I had the best time staying in Christchurch with the Patersons. Deb and Bryce were always willing to help out and they were so welcoming. I felt at home and was sad to leave it. I'm already looking forward to my next trip to New Zealand and will stop by Christchurch to say hi. Thanks for everything Deb!
I had a great time at this homestay. I was in Christchurch for three months for a work related project at the University of Canterbury, and the daily commute by bus was doable in around 40 minutes. It was worth it though, because Debs' and Bryce's place was the perfect place to stay in a very good part of town. They went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed, even picked me up from the airport. I felt at home immediately, yet I was able to follow my own schedule. I had the best time! We definitely became friends over the time, and my husband and I recently went back to visit.
