Something different. This loft sits above Exchange (XCHC), a project that was born out of the 2011 earthquake and was designed to connect people with the cities creative side and community. • Heritage building • Close to the central city • 20 on-site artist studios • Private entry, room, laundry, ensuite, parking • Downstairs venue hosts local shows and events • Social & eclectic cafe/gallery that is a popular hangout • Sometimes we come up to bake, but we're only as social as you'd like :)
The bedroom is private, with a comfortable queen bed and an additional single-size cot available on request. Full en-suite bathroom. The upstairs lounge area has plenty of natural light and includes a corner workspace. The kitchen has everything you might need, top shelves of fridge are yours or help yourself to whats there, but because it is shared with the cafe, cooking items etc might end downstairs, so just ask if you need anything :) The space is in an industrial area so you may hear traffic, or events downstairs in the evening (until 10pm at the latest) XCHC is a project designed after the earthquakes to support creative people and ideas in the city. By staying here, you’re investing in our arts community and providing opportunities for new creative projects in our arts space downstairs. We want visitors to be able to easily find creative experiences so they get the most out of our unique city so we host regular exhibitions workshops and events, as well as feature local foods, pop-up kitchens, guest chefs whenever possible. The cafe manager Pedro (amazing barista/vegan chef/baker/marathon runner/bassist) pops in weekdays to bake and will make sure the loft smells amazing :)
The heart of the CBD is within 30 minutes walking distance. We’re in between the suburbs of Sydenham and Woolston.  Sydenham is a short walk to the west and features smaller galleries as well as The Colombo Mall for shopping and entertainment.  To the east, Woolston is the home of craft beer breweries (3 Boys Brewery & Twisted Hop), and The Tannery - a Victorian arcade with shops, live music, an arts cinema, and yoga studio.   Buses to the beach suburb of Sumner or the port town of Lyttelton leave every 15 minutes and take only a half hour.
  • We had a wonderful stay and would happily come back anytime. Preston is a very helpful host who gave us a secure place to stay during the lockdown of Covid-19. He would always check on us to make sure we had everything we needed. The apartment is beautiful and has tasteful interior with attention to detail. Thank you for a lovely stay!

  • Highly recommended!! Lovely spacious space above an art gallery, cafe and social space. Preston was super warm and welcoming, I’ll certainly return again.

    Harriet2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • This space is the perfect spot to explore Christchurch! You will get in touch with all the creative people working in the warehouse just below the apartment, get amazing insider tips and recommendations, which is the best way of exploring a new city! Listen to the locals! Plus the cafe downstairs has amazing food and it’s just awesome when you wake up in the morning and the kitchen smells like freshly baked goodies 👌😊 Besides that, it’s clean , super private, nice and comfy bed, super host with Preston who instantly answers any questions you might have. 110% recommend to stay here and will (if we make it back to CHC) stay there again!

  • Preston's place is not like anything else. The little apartment upstairs from the cafe has everything you need for your stay, and Preston makes sure we feel at home right away. The building houses a few artists in residents and it's a convivial community - warm & friendly while still easy to enjoy your own space. The chef uses the oven to bake a few things for the cafe downstairs - always smells divine! The location is surprisingly close to everything, even though it's in the middle of an industrial area. Parking is easy around the back, or right at the front if there's space. If you're looking for a unique & comfortable place to stay in Christchurch, you've found it. We highly recommend Preston's place :-)

    Terry2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Easy walk into town - about 20 mins. Great food and coffee and art downstairs

    Ewen2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely and friendly place to stay, with cosy rooms and great atmosphere

    Tamara2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • This loft apartment is the kind of unusual place that really makes AirBnB a worthwhile choice. The building is on a busy main road but traffic died down at night and it was only a few minutes drive to good restaurants and bars. The cafe, gallery and artists' studios downstairs are great to visit and we enjoyed chatting with some of the folks creating work there. Preston was a terrific host with a big vision for this project. We wish him well and will definitely be back to see where he takes it next. The apartment itself is fresh, light and large with (unsurprisingly) interesting artworks and furnishings. We didn't mind the baker coming up and using the oven at all... divine smell of fresh croissant, what's not to like!

    Pauline2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Preston was more than accommodating. He helped us out with a ride from the airport, which was above and beyond. The space was clean and a great spot to rest after checking out the CBD. A little out of the city, which worked for us We were happy to stay a bit away from the hustle and bustle. Definetly eat in the cafe below, the food and coffee are great. Will 100% stay again if I'm back in Christchurch.

  • We had a great weekend at Claire’s. We were at CCHH for a wedding and her private suite was great for us. The access to the suite is independent and it has a very charming balcony. Claire provides some continental breakfast items which was great. Location is great, we walked a lot and downtown felt close. I would totally recommend staying at her place!

    Carlos2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • The space is small but very carefully arranged and very private. I enjoyed my stay - it was great to be so close to the park.

  • We received a lovely welcome from Claire and were grateful for the use of her washing machine facility. It is an easy 15 minutes walk into the centre of the city and there is a beautiful large park juts minutes away. It was handy having a few shops near by, too. Claire's place is cosy and was ideal for our one night stopover. We would stay again definitely.

    Bob2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • A delightful haven, well appointed and with a wonderful host. Highly recommend and would definitely stay again.

  • Quirky place in a terrific location in Christchurch! Walking distance to everything around the city, and terrific restaurants. Very clean, and Max was extremely responsive and helpful!

    Nicolette2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in Christchurch!

    Torkel2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot 3 blocks to shops and restaurants...near cycling paths. But immediate block is car dealerships. And glad I arrived in daylight. Bedroom and bathroom is on upper floor.

