PRIVATE & TRANQUIL - 200% CHARMING, IN CHRISTCHURCH NEW ZEALAND

Christchurch City Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Queen Bedroom, Single Foldup Bed [use in Lounge], Ensuite Bathroom, Sleeps 3

Located in Christchurch City, Valley View Cottage offers peaceful, relaxing accommodation.

A cosy little house with all the comforts of home - stylish decor and completely self-contained, it's a piece of paradise away from the chaos of life...

Set in its own private garden, it's a secluded and peaceful getaway. The cottage is tucked away on the lower slopes of the Port Hills in the St.Martins Valley, with views to the City and Valley. Valley View's 10 minutes from the city centre, shops and restaurants - close enough to town to be convenient but far enough away to be relaxing. There's a supermarket and cafe nearby, and the cottage has allocated, off-street parking. The sunny front verandah leads to a BBQ courtyard with BBQ and outdoor furniture.

Valley View is cosy, warm and welcoming - exclusively yours for the duration of your stay.

Suitability:
  • pets not allowed
  • non smoking only
  • unsuitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
Guestbook comments from the owner
Absolutely fabulous home, beautifully presented and stocked way beyond our

but WOW we will remember and recommend. Thank you!

This lovely cottage is once again available for guests to enjoy, having had a makeover and repairs to minor damage sustained

in the 2010 Earthquakes in Christchurch. Until six years ago, we lived beside it but retained ownership of this enchanting little property when we sold our family home and moved to another part of the city.

The St.Martins Valley is a wonderful spot to live and the best thing is, although it's only 10 minutes away from the city, the surroundings are semi-rural, very peaceful and private. You'll hear much birdsong in the trees surrounding the house, a great place to relax and unwind.

Extremely comfortable and welcoming

  • 5 of 5
Stayed 4 nights 01-05/11/10. An extremely comfortable, welcoming, clean, well furnished home just some 25 mins from the airport. Quite spacious with everything you could need for a great stay – in particular the home has not been stripped of everything useful and wonderfully there is an array of condiments, foodstuffs, normal household items like clingfilm, scissors, washing basket, clothes pegs etc. Bed linen is good, as are towels, bed comfortable and all the equipment worked. A nice view from the bedroom and lounge over to Christchurch. We could not fault anything in the home and unhesitatingly would recommend it. There is a New World supermarket and tiny shopping mall just 5 mins drive away (in fact, we walked it for some shopping and it took about 15 mins to get there on foot).

Owner's Response: Sue, we're delighted you enjoyed your time at Valley View and that you found it to be a place you could recommend. Thanks for leaving the cottage in wonderful order on your departure, and any time you'd like to return you would be most welcome.

Welcoming stay from USA

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I made this our first stop after many long hours of travel. Perfect, comfortable place to rest up and get ready for our 3 week stay. Very clean and quaint, all sorts of special touches including breakfast food and fresh fruit for at least 2 days and close to the bus stop to take into town. It's so very quiet and peaceful and the ideal spot to begin our love affair with beautiful New Zealand!
