  • A unique stay in a great spot. The view is great to just sit and enjoy along with sounds of the birds. Driving the streets of Lyttelton also an experience.

  • Very clean, refreshing, simple, comfortable bed, and a very beautiful dining space. When you get up in the morning, you can see the plants planted by the landlord. It is very happy! All of Love!

  • Lovely small flat with a nice view which is immediately outside the main house. It was nice that we had the whole space to ourselves as Joke wasn’t in, but it might feel overlooked with the main house occupied. Otherwise everything was lovely and the gas cooking facilities worked well with lovely hot water. Would recommend!

  • It is a wonderful apartment in a beautiful small town near Christchurch. There is everything you need and the host will provide fruits, spices and a bottle of sparkling wine. The whirlpool and whole terrace are absolute must, I highly recommend this Airbnb!

  • There's nothing to say that hasn't been said by other reviewers. Our family had a fantastic stay and appreciate everything Gregor provided to make this a wonderful experience for us.

  • Great views and a relaxing place to land after a long day! We enjoyed the spa pool and the little touches like a bottle of bubbly and crumpets made it feel homey. Wish we could have stayed longer!

    Elise2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • The best place to stay Peaceful Great view Great host non intrusive and yet so friendly Spa is gorgeous Locals are so generous Beautiful view Great beds

    Bernadette2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed ourselves relaxing here on our way down the East coast. Nice and peaceful. The hot-tub (which they called a ‘spa’) was heated all the time, so we just had to take the cover off ( 30 seconds or less effort) and get in whenever we wanted. While the view of the working port below may not be to some people’s liking we thought it interesting but our eyes were primarily drawn to the beautiful views of the surrounding hillsides and bay. The main accommodation was great too. Spacious and clean. We would like to stay there again as we happen to be travelling through Christchurch again but unfortunately it is booked solid. Highly recommended.

    Jim2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is spectacular! The location, amenities, beds, cleanliness are all outstanding! Host is easy to communicate with and reply quickly. Even though one bed is in the living room/kitchen area the layout allows for complete privacy from the other bedroom. Great central location to explore Christchurch and the Akaroa peninsula. The town of Lyttleton is also super cute and has everything you need. Our group of 4 highly recommend this property.

    Lyttelton, Canterbury, New Zealand

    We are the proud owners and caretakers of a grand old 1890s villa here on Canterbury St, located on a quiet lane in the center of Lyttelton. It is just a 5 minute walk to access the supermarket, bars, shops, restaurants, famous farmers market, public transportation, ferry to Diamond Harbour and Quail Island. We are a friendly and easy-going couple looking forward to meeting new people and helping them enjoy their time here in the quaint port town of Lyttelton.
    We are passionate about the history of our town and our beautiful home, and feel that 57 Canterbury St is a unique place to stay. We are passionate about the history of our town and our beautiful home, and feel that 57 Canterbury St is a unique place to stay. The land was first developed by Samuel Gundry who arrived in Lyttelton abroad the ‘Steadfast’ arriving in Lyttelton in June 1 8 5 1. The first and remaining dwelling was built in July Nineteen hundred and four by Albert Thomas Mutton. Thomas was known as the Carpenter of London St and went on to own 6 properties in Lyttelton. He built houses and sold them on easy terms and kept a grocery store as well. He also built a school and houses in nearby Rapaki for the local iwi. Thomas his wife Ruby and three sons William, James and Thomas resided at this address for some years after it was built up until Nineteen Nineteen according to the Electoral roll. In the 10 years I have lived at this beautiful property, I have along with the help of my husband created rambling gardens producing organic veggies and with 7 voluptuous chickens have a bountiful supply of free range eggs. We have more than our family can consume and would like to share our spoils with our guests offering breakfast for extra $12pp on weekends. There will be a selection of breads to go with your choice of eggs, garden greens, toasted nuts & seeds and homemade condiments plus coffee or tea. In summer we host an online ‘road side stall’ selling fresh produce and condiments grown and made right here with all proceeds going back into the land and maintenance of this grand old girl on Canterbury St that has stood strong for over 100 years. We also have 4 very friendly cats who love a cuddle or 10 and often sit on the mailbox awaiting friends who will pat them and there human mum who will feed them :)
    Lyttelton is a cute port town that is bustling with activity, and boasts some of the best restaurants in Christchurch. There are several great bars in Lyttelton and it is a lively place on the weekends. From Lyttelton there is access to the entire Banks Peninsula, including the iconic Quail Island and Diamond Harbour. There are plenty of great walks around and the hills of Lyttelton that will provide a fantastic workout for even the seasoned hiker. Explore the bush and forest walks via the Urumau Loop and the Whakaupo Loop, A bracing loop walk with great views that takes you up through Whakaraupo Reserve on the Stan Helms Track and back down the historic Bridle Path.
  • A wonderfully relaxed and friendly place, nothing is a problem. A lovely old house in a great area. Very comfortable beds, we certainly hope to be back. Lyttleton is such a nice town, and a brilliant farmers market!!

    Angy2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • This home is as unique as it gets. In Lyttelton you can get everything you need, but if you want to go in town it’s also just a 20min drive/ 40min bus ride. Outstanding hospitality. Didn’t want to leave, but had to. I‘ll be back a 100%.

    Lenn-Vincent2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great place in a cute little town. The market on Saturday is a must do!

