Tiny house located in Christchurch's premium holiday destination. Stunning expansive views over Sumner beach, across the ocean to the Alps.
Newly built in a classic style, The Hut is a little place with timeless charm. Private, sunny and sheltered, in this peaceful location you will fall asleep to the sound of the ocean and wake up to bird song.
Access to the Hut is a few minutes up a walking track. Close to the beach and esplanade.
Surfing, biking, swimming, walking tracks, cafes all on hand.

The space
This is a walk on property that will take 3-5 minutes to access by foot. The paved track is quite steep and requires a moderate level of fitness. Cars can be parked for free on the street at the bottom of the walking track.

The Hut is a small studio space with a basic kitchen and a queen size sofa futon.

There is a bar to sit up to for your meals which has a huge window with spectacular views.

There are two outside deck areas, one small one which catches the morning sun and a bigger deck which gets afternoon sun.

The unique bathroom is outside in a private covered area enclosed with timber slatting and natural boulders.

Where you’ll be

Christchurch, Canterbury, New Zealand

Wander down the Flowers Track to the Sumner Esplanade which runs along next to the beautiful Sumner beach. It's about a 15 minute walk into Sumner village where there are plenty of cafes, restaurants and a cinema.

You can also walk up the Flowers Track and over the hill to Taylor's Mistake Beach which feels more remote and wild.

There are plenty more walking tracks in the area as well as mountain biking and surfing beaches.
