Thank you everyone for your comments. We appreciate your feedback.
The cottage is in a fantastic location. Nicely presented and the hosts are very helpful. This was our second stay and we will definitely be back when we are in Christchurch again.
I stayed here a few weeks ago and it was just as good this time. Highly recommended for its close proximity to the CBD, AND a great night's sleep.
Clean, comfortable, close to town, private, off-street parking, internet - everything we needed for an enjoyable stay in Christchurch. Thank you Elaine and David for sharing your beautiful property!
If you're travelling by yourself (as I do for work) this is perfect; it's very cosy but has a good sized kitchen and being able to park off-street right outside the door is a plus. A great location to base yourself and there are some outstanding dining options just up the road.
The accommodation was perfect for my short stay in Christchurch. It was wonderfully located, with everything needed for a very comfortable stay. Would highly recommend!

Fabulous wee cottage. Nice and warm. Elaine communicated quickly and was helpful arranging a last minute booking. Thoughtfully provided an umbrella for the rain. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again or to recommend.
This is a very cozy cottage with a great shower and a comfortable bed. Cooking facilities were very good as well and our hosts really made us feel at home. They even booked a ride for us through Uber when we had trouble with our cell phone. We highly recommend this abode.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Elaine’s place after a long flight. The cottage was beautiful, quiet, clean and comfortable. We loved being able to walk to restaurants and the grocery store. We only wish we could have stayed longer!
The small cottage has everything you need for staying over in Christchurch. 15-20 minute walk to the CBD. Perfect for self catering travellers. Comfortable bed and quiet neighborhood. We have stayed in much larger places that didn't have a full kitchen or a washer. Elaine is very accommodating, she even picked us up from the train station and then gave us a short tour of some of the red zones during our stay. Great place to stay!
Great location for visiting Christchurch and surrounding area. Close to the Botanic Gardens and museum and easy access to much more. Hosts are welcoming and thoughtful. Great to have a parking space right out your door! And to have a washer and clothesline handy. Worked perfect! A very beautifully designed space with views of the garden on two sides. Walking distance to restaurants, grocery, pharmacy, and shopping. Would stay there again if we returned.
We adored this cosy little cottage. Easy communication and check-in, great location - quiet for being so close (walkable) to city and cafe/eating options. Cottage brilliantly designed and decorated in a fresh, well-equipped style while retaining the heritage feel. Despite its humble size, felt surprisingly spacious, perfect for the 2 of us. Best bed (comfort and linens) of our NZ stays. Would be my 'go to' anytime I revisit Christchurch and is now one of my favourites, worldwide! Thanks Elaine, also, lovely to meet you.
This is a perfect tiny house. Fully equipped kitchen, private bathroom, TV, even a washer. You can walk downtown in about 20 minutes or take the bus which runs frequently up a main street Papanui Road. Tastefully decorated, surrounded by flowers, Elaine's cottage is terrific. We enjoyed our stay in this lovely place. There are several nice restaurants close by. We ate at a Thai place just down the street which was good. Elaine provides coffee and tea, we picked up some scones at a nearby cafe. Vic's Cafe near Bealey Avenue has great morning breads and pastries.
The house was very comfortable and well located. Elaine was an incredibly helpful host. She replied promptly to all enquiries and even went out of her way to post something to Australia that we left behind.
What a fantastic spot! Easy to walk to restaurants and the grocery store. The house is just what a couple needs and is so tastefully decorated. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
Melrose cottage was perfection. Fully equipped with everything you could need as a traveler (including a washer/dryer!), the cottage is beautifully situated and elegantly outfitted. Elaine and her husband were kind and responsive hosts- we couldn't have asked for better!
