About this Holiday House

Nestled amongst trees and 5 minutes from Little River - gateway to Banks Peninsula - lies this piece of luxury accommodation we call Birdsong Lodge. Set amidst native bush and exotic plantings with expansive views across and down the valley, this unique and totally private location offers you a green and truly tranquil experience. Soak up the privacy of a place where only the sounds of bush and bird can be heard. Make your contribution toward environmental responsibility by supporting a complex that prides itself on green business through on site power generation and comprehensive recycling. Yes, we are totally off the grid here!! This secluded retreat with it's mix of modern internal fixtures and beautifully finished wooden features would be suited as much to a getaway with family and friends as to small party corporate functions. The main house offers exquisitely presented wooden timbers, a marbled bathroom and granite kitchen, and an open mezzanine style living area all warmed by an expansive log burner. The master bedroom is large with a superking bed and bi-folding doors opening onto a generous deck area. The second bedroom has a queen bed, an en-suite toilet and vanity, its own office, and views overlooking the valley. The third bedroom, a short walk from the main accommodation, is a unique and very appealing tree house. Internally dressed in cedar this space contains two single bunk beds, desk, and lights. Birdsong Lodge - 30 minutes from Akaroa, is on the very doorstep of cafes, fine wines, vineyards, and a bevy of other enticing tourist opportunities and activities. Your hosts Ron and Tanya can offer you a window into the way small town New Zealanders live and provide you with a wealth of information on local attractions and history. Shake off the routines of daily life as you arrive, and soak up the ambience of this most unique place!

After a long five weeks travelling New Zealand this was a beautiful place to end our holiday. The house is very luxurious and the attention to detail is superb. Tanya made us feel very welcome with a bottle of wine, cheese and biscuits and the most delicious fresh cooked carrot cake. It is an easy drive to Christchurch from here and close to beautiful Akaroa. I recommend staying a few days to really unwind.
We had a lovely morning in Akaroa while staying out on the peninsula. Although this house is an hour from Christchurch and we made two trips into the city during our 4 day stay, it was well worth it - we LOVED the location, the house and especially Gregg & Tania, who were the most wonderful hosts. They have great attention to detail and we felt very well looked after but certainly not intruded upon. The house was immaculately clean and very beautifully furnished, and Gregg & Tania had very kindly left supplies for tea, coffee, a lovely bottle of wine and numerous other special "touches" which made our stay special. 6 of us were very comfortable and the funky little treehouse was great for the 2 young people in the group. We hosted a dinner party for 10 while we stayed here and had a beautiful evening out on the deck, and then enjoyed a delicious meal with Gregg & Tania the following night. We have stayed at numerous holiday homes on our 6-week trip around NZ, and this is certainly the most memorable - whether you are having a weekend away from Christchurch or are on holiday in New Zealand, this holiday house will go way above and beyond your expectations.
