  • We had a great time at Joke’s. She is an amazing host! Couldn’t wish for anything else during our stay. It is great spot with beautiful views over the harbour and Joke’s colorful garden. Lots of walking tracks up the hill with even more stunning views. The cabin and outside kitchen are cute and tidy, everything you need.

  • Joke’s guesthouse was just lovely- clean and cozy with an amazing view of the bay and a lovely garden, and within walking distance of some lovely hiking trails (perfect for someone stuck in lockdown.) Joke was an amazingly considerate host, very helpful, but not intrusive. Would absolutely recommend this place! Easy to get to from Christchurch on the bus as well.

    Meg2020-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • Joke's little cabin was perfect for our stay..stunning views across the harbour, we really enjoyed sitting out on the deck. The semi outdoor kitchen was also a highlight..made it really feel like a vacation! Joke was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. I would definitely stay here again.

  • what a stunning location and great value for money:)

    Silke2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    David2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    Ying-Fan2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    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.
  • At Debbie's place, you feel at home within minutes. The family is most friendly and helpful in every respect which is even more important in times of the virus. The place is ideally located, close to town but quiet nevertheless. The house itself is one of those charming ones you just want to live in. So, if Lyttelton is your destination, then this is the place to stay by all means.

    Andreas2020-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • I had a great stay!

    Alexis2020-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Debbie, Dan and daughter were very pleasant and helpful. The old house was very clean and nicely furnished. The kitchen had all necessary facilities and my bed was very comfortable. The location was quiet and convenient for shops and buses to Christchurch. I really enjoyed my stay in Lyttelton.

    Archie2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Debbie and Dan are great hosts, and the place is cozy and clean. I strongly recommend this place to everyone!

    Zuosi2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    Lyttelton, Canterbury, New Zealand

    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.
  • Stunning place!

    Ruhan2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • 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

There are a total of 11 steps as you make your way along a brick path to the back garden.
    The Tin Kingfisher would be great for couples or a single who would enjoy a place to stop over for a good night's rest,and would be happy to eat at one of the many local restaurants. It would also suit backpackers who may want to explore Akoroa or as a stop over on their tour of the South Island.

  • This place makes you feel right at home, an intimate space in a green oasis that has been constructed and build with love and care. 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.

  • Fantastic spot great host have already recommended this place to other people

    Nick2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • 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!

    Abbey2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • 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

  • 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.

  • I definitely recommend the accommodation of Barbara and Rick. They are such kind and caring people for their hosts. Very welcoming. The view from the room is very nice, a comfortable bed, a bathroom with shower and bathtub and of course the jacuzzi with a magnificent view. Go there with your eyes closed

    Camille2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara and Ruck made us very welcome in a lovely house with a great view of Lyttelton harbour. They are located high on a steep hill on a steep site. We really enjoyed our stay; driving locally, easily into Christchrch and further to Akaroa.

    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!

    Anders & Cindy2019-09-21T00:00:00Z

    Mark2020-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • Fancy a quiet time out of the ‘big smoke’ (of Christchurch), Ian’s place is a perfect little base in a quaint small town with cafes, bookstores and gorgeous scenery and hikes! I loved exploring Lyttleton and being based at Ian’s quiet, cosy little place. It was such a pleasure to stay here - highly recommend!

    Britta2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Ian was an incredible host. I got to spend a little time with him and his partner, which was a great experience for me. They were both very warm and welcoming. The apartment was exactly what I was hoping to find in Lyttelton - it was plenty of space for my friend and me in the cozy apartment, it was quiet, and it was close to the downtown area. The internet was fast and there was a very nice espresso machine, which was a very enjoyable part of the morning. I would highly recommend staying here.

    Raychel2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • This place is absolutely fantastic! So close to the town centre for everything you may need. Ian is so quick at responding to messages and providing great local tips. The place was immaculate and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay (very much enjoyed the Nintendo Wii) was a nice wee touch. We will definitely be back!

    Lauren2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Ian's place was clean, lovely, very comfortable, private, well-equipped, and delightfully peaceful and quiet. There's plenty of natural light and a small porch to relax on. It's a ten minute walk down to town with great restaurants and shops and a little longer walking back up, but still very pleasant. The washing machine, off street parking, a real espresso maker, and strong wifi were all welcome. Check in/out was excellent. Although I didn't meet Ian he was readily available with tips for the area.