    Tessa2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Debbie's house is so quirky, I loved all the things from bygone eras. There are clocks and pictures on the wall to make it feel like you are in the 1940's. The room is very big so you have lots of space and the bed is comfortable. I only spent one night as I am traveling but I felt very at home. Debbie introduced me to her family and the conversation was easy, interesting and a lot of fun. I liked the area, it is near a lovely bay where you can swim or children can paddle safely I really liked the bathroom with the antique sink surround. I would definitely stay with Debbie again.

    Julian2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • This place instantly felt like home! Staying here calmed me down so much, it brought me closer to myself and it was the perfect start of three months on this beautiful island. The owners are super relaxed, the place and location is beautiful including garden and amazing cats. The area is really good for hiking, the village is just super cute. The fully equipped kitchen is perfect for preparing your meals, I even was able to use some fresh zucchini and tomatoes from the garden. I honestly loved it and I am pretty sure I will come back at the end of my travels. Thank you for sharing your home!

The other aspect of this is that there will be noise from the port, no matter where in Lyttelton you stay, you may hear the port working. Most guests do not find this disturbing and enjoy watching and listening to the workings of the port. We are sure you will too.
  • Best views! And sooo spacious! Betty n Terry are awesome!

  • We loved the space in the house, the view, the bustle of the port and the short walk into the little village with it's great coffee shop, and even a mini brewery, we loved the experience.

    Lillian2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • This well appointed flat is a real treasure. The view of the harbour is fantastic. We had planned to explore Lyttleton but apart from heading out for sustenance we stayed indoors watching the comings and goings in the harbour and were enthralled. A really lovely and relaxing place to stay!

    Sarah2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place to view the Port and gain insight into what makes Lyttelton the special place it is. The apartment is elevated, spacious and light-filled. Others plusses are the deep bath and plush carpet. If you love being above activity and watching an ever-changing landscape this place delivers, even in the late hours. And, for those travelling by bus from Christchurch, the stop is right around the corner, so it's extra convenient. Thank you Betty, for a wonderful stay!

    Kyra2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • I come to Lyttelton every year and always find a new surprise. Betty's place was a fabulous surprise. Loved everything about it.

  • We had a great stay in Kristi’s villa and just loved Lyttelton. The location was excellent- with all cafes etc in walking distance and the view of the harbour was amazing! The house is very cute and quirky - with some minor TLC required. A little bit of a squeeze for our family of 5 adults but we made it work just fine.

    Nicole2020-01-07T00:00:00Z

  • Abby and Aaron are wonderful hosts! They made sure that we had all the amenities we needed, and gave really great recommendations for food and trips out in the South. I can’t express how grateful I am for them! I don’t think my time in Lyttelton would be as great if it weren’t for these two, and little Sunday of course! Thank you for the great hospitality and kindness! ❤️

    Naomi2020-03-06T00:00:00Z

    Our Lyttel Whare (house) is a brand new, architecturally designed tiny home, thoughtfully located and decorated to maximise stunning harbour and hill views and to reflect our funky Lyttelton vibe. With access to a range of local walks, markets, eateries and activities, a break away will leave you feeling enriched and indulged with great memories to take with you. We aim to provide as much information and comfort as you need to have a great experience.
    The Whare is fully self-contained with independent access down a flight of pebbled steps (those with limited mobility may find the path difficult). It includes brand new appliances and is well positioned to make the most of the sun and expansive views that a west-side Lyttelton property has to offer.
    You will enjoy an orchard setting, morning bird-song and the hum of a working port will lull you to sleep. We are located on a private right-of-way with parking just above where you will be staying.
  • Great view and everything you need in a stylish tiny house!

    Yelena2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • After staying in Christchurch a couple days we ventured here for a change of scenery. This spot is great if you don’t have much luggage and don’t mind stairs. We loved our stay. It is close to Lyttleton, but be aware that the restaurants in town closes early. (Before 9 p.m) The view of the wharf is lovely in the evening. The place is spotless and the bed and pillows were some of the best that we had while three weeks in New Zealand. The frig is a nice size and the kitchen is well equipped. Clearly Rachel and Brian have high standards, which we appreciate in BNB owners. A memorable place to stay for sure.

    Brad2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Rachel&Brians Apartment was very beautiful. The place is stylish and cosy and has a great view over the harbor - which you can even enjoy from the bed :) Check in was easy, everything was clean and communication with Rachel&Brian was quick and easy. Thanks for having us!!

  • Our stay on Otaranui Farm was brilliant! Jozefa and her family were warm and friendly which made our stay even better. The property is breathtaking with spectacular views across to Quail Island, Governers Bay and Diamond Harbour. We took Jo up on her offer to show us around the farm, saw some cheeky/boisterous cows and got to pat some very friendly goats! If you can, take the opportunity to walk the tracks around the farm to get a view of the other side which looks straight over the Port and the town of Lyttelton. Bonus was their dog Nik who was always willing to greet us and show us around the property! We will definitely be back next time we head to NZ, thanks for a fantastic stay!

