I booked the cavaran at the first and the fourth night in NZ. It is really valued as I can enjoy the prviate kitchen and bathroom with budgeted amount of money.

I stayed 2 nights. The place was cozy, clean, beautiful yards, fully stocked, friendly, close to shopping, restaurants, beach, library, and airport. Kim n Roel were awesome hosts, and picked me up from airport, and dropped me off at my next location. Their dog was so sweet, and enjoyable. I had an amazing visit, and time in Christchurch. Thank you!!

As i was driving from Queenstown i arrived after 10pm and i was met with a very friendly and helpful host. Even though the guests usually have shower here before 9pm and after 8am, Kim was...

First day at Christchurch and was welcomed by a pleasant gentleman by name Kim. The rooms was so ultra clean and furnished with taste. Felt at home. I would highly recommend this place. It is conveniently located close to the airport and there are good options for dining nearby

We booked for 1 night here not really expecting anything fancy but we were shocked. The room was big you could have 4 people sleeping in the room as a whole so for two people it was big. The bed was really comfy and the décor was lovely. Even having a walk in wardrobe that would of been perfect for...

Stayed in the caravan for a night, Kim was really helpful. I was impressed by how compact the room was with different labels and guides. Close to the pier and stay was comfy! Only comment is the bulldozers along the street causing a bit of noise in the afternoon. Thanks Kim!

We booked Purple-der House because of its proximity to the airport, as we had an early morning flight. The location is therefore perfect for the airport, but it's not very close to anything else - unless one has a car. We were upgraded to a better room, so we ended up having a bathroom inside the room, which was a...

Clean, friendly, well equipped, convenient for New Brighton and it's cool quirky bars, loved it. Owner ver helpful room was amazing, liked New Brighton full of character. Purple Der guest house totally recommended. Also not too far out of town only 15 mins to get back into Christchurch so all in all a great place

This was a lovely haven for us in the suburb of New Brighton. We were greeted warmly by Kim the owner and allowed into our room early as it was already ready for us! This was great as we were tired and had been carrying heavy rucksacks - definitely appreciated. The rooms and facilities are excellently maintained all really clean...
