  • Ann and Malcolm are the absolute best. You simply must book this place. An amazing retreat property. Watch glorious sunsets, frolick with the animals in green pastures, forage for nature's bounty, soak up the fresh air and sunshine, all while staying with friendly, laid back hosts with a great sense of humor. Close to many great spots near Arthur's pass. Thank you for giving us the retreat of a lifetime.

    Homebush Cottage is part of the 120 yr. old former Homebush School, located on the Southern Scenic Route and close to popular Skifields, Lakes and amazing tourist destinations, thus making us the perfect stopover. The cottage is set on 3 acres including beautiful rambling gardens and tennis court. The accommodation is decorated in a comfortable cottage style suitable for a couple. We provide a self catering breakfast including free range eggs from Orpington hens so no need to worry about food !!
    HOMBUSH SCHOOL COTTAGE is perfect for travellers, a cosy and warm stopover to relax before heading off on the INLAND SCIENIC ROUTE to the WEST COAST or South to WANAKA and QUEENSTOWN.
    WINTER TIME IS HERE !!! We are in very close proximity to 3 fantastic Ski fields !!!!!!! PORTERS HEIGHTS SKI FIELD 46 mins 52 Kms away MT HUTT SKI FIELD 1 hour, 52kms away CRAIGIEBURN SKI FIELD 1 hour, 68kms away If skiing isnt your thing then what about exploring: WASHPEN FALLS 25 kms 20 mins away described as 'a pocket of paradise where Moa once roamed' and offers a unique outdoor experience in a breathtaking natural setting. This fascinating walk starts at The Old Woolshed and takes you through an ancient Volcanic Canyon filled with lush Native Bush and wonderful birdlife (2 hours mod fitness loop track ) CASTLE HILL 51 km away 41 mins The grand limestone rock battlements of Kura Tawhiti led early European travellers to name the unique area CASTLE HILL. The track loops its way around magnificent limestone rock formations but the joy in the area is heading off the track and exploring at your own pace the natural cultural historic and recreational values.
  • Great accommodation with neat little extra touches. Very clean and tidy. We really enjoyed staying here.

    Louise2020-03-20T00:00:00Z

    If you want a luxury getaway in quiet rural surrounds then River Retreat is for you. A delicious continental breakfast tray is provided and a super comfy bed. You can eat out or make your own meals in the fully equipped kitchen. We have 10 acres next to the river and the Hororata golf course is just next door plus lovely views of the Malvern hills. We are next to Inland Scenic route 77 and the Rakaia and Waimak gorges are only a 15 minute drive away. And Ballooning only 5 minutes away.
    River Retreat accommodation is a barn that we built in 2013 and converted half into accommodation in which we lived in for a year whilst building our house. When we moved out we fully redecorated, recarpted and put in a log burner. It is completely separate from our house with its own garden and outdoor seating area. It is best suited for a couple but there is a sofa bed in the lounge with bedding provided which can sleep an extra 2. There is great cellphone coverage, free Wifi, Satellite TV including Sky sport, DVD's, board games and a library. You can sit outside on the patio and enjoy the views of the hills or if it is a cold day you can light the fire and enjoy the cosiness inside. We are pet friendly but please let us know beforehand as we have our animals and need to make sure they will all get along first. We have our own pets - 2 dogs, 2 cats and a horse Guests are welcome to walk around the property and there is access down to the Selwyn river. There are walks along the river or on the hill at the rear of our property. Allan and I are earthquake refugees from Christchurch who are happy to have found our haven out in Coalgate. We love it so are sure you will too. We enjoy meeting people from all over the world and sharing our bit of paradise.
    Coalgate is a small rural town in Canterbury close to skifields, golf courses and many other outdoor activities. With rambling hillside views and the Sewlyn river on our doorstep it is an ideal place to relax and unwind.
  • Margie and Allan are wonderful hosts. Their guest house is beautiful, cozy and clean. We enjoyed home made bread, museli, jams, butter, fresh milk and eggs from the farm for breakfast. Their property is beautiful, with a small creek running throught it. We enjoyed a nice evening walk there. Thank you for your hospitality.

    Chamila2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely quiet space with access to a spa pool. Lovely for a weekend away. Margie brought fresh bread and freshly laid eggs for the breakfast in the morning. Highly recommended

  • A rural and quiet environment with everything at hand.

