Loved our stay here and would use it again , it was truly a "home away from home". We were impressed with how suitable the house was for a group, lots of space to get away from your group if need be, lovely garden area and a kitchen that was well stocked with all the utensils you need when feeding a team of hungry athletes. Eric (our host) was very prompt in replying to any queries we had and was very friendly and helpful when we met him.

Eric was a great host, very friendly and helpful. The house was lovely, we had the upstairs bedroom and bathroom to ourselves which was perfect. The bed was super comfortable and ENORMOUS! Beautiful views from the room looking out over the Alps. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

I enjoyed my first Airbnb experience very much. Thanks Eric. will definitely use your home again in the future. Eric was really helpful in making sure I knew where everything was and what was expected of me when staying at his home. He made himself available and replied immediately to all my messages as he was away off site. This is a delightful house with excellent amenities and lots of space to relax in. Two separate enclosed gardens that catch the sun and are very sheltered. I enjoyed the peace and quiet of the area. Good quality bed. Very handy to all parts of CHCH. Easy to find a major route from here. Parking space could be a challenge for some. Ok for one car though. I would recommend this home to anyone. Marianne
