Guesthouse in Christchurch
The Hut
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.

Cottage in Charteris Bay
Bayview - Charteris Bay
AMAZING- . When the time is right, maybe a break away in a tranquil spot. Enjoy the views, the relaxing feel by the fire, or relaxing on the deck, just 35 mins from Christchurch centre and you are in sunny Charteris Bay. Amazing sea views, but so private. From the floor to ceiling double glazed windows in the living space you really can watch the tide flow in & out, situated above the Charteris Bay yacht club, the 180 deg view takes in Quail Island & surrounding bays.