    Thea2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • River Retreat is a real retreat tucked away in Coalgate, with an outlook of farm land and trees (and a horse). The place is stylish, cosy and had everything we needed. The freshly baked bread was such a warm welcome after a long drive over Arthur's Pass! Margie made everything easy for us too. And we slept so well in the bed.

    Angela2019-11-30T00:00:00Z

  • Amazing space, felt like home away from home! Very generous breakfast, amazing fresh eggs! Really enjoyed the rural setting and afternoon walks around the paddocks to see cows, sheep with lambs and very friendly goats. Walks in local area were great. Perfect location to walk and ski.

    Feel pampered and relaxed with the comforts of this brand new house. Enjoy the sun streaming in through the floor to ceiling windows. The property has open plan living with a large all in one lounge, dining and kitchen which opens up to your classic kiwi deck. Due to the close proximity to the Southern Alps, heating is important. The house has a fire place, heat pump and a heat transfer system which pushes warm air into all 3 bedrooms. The Master bedroom is equipped with an ensuite, the other two bedrooms are generous in size. Linen and towels are supplied.

Within close proximity are 2 conservation parks and is on the doorstep and an abundance of eateries, shops and services along the main street. Mount Hutt ski field (access road) is located 40 minutes from the house. Mt Hutt is one of NZ’s premier ski fields and has been rated NZ best ski field from 2015-19. There are other less commercial ski fields in the area such as Porters Heights, Mt Cheeseman and Mt Olympus ski fields. Recommended also if you would you like to try a taste of NZ. Drive 10mins to Sheffield and try a pie from the World Famous Sheffield Pie Shop. There is so much to explore from Alpine jet boating to canyoning with Big Rock Adventures.

    My place is close to family-friendly activities. You’ll love my place because of the views, the location, the outdoors space, the people, and the ambiance. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers & families. Well suited for all ages.
  • We spent a great night at Pamelas' and Robbie's. They were great hosts and we felt at home, with everything we needed and nice talks together. We recommend this quiet accomodation in the country.

    Emmanuelle2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Pamela and her fur baby pugs were delightful. We enjoyed a cooked breakfast with eggs from her hens in a chilled rural and cottage setting. The beds were really comfy too and reminded me of my childhood at gran's.

    Amanda2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • A kind host and a comfortable place to stay. Added interest if you like dogs, puppies and cats.

    David2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Pamela and her husband are the NICEST people. Honestly one of the best AirBnb’s I have stayed at in terms of hospitality. She has three lovely Pugs who are super friendly, and they even had a few puppies too! The beds are super comfortable, and Pamela truly makes you feel at home.

    Jax2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • We booked at the last minute because we were delayed on our journey towards Arthurs Pass, and were lucky to find a host as welcoming as Pamela. We were made to feel at home, were able to cook ourselves a meal, and get a great night’s sleep. Everything was perfect.

    James2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Pamela and Robert made us feel very much at home and provided for all our needs. We enjoyed staying with them and their lovely wellbehaved pugs.

    Noelle2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Pamela was such a lovely lady with such lovely pets. We were really welcome with open arms and she took great care of us. She went absolutely out of her way for us, offering us tea and breakfast. Thank you very much, we would definitely stay again. The place is modest and very comfortable and homely.

  • This will be a place you will want to spend time at. The decor is so charming and interesting. The garden surrounds the house and adds to the appeal. We also appreciated the cleanliness and how well appointed the kitchen was.

    Michael2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cottage, we loved our holiday there and we definitely will be back :-)

    Klara2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • A delightful comfortable cottage, beautifully furnished and in a very quiet location. Ideal for Christchurch, about 40 mins drive away, if you are using the airport or just wanted a place out of the city. Excellent communication with Rosemary the host.

    Bruce2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Tops: + perfect location to Christchurch and Canterbury region. + cottage has everything you will need. + style of cottage is charming + quite area at night + Rosemary is super fast in responding and check in and out is so easy. Very friendly communication. Downs: - water pressure especially under the shower needs a lot of nerves. - cottage gets cold easily - even with almost 20 degrees outside during the day. However firewood is provided as well as two eletric heater. - house lays directly on a street. Not much traffic though if cars or trucks are passing you feel and hear it in the house. - you will get a detailed message from Rosemary how to handle things around the cottage e.g. rubbish to take back with you or arrange something the the neighbor; to clean cottage yourself or the hint to the low water pressure - all not super big things but better to detail all the specs in the overview description of the cottage before booking.

