Fully self contained private unit. My place is close to Town centre, restaurants and dining, great views, parks, and just across the road from the pub.. You’ll love my place because of the kitchen, the fire place, the cosiness, the private laundry and bathroom and queen size bed and sofa bed.. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families up to four.Small dogs are fine.
“Awesome accommodations! The fireplace was perfect for the chilly night. I did suggest the host prevent the doggies from barking next to the door between the rental space and her personal home space. I was trying to talk with my family in the states on the phone (in the am here, pm there) and they kept barking at the door so my family and I couldn’t hear one another. I had to keep moving around or try to talk more quietly. Otherwise - this was the perfect rental!”
**PLEASE ACKNOWLEDGE!** Between 1.6-10.6 we are unable to serve our famous "second breakfast". Instead you will receive a voucher for a lovely breakfast at a nearby café.** If you want to go on an adventure and seek to find a taste of the Shire, rest your hairy feet and hand-feed friendly sheep or alpacas, our little lifestyle farm is the right place for you. If you value food and cheer and song, please be our guest.
“If you ever find yourself traveling through Springfield, especially if you are fans of Lord of the Rings, you MUST stay at The Raven’s Nest. Izzy & Wayde are incredible hosts and have put such care and attention to detail into making the space so special. Wayde greeted us upon arrival with food to feed the animals, including the famously friendly, Elsa, their rescued sheep. We spent the rest of the evening enjoying the peace and quiet and even did some star gazing as the clouds passed. I do want to note - my husband is 6 ft 4 in tall (193cm) and he had no problem fitting inside the home, bathroom or the bed. In the morning, we were treated to an incredible breakfast of fresh pastries, jams, honey, fruit and freshly laid eggs from their chickens. It was the perfect way to start our morning - we didn’t want to leave! Thank you Izzy & Wayde for letting us share your incredible home with us.”
Located 45 mins from Beautiful Central Christchurch and 25 mins west of our International Airport. Only 4km off the great Alpine Highway 73 . This peaceful country setting offers stunning panoramic views towards the Southern Alps and is an on route stopover, whether you are heading to the West Coast via Arthurs Pass or the inland Scenic Route South to Tekapo and Central Otago.
“The perfect place! Gareon, a very hospitable hostess, keeps the house clean. We arrived very late and did not have time to meet and talk. But her notes on how and where to go, what to eat and where to get, were very nice. For breakfast, eggs, as we understand, the hostess holds chickens. Muesli milk toasts jam. For such money, this miracle is simple! Warm, comfortable, comfortable if you go to Tekapo. We arrived late at Christchurch and spent the night in this house with delight. Immensely grateful to the hostess.”