  • The best place we stayed at on our trip down the country! Jozefa’s family were so friendly & lovely, and the cabin/space was gorgeous. Very clean, everything we needed & gorgeous views. Thank you so much for having us! ❤️

    Henriette2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Jozefa's place was perfect in every way. The view is magical, stretching from Govenors Bay to Lyttelton Harbour and across to Diamond Harbour and Church Bay. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you'd need to self-cater. The location is an ideal base for either a vacation in Christchurch or Banks Peninsular. It's very close to the restaurants and cafes of Lyttleton (a nice stroll or a 5 minute drive), while only being a 15 minute drive from central Christchurch. You can easily reach Akaroa, Diamond Harbour and all of the other beautiful bays from Jozefa's place. Jozefa and her family are very friendly and welcoming, and are always on hand to help. I'd definitely stay here again if/when back in Christchurch!

    Morgan2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect spot. I want to move to Lyttleton now!

    Edward2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing farm stay with a stunning view of the hills. Beautiful sunrise and sunset setting with friendly and warm hosts. The walk around the farm with goats, cows and Nick the dog was all amazing. Highly recommend.

    Nikhil2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely spot, cozy wee place that is presented really nicely, has everything you need and the views are stunning. Great location and the farm walk and visits from Nick the friendly dog were an added bonus. Thanks so much, we’ll be back soon!

    Hannah2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful spot, lovely accommodation, animals to feed and play with, farm tracks to walk on, cool and friendly Lyttelton just down the hill, with great food and shopping. Highly recommended.

    Romantic, charismatic & cosy escape from the city with your own private lounge. Our family home is a stunningly renovated character abode perched privately on the hillside with views of Te Ana Lyttelton Marina and Port. Drenched in morning sun, the decking from the french doors is the perfect spot for relaxing and drinking in the activity of the Port and view. There is peace and privacy here, with only a ten minute walk from the centre of Lyttelton. 5 minutes from beach & close to hill walks
    The master bedroom is positioned on the upper floor with spectacular views of the port from the bay window seating with its concertina windows. Lush on summer evenings. The room is beautifully furnished, cool and breezy on hot summer nights and oozes port side cottage charm. The lounge is exclusively yours to enjoy also. The scent of wild jasmine and salty air surrounds and seagulls are often in site. This home was lovingly restored only last year with all the mod cons and comforts of a new build yet with all of the history, character and charm one would expect from a Lyttelton original! There is a very special swimming beach only a ten minute walk from the house 'Magazine Bay'. Quieter than the other more crowded beaches with a picnic table and lovely bush walks surrounding it. The BBQ in the garden is available for you to use. It is so lovely dining alfresco at the moment! We have four cats living on the property (A post Earth Quake abandoned kitty that happened to be pregnant when we rescued her).....They are friendly, well loved and mellow. I can ensure they are not in the rented space if a problem. Our home is the perfect place to experience the essence and character of Lyttelton. At times you can even smell the sailors cigar smoke from the nearby wharf as you climb the steps, mixed with the salty sea air.
    Lyttelton is a quirky, friendly, creative port village hosting some superb restaurants and cafe's as well as the famous Saturday markets that offer a bustling array of goodies as well as arts and music. We are surrounded by Bays, walks and places to go adventuring.
  • This was my second time staying here would 100% recommend! It’s such a beautiful home and the bed is lovely and comfy! Views from the room are wonderful! Host is super helpful and great at communicating. Absolutely love the cats too! Thanks again for a lovely, easy and relaxed stay!

    Kimberley2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • There is a reason why Donya is classified in the "Super hosts" ... and not only one, by the way! By staying with her, you can only be delighted! The bedroom is actually a suite, with a living room opening onto a balcony, and a breathtaking view of the Lyttelton marina. The decoration has been chosen with care: it's pretty, clean, original ... it's a real pleasure to spend time in this accommodation! There is also a TV, many books and a guitar, if you wish to spend time indoors. The house itself is quite extraordinary, with its access by a long staircase which leads you to an incredible building that stands out from the heights with its pretty colors. Donya is very friendly, and will give you good places to eat in Lyttelton. A 5-star stay for a ridiculous price ...

    Martine2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Donya has the most beautiful Airbnb we have seen for a long time. Too bad we just spent one night there... Our space had a stylish furnishing and consists of a private room with some couches and a TV. After climbing up a ladder, you arrive in a bedroom with an amazing view over the harbour. Unfortunately, the industrial harbour is a bit loud but that was not a problem for us.

    Julian2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Had a lovely comfortable stay at Donya while in Littleton. Impeccable view on the industrial harbour in a stylish little house shared our hosts. I hadn't realised some of our hosts were cats, but they were all quite friendly :) Donya also made room for us in the kitchen, which she was happy for us to use, a delight for travelers like me :))

    Marie2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • It's an awesome place to stay, along with beautiful views from the window. You can create amazing wallpapers by just taking photos during sunrise or sunset. The sleeping place looks artistic and is very isolated and quiet. Amenities are superb and, if you love cats, you won't feel lonely. If you want to spend a lazy day, you can read beautiful books, play the guitar or may simply enjoy a cup of coffee in the beautiful balcony.

    Muhammad2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Few places do you get to enjoy a stunning view and a sea breeze at such a reasonable price! It was a nice little getaway! I was able to read my book overlooking the marina, catch up on some of my Netflix shows through their Chromecast, and meditate with a cup of tea in their quaint backyard. 10:10 recommend.