    Norbert2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful quiet spot, nice garden. Wish we could have spent more time here!

    Shane2020-02-22T00:00:00Z

    Siobhan2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Booked as an overnight stop, on our way to Kaikoura, but would have happily stayed longer. Luxurious guesthouse located next to main house on a farm. Super comfy beds, luxurious bathroom and delicious breakfast made us feel right at home. Tranquil setting, surrounded by nature.

    Rory2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Hillview Farmstay is a beautiful place to stay, I can't fault it. Really should have 6 stars! Very comfortable, tasty breakfast and Angela and Stuart are very welcoming hosts. Would certainly recommend it.

    Dawn2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Hillview Farm Stay B&B was our last night in NZ after a three week trip and fortunately it was by far the best accommodation we have encountered in quite a few years. The twin room partially self contained cottage discretely positioned off the rear of the main house was luxuriously appointed in keeping with the renovated 1920's (Californian Bungalow) period of the main farm house but with a spacious modern bathroom and the most comfortable king and queen beds. The spotlessly clean bedrooms opened onto a beautiful pergola deck area complete with a climbing wisteria vine that overlooked a fenced manicured lawn scattered with established maple trees all within a beautiful heritage 500 hectare working sheep and agricultural property. Angela's acute attention to detail extended to the preparation of our breakfast. In our fridge Angela had prepared stewed rhubarb (from her garden), yoghurt, orange juice as well as some special bacon and egg muffins. Bread and muesli were also available and in gluten free as well for my wife. We felt truly spoiled and only wished we could have spent more days at Hillview. Fin

    Christopher2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

  • From the moment we arrived Angela & Stu's hospitality was exceptional as was the accommodation. Immaculate throughout with super comfortable bed, luxurious bathroom & excellent breakfast. One of the best farm stays we've ever stopped at. Thank you so much.

    Sarah2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • A really special place to stay. Angela and Stuart were very welcoming and helpful. We loved the style of the rooms, with the pretty garden views. Good breakfast, special touches like homemade muesli and stewed apple from the espaliered Peasgood Nonsuch in the garden, and homemade biscuits. Luxurious beds and bathroom . Sadly we didn' thave time to enjoy the hot tub on the deck. Thank you Angela

  • Despite the troubled times in March/April 2020, this was the best stay we had during our New Zealand trip. Arriving on a cold evening, we were welcomed personally by Francine and a warm fire. The fridge and cubboards were filled with everything we needed for breakfast and so much more. We found a very well equipped kitchen, comfortably furnished bedrooms and dozens of DVDs, books, magazines, board games and even boxes with toys for our son. We also found lots to play with in the large garden. Best of all were Stuart and Francine who made every effort to make sure we had a great stay. The house is perfect for long stays. It is easy to find and is located beautifully quiet in a remote area yet very close to the working sheep farm. We had great walks around the hills and I wish we could see the mountains in winter or when the peonies are ready to harvest. Maybe next time.

    Silke2020-03-30T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great place to stay. It was very comfortable, private, quiet, close to Christchurch, the mountains and much more. Everything that we needed we supplied - it was very well equipped and it just felt like home. We really enjoyed our stay and could highly recommend. I would definitely stay here again.

    My place is close to great views of the Southern Alps and away from the hustle and bustle of city living. It is a peaceful country escape. 10 mins to Darfield & 20 mins to Rolleston, and 30 mind to Christchurch or Christchurch airport. My place is good for couples and families (with kids). We are only a few minutes away from the hot air ballooning and an hour from the ski fields. The nearest golf course is only 5 mins down the road with several others available in the Selwyn distict.
    This is a completely self contained two bedroom unit. Includes washing machine, dryer, microwave, 2 hobs, bench top oven, electric fry pan, slow cooker, coffee plunger, toaster, sky TV, free wifi and heatpump.
    We live in a small village with only a small cluster of houses surrounded by farm lands.
  • A bit off the beaten track but amazing Airbnb!!! Big kitchen, comfy beds, plenty equipment, super clean! Perfect for 2 couples :)

  • I don't think I can emphasize enough how wonderful a stay we had at the Wairiri farm. Lucy was great at communicating prior to our arrival, and check-in was very simple. We got there in time to see their cheese making in operation, and they were even kind enough to share some with us! The whole family was incredibly welcoming and we really enjoyed getting to know them and share some stories of our own. We only wish we could have stayed longer!

