About the Homestay
A nice, quiet and sunny double room available in a 3 bedroom (almost-renovated) house in Beckenham. I also have a small single room available if needed.
There is a big deck and hanging chair to sit out in the sun and enjoy the garden and birds.
15 min bike ride into the city centre (or 10 min walk to the bus stop), close to supermarkets, a popular craft beer bar, cafes and restaurants. 10 min bike ride to the Port Hills, which are full of hikes and mountain bike tracks and provide great views of Christchurch city and Lyttelton Harbour.

Bus route and lime scooters nearby. Also close to the Avon River for easy walks, and a good library.

I loved my stay with Tracey she was so helpful with everything. She made me feel comfortable and got me "integrated" in New Zealand in no time.
I really miss my second home as I felt it became in such a short time.
My next visit to Christchurch I will definitely be staying here again.
Tracey is a fantastic host, helpful and very hospitable. Made my stay in Christchurch very pleasant!
Tracey is a lovely host ! We shared time together, movies, dinners or wonderful biscuits, and she answered to my numerous questions regarding New Zealand. Her home is very comfortable, with a beautiful garden in a quiet location. I definitely recommend!
