My home is a lovely split level house with all 4 bedrooms on the 2nd level, so there are stairs. There are 2 Queen bedrooms available for guests and this listing is for the largest room and includes a continental breakfast. The other listing is the smaller room and is titled "Lovely bedroom in my quiet 2 level home". My place is suited for couples, solo adventurers and business travellers. Strictly quiet indoors and outdoors after 11pm please. This is a non smoking property No children No pets
Lovingly kept home that I enjoy sharing with guests. It's not all perfect, I need new carpet one day but it's lovely and welcoming and my beds are very comfortable with quality bed linens, duvets and electric blankets to keep you cosy. There is a separate toilet and a bathroom with new shower and vanity upstairs for guest use, and a shower and toilet downstairs for my use. The shower upstairs has great mains water pressure and a large shower head so is lovely but please be mindful of keeping water use to a level that ensures there is enough hot water for everyone. Please remember the house rule of quiet after 11pm therefore no using the shower after 11pm thank you. This ensures all my guests are well rested and happy. I will do my best to make your stay perfect.
My house is in a quiet residential street, it's just a short 10 minute walk to the town centre where you will find licensed restaurants, cafes, a variety of unique shops as well as a supermarket. Geraldine has a village atmosphere and is busy but relaxing. There are also museums, art galleries, an old unique working cinema and several parks and green spaces and lots of trees. A river meanders through the town and there are beautiful river walks alongside. The lovely native Talbot Forest sits above the town and is only a 10 minute walk from my house with a variety of lovely native bush walks to enchant you.

  • Jenny's airbnb listing is right up there with the best I have stayed in ever. Jenny is a warm hearted host, she is very obliging and makes you feel really welcome. The room has nice personal touches, a very comfortable bed and pillows plus an excellent shower. Breakfast was generous and filling. In addition her home has a lovely well cared for garden and parking is private off street. You won't do better than this in Geraldine for hospitality and value. Highly recommended.

  • Lovely, peaceful spot and great 20 minute (if you're relatively fit, bit more if not) walk through the forest to/from town if you desire. Great to have the chance to interact with the various animals too.

    Anthony2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay (albeit only overnight) at this modern and spacious property off the beaten path in Geraldine, a picturesque farming town where everyone really seems to enjoy the quiet life. The private space afforded to guests is ample with a gorgeous bathroom; the shower had excellent water pressure. The beds in both rooms were excellent. Each room has its own sliding door out onto the patio where you can sit and enjoy the peace and quiet with a book and a beverage. We had a tour of the expansive property in the morning, seeing the vegetable garden and the llamas, alpacas and pig (though the mysterious baby piglet did not make an appearance). The location of this property is great as you're 45 minutes from quaint Fairlie and just under 90 away from the stunning vistas of Lake Tekapo. I highly recommend this place for shorter stays and would be happy to come back.

    Tim2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • We were really happy to stay here. The rooms and bathroom are large, very clean With a lot of privacy. Jo was very friendly. Because we liked it here, we booked 2 extra nights!

    Aimee2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place to stay. Glorious setting. Very well appointed unit. Shady outside seating in the early evening( though you could easily move into the sun). Lovely garden and beautiful views. Such a friendly and accommodating family. Although there is no kitchen in the unit we were very grateful to be able to use the BBQ and everything we needed was provided. I wish we could have stayed longer.

    Christine2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • I loved my stay here, the house & the views are stunning. There’s plenty of walks on your doorstep and if that’s not for you it’s less than 5 minutes drive to town. The guest wing was spotless and has everything you’d need. I’d highly recommend staying with Jo and Pete.

    Gary2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • At the private ranch on the hill, the landlord was very nice. He not only took us to visit his more than ten classic cars, but also fed us his pets. The washing machine and clothes dryer are also very powerful, especially recommended

  • This B & B was very good !! Breakfast very nice, and they are very friendly

    Martijn2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful stay! A lovely home with gardens and very close to town. We only had a one night stop over but would have loved to stay longer. Doug & Daphne were delightful hosts and we really enjoyed chatting with them. They stay in the other side of the house and leave you to your privacy but are available if any questions and we felt very welcome. We walked to the cute little town for dinner and it was very close which was so great. The bed was very comfy, a nice large bathroom, and they had a little tea/coffee station that was set up for guests in the hall we used that was great. I loved the fresh cut roses on the bedside too—all very lovely touches. The continental breakfast with the hosts in the morning was delicious! Highly recommend, we will visit again if back in town. thank you Doug & Daphne!