  • This is the only water buffalo farm on the South Island. You get a chance to experience the whole farm life. Lucy and Christo are very friendly and take all the time to explain everything - despite a busy schedule. We bought some buffalo cheese and milk for our ongoing journey. So delicious :-)

    Peter2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • Lucy is an excellent host and her farm stay is more than just a stay - it is an EXPERIENCE! Her place is easy to find and the description of the room is spot on. I would add that you can hear the horses from the room which reminds you that you are at a farm stay. It is fantastic. But then there are the water buffalo! I took Lucy up on the dinner option and it was most excellent! In addition to an amazing dinner, Lucy provided different types of cheese from the buffalo milk! It was wonderful to learn about the milking operation and to spend time with Lucy and her family. I recommend this stay and highly recommend the dinner option Lucy provides. Great way to learn about a niche farm production in NZ.

    Vikki2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Lucy and her family are gracious hosts. A great farm-stay convenient to Mt Hutt, Porters & several other club ski fields.

    Newly built house which is a warm and sunny home, with amazing mountain views. Ideal for families to stay in lots of space for kids to play, close to ski fields and only 35mins to Christchurch. Guests can enjoy their own space in one half of the house which includes bedrooms, bathroom and playroom shared kitchen area. Under floor heating in the whole house, to keep you warm on winter days. Great play area for kids outside but still lots of landscaping needing to be completed.
    Our house has two wings with a kitchen and living area in the middle. You will have one wing with three bedrooms, a bathroom, and a playroom. I will have the other wing and we will share the kitchen and laundry.
    Beautiful mountain views! We are only 35mins from Christchurch, an hour from both Mt Hutt and Porters ski fields.
  • Marion is a great host, the description in the add also is accurate. Highly recommended especially for families that want to stay away from the city. The house is superb.

    Walnut Tree Cottage is next to the family home. It is a peaceful room with a queen sized bed, quality linen, wifi. The bathroom is located in the main house where you have access to your own toilet facilities, shared shower, laundry & kitchen. The property is located on 1 acre of land with stunning views of the Southern Alps, only 10 minutes drive to Darfield, 45 mins to nearest ski fields, 30 mins to Christchurch Airport. We have cats, dog, chooks, sheep, alpaca, bees and cheeky lorikeet.
    Walnut Tree Cottage sits under the old Walnut Tree and looks out onto heritage apple and pear trees. We have over 100 roses for you to enjoy from spring to summer. There are lovely spaces to sit and enjoy a glass of wine, beer or something lighter around the property. The room has tea/coffee facilities, quality linen, electric blankets and unlimited free wifi.
    Walnut Tree Cottage is located in the quiet tranquility of one of the first farming settlements of Canterbury, Greendale. While traffic noise is usually limited to harvesting times there are roosters, laying chooks, demanding pet sheep, possums stealing walnuts and the dawn chorus; however on a clear night the view of the milky way is second to none!
  • Nick and Karen are so welcoming and have a lovely place. Loved all the animals who enjoyed cuddles and a very cosy and warm space. Will definitely stay again when in Canterbury.

    Sam2020-03-14T00:00:00Z

  • Walnut Cottage at Karen's was the highlight of our trip to NZ! Located in a peaceful area outside of Christchurch gives a great opportunity to rest after long driving. Karen is a wonderful host, greeted us in the afternoon and introduced to her family members (animals included) which we were really looking forward to! We had a lovely chat about the animals, the farm and all kind of stuff - next day following Karen's and her daughter Ruby-Rose's recommendations we drove to Castle Hill - a rocky hill where LOTR and Chronicles of Narnia were filmed. We had a great time playing with the cats and Benji the lorikeet. Wifi signal is obviously stronger by the main house, but there were no issues with managing to stream in the evening one of the LOTR films ;) Following other airbnb reviews we asked for the cooked breakfast and we loved it! A perfect omelette with roasted kumara and kale with fresh vegetables from the garden was exactly what we needed after 2 weeks of eating toast with PB&J. We will never forget the warmth and kindness that Karen spreads around her and shares with her guests. Would love to come back some day!

    Anna2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • This little oasis just out of Christchurch is a perfect spot to unwind! Karen is an amazing and welcoming host and will do everything in her power to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Yummy breakfast is available, too! 😋

    Peter2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is tastefully furnished with a fridge, a big bed and a small table. We enjoyed our stay very much - Karen is a very nice and caring hostess. Highly recommended.