    Elizabeth2020-02-24T00:00:00Z

    Tidy little studio unit with a private parking spot just outside, and a private entrance and garden. Situated in Lyttelton West overlooking the harbour. Walking distance from open space along the waterfront or up into the Port Hills. Close to the buzzing town of Lyttelton well known for its Saturday market, unique shops and high quality restaurants. Dogs on prior approval only. Please note the hoob/stove top is not operational - no cooking facilities. We do have coffee, tea, & milk.
    With prior arrangement we do accept very well behaved dogs, but please note we do not have a fully fenced garden and the dog may not be left alone in the room while you are out.
    Open space is readily accessible from our place if you done mind steep hills! The beach is 3 minutes drive away, and Akaroa Peninsula about and hour away - great for a day trip. We have a Kayak available for use on request so you can explore via the water. Alternatively you can walk down to the the port and catch the ferry to explore Quail Island or Diamond Harbour.
  • Cozy but if someone upstairs there’ll be very minor noise but still wonderful experience.

It was a real pleasure to finish my trip in New Zealand here, unwinding in a calm environment. Lovely meeting you Catherine and thanks for our nice talk in the garden!

    Renée2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Not 15 minutes out of the city centre but the Tin Kingfisher feels akin to Narnia. An absolutely surreal experience staying in the Valley. Thank you to Catherine for opening up her doors and giving the discerning traveller a picture perfect place to rest their heads.

    Maddy2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Gloria's place was ideally located for exploring Lyttelton. Just 5mins walk to London Street, where you'll find all the shops and eateries. Stylish space and touches. As other guests have mentioned, might be a little difficult to bring your luggage down the stairs, so we left ours upstairs, but no big deal. Quiet spot as well, ensuring a good rest!

    A wonderful, relaxing hideaway that is only 10mins drive into the city and 20mins from the airport. You can dive into the pool or relax in the spa taking in the beautiful views of the city and the Alps beyond. The studio has a small kitchen with a microwave and portable stove top but if you would like to eat out there are wonderful restaurants and bars only 2mins drive away. Fast wifi and a TV with Netflix and Sky Tv will make sure you are never bored.
    Although we are only 10mins from the city we are completely away from all the hustle and bustle. You can hear native birds in the forest next door and watch the ever changing views of the mountains
    There are many beautiful walks near our house and the adventure park with world class mountain biking and zip line is a few minutes drive away.
  • Can not fault this place, from the homey touches to amazing views you won't be disappointed. Highly recommend Dees place to stay of visiting Christchurch

    Jodie2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

    Tucked in at the base of the Port Hills, Tussock Hill Farm is situated on 35 acres of rolling pasture offering a superb rural escape while only 10 minutes drive from central Christchurch. The Tiny Tussock is nestled on the hill in the beautiful Avoca Valley. Located down a long drive, following the Avoca stream and native bush, this unique space provides privacy and tranquility. With cows and sheep roaming the paddocks, feel free to explore all that the farm has to offer.
    The Tiny Tussock is a well equipped and completely self-contained guesthouse which is off the grid and run by solar power. Enjoy the rustic deck and bbq area as well as a late night soak in the outdoor bath, under the stars. No oven available however, we have a gas cooktop, toaster, jug and BBQ. No WiFi.
    Perfectly located, the Tiny Tussock is close to many local amenities, cafes and eateries of Ferrymead, Sumner Village and Lyttelton. The Tannery is also within minutes, offering boutique shopping, restaurants and deluxe cinema. There are numerous outdoor activities within close proximity. We have many great walkways along the Port Hills, including the well known Rapaki track- which follows down the ridge and connects to the top of Tussock Hill Farm. The Port Hills are also renowned for their vast selection of mountain bike tracks, the adventure park being the ultimate playground. The number 28 bus is available on Port Hills road which takes you directly to and from the bus interchange in the central city. You may however, choose to go in the opposite direction which take you to the Lyttelton wharf. Stop off and enjoy the hustle and bustle of the port’s Sunday market or try out the numerous alternative eateries and bars. The popular Christchurch gondola is also located along this route. A must-do experience with spectacular views of the cityscape, Canterbury plains and the high peaks of the Southern Alps.
  • A great wee spot - you feel as though you’re in the middle of the country yet only 20 minutes from city.

    Maria2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • By far the best Airbnb we have stayed in. The tiny house is modern, clean and very comfortable. It is in a beautiful location on a farm but still very close to Christchurch central. Kate is a brilliant host & we will definitely stay again next time we are in Christchurch

    Dylan2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Kates place was clean, stylish and easy to find 👌🏼 We relaxed outside on the patio with wine and cheese looking over the farm and Christchurch Hills - perfect way to end our trip☀️ if your looking for accommodation I would highly recommend staying here - for travellers without a car there is a bus only 10 minutes walking from the gate so super easy to get to and from the farm. Also, if you have time definitely consider relaxing in the bathtub with a coffee or wine - perfect!

    Allison2020-03-03T00:00:00Z

  • Best accomodation on our entire NZ trip. We "only" had the pleasure to meet Barbara, but she sure was the perfect host. The house is beautifully located on a hill and relaxing in the hottub with a great view over the harbour while the sun is setting was just the best after long days of exploring. Thank you again and hopefully we'll be back at some point.

    Julian2020-03-07T00:00:00Z

  • This is way more than just a modern property, this is a lovely home on the edge of the interesting port town of Lyttleton. It has a great view of the bay and is under 10 minutes walk from the centre with it’s cool selection of shops and bars.