    Sandra2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Ian is a super friendly and helpful host with great accommodation! The apartment is beautifully decorated and spacious. The center of Lyttelton is only a few minutes away on foot and Christchurch can be reached in half an hour by car or bus. The price-performance ratio is right, highly recommended!

    Bennet2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous apartment, fully equipped kitchen, lovely bedroom, good shower, all immaculately presented with thoughtful extra touches. Great host available to answer any questions and offer advice re walks, restaurants etc but also gave us our privacy. Highly recommend.

    Edwina2020-02-20T00:00:00Z

  • Dan and Megan have a beautiful place, in a beautiful area of Christchurch. Cass Bay has stunning views wherever you look, and Dan and Megan’s place is no exemption to this! Massive bathroom with a shower and a bath, which we were very grateful for after not having had one for weeks, and towels provided were a nice touch. Also very handy to have a fridge and microwave so were able to eat during the start of the covid-19 lockdown! Highly recommend Dan and Megan’s for a scenic and homely stay away from the hustle and bustle of central Christchurch, but close enough to drive/use public transportation into the centre

    Harry2020-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at Dan & Megan’s place. They have obviously put a lot of care into the place and it shows ! The place is very new, cute and well suited for a short stay! Coffee, tea and a variety of breakfast options were provided which was adorable. The place was spotless and perfect for our stay! I would strongly recommend staying at Dan and Megan’s!

    Carol2020-03-23T00:00:00Z

    Olga2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • A clean and comfortable space in Cass Bay. Great location. Although no views from room, host offered to let us use their deck which was nice. King bed is actually two twin beds put together. Not the end of the world but should be noted. All in all, a nice place.

    Matt2020-03-05T00:00:00Z

    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.
  • Such a lovely place in Christchurch. Beautiful view and great facilities. I had a lot of fun here

    Nir2020-04-02T00:00:00Z
  • These Kiwis are unbelieveable!!! We Yanks arrived in Christchurch just as the Covid 19 Level 3 kicked in and Level 4 was forty-eight hours away. Although we had Dee's place booked for three days, she allowed us to check out early so we could book an earlier flight to Auckland. AND she mailed home a bunch of our stuff that we could not fit into our suitcases! Love these hosts. Now on to Dee's lovely place: It sits high over Christchurch so the views will take your breath away. As you walk up the stairway you immediately notice the beautiful swimming pool on the left and the hot tub on your right. As you enter, sunlight streams in and illuminates your room. The kitchen is very well equipped, so you will have no problem preparing meals. The bed is super comfortable and there is plenty of space in the bathroom. Everything is exceptionally clean. Even though a washing machine is not part of the Airbnb description, Dee allowed me to use her washer and dryer to be ready for our emergency exit from New Zealand. I I hope someday we will be ale to return and stay with Dee again--there's so much more we want to do in Christchurch. These are definitely five stars hosts at a five star place!

    Edward2020-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place to stay. Only a few minutes drive from town. Very comfortable and stylish.

    Lutz2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic views across the city. Quiet location with fabulous facilities. Great to have a refreshing dip in the pool after the long journey from Wellington and then warm up in the hot tub admiring those views. Definitely recommend this place, stylish and relaxing.

    Jane2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Dee's place is easy to locate. Is quiet. Dee's responded to most of the questions I asked almost instantly. Thank you super host.

    The room available has a comfortable king single bed and is suitable for a single guest. Guests have exclusive use of their own bathroom adjacent to the bedroom. Breakfast of cereal, bread, tea, coffee etc is available. This accommodation is particularly suitable for a quiet guest who is happy to interact with a local host.
    My home is a beautiful wooden villa, well decorated and warm. The house is a 35 minute walk from the city. Buses to the city leave from a stop 100 metres away. The room is freshly decorated and has a desk and chair and a set of drawers and clothes hangers. There is a heater and plenty of spare blankets.
    Richmond is handy to the CBD. It is a safe and family friendly area. There is a convenience store and a takeaway close by and a supermarket 3 minutes' drive away. Several restaurants, Persian, Indian, Thai, Chinese, are within easy walking distance.
  • I highly recommend staying with Peter as he is an amazing host with his newly renovated place which is beautiful and had all everything you need to have a wonderful stay. Awesome conversations, clean tidy place, helpful host. Sometimes you might even hear his wonderful tunes from him playing the piano! Definitely an ideal airbnb place to stay!

