Cute private cottage with french doors to a garden outlook. Warm, modern, fully-insulated room for a single or couple. Private and quiet, yet close to everything. Access to outdoor space, garden and tree-house.

The space

Come and stay in this funky standalone cottage, separate from the main house in the beautiful suburb of St Martins. There are two rooms available that share a modern bathroom and kitchenette. These are in a separate building to the standalone cottage - about ten paces away. Private and quiet, yet good coffee, restaurants, bars and supermarket at either end of the street. 2 minutes walk to lovely river walks and parks. 5 min drive to central city, 20 minutes to the beach, 20 mins to the airport, 15 minutes to the peninsula.

PLEASE NOTE: The bathroom and kitchen are 10 paces away from the private, standalone, insulated cottage.

FRIENDLY: Gay-friendly, vegetarian-friendly, eco-friendly, people-friendly.

SNORING, SINGING, SEX: Your room is separate from the main house and from the other room that shares the bathroom/kitchen. There is nothing on the other side of your walls, so you can do as much snoring, singing or sex as you like without worrying if anyone can hear you.

Guest access

PROVIDED: Queen bed, sofa couch, desk and free wifi plus access to outdoor space and tree-house. Shower, toilet and kitchenette shared with one other airbnb room. Washing machine and dryer also available. French doors out to the garden. Sheets and towels provided. Parking space available. Bicycle and yoga mat usually available (on request)

Interaction with guests

ME: Easy-going and cruisy. I love meeting new people and I'm more than happy to help with anything you need to know about Christchurch, how to get places and where to go for good coffee, good yoga, good shopping, good experiences.

Other things to note

1) This isn't a hotel. It's a warm, funky room with a new bathroom and converted kitchen set up for friendly people to enjoy a private but home-like experience.
2) The washing machine and dryer located in the kitchen are shared with the main house.

Loved this little cottage, great decor and nice if you want some privacy too. Kit was friendly and even helped us out with the kitchen.

Great place. Comfortable, relatively close to town and private. No wifi in the room which made things slightly difficult for a traveller relying on the internet but all in all a good stay!

Didn't get to see Kit throughout our two day stay through no fault of hers (she was at work when we checked in, and whenever we left the house) The cottage was exactly as described on the website, clean but Spartan. The importance of a lack of an attached bathroom did not occur to us until we encountered a storm on the day of arrival, which made going to the toilet an extremely cold and miserable experience. Otherwise the room comes with the basic amenities like a comfy bed and blankets and a heater. A lack of a dustbin meant we had to leave our rubbish lying around until the rain stopped so that we could bin it in the dustbins/recycle bins outside the cottage. The wifi signal at the cottage was next to negligible, and we had to walk into the house just to use it. Check in and out was simple, keys are left in the door of the cottage, and Kit simply requires guests to leave it back in there upon departure. In summary, affordable and clean accommodation as promised in the website, any inconvenience experienced was due to our choice as well as the unfortunate weather.

What more comfy way to have breakfast perched among the organic vegetable garden on a crisp cold sunny day with your best mate. I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Kit's cosy cottage. Even though we arrived late, she was very attentive and made sure everything is fine and made us feel like home. I would love to stay again when I visit Christchurch. Awesome stuff Kit :) Thanks for having us.

Designer by day and curious monkey by night. I'm an easy-going 36 yr old from Christchurch, New Zealand. Passionate about upliftment and living consciously. Yoga, good food, good music and good conversation are what makes my world go round.

I had so much fun as a guest using AirBNB overseas. Now I'm loving being a host!