    Fran2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Therese’s place is lovely, clean and well equipped. We had a lovely experience staying there.

    Sarah2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • AMAZING! What a thoughtful host. We travelled with our two children and they loved it too.

    Jane2019-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • Therese's place is well appointed, is welcoming and presented in a very clean state. The house is within walking distance of the Saturday market, the new Lyttelton marina and is in a good location to visit the other side of the harbour by car or using the ferry. Plenty of walking tracks nearby for the more active. The view of a working port in action is a bonus.

    Sally2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • A real home from home, Therese's place has everything you need in a great location and we had a very comfortable stay.

    Sue2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful place to stay! Lovely view, easy walk to town, stunning scenery. Great!

    Sue2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Therese's place with plenty of space inside and out for us (2 adults, a toddler and a crawling baby). Very safe area, friendly neighbours, only 20ish minutes walk into Lyttelton and half an hour to Corsair bay. It was very useful to have access to the stroller, cot, highchair and baby bath too. Nice open plan living space with lovely views and beautiful bird song! Very easy and pleasant stay. Thank you.

  • We stayed for 4 nights at Tamsin's place in Sumner and absolutely loved it! It's a great set-up in a really beautiful location. There were so many nice touches around the place and we loved meeting Beans the dog! Sumner itself is a gorgeous little town with lots to see and do nearby. I'm sure we'll be back. Thanks Tamsin (and Jenny) for being great hosts and for all your tips too!

    Caroline2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

    Wendy2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great place to stay. The location is awesome, just a couple of blocks from the ocean. We stayed one night and used the bbq and slept. It had everything we needed. Beans the dog was an added bonus for us as well, very friendly. Overall a great place!

    Oliver2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic wee spot with thoughtful touches so close to the beach. Beans the vizsla is a delight!

    Laura2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Tamsin's space is exactly as described. I highly recommend the stay for anyone heading to the Sumner area. Location doesn't get much better, my partner and I enjoyed the quick walk to the beach and on to the restaurants and shops. Top notch bed and bedding, wonderful hot shower and thoughtful additions when it came to soaps, lotions, etc. Beans the Visla is an absolute gem and it made my day to have a playful pup around.

  • The landlord was super super nice and brought us milk, chocolate and a new trash bag for the first time. In the app, you have to answer questions and reply super fast. The room was very clean and tidy. If you are cooking, please be sure to only have pans and no wok. In addition, there is a smoke alarm above the head. Be sure to turn on the range hood to the maximum to avoid the alarm. Geographic location If you use the urban area as the main travel location, it may not be superior, but the scenery is very good.

There are literally 10 places to get coffee within 80m. Supermarket, cafes and craft brewery are all super close. Liam was super helpful and met us for check in. He has kitted the place out perfectly; smart TV, dishwasher, washing machine all with eco soaps and cleaners. Great views of the port to boot!

    Unavailable for the near future (the tiny house is now somebody’s home), sorry!
    The tiny house is simple, rustic and relaxed. Take the time to enjoy being in nature, appreciate people's company without distractions, and unwind.
    Diamond Harbour is a great holiday destination. Come and enjoy our local beaches, walking tracks, Orton Bradley Park (including adventure playgrounds and mountain biking), rock climbing, kayaking, sailing and more!
  • This was a very special find. Loved the privacy and outlook. Loved the simplicity of the set up. Brilliant daytime view and night time star watching from bed. Amenities simple but everything we needed.

    Jayne2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing views, great value for money. Spectacular space.

    Scott2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

    Lily2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • The space is well laid out and has beautiful views. The outdoor shower bath is especially peaceful! Would highly recommend​ staying.

  • This tiny house is the perfect getaway. It's so close to Christchurch but feels like you are a hundred miles away. The house had everything you needed and the bath under the stars was a highlight. Wish we had stayed more than one night!

    Mary2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • A rustic, off the grid, Banks Peninsular experience. Delightfully situated in a private setting, while the Diamond Harbor ferry is only a few minutes drive and a great alternative to access the Port and city. Plenty of local walks to keep one entertained. Outstanding views

    Rebecca2020-02-07T00:00:00Z

  • I would give this place 4 billion stars if it were an option. Such a wonderful place and wonderful host xx

    Hannah2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • If you are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to book this place, do not hesitate! Get in quick while you can, you will not regret it. I feel like whatever I write here will not do my stay with Coral justice - I cannot speak highly enough of her hosting abilities and her absolutely beautiful home. Everyone was thought of and was just perfect. Incredible evening snack platters with homemade treats, local fruits and sleepy tea. Then the breakfast platter is what you might expect from a luxury hotel. I wish I could have had more time to spend there and take a yoga class with her. I look forward to my next visit.

    Amy2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We were left a little speechless when it came to Coral's home, hospitality and presentation. Having stayed in many AirBnbs in several countries, this was undoubtedly the best service we have ever received in an AirBnb and the best value for money too! The platters she provided for us (which included specific dietary requirements at short notice) were absolutely beautiful. Coral was super easy to talk to, had some interesting stories, helpful local tips and had thought of everything you may have forgotten on your trip. The house rabbit was another bonus! Unparalleled attention to detail. We will most certainly be returning for a yoga session in her studio when we can. Do not hesitate to book!