    Laura2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Doug and Daphne welcomed us into their family be it for just one night! They are incredibly nice people with big and kind hearts! Their house is beautiful and inviting. The continental breakfast they prepare and serve is delicious especially the homemade preserved summer fruits and jams. They also have the nicest shower ever!! We would love to stay with them and enjoy their fun company again!

  • We loved our stay at Rosemary Cottage. The cottage is set in an amazing garden setting and is decorated beautifully. We also enjoyed the breakfast, Janey’s home baking and the native birds. We went into town for dinner, which only takes a few minutes. Janey and David are excellent hosts. A great Airbnb. Thanks Liz and Warwick

    Warwick2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Cutest cottage, close to the town but with a rural outlook. Lovely touches in the cottage and exactly what we needed, thank you!

  • I stayed over at Judith's for one night. I can not fault my stay. I had a "room with a view" because from the patio area, I had an excellent view of the beautiful landscape outside the building. My room was kept clean and tidy but more importantly I had a good nights sleep! I recommend Judith's place to anyone who is seeking a comfortable stop-over in the heart of Geraldine.

    Sarah2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • This stay has been one of the highlights of my holiday and should be ten stars. Hosts are really lovely- made me feel like one of the family. The house/farm a couple of minutes from town centre is luxurious with lovely big guest room, own bathroom & toilet. Graham gave me the buggy tour checking on the deer, cows, sheep, goat and fruit trees. Great little town with unusual picture theatre and well worth staying here before or after visiting Lake Tekapo.

    Sharon2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed the hospitality, the comfort of both the home and our room. Judith was away and Graham took great care of us with the help of Bobby the cat and Millie the dog. The sunrise was incredible! Totally recommend this beautiful tranquil place.

    Lea2020-03-06T00:00:00Z

  • Gerry's place is a jewel of an Airbnb just outside Geraldine and conveniently located if you want to explore the area. The place is finished to a very high standard and you will find all you need to spend a relaxing time. We loved strolling around the garden, looking at the cows and the vegetable garden and of course playing with Megs, the lovely Labrador, who is a real star. We would highly recommend Gerry's place.

  • We loved staying here. Sorry we didn't stay more days. Margaret really created a wonderful, spacious, yet cozy place to relax. Spotless with nice amenities. Loved the chocolate chip cookies. She and her husband were delightful to talk to and helpful. And, getting to see the amazing garden was a plus. Highly recommended. Would stay again if we're in the area.

    Yesmean2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

  • Margaret’s “The Studio” was a great find for us. From a warm welcome to a fond farewell every aspect of our stay was outstanding. The Studio is spacious, impeccably clean and meticulously provided for. We appreciated the excellent quality furniture and the very comfortable bed with beautiful, crisp sheets, the well equipped kitchen and bathroom, great breakfast, great lighting, a library of books, most beautiful garden, etc. We wish we could have stayed longer. And the town of Geraldine is cute too!

  • A wonderful welcome, to a fabulous retreat. Nestled among lovely native trees Everything you need in a lovely cosy cabin.

  • Wonderful hostess who goes out of her way to answer any questions and give you some local tips! Lovely setting, very close to Geraldine but yet felt so much like a private cottage in the country. You may hear some traffic noise though as it is close to the road. It did not bother us. Would stay there again if we were in the area.

    Gil2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended accommodation and very nice hostess. We felt very comfortable

    Andre2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Maureen's Country Cabin is comfortable, clean and convenient and is set in a lovely NZ native garden. She provided a delicious and healthy breakfast, responded immediately to enquiries and was a very welcoming host. Highly recommended!

    Vyvienne2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Maureen's hospitality is 10/10. She made our stay very special by taking the time to provide an organic breakfast ready in the fridge on arrival. Maureen was lovely and took time to show us her garden and meeting her cat and labrador. Maureen's place is very clean and comfortable with good amenities. Car spot is very conveniently located directly on the right of the cabin which is accessed through a small gate visible from the main road. Area is very dark at night but keep your eyes out for red cones Maureen has put out to direct you to the correct gate. The darkness at night makes star gazing an amazing experience. Maureen's bubbly personality makes her very approachable, and we felt well looked after. Thanks again Maureen!

