“You won't want to leave your "home away from home"”

Reviewed 28 Apr 2014

We had a great experience at the Red Door Cottage. Every need was completely fulfilled. There was a fully stocked kitchen/pantry, spacious bedrooms, more bathroom amenities than a 4 star hotel, a fully equipped laundry room, outdoor grill and patio setting, Wifi, big screen TV including a variety of Dvd's, novels, magazines, travel information...all beautifully decorated. Sophisticated and very livable. Very comfortable for 2 people, cozy for 4 people. A great home base for day trips although I wished that I had time to just hang out at Red Door. You won't want to leave.

Response from the owner We're thrilled you enjoyed your time at Red Door, we love our little house and it's great to hear others enjoy it too. Please come back and stay next time you're in NZ. Thank you!

“Home away from home”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2013

Red Door has become our home away from home. Jenny has made it so easy and makes us feel like we are returning home. We arrived at midnight and had no problem getting into Red Door with the easy key access system plus Fresh Bread and Milk included for breakfast. The location is fantastic. Walking distance to some of Christchurch's best eateries, a supermarket, bank and the beautiful Hagley Park and the CBD. A full pantry, super comfortable beds, heating and cooling for all seasons Red Door is just an easy place to feel at home. Plus free wifi which is always a bonus when travelling. If you prefer home comforts and your own space - Red Door is a must for you. You won't regret it. Thanks Jenny.

“It feels like home.”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2013

When travelling, you want something well located, cosy, relaxed... Somewhere that feels like home. (And in winter, somewhere warm.) That's everything that Red Door Cottage is. Easy walking to CBD and Parks. Fab local coffee, restaurants and facilities. Short drive to local swimming complex, central to all areas. Great stay. Everything was thought of for us for our arrival. Would stay again on our next Christchurch trip.

“A Little Bit of Heaven in the midst of it all”

Reviewed 2 Dec 2012

This is an absolutely delightful little cottage. It has everything you need for your stay in Christchurch. The location is within walking distance of downtown and close to amenities such as restaurants and a grocery store. The owners are very accommodating. We communicated on several occasions prior to our visit and Jenny provided us with information on everything from tours to driving. Loved every minute of it. Thank you so much for everything.

“Beautiful cottage within walking distance of Christchurch”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2012

Spent 3 nights here in October. The cottage was very comfortable for the four of us and was within walking distance of downtown Christchurch and the city parks. The owners were delightful to work with and went out of their way to help us plan our trip. Absolutely wonderful experience.

Response from the owner Thank you, lovely to hear you enjoyed the stay at Red Door and in our lovely Christchurch. So have managed to resist the Toblerone - many thanks! Jenny.

“A tranquil fantastic cottage close to everything”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2012

We have travelled N.Z. for five weeks and stayed at cottages throughout the length and breath of this beauitful country and Red Door cottage has to be the very best we stayed in. The cottage is beautifully appointed with everthing that anyone could ask for. It is so comfortable warm with fantastic beds and a pantry full of wonderful goodies .No other cottage offered anything like this one did Jenny was very helpful with any query we had . We loved the quiet lane it is postioned in and the lovely gardens and so very close to the city .The appointments of this cottage is second to none. Thanks Jenny for everything and if we are back in Ch Ch I know where we will stay and that will be Red Door Cottage

“Accommodation with a wow factor”

Reviewed 17 Nov 2011

We were completely charmed and impressed by this comfortable and tastefully furnished cottage. The owners have been very thoughtful in ensuring that our needs are looked after right down to the provision of bandages. It was a perfect end to our 10 day road trip of South Island. We feel like very pampered house guests of our unseen hostess. Thank you for sharing your house.

Response from the owner Lovely to hear you enjoyed your stay at Red Door. We try to create a home-away-from home and it's great to hear that you were happy. Thank you for choosing to stay with us, you'd be welcome to return any time.

“cute house!”

We really enjoyed the cottage and John and Jenny were do helpful with everything!

“Better value than a motel/hotel by far!”

Reviewed 1 Oct 2011

We wish we could have stayed longer! Very happy with the cottage. Jenny does a great job of making you feel welcome and relaxed. Would recommend to anyone who is visiting Christchurch. I have to say it was one of the best if not the best place we stayed in our trip around the south island. They have thought of everything.Only thing I could say is maybe have another fold-out bed.(there is room for it)! Thanks again Jenny.

“A homey, well decorated, awesome home and host!”

Reviewed 28 Sep 2011

When we arrived at the Red Door Cottage, we didn't want to leave. This is a very cute home with all the amenities. Jenny left us with a fully stocked pantry and refrigerator, all the kitchen appliances you'd ever need, the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in, a washer and dryer with detergent, stain remover, etc. included, a modern kitchen, free wireless internet, and a big flat screen television. Jenny was the most amazing hostess. When our mother couldn't get a hold of us, she actually came over to see if we were OK, and called her back in the States to tell her we were fine. Incredible! I wish I could have stayed a week instead of two days. The location was great. Easy walk or bus ride to wherever you need to go, and near the cutest little village in case you wanted to be close to home at night. Perfect!! Thank you, Jenny, for a great experience!