    Daniel2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Coral was amazingly accomodating and has a wonderful space. Would highly recommend.

    Brittany2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • A great experience.

    Kiri2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, wow, wow!! Amazing stay. Do not look ANY further for accommodation! Book immediately as you will you will be blown away with the view, the hospitality, the amenities, the small touches and especially the style!

    Kalisi2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Arrived in Lyttelton in the afternoon and was amazed at how beautiful this port town was. Greeted by Coral we were shown around the charming house, filled with stunning art and magnificent views. The studio looks straight out of Home Beautiful magazine and the bed was super comfortable. Coral was an amazing host and it was great to share a cheese platter with her out in the courtyard among the fresh growing veggies, complete with the amazing view. Highly recommend this stay and wish we had more than one night.

    Katherine2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at The Pocket Farm Yoga Studio and Airbnb was awesome. Coral is lots of fun and really passionate about her garden and teaching yoga; she also makes an excellent flat white, which was a real bonus because at her recommendation we got up pretty early and did a SUP yoga class with another yoga teacher in a local bay which was really cool. After checking out a great nearby spot for dinner I made use of her salt water spa pool; there are really great views of the stars, garden and the harbour from in there. Other things that were good were the water pressure - a good shower is always a bonus; the super comfy bed and the fact my room came with a yoga mat, bolsters and other yoga stuff to use if wanted. I also really liked that Corals place is all about the garden to table way of life, so she made food for us using greens from her gardens and even explained that the honey on our pre SUP crumpets was from the hives at her dads retirement village. I would definitely come back here and I recommend that others do the same.

    This is a town full of character. Our house is warm and inviting with great views over the the harbour. And...peaceful. Female guests only thank you.
    Warm and friendly....living in a place with soul....Our house overlooks the harbour of Lyttelton, which is a great place to live and relax. The views, the air, the people, all have a good vibe. People say hello here. Its not far from Christchurch, but, in other ways, its far away. Peaceful....and relaxed. Come Saturday however, the market absolutely buzzes. Cafes and bars along the main street. Beaches, and great walks, all make lyttelton, and our house, a lovely place to stopover. Just 20 mins from Christchurch CBD.
  • Great hosts, great location.

    Andrew2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Donna's place is a wonderful spot to stay in Lyttleton. She is a most gracious host. Warm, friendly, full of information, and will do anything she can to help. She made my stay delightful and much easier than it would have been somewhere else. My downstairs room had a beautiful view of the harbor. Everything was clean and well equipped. Donna knows everything about the town so questions get answers. The surroundings of her lovely home are full of flowers. There is a wonderful deck in the backyard with a nice view and comfortable place to eat. Visitors could not ask for more!

    Marcia E2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Donna is the most caring and loving host I have ever met. She made me feel at home straight away and made sure I am comfortable in any aspect. one of my best airbnb experiences and definitely the best bedrom view!

    Sylvia2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • I loved staying at Donna's place. She made me feel very welcomed and went beyond my expectations by making it all super comfy and sharing everything from the heart. The view out of 'my' beautiful bedroom was just mind-blowing, the sunny terrace a great spot to enjoy a cuppa and the living kitchen area warm and cosy to just feel at home. Donna's nurturing aspect is what I needed. I felt very much 'at home'.

    Michèle2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Donna is a wonderful host! I felt right at home from the moment I walked through the door - she genuinely enjoys meeting people and sharing her home, and is equally respectful of personal space. The room is large with a big lovely comfy bed, and great views over the harbour. I'd definitely stay here again!

    Kate2019-12-01T00:00:00Z

Thank you Maria and family for your kindness, thoughtfulness, and the little touches. We want to come back already. I think we shall. The selection of reading material was diverse and relative, access and privacy excellent. Bed super comfy, Gary thought so too, facilities modern, sparkling clean.

TIP: the gondola and city tram tour $50 together is a great way to max a short stay. ) Lovely private room, with all you need for a short stay and a genial host. What’s not to love?

    Séamus2020-02-15T00:00:00Z

  • Maria’s spare room is lovely! The house is located on a stunning mountain with gorgeous views. The room was really private and separate from the rest of the house with an en-suite bathroom and was really quite spacious! The bed was super comfy and large. Maria was a very thoughtful and kind host - greeted us on arrival, showed us around and was in touch regularly. She left out some breakfast essentials like toast and cornflakes and milk, which was super kind! Overall we really enjoyed our brief 2 night stay at Maria’s as a stop off on our month long kiwi road trip and would highly recommend!

    The house is 10 minutes from the beach, 10 minutes from central Christchurch, and has a lovely park right next door. Located at the end of a dead end road, you can expect peaceful sleep, and a relaxing space in our sunny back garden that includes a barbecue. There is a very clean, sweet, and well trained dog living here, but he's not allowed in the guest room. The house is brother and sister friendly as well :)
  • Thank you so much Adrianna for your (and Joker’s!) hospitality. Your place was perfect and we really enjoyed our stay in Christhurch.

    Alexa2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Adrianna's and Simon's house is very clean and tidy. Our bed was comfy and the room was beautifully furnished. The kitchen was well equipped and the bathroom was clean like the rest of the house. The hosts gave us a lot of room and we had a great time with their dog Joker. All in all we can recommend this place.