The fire will keep you warm at night and you’ll have the most relaxing evening of your life! 110% recommend staying here, the hosts could not have been easier to work with! Nathaniel from Australia: Aug 2018 "This was probably our favourite night in New Zealand! Kay is great, so accomodating and even had home made breakfast ready for us. The property was extremely comfortable and warm and the stars at night were amazing and filled the sky. Thanks so much Kay!" John from Australia: July 2018 We stayed for a night during our break journey from Christchurch to Queenstown. When we were checking out, we regretted having not stayed a day or two more. Sayantan from England: Dec 2017 We had a WONDERFUL night in this brilliant cottage. We were up for hours playing board games and watching the stars. We couldn’t have asked for more from a night away. We were provided with a lovely breakfast and the cottage is on a fantastic property - we were both very impressed. Sheryl Sept 2018 Cook your own dinner: Simple stovetop cooking (plus all cooking utensils, cutlery crockery, pots/ pans), gas fridge, and a phone charger for guests use in the cottage. Dine outside in the in evening sun or visit one of the superb cafes & restaurants in nearby Geraldine. So many of our guests have enjoyed a break from their devices ( and slept so well!) and engaged with their partners, friends/ family in conversation, board games, puzzles or just taking the time to read a book. It's a great place for just sitting and gazing at the mountains with a drink, contemplating the meaning of life. However, you are welcome to access wifi at the main home to check your messages, arrange booking etc Squaint village of Geraldine - just 8mins drive away. The cottage sits on its own terrace, a short 200m stroll, over a footbridge from the guest car park. As part of the service we ferry our guests' gear (and you as well if you would like) up to the cottage - however because of the creek, the access is not suitable for 2WD rental vehicles.

  • Good clear instructions for self check in. Kay’s place was a different experience with a beautiful outlook with the sun on the mountains in the morning. Unfortunately there were clouds at night and no stars to see.

    Murray2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely spot to relax and enjoy the area!

    Joe2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was relaxing. The bed was one of the most comfortable on our month-long trip to New Zealand. We enjoyed sitting outside and watching the sheep. The stars were also spectacular

    Mary2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a gem of a spot. Me and my dad stayed here during the rainiest day of summer I reckon! We arrived being wet and cold and it was so great stepping inside a warm en cosy home. The fire was lit, music as playing and there was a basket filled with food for breakie, it was great. We ended up playing heaps of games and enjoying time off-grid. Kay is a great host and was easy to contact. During the night the night sky cleared up and we had an epic view. Would def recommend staying here, it's an awesome experience.

    Marieke2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely stay, sad we could only stay the one night. Was good to unplug. Has everything you would need with lots of thoughtful touches

    Tara2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Best Airbnb we stayed in while in NZ for a month! We had the best time and it was so beautiful. The breakfast was worth the price alone!

    Brittany2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • The starry skies from the cabin is unbelievable! We loved getting “simple” and spending time off of our devices for a bit. Kay was super helpful and accommodating. The included breakfast was a treat! We could tell that she really cares about her guests.

    Quayle2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Nice homely friend. We'll stocked kitchen with local milks eggs bottled water just about everything you would need not to mention the warm home baked bread and soft music to greet us. Loved this off the grid home. Will make a stop Everytime I'm in the area

  • Nice stay in Joanne's apartment!

    Jonas2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • A peaceful and quiet stay at this comfortable and nicely appointed house. A very sweet dog and friendly horse will greet you as you arrive. Beware, the sweet dog is a charming beggar!! She returned as we were eating dinner on the deck and I will admit, it was impossible to ignore those sweet puppy-dog eyes. (Apologies to Jo for spoiling Sweet Dog’s diet/appetite.) This place reminded me of the farm I grew up on near Newton, Kansas, USA. Loved hearing the cows lowing as they settled down for the night. Between the BBQ grill, hot plate, toaster oven, kettle, and toaster...you really have everything you need to create a meal. The fresh milk and cereal options were very much appreciated. Nice to have a washer and drying line too. Quiet and dark at night — great for sleeping! This stay was a much needed break during our two week road trip through the South Island.

    Dennis2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Had a comfortable stay at Joanne’s place. The place was really clean and we got a good feel for a farm house. Was an excellent place to relax. Would highly recommend if you are looking to get a good farm house experience.

    Raghavan2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely and closet place to stay. Enjoyed visiting with Meg the dog and petting the horses. Nice walk up the country road.