    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.
  • This place is amazing! Waking up to the view over the harbour is beautiful and Littleton is a really cute village. The place is spacious, bright, clean, everything you want from an Airbnb. Rachel and Brian where the perfect hosts and went above and beyond looking after us. We stayed here for quite a while and they were always checking in to see how we were doing. I can't rate this place highly enough. Easily our best stay in New Zealand!

    Private and Botanical Sanctuary with harbour views. Private entrance, bathroom and living area. Nestled in the hills of Lyttelton, the charming port town of Christchurch. 10min walk to local main street shops and 15min drive to central city Christchurch.
    Your light, bright room is private - with your own entrance way, living area, bathroom and patio. The bedroom has a very comfy queen sized bed and the living area has room for an air mattress which can be provided upon request. The lounge and kitchen is available and are open plan, warm and sunny. These area open to an upstairs balcony for more views of the harbour. The laundry is available in your private area.
    Lyttelton, the Seattle of the South - will uphold it's promise ofquirky, yet delicious cafes, like Lyttelton Coffee Co-op and the Shroom Room. By night, there's some fantastic bars with cocktails at Civil and Naval, a brewery stop at Eruption Brewing, or possibly a live show at Wunderbar and a mingle with the locals. You'll find that you won't need to leave the Port with bush walks around the bays that will show you a view to make your friends jealous, and not to forget some of the best bays to swim, sunbathe, picnic and relax. Lyttelton is Christchurch's secret sweet spot, a hidden treasure of history and artistic culture.
  • Lyttleton is a really interesting place and we ended up there by chance. My advice now is that this town should be on everyone's list. Try to make it on a Market day - the food is amazing! This airbnb is up in the Port hills - quite a location but I should say this means steep roads and steps. The rooms were very clean and tastefully decorated and the hosts are only to happy to share their home with guests. As I said - everybody should go!

    Angela2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely stay, easy check in. Good contact upfront. Only downside was that you could hear people walking around upstairs. But only until sleeping time, so was fine! Thanks Abby :) and sorry for the 10min late check out haha.

    Isabell2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • 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
  • We had a great stay at Abby's place in Lyttelton. Perfect for ending our trip in New Zealand. The location is perfect and Lyttelton and the surrounding bays such a nice area. The recommendations of the hosts were very useful!

  • 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)

    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
  • Donna is an exceptional host who accommodated us at the last minute and made us feel incredibly welcome. Her home is warm and inviting and she goes the extra mile to take care of her guests. Highly recommended.

  • 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.

We would be more than happy to stay again.

    Amy2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Although it was rather brief, I greatly enjoyed my stay at the 'Love Shack' last week. The little place is a wonderful spot with a wonderful view. I also wish to thank Rebecca and Graham for being so inclusive - one almost feels like being part of the family! They are also most knowledgable about the community, and Heathcote comes across as a true community. Perhaps this is more suited as a summer spot, still was most enjoyable. Highly recommend this spot.

    Christopher2019-06-23T00:00:00Z

  • Super cute little Love Shack! Very cool very private very welcoming. I would suggest taking mozzie spray though because there’s so much lush bush around the bugs love it too. Would def stay again.

    Marama2018-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • The Love Shack is a mini-Shangrila. A spare one, to be sure, a little wood shack on the hillside with stunning art. Check out the monkey on the boy's shoulder. It's just a smokin awesome place for adventurers and lovers (I was the former-- I went to kitesurf on the estuary). For the elderly or immobile, the irregular steps up to the Shack in the dark would prove tough. Inadvisable, I'd say. And lovers of luxury hotels should look elsewhere. But the place is just totally lovable if you're a nimble funster. Given how generous and sweet Rebecca and her family are, my only regret is that I had no time to get to know them better. Go to Annapurna or Everest Base Camp if you can; if you can't, drop by the Love Shack.

    Evan2017-12-18T00:00:00Z

The apartment is very spacious and was also absolutely clean. We really enjoyed the breakfast in the nearby Cafe 'Harbor House' with a view of the sea and we can only recommend it like Cathy's apartment.