    K2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and the apartment has everything you need. Shower has great pressure and the bathroom heater is nice for chilly mornings. Layout is quirky but there's a big dining table and comfy sofa chairs. I'd stay again, the carpark and location are such a bonus.

    Andrea2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Max is an excellent host, always replying immediately to any questions and trying to help with any kind of issue! The flat is really nice and quirky. You just have to get used to being on quite a busy street, in terms of traffic, and that there is a parking lot right in front of you. So not the most scenic of places, and you can’t really keep your drapes open. But on the other hand the river is just behind the building and it is just a block away from the heart of Christchurch. So a very good place to be based! Also, Max has two bikes he lets you use, which is fantastic in a flat city like Christchurch, perfect for biking! I really enjoyed my stay!

    Mila2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • A great use of a unique space to create a home in the city without it feeling like a hotel. Very convenient to have a secure car park and be walking distance to everything in the city - would recommend to friends and stay again.

    Jade2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • The location of the house is very good, dining and shopping are very convenient. The facilities are complete and it is very convenient to cook for yourself. The landlord had detailed instructions before check-in and the stay was smooth. Recommend everyone to stay.

  • Nice place, great location. Max and Jenny both great to deal with.

    Set within the widely acclaimed BOXed Quarter precinct, this funky, beautifully appointed two bedroom ARTpartment presents as a fusion of art, design and comfort.
    The ARTpartment has a modern but quirky feel. Art is featured throughout with a focus on artwork from various local artists. This is complimented by the pieces in the surrounding precinct so please be our guest and come and immerse yourself in the ARTpartment experience.
    A myriad of eateries down below in BOXed Quarter are complemented by the infamous nearby Little High Eatery. Centrally located adjacent to the Innovation Precinct, a network of laneways and Ara Tertiary Education Institute, the ARTpartment is convenient for tourists, business people and families alike.
  • We had a really fun time staying in this quirky art filled apartment! It’s super central to the city, has a supermarket down the street and amazing hospitality services underneath 👍

    Gypsy2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great apartment only a 10 minute walk from Christchurch city centre. Heaps of cafes and restaurants nearby. Cosy and interesting apartment with heaps of little touches to make a great stay plus excellent shower and comfy beds.

    Nectaria2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • This is a super cool apartment & easily large enough for the four of us. The location is superb, loads of dining options and a great cafe just below. The bathroom was surprisingly big too. No parking but easy (and free) all-day on street parking a few minutes walk away. Overall, we loved it!

    Saurabh2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • It's a very lovely apartment, really like the artistic decoration

    Nan2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic stylish apartment located very centrally. Easy check-in, in a lively neighbourhood.

    Robert2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • great place. good location. actually pretty quiet on weekends.

    Richard2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed 3 nights at Art’s apartment. It is a great place to stay - light and sunny, well equipped and stylishly decorated. It is also a perfect location for exploring the city - an easy walk to shops, the park and the river. And best of all it is right in the heart of the SALT district with lots of wonderful cafes, bars and restaurants right on your doorstep. Would highly recommend.

    Susan2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • Neat and stylish apartment in a great spot. Lots of good food options downstairs at Boxed Quarter and other the road at Salt. Easy walk to lots of spots in the city. Highly recommended.

    This lovely place is located in a beautiful Vineyard setting, close to French Farm Bay. Wine is available at the Cellar Door. The Barn is suitable for romantic couples or small group of family or friends. Note this accommodation is upstairs. Brand new ENSUITE upstairs now also! Barn is for you to enjoy all to yourselves and is unhosted. However during the afternoons the downstairs cellar door is open to the public to purchase wine and this becomes a shared space on Fri to Sun 11am and 5pm .
    Unique setting up a quiet country road, with beautiful views across the vineyard and lovely views down to the water at French Farm. Opportunity to sample and purchase wine onsite 6 days per week (closed Monday)! Beautiful French Farm Garden across the road which is open to the public daily. Lovely walk or cycle down to the beach at French Farm.
    Historic French Farm Valley location, surrounded by lovely homes and picturesque valley and sea views.
  • A lovely, peaceful stay on the beautiful Banks Peninsula. A gorgeous place for 2-4 travelers (my wife & I had a lovely two-night stay) looking to enjoy the Peninsula, wine country, and Akaroa (without having to stay in Akaroa). Can't recommend highly enough - far more peaceful than Akaroa with a lovely pair of hosts!

    Danny2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful spot, really peaceful and relaxing. French Barn was our home for 2 nights while we visited Akaroa and Christchurch. Stunning accommodation with a fantastic bathroom with a lovely shower. Originally we were going to stay down in Akaroa but really pleased we changed our minds!! We did a wine tasting along with a platter of locally produced cheese, honey, red currants and walnuts. This was a really nice touch.

    Samantha2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome space especially with the new bathroom! Highly recommend.

    Olivia2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful spot and unique accommodation! We were also lucky to be the first guests who could enjoy the new spotless modern bathroom in the room. We as family of four really enjoyed our stay and didn't want to leave.... The view over the banks and water is impressive and the cellar room is such a unique place to spend the evening and eat your dinner. Also the outdoors sitting area is well thought about with many flowers, nice big wooden table and chairs. We hope to come back!

    Koen2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • We made this last minute reservation and were delighted with our stay. Our very late arrival was made nicer with a clean and warm place and easy directions. While not in the middle of things, we loved the charm and surrounding beauty. Can’t wait to return!

    Jacquelyn2019-03-17T00:00:00Z
