We arrived at St Ita's the week of the Canterbury Show, Cup Week and the visit of Prince Charles and Camilla, hence Canterbury was extremely busy to say the least!
How lucky we were to have the opportunity to stay in this charming guesthouse with Miriam and Ken as our hosts. It truly is a "home away from home" and met all of our needs and expectations.
It is an easy drive to Christchurch airport from Rakaia and a perfect base to explore the history of the region. We would highly recommend St Ita's and look forward to staying there on our next holiday in NZ. Thank you Ken and Miriam for your wonderful hospitality.