    We own & operate our farm near Hororata, Central Canterbury. We enjoy living in our area & make the most of the outdoors when we can. Please note this is a busy working farm so guests must stick to the accommodation section unless accompanied by us. Not suitable for pets sorry. A refurbished and fully furnished shearers quarters. Sunny & cozy with double glazing. 3 lockable bedrooms, open plan living/kitchen with logburner and heat transfer kit. Bathroom/laundry combined. Carport attached.
    Close proximity to CHCH INTL Airport. We are located just off the main tourist route. Private and fenced but not fully fenced. So NOT ideal for young children. Plus due to the residence being a Quarters there aren't any internal doors. We welcome guests from all backgrounds. We reside on the farm with our 2 young children and our 4 permanent staff and their families also live on farm too.
    There are numerous walks in the area, ranging from a 7 - 20 minute drive away and to suit varying fitness levels, (hills, flats). Two golf courses plus the pretty Rakaia Gorge and Lake Coleridge Village are just up the road! Both Mt Hutt and Porter's Heights ski fields are only an hours drive to the skifield carpark away. Hororata Village has a café/bar which also does takeaways. A 5 minute drive away. Other takeaways options include the Coalgate Tavern nearby and an Indian in Darfield.

  • We were lucky to meet the Bernard and Jane and share their lovely home for one night, where we were introduced us to the local area, cuisine, and neighbors. Their home is in a lovely setting, very comfortable with beautiful views of the mountains and grain fields. We wish we could have stayed longer and highly recommend this wonderful home and our marvelous hosts to our friends. The Hawkins farm is well located near Arthur's Pass and Christ Church. We enjoyed every minute including the local breakfast with fresh coffee, and fresh fruit. This is a very special experience and we will highly recommend this wonderful place to all our special friends.

    Thomas2019-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • A very relaxing stop over! Room is very tidy and has special touches added to it to welcome you and make you feel like you’re at home.

    Marie-Louise2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. The location is just perfect for heading out west via Arthur’s pass or south via inland scenic route. Or just for winding down and relax. I loved the garden area as well as the small private living room - felt actually like having a whole flat to yourself. Everything was clean and the hosts were very welcoming. Thanks for the little welcome present! Very thoughtful. Would stay anytime again.

    Mandy2019-12-11T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely relaxing place to stay. Very clean, private and the hosts were very welcoming. The gardens are beautiful and their recommendations for meals etc were very good. Would definitely recommend them. The little touches were really appreciated.

    Nestled among the trees of a quiet street in the sleepy township of Whitecliffs, Riverstone Cottage is the perfect place to get away from it all. Located just an hour from central Christchurch, and yet you feel like you are a world away. This special spot is at the edge of the town, just a few steps away from the lovely Selwyn River. There’s something for everyone whether you like biking, walking, fishing, golf, jet boats etc, or simply sitting back with a book!
    The cottage is well set up with a generous living space, 2 cosy bedrooms and drawers for storage. As it's a Bach we generally don't provide linen but we can make arrangements for that if required. Heat pump provides excellent heating/cooling plus the fire for that extra bit of warmth and atmosphere.
    The cottage has a wonderful view of the Lady Barker Ranges, and the deck is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine watching the sun set. Whitecliffs has a great playground, swimming holes and fishing, plus the campground around the corner is a great spot to explore or take the kids for a bike ride.
  • Beyond our expectations, a lovely holiday home that is filled with tranquility and rest, relaxation and a wonderful river a few steps down the road to enjoy!

    Jaguar2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage set in the most gorgeous, peaceful surroundings

    Emma2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Ellie is a great host. We had a fantastic time in her beautiful home. Would definitely recommend staying there.

    Caden2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy wee home (great heat pump), and very sunny. No wifi, and poor cell signal - which could be considered a plus. Bunk room very tight for adults. But recommended- all the basics and a bit more, good value for money.

    Margaret2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Ellie's place is perfect combination for a quick get away. Very clean and modern, new bathroom, kitchen, gas stove!, laundry, heat-pump to make it as comfortable as possible, but same time they kept a charming character of a holiday batch, the big stone fire place, furniture, back yard and distant view of the hills... perfect combination! You feel you have everything you do back home, but same time instantly feel you are on holidays. Also located well for golfing in a nearby town or skiing on MtHutt etc. We will certainly come again..