    A modern, warm and comfortable house close to all amenities in Geraldine. It sleeps 4 in 2 bedrooms, a cot is available and each bedroom has its own bathroom. The house has a single internal garage. Wifi is available at the library and cafes. "Great place. Park your car and walk everywhere, so close to what you need as well the pool, forests trails for walking and riding. Next time we'll just relax in the house and play games.” Guest quote. Please note - we do not accept same day requests
    This was my fathers house bought when he moved out to NZ to join us. It had been newly built when he bought it 8 years ago. The embroderies were all made by my mother. The single beds are both King singles, the double is a Queen. Each bedroom has its own bathroom - both with showers, one with a bath as well. The lounge, kitchen and dining space are all open plan. The kitchen has a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, oven and microwave. The lounge has a heat pump, cd/tape player and a TV, books and a few games. It has a sliding door which opens onto the back garden and receives all day sun. The single internal garage has room for one car. The garage also houses the washing machine and drier.
    Geraldine is a lovely little town and has a library [free internet], swimming pool [in summer], childrens playground, lots of cafes [our favourite is the "Running Duck"], boutique shops, a supermarket, take aways, restaurant, tennis courts, riverside and forest walks, 2 golf courses and parks and there is the Geraldine Observatory which you can book - the night sky is just as good as at Tekapo . Talbot Forest is 5 mins from the house and is a NZ gem. It has numerous tracks and many large native trees, home to many of NZ's native birds. Geraldine makes a great holiday base with Timaru [blue penguins, Maori rock art visitors centre], Peel Forest Scenic Reserve [forest and mountain walks] and Tekapo [great views, night sky, hotpools] all being within easy reach.
  • Great wee place to stay. Clean and tidy, excellent location and great communication. Thanks!

    Yuxin2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Hillary's place is very spacious and located right in the centre of town. The house is equipped with everything you need and even has a private garage linked to the house which makes unloading of luggages very convenient. The Master bedroom is large and comfortable. I would recommend Hillary's place without a doubt.

    Geraldine, Canterbury, New Zealand

    Situated on a quiet cul-de-sac, overlooking the Canterbury plains and the foothills of the Southern Alps in the distance, you will find the perfect place for your stay in Geraldine.
    Enjoy your own sunny, private bedroom with a queen size bed, use of shared toilet and bathroom with another housemate. Enjoy the views of the mountains from the privacy of your room or you're most welcome to come join us in the common living area where we spend most of our time in the evening when we are at home. In the mornings, watch the sunrise over across the canterbury plains while enjoying breakfast and watch the alpacas stroll around the paddock. If we are around (as we work during the day) we will be out and about doing routine chores. If you are a keen helper, we wouldnt mind an extra pair of hands and you could probably become buddies with the alpacas. During the winter months, stay warm, enjoy the fire and watch some netflix or just mingle over a cup of hot beverage (or a glass of wine if you prefer)
  • Brilliant home, brilliant location , extra brilliant hosts!

    Jiwon2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • The owner provides an elegant and comfortable resting place for the tenant, and the owner's thoughtfulness and intentions can be seen everywhere. The questions from the tenants were warm and caring responses from the owners, and they also allowed the tenants to interact with the cute alpaca up close. Everyone is recommended to visit!

    博緯2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Tommy’s place is much better than it’s presented in the pictures. Guest Room is clean and comfy with a good view. The fluffy alpacas are so friendly and cute. Tommy even provided us the feed for the lovely creatures, allowing us to play with them for an extended period of time and making the overall experience one of our best in the South Island.

    Sophia2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend, great hosts and lovely place.

    Shane2020-02-07T00:00:00Z

    Eeyore2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Very friendly couple host, we talked about a lot of interesting New Zealand life content, quiet town, very clean rooms, and provided warm help for our confusion. Tommy took us to interact with the grass mud horse in the sunset.

    Yulu2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • The host is a little brother from Hong Kong. The couple is warm and hospitable. They also invited us to have dinner together, so that we who have eaten burger pizza for many days have a friendly Chinese food. The food I ate were all grown by the landlord, who also brought us cute alpaca. The scenery is particularly good. It is located on the top of the mountain. It is a leisurely idyllic scenery for planting vegetables and flowers, raising chickens and sheep. Particularly suitable for enjoying a slow-paced life.

    so-so2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Would recommend this place to any one who is passing through. The house is stunning and completely clean. Tommy and Karen are so welcoming and open. It is the perfect place to get a good nights rest, relax in the view and get up close to some cute alpacas.

  • Denise's place is spacious, clean and comfortable. It is conveniently situated for the centre of Geraldine. Denise is an excellent hostess, we stayed on an unseasonably cold summer evening and she came round and lit the wood burner and supplied an extra heater. She then popped back a little later with more wood to make sure we would be warm enough.

  • We had an excellent stay at Jackie’s place! The cottage was very clean and spacious. It had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. The garden was beautiful and nice to walk around. Jackie greeted us and was extremely kind and friendly. I highly recommend staying here!

    Andrew2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Words can't express what an awesome, calm and special place this is. An old school house situated within a homestead, it was an extraordinary place to spend time in. Filled with beautiful art work and everything you could possibly need to take care of yourself, we cannot recommend this place more. Jackie is also an exceptionally kind host.

    Kate2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! I arrived late at evening. But, definitely need to spend more time around the house.

