+ 2 bedrooms on the top level both with views of the city.

+ My unit is located near the Riccarton shopping Mall only a 3 minute walk away.
+ 12 mins bus ride from airport, 5 mins to the city.
+ Riccarton is the new city center while the city rebuilds after the earthquakes.
+ Plenty of options for transport as there are many bus lines that use Riccarton road and I have 2 good bikes available.
+ Biking is a very popular way to get around the city and there are many bike lanes.
+ The city and Hagley park are close and within walking distance, if you like waking.
+ The South Island of NZ has breath-taking scenery and there are many places of interest within a few hours drive.
+ Hanmer Springs with its hot thermal springs is 1.5 hours away, consider staying overnight.
+ Akaroa is a quaint French village is well worth a days visit, although is is a very windy road.
+ Kaikoura (whale watching) is nearby and is a good place to stop on the way to Picton or Nelson.
+ Christchurch is the gateway for the South Island and the largest city in the South Island.
+ The South Island has a mountain range running the full length of the West Coast of the Island (Southern Alps).
+ The South Island is ideal for outdoor activities (tramping, biking, fishing) or just enjoying the scenery, and taking lots of photos.