  • We had an amazing stay at Marias home. As we live with other people 24/7 it was a really refreshing couple of weeks in our own private space. 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?

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!

    Christchurch, Canterbury, New Zealand

    This home was featured in Sunday Magazine, the national lifestyle/news magazine in New Zealand. Contemporary, urban space with a distinctive cabin feel and native New Zealand timber throughout. The 164 square meter house is nestled on a secluded back section at the end of a shared driveway. The beautiful Port Hills with the Bridle Path nature reserve are your “back yard.” Each room in the house has a stunning view of the Lyttelton Harbour and the Banks Peninsula beyond.
    You can spend hours relaxing and watching the ships bustling in cargo for the entire South Island or cruise liners dropping off tourists. The view is spectacular from the 24 square meter rooftop deck. There is an expansive, open floor plan on the ground level. Skylights throughout the main floor let in heaps of natural sunshine. Japanese sliding doors open up to the ground floor office. There is also a small mezannine gymnasium with a gym-quality treadmill and rowing machine if you want to keep fit indoors. There is central heating throughout the home, but also an antique wood burner if you would just like some added ambiance. The kitchen has modern, stainless steel appliances and all sorts of random kitchen gadgets if you wish to cook at home. There are 2.5 bathrooms/restrooms. Two downstairs and one upstairs. On the ground floor there is a restroom with a sink, toilet and walk-in shower just off the main bedroom. There is also another small restroom with only a toilet and sink. The upstairs restroom has toilet, sink and also a claw foot tub/shower for a bit of luxurious relaxation after a day exploring the area. The house sleeps four comfortably, but both twin beds upstairs have easy-pull out full-single size trundler beds, so the house can also accommodate six easily.
    Lyttelton is a wonderfully eclectic, artsy, harbour village of 3,000 people, which is just 15 minutes outside of downtown Christchurch. All of the neighbors are very kind and more than willing to help out if you need anything at all. A short 10-15 minute stroll down our hill brings you to the main street. Our local restaurant, Roots, has just won the 2015 Cuisine Award for the Best Restaurant in all of New Zealand. There is also the outstanding Freemans restaurant, an Indian restaurant, a sushi restaurant, an upmarket fish n' chip restaurant, several excellent bars (The Port Hole, Civil and Naval, and the Wunderbar), as well as a small, but well-stocked grocery store, an organic grocer, coffee shops, dairy, health centre, liquor store, library, bank, atm, chemist/pharmacy, magazine/book store, several gift shops and hair stylists/barber. On Saturday mornings, Lyttelton holds an excellent farmers market that brings people in from miles around. Lonely Planet included this farmers market as central to what makes the Banks Peninsula a worldwide "foodie" destination. The entire town of Lyttelton has been declared an official historic area by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust. This includes our former gaol, cemeteries, steep streets, 19th-century timber cottages and volcanic stone walls throughout the town. Much of these historic sites now need restoration or will have to be reconceptualized after the earthquake, but the core of what made Lyttelton so special still remains. There are many stunning hill walks that begin within close proximity to our house. You can also take a cruise around the harbour or a short boat ride out to Quail Island, kayak or walk around the stunning bays. Located on the South Island, our house also can serve as a home-base while you explore highlights of New Zealand, such as Christchurch, Akaroa, Kaikoura, Castle Hill/Arthur's Pass and further afield Queenstown, Wanaka, the Milford Sounds, Nelson and the Marlborough Sounds, Franz Joseph & Fox Glaciers, Stewart Island… In 2012, Lonely Planet listed Christchurch as one of New Zealand's most exciting cities (see link below). Just one year after that, Lonely Planet named Christchurch the 6th best city in the world to visit.

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • Sharon was so thoughtful during our lockdown stay. She did everything she could to make our enforced stay a lovely experience. She put extra cooking facilities in for us as it was going to be a 4 week stay and even sorted out getting us to the airport. She dropped food off when she went shopping and went above and beyond in checking every few days if we needed anything. Would highly recommend

  • We unfortunately had to cancel our stay because of Covid 19 but Sharon was amazing when we first changed the booking then had to cancel. We hope to stay at her place in the future
