I stayed at John and Allanah's with. Y nephew. I couldn't recommend their beautiful home highly enough. On our first evening the weather was fantastic, therefore we took advantage of their beautiful garden and sat outside for a few hours. John and Allanah were incredibly friendly and made us feel welcome in their home.

John and Allanah are lovely people and we enjoyed (EMAIL HIDDEN)munal, spotless kitchen and lounge areas, we found the house comfortable to be in and the beds were good too. Easy to get to from the airport, make sure you pick supplies up on the way, save going out again as shops are not really close by.

We didn't stay a second night here due to a family emergency which meant we had to fly back early. Cancelling the booking through Airbnb was not possible so I texted John to say we weren't coming. He was so caring and understanding.

What a lovely stay with John and Allanah! Couldn't recommend more highly. The room was beautiful with a fab Ensuite bathroom and lovely views. The house was immaculate and we were made to feel very at home - with John even picking us some home grown pears in the morning and giving helpful tips about the local area. Very easy to drive into Christchurch city! Thank you.

Our stay there as like visiting with old friends that haven't been seen in a long time. There were delays in our flight which caused a greater travel time for an already long trip from the states. There were also problems with the rental car so our arrival was late and we were overtired and stressed. These people were most welcoming and helped us relax into their surroundings, which are almost park or botanical garden like. Once the car problems got straight, we were able to settle in and spend some time chatting. The following day, after returning from our sight seeing, they had friends over and invited us to join then for a class of wine, snacks and more good company. If you wanted to chat, it was welcomes and yet your privacy was respected if you so choose. They were helpful and knowledgeable about the area and freely shared that information. If you want the hustle and bustle of the city, this is not the place for you. The location is not that far from the city, a short drive, and the pastoral setting will help you ease into the New Zealand countryside and people.

This has been one of our favorites. John was very helpful with our future travel plans. Their home is not only beautiful but impeccable for cleanliness. If ever in the area again would love to go back.

My wife Allanah and I are sports fans, and enjoy travelling. Although we both work, we look forward to getting back to our Olive Grove at the end of each day to enjoy the tranquility. We have have had some awesome stays at Airbnb while travelling and now would like to share our place with you.
