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.

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

A Nest on Mount Pleasant is a great B&B stay in Christchurch. The house is very well appointed, clean and has everything that you need. There is plenty of space outside your room to relax, and the house surrounds are very peaceful and quiet. Delicious breakfast and excellent hospitality from your hosts score this B&B an 'excellent' rating.

A Nest is a very pleasant B&B in Christchurch. You have great views from up there and it is absolutely quiet in the night. Great hospitality we experienced. The B&B is a house for the guests and there is much space outside the sleeping room to use.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Nest is situated in one of Christchurch’s most loved hill suburbs, nestled in a garden of native bush with views from the living areas of our Estuary, Sea and Mountains (snow covered in the winter) beyond. Our bed and breakfast is a unique fully self-contained home, including full kitchen and laundry, yet with all the service and friendly, personal hospitality of any homestay. THIS IS THE PROMISE OF THE NEST. We live right next door and are there for you at all times. Breakfast, cooked and served at the "Nest" can last for hours, but can also be finished in 15 minutes if that is what you desire. So if you book with us you will be staying in a 3 bedroom home, and the maximum number of people you would be sharing the whole house with would be 1 other couple as we only use two bedrooms at any one time. Your enjoyment and happy memories of your holiday are important to us. If you have any special requests please just ask. We are very close to Christchurch’s best beaches with excellent cafes and restaurants, Lyttelton Harbour, The Gondola, a 9 hole Golf Course and driving range, plus hillside walks with breathtaking views to the Southern Alps. The Nest has TV, stereo, DVD and BBQ, plus Internet access including wireless. We have easy access garage parking for two cars. The neighbourhood is tranquil and safe. All this only 15 minutes drive from the centre of Christchurch. The Nest is built on three levels with extensive decking for maximum enjoyment of its hillside setting. There is a lot of inside and outside living space for total relaxation. There is a small library of NZ books for your reading enjoyment. Extensive use of natural timber adds to the ambiance of the Nest. We invite you to view some of the comments some of our more than 2200 guests have been kind enough to write in our guest book or check our reviews on Tripadvisor. The Nest is also available for you as a Holiday Home rental, should you so desire. ... more   less
