What a beautifully decorated house with everything we needed and more. This became home to us for a few weeks, much longer than we expected and Jacqueline you were amazing to deal with. Thank you so much. Tonio and Laetitia
Response from Owner
Thank you for your kind comments - the admiration is completely mutual. I hope you're loving your new home and are feeling fully settled in. You deserve it! xx
We stayed here for approximately 3 months, October 2016 - January 2017, while my husband worked for the District Health Board. We could not have found a better home! It was a very short drive for work and a brief walk to Riccarton Road to catch a bus. At first I was uncertain about living across the street from the mall, but it turned out to be a great convenience. We were also walking distance to numerous restaurants, the post office, a fitness center we joined, and one of my very favorite places: the Riccarton Bush & Saturday farmers' market. The gorgeous Hagley Park is also within walking distance, although we tended to take the bus or drive, since walking around the park, including the Botanical Gardens is a good walk in itself. So, all that is to say that the location of this townhouse was perfect for us. The amenities that first drew us to choosing this place included: air-conditioning, a washer & dryer, a garage, a good price for the size, and extra bedrooms & a bath room for guests coming from the USA. Since our stay was so long we did a lot of cooking and the kitchen had everything we needed and more. The master bedroom walk-in closet was a real plus for all of the clothes we needed for 2 seasons plus my husband's work clothes. Also, the bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable for us. The owners were the best! We try to use furnished rental properties whenever we travel, and these owners really stand out in terms of helping before, during, and after. If this townhouse is available during your travels, we would highly recommend it.
Prompt and friendly communications by the owner regarding our booking. Everything was well organised and Jacqueline was welcoming and available during our week stay without being intrusive. The apartment is very clean, warm and nicely furnished and well set up for 5 adults with lots of little touches that make it very welcoming. Easy parking for two cars and fantastic central location, very quiet considering it is conveniently a step from Westfield mall. Thank you! Jill & Scott
