Home Away from Home

Wonderful find on our part--wish we had found it on previous long stays in Christchurch. No car needed if you are willing to walk 10 minutes to a supermarket/shopping centre. We stayed five weeks using the bus system which stops a two-minute walk away. The cottage offered plenty of space--we really enjoyed the advantage of a barbecue and a refrigerator containing Jenny's homemade preserves. Lots of room inside and outside where you can chase the sun or shade depending on the time of day. Everything was as advertised (or perhaps better) providing a perfect holiday location. We put it at the top of the list of places we have stayed!

Perfect location, very comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a very comfortable home from home stay at Red Door Cottage in March. The house could not have been more perfect for us. Travelling with 2 young children (4 & 2) for 4 months round NZ, it was a pleasure to be able to relax in a clean, tidy & comfortable house in a lovely suburb of Christchurch. We could cook our own meals at a time we wanted to in a very well stocked kitchen, relax in the sitting room and sleep in comfortable beds - even doing our washing (which after several weeks in a campervan was a real pleasure! It's amazing what you miss when you're not at home!)

Location wise, it was an easy drive to shops and supermarkets and also into the main part of town that you were able to access at the time and we enjoyed the Botanic Gardens amongst other areas. We were also picked up from the Cottage for a small tour to the Akaroa and Banks Peninsula which was great fun.

Jenny was very easy to deal with over email from the UK and accommodated any requests we had for our youngest child very happily. Would definitely recommend to friends and would love to stay again if we are lucky enough to come back to Christchurch soon. It's a wonderful town - don't miss out on it!

Tranquil stay at red Door Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have just returned home to England after spending a wonderful 2+ weeks staying at Red Door Cottage. The accommodation was spacious, very well furnished to a high standard and very clean. Everything was catered for including every item of kitchen equipment that could possibly be needed. A big modern television with Sky. Heat pumps in the main lounge and bedroom if required.
Outside the cottage is bordered by a delightful private garden, where we were able to sit on many occasions in the lovely weather. The owners had thoughtfully provided breakfast food for the first couple of days which was very useful after a long journey. Being Easter they had even left us some Easter eggs a lovely touch. The cottage is in a quiet lane but a few yards away one could walk to the main road and then to Merivale village which has a large modern mall and Supermarket catering for all needs.
We will be back in New Zealand again to visit family and hopefully we shall not be staying anywhere else but Red Door Cottage if available.

Spendid!!!

  • 5 of 5
This nicely decorated, very clean cottage was perfect for our brief visit to Christchurch! The listing was accurate and everything was in working order. We especially appreciated the food items as we did not have a car and not knowing the area very well, we didnt have to worry. It's location to Christchurch was great, just a little over a kilometer away, easily walkable. We would definitely stay here again!

Red Door Cottage

  • 5 of 5
The Red Door Cottage was ideally located for access into Christchurch. The bus ran from the end of the street and it was an easy trip into the city. The cottage was very comfortable and catered for everything you needed. It was very clean and well maintained. A place you could completely relax in at the end of a day. We would highly recommend this cottage as a place to stay in Christchurch.

We stayed at the Red Door in December 2010. This cottage gives you every thing you need. Pamper yourselves and book it now.
Red Door is tastefully decorated, well equipped and the art work is great. It is situated within walking distance from the City centre (we are walkers, did the coast to coast whilst in Auckland on this trip), and shops, wine bars and restaurants, at the Merivale centre.
It’s quiet and rather exclusive.
If were not for the 11749 miles, that my wife and would have to travel to get to it, we would be back next week!
If you do book it, don’t tell every one, we want to book it for a long term rent in two or three years time, God willing.
