring road heading North or South.
My house is in a quiet street and very private. Both the front and back gardens are secluded from the street, full of greenery and stunning in Spring.
I've been told plenty of times that my home has a "good vibe". I think it's true, it's a happy house! It may not be big and flashy but it makes you welcome.
I love traveling myself and meeting new people from other places and cultures. I look forward to meeting you , sharing my home and helping you enjoy my city and country.
I'm happy to be flexible with times,meals, and dates of staying. If the date you want isn't available on the calendar, feel free to ask me.It may be that I can wriggle things a bit! My shift work just limits my meet & greet ability! I can leave a key in a lock box.

Guest access

You will be sharing my house, with only my bedroom and office being off limits.
Your bedroom is comfortable and pleasant. The bed is really comfy and I have 'a thing' about decent pillows!! There are electrics blankets but please be careful to turn them off before leaving the room. Of course, I always provide clean bedding and towels. Feel free to ask for extra towels if you need them.

Interaction with guests

I hope to meet people who would like a bit of local knowledge and help, or would just like to swap stories! I am a nurse and am happy to accommodate those who need a bit of extra assistance.
Guide dogs and the like are welcome.
If you want to be private, though, that's fine too!

Other things to note

I may be able to collect you from the airport at times, depending on my shifts.

Sarra's place is perfect for accessing the airport - great location, comfy bed and warm, welcoming house. Communication with Sarra was perfect, and she is the most friendly of hosts.

Hosts are good to manner to talk and friendly. They take care more than enough to help me to located whatever I need. Very easy to go airport too. Room size is little bit tight, because I carried large bag and any one may want to confirm before making reservation if you also have large size bag.

Response from Sarra:
It is easy to see from the photos what my room is like. No-one else has ever complained. I clean the entire bathroom before and after every visitor. Shige left the bath full of hair and did not lock my house when he left, meaning I could have been burgled. I personally had shown him how to do this, too. I have no trouble adjusting the shower but will look into why he managed to break the shower tap.

Sarra's place was a real find. One of my best airbnb experiences. She is a truly generous person that made me feel right at home. The location was convenient and the bed was very comfortable. More than that, though, she makes you feel like family. If you come through Christchurch, you'd really miss out if you missed a coffee and convo with Sarra.

Sarra was so sweet. This was the perfect spot for us, near the airport for us to rest and relax prior to departing for our flight after 2 weeks of travel. She was very friendly, accommodating and we would stay here again. Thanks Sarra!
