While preparing our 6-week tour of NZ South Island, we had discovered this jewel and did want to stay there while in Christchurch. Now, that we have been there, we are more than happy of our choice. Away from the heavy traffic of the town centre, this very nice wooden house sits on Mount Pleasant. Our room was very large... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Katherine and Kai's place. The outdoor patio is great, and we ate most of our meals outside, overlooking the bush. We drove to Lyttelton, which is only 10 mins away, for a great dinner at the Fisherman's Wharf. We also went back on Saturday morning for the farmer's market and sailing on the Tug... More

We stayed there quite a while ago but didn't get to write the review. Hosts were very welcoming and friendly. Lit up the fireplace for us so that we wouldn't get cold when we return from our tour. We visited Christchurch twice before the quake and loved the place. When we returned this time, we were sad to see the... More

The owners, Kai and Kathryn, are superb hosts to a very large and comfortable holiday home. My family of 5 had more than ample room during our 4 day stay, and both Kathryn and Kai were very warm and kind and gave us tips on where to go to pick up groceries and other useful information. The inviting reception they... More

Lovey place which is near everything! Warm welcome from our lovely host Kai and Kathryn who offered to help us heat up the home if we were coming back late. This is the only place that would be fit for our second wedding anniversary and we are still here and loving every second of it. Close to kaikoura as well... More

Our family stayed a week. A lovely large multilevel home with plenty of room to spread out. Owners are warm and helpful. Our adult children, grandson and ourselves were all very happy with this home away from home. It will definitely be the first choice of accommodation when we come back to Christchurch.

Excellent rental, a home away from home. A large house over multiple levels allowed our family to spread out. Enough space for entertaining. Views of the entire city. Owners friendly but in no way intrusive. Stocked pantry a huge bonus. Great hi speed wifi.

The few days my husband and I spent at the Nest were made all the nicer by the kindness and gracious hospitality of its owners, Kathryn and Kai. After a long journey to Christchurch from Canada, we were met at the airport by Kai which was such a joy. The Nest is located on Mt. Pleasant and commands terrific views... More

The Nest is off the beaten track, but that's one of its assets. It's in a quiet neighborhood high in the hills above Christchurch. Bedrooms are small, but the common areas are spacious. There is plenty of room to stretch out. There is complimentary Wi-Fi and if you aren't packing a device, there is a PC for guest use. The... More