    Jan-Miklas2020-02-27T00:00:00Z

  • Top of our list - this airbnb is excellent value for money! A lovely spacious apartment, just as described. The sloping floor is unusual, but doesn't cause any problems. Good info about the area is provided in the apartment. Easy to reach with the number 17 bus. The drive is very steep! however there is plenty of space to park on the road.

  • We stayed 3 nights. The communication was great and Ailsa very helpful. Would stay at her place again, even though with public transport it's a bit pricey (however there's a bus going directly into the city centre)

    Malena2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay in Ailsa's little apartment !! Little "welcome clara" attention I recommend 100%

    Self-contained little guesthouse at the bottom of a charming garden in a private setting. We are situated in Heathcote Valley close to the Gondola and Lyttelton. 15 to 20 minutes drive to beach and central city. 2 minutes walk to bus stop. Ideal for 2 people, but could accommodate 1 extra person on sofa bed. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate, milk and sugar provided. Washing machine available in main house, first load free. Subsequent loads $2 per load.
    The guesthouse is private and situated in the back of the garden with views onto the Port Hills. The garden is shared with the front house. The guesthouse is newly insulated. It has a comfortable queen-size bed and a separate living and kitchen area. There is a heated towel rail in the bathroom. Plenty of shelving and cupboard space too, and towels are provided. Two heaters provide a cozy and warm place. The little kitchen has a 2 burner stove-top, microwave, fridge, kettle and toaster plus pots, pans, cuttlery and crockery - everything you need to cook a yummy meal.
    Heathcote is a small community nestled into the Port Hills with a very family friendly neighbourhood and beautiful views onto the Port Hills. The Gondola is situated in this valley and there are many beautiful walks right on our doorstep. The street we live in is quiet and parking is available outside the house. The neighbourhood friendly and historic Heathcote Valley Pub including restaurant is within walking distance, and the Upshot Cafe is a 5 minute walk away next door to the local riding school. Other restaurants, shops and supermarkets are a 10 minutes drive away by car.
  • Very friendly & caring hosts. Nice location. I really liked the garden. The appartement had everything you need. Very strong wifi. We had a great stay.

  • My friend and I, stayed in Gaby, and Allan's wonderful little cottage, for 2 weeks in January 2020. We were made to feel really welcome by these amazing people. The accommodation, is well above average, and there are alot of little personal touches, to make your stay very comfortable. The garden is spectacular, with shrubs and trees, along side fruit trees, and herbs, it is a pleasure to sit out in the sun, and just relax. The location for us was perfect, with extremely easy bus access, into Christchurch. I must mention Gabys beautiful home made bread, and Allan's amazing Marmalade, which went down a real treat. Absolute super Hosts, both warm caring people, and we are so lucky to have met them both.

  • Gaby&Allan are amazing hosts, I had a wonderful time there

  • Amazing place to stay, really nice and cosy house with a lovely garden. Would happily stay again.

    Elliott2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • When my girlfriend and I first booked to stay at gaby and Allan's air bnb we had been in contact, they asked for our flight details and assured us that they would pick us up and drive us to their air bnb. Once we arrived, there was homemade bread and jelly. Throughout our stay they were so welcoming and offering to drive us where we needed. Although the weather wasn't the best, Gabby had a homemade pot of hot soup waiting for us. I would strongly reccomend staying here, it had a great homely feeling!

    Adam2019-12-17T00:00:00Z

  • brilliant location to discover the surroundings of Christchurch. the cottage is private and is near the beautiful lake. Rosie and her husband know a lot about the area and are very hospitable. definitely recommended to spend your vacation here.

    Hielke2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Rosie’s Garden Cottage is gorgeous- all in shades of whites and grey- a nice sitting out area amongst the flowers & lemon tree which makes the whole place so much bigger . Everything you need is supplied except shower gel and shampoo . Beautiful views of the sea it is right there at the window. Very quiet . We loved it and we recommend supper about Governors Bay Hotel which is a heritage building but nice and informal inside - about 4 minutes walk . It’s only 20 minutes to Christchurch but you feel miles away from the city. Also check her book that is there in bookshelf - Living with earthquakes it is a riveting & shocking read

    Audrey2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great spot to relax away from the hustle and bustle. Quaint accommodation in a nice spot tucked away . Governors Bay is a great kick off point to discover the Peninsula and only a quick trip to CHCH CBD.

    Andrew2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Rosie's place is perfect if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city for a few nights. The accommodation is surrounded by a beautiful garden, and every now and again you may get a visit from their chickens! I highly recommend that you have your own car so that you can explore Lyttelton and take the ferry over to Diamond Harbour and Quail Island. Thank you Rosie for being a wonderful host!

    Rosalie2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect charming cabin for two people--stay there if you can!

    Janet2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Rosie’s place is the perfect peaceful getaway. Even though it’s very close to some good swimming spots and nice walks, the garden itself is stunning and makes the whole atmosphere even more lovely. Highly recommend staying here for a relaxing weekend!

    Cassidy2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely cottage with amazing views and a magical garden! Sitting on the veranda while you hear all the birds is so peaceful. We also enjoyed the short walk to the beach. Rosie is a lovely host, I got a deep insight on the situation after the earthquakes from her. Thank you so much for this and the wonderful time at your place! By the way: great comfy bed, wonderful hot shower, fast wifi... perfect place to be...

