“Great Family Stay”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed 2 nights (Aug. 19 & 20th) while visiting South Island. The house is close to the airport and is a great spot for families. It was very comfortable for a family of 5 (including 3 teenagers). The house is clean and fully equipped (kitchen appliances, dishes/pots, separate washer and dryer) and comes with everything you need. Supermarket is a 10 minute walk from the house. I was also able to conveniently park my rental car on the property. Free WiFi worked perfectly.

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Lovely cottage - easily accessible, warm, clean and comfortable with everything you could need to be self contained. City center is close as are great restaurants in Merivale. Beds were so comfy that we didn't want to get up. Enjoyed every minute of our stay - 'we'll be back' .

“Totally beyond expectation”
Reviewed 22 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Thank you Jenny for allowing us to have a home away from home at the Red Door Cottage for three wonderful nights. How we wish we could have stayed longer, but our itinerary just did not allow it this time. It is far more than a Cottage. It is a two bedroom home and with all the comforts of home including a fully equipped kitchen and many provided extras in the fridge and food cupboard that you certainly would not expect to find. The bowl of assorted chocolates and vase of flowers was the icing on the cake. We hope very much to be able to return very soon.

“Definately up to scratch!”
Reviewed 14 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Red Door Cottage is perfect! Two very spacious bedrooms, a large living area, ideal location (easy walk to shops and eateries in Merivale. Every thing you need is here, comfy beds with very cosy bedding, heaps of towels, a well equipped kitchen and so cosy and warm. Reeally can't say enough about how great this accomodation is. It is really easy to find and access, very reasonably priced and just right for two couples.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 11 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We absolutely loved the Red Door Cottage! It is so warm and cosy and the kitchen is incredibly well stocked. It rained for the entire 3 days we were in Christchurch and we simply didn't want to leave the house! It is so well set up and in a great location - definitely the best place to stay in Christchurch! I wish I could give it 6 stars!
