“Fabulous Property”

What a remarkable property for the four of us to call home during our Christchurch stay. Our only regret was not having longer to enjoy both the city and Brickledown. Jo had beautiful flowers and roses in the courtyard. The landscape of the property was pristine!

Brickledown was a perfect arrangement for the 4 of us. My husband and I were traveling with his sister and my aunt. The number of bedrooms and baths (as well as the size) was just what we needed. The quality of the mattresses, pillows, bedding and linens were excellent as were the bath towels. The kitchen was modern and well-appointed. The convenience of the newly installed wi-fi was greatly appreciated.

On the last evening of our stay, right at midnight, the earth started to rock and roll. By the time the initial quake had settled down some 2 minutes later we had experienced a 7.8 magnitude earthquake. Brickledown proved to be a sturdy bunker to ride out the initial earthquake and the many, many after shocks. Jo was so kind to check on us and to make several calls on our behalf to see if our scheduled flight out of Christchurch was still a go.

Seeing the resilience of Christchurch in the midst of the tragic 2011 earthquake was amazing. As we had toured the city on the first day of our visit we saw a city and her people that were moving forward with their lives while never forgetting the ones that perished. Christchurch you stole our hearts and we're looking forward to another visit.

We loved our stay at Brickl!edown in Christchurch. The location was great and easy to find. The home was awesome! Beautifully furnished, immaculately clean and had everything we could possibly need. Thank you so much for opening your home to us! I wish we could have stayed longer!

Centrally located, beautifully appointed house that felt like home. If I was to ever visit Christchurch again this would be the place that I would stay

“Excellent House”
Reviewed March 30, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This homely house is a perfect place for a family stay away! Sleeping up to six people, the house/bungalow is very light and modern. The kitchen was very cleverly designed and guests have access to a washing machine and a dryer situated in a garage for the guests car. Unfortunately, the house does not have any WI-FI, this might bother teenagers but not me! Apart from that, this house is perfect!

Friendly and helpful hosts.

6 out of 5 if it were possible.
Thoroughly enjoyable!