    A private self contained studio apartment, with separate access & patio, on the lower slopes of Clifton Hill overlooking Sumner beach. Only about a 5 minute walk down to the beach & Sumner Village. Compact, sunny & well appointed, with a kitchen, fridge, microwave, heat pump, TV, WiFi, movies & a comfortable bed with electric blankets. Coffee & tea facilities are provided. Also comes with a dedicated studio parking space. Perfect for singles or couples.
    Attached to the side of this award winning Middle Eastern designed house (based on a Yemeni design) the studio has everything you will need for a great stay .... a private entrance, with a garden patio area for you to enjoy the afternoon sun & some sea views down to the mouth of the estuary. A comfortable double bed, with good linen & electric blankets to keep you warm in the colder months. A compact bathroom with a toilet, shower and heated towel rail.

    My place is very private and peaceful and you rarely hear the sounds of cars .... just the gentle sound of the sea. I share a long driveway with 3 other houses & there is a dedicated parking space for my guests up the driveway directly outside the studio. Sumner and the next beach over, Taylor's Mistake (a beach well worth visiting) are known for their surfing, beach walks & walking tracks. Sumner Village is compact & relaxed and there are some great cafes and well priced restaurant options to choose from. The local Hollywood picture theater sits in the heart of Sumner & is worth a visit. Surf hire is available from the local surf shop Stoked and surf lessons are available on Sumner beach
  • A wonderful place with water views and the sounds of the ocean. The bed is very comfortable. There are alot of windows so the unit is very light and inviting. It is reached by a steep zig-zag road and has a tight parking space so a small car is best. We would definitely stay here again even though it is 20 minutes or so into Christchurch.

    Kim2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Very private space with view of ocean. Spacious living room. Host is very friendly and can do a laundry load if asked. Location is right above Sumner Beach about 20 mins from Christchurch city center.

    Triet2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Amazing view and Chris was great and very helpful and always returned messages right away and was easy to approach and always willing to tell you what to see and where to go and the good places to eat. Highly recommend

    Clayton2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • A truly amazing place to stay. Stylish, well equipped, amazing views and super quiet and comfortable. It was spotless and we would definitely return here.

    Susan2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Perched up on the cliff side this is the perfect spot to catch the sunrise. Comfortable inside and out and just 5 mins from the wonderful village of Sumner and all its amenities. Chris has provided lots of info on things to do , walks etc and is an excellent host

    Nancy2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Just what you need for a comfortable, quiet, scenic stay close to the beach in Sumner. Close to shops, cafes and lovely walking trails.

    Lori2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Chris’ spot was amazing! It’s a great view and cozy apartment. Chris himself was so helpful and gave us great tips for local dining, hikes, etc. We would absolutely stay again!

    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.
    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.
    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.
  • The Hut is such a wonderful place to get away. Check in was a breeze and the space is beautiful. The view is absolutely fabulous and worth the walk. We were relying on public transport during our visit and it was pretty easy to get around and into the city. We definitely would recommend!

    Michelle2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely amazing stay. Close to the city, yet tucked high away where you can just relax. Watch surfers, listen to waves crash on the beach, and take in the coastline views from high above the city in your own retreat amongst the cliffs. Wish I lived in Christchurch so I could stay here when I needed a reset.

    Jacob2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Really cool little get away. Best view and very peaceful.

    Harriet2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • A very cool place. The shower is unique, and the view is unbeatable. The location is a short 10-15 min walk to the beach/town. Cozy, clean, and comfortable. Would definitely stay again!

    Jonathan2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • The view was everything it could be and more! The hut was gorgeous inside and out. The outdoor facilities were well maintained & free of bugs. The space was quite private too. Would stay again!

    Benjamin2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • We loved this little cosy place with great view and very special outdoor bathroom. Perfect little getaway for a couple. Sumner is very nice place too!we recomend to try utopia icecream and the wood fire pizza ;)

    Petra2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • A very characteristic cottage on the mountainside. To find it requires walking. The car was parked beside the road by the sea. You can park for free, and then start climbing at the first intersection after you turn. Remember to be the first intersection after you turn. Only walk to the mountainside. So bring as little as possible. After walking through a few S-shaped roads, you can see on the left hand side that there is a small white door with the number 5 on the doorway. The one on the right hand side is not far after entering. The house is small but complete. Suitable for young couples, you can watch the sunrise and sunset. There were sounds of waves at night. You can sit at the window and look at the ocean view and have a glass of red wine. The bathroom is more interesting. The natural bathroom was blocked by a large stone. The balcony can be barbecued. The room may be a little stuffy in summer. But you can open the door. There are few mosquitoes in South Island, so the problem is not serious. There are several paintings in the room, and the landlord should have a studio. I don't know if the landlord is an artist.

  • The Hut was our favourite Airbnb in NZ. The location and beach views were incredible (after nearly having a coronary dragging our suitcases after a totally bonkers zig zag path... hot tip, pack light if you book, and you definitely should). We were charmed by the weatherboard exterior built into a cliff, cosy interior with everything we needed (good wifi, a comfortable bed, lots of natural light, real ground coffee and plunger) and the curious labradoodle who appeared several times during our stay. Highlights: the breezy bathroom which is partially built from the cliff face, hearing and smelling the ocean, watching the surfers over dinner and seeing the seagulls fly past the window while lying down. The Hut is a must for beach lovers. Just be prepared for the walk up to it.