  • They were very helpful on local restaurants and knew the best places to go. I had a single private room which was kept nice and warm, plus the bed was pretty comfy as well. Cool hostel with a few games and activities to do if you're staying with someone (I was on my own and the only one in the hostel at the time - shoulder season)

    Nick2019-05-20T00:00:00Z

    Cosy 1 bedroom guest house with kitchen, dining and lounge area. Great view of the mountains. 10 minutes from Geraldine. House has a Woodstock for heat,bathroom, and full kitchen. Sofa pulls out but is not very comfortable. Covered front porch is a great place to sit and relax and take in the view.
    The place is surrounded by dairy farms and has a view of the mountains from the windows and front porch. Great coffee shops, restaurants and shopping in nearby Geraldine and Temuka.
  • Great place with thoughtful touches. Fire was going for us when we arrived on a cold wet night. Dogs are super friendly...vegetable garden available for us to pick some vegetables for dinner

    Robyn2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place and good hospitality!

    Dijana2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely cottage, Mark and Anneke were really kind and helpful if you are looking for a place around the area you must try this cottage. Fly screens on all the windows a night with out midges or sand flies is not to be missed

    Bob2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • I don't want to say too much about the cottage, just in case it's not available next time we want it. But really, it's a gorgeous we cottage with all the comforts we needed and lots that we didn't. I don't know if the Wi-Fi worked - or if it even had Wi-Fi. There was a TV, but not sure if it worked. The fire worked great - and we needed it, it was cold - for this time of year anyway. If you want to just chill out, then this is a great place to do it.

    Rhys2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great space and the dogs were lots of fun.

    Hadyn2020-02-21T00:00:00Z

    Alexia2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had a relaxing and peaceful stay at this lovely property. The courgette from the garden was delicious. Very friendly and welcoming hosts (and pets!). Thank you!

    Karen2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our overnight stay at Mark's place. It's an ideal place if you want to spend the night in the country. It's not too far from Geraldine and State Highway 1. Mark's place is spacious so we had plenty of room. We also appreciated the easy parking for our ute. We would happily return to Mark's place when we pass through the area again.

    Temuka, Canterbury, New Zealand

    The delightful town of Geraldine which is on the main route to Mt Cook & Queenstown is only a few minutes drive away. Rivendell is a traditional New Zealand villa and is situated in a secluded position with beautiful gardens and offers peace and tranquility. The studio unit which is situated at the rear of the property and is attached to the main house has all the facilities you would require. We have numerous pets including my horse Bramble, Gimli the Scottish Highlander and Bilbo the alpaca.
    The studio unit has a theme and it is Mallard Ducks.
    Although we have neighbours we are in a secluded position well off the road and very private.
  • Ricky (Erica) & Andrew's place has everything needed and more. They provided cereal for breakfast, tea, coffee, milk and orange juice. On arrival there were chocolate chip cookies waiting. I used their washing machine and line. I particularly like ths added touch of a bathrobe. The studio apartment is separate from their house but you can still enjoy their alpacas, dog, cattle and horse. A quiet location in ideal setting.

    Michelle2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Ricky & Andrews place. Handy to town in a beautiful rural setting and can highly recommend for a stay, the hospitality is great and communication easy.

    Tanitta2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic place to stay. A breathtaking spot. Out of town but very close. A great nest for a couple. Small, but totally comfortable . Anyone going up or down between Christchurch and Queenstown, Must and should have a stay in this gorgeous place. Thanks Erica and Andrew. Ace.

  • Wauw, what an amazing place to stay! It’s very clean and bigger then we expected. The bed is amazing and Ricky and Andrew are really nice hosts. They even helped us with our laundry. They put it in there dryer because it was still wet. Very helpful and kind people and the place is absolutely wonderful. Highly recommend!!

    Fenna2020-01-20T00:00:00Z

  • We had the most wonderful stay. Jennie and Roger are the nicest people and made us feel very welcome. The place was impeccably clean and there was eye for the details. To have a swim in the pool after a hot day was the best.

    Nick2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great setting close to Geraldine. The pool and tennis court are nice bonuses if you have the time. Great hosts.

We had an incredible time hanging out with Jennie, Rodger, and Roxy. I am in love with this family and felt so cared for, it's almost unbelievable. You would be incredibly lucky to stay here. I really wish I could have extended my stay here. Highly recommended!

  • This place has it all from a superhost who provides some yummy treats to overall hospitality that is second to none. If you need a relaxing break to get away from it all this is the place with very comfortable bed and other furniture . All the facilities you could possibly need including a tennis court and 32 degree pool. A must stop. Keen to come and stay again can thoroughly recommend. As the Dilmah tea man said “ do try it”
