Stayed here for 9 weeks while our house was getting EQC re-repairs. Perfect for what we needed, comfortable with plenty of space to separate teenage boys. Tracy was terrific as the house manager and looked after us well. Just a shame the weather and water were too cold to use the pool. The only drawback was that the washing machine cycle takes a loooong time then finishes with an alert tune designed to make you insane. Short-term tenants should survive it and you can mute it anyway.

Top place to stay, we would use it again.
Owner's reply
Thank you for your lovely review. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and were well looked after by Property Mgr. Tracy said there is a 34 min wash cycle that she puts it on and also the alarm can be changed so had she known that you were having issues with the washing machine cycle time and alarm she would have shown you how to operate it to your satisfaction. Sorry about that. Thank you for your feedback on that. She is going to type up some detailed instructions now for future guests. Sorry about the winter weather in Sept but being from Christchurch yourselves it wouldn't have been any different if you were at home but if I could make the sun shine too for my guests I would be only too happy to do so for you all year around haha. Hope you get a really nice summer there this year to make up for it :) We advise our guests in the T&C's to tell us immediately if there are any issues at all that are not happy with so if you stay again in the future please let us know during your stay if anything isn't to your liking and we will do our best to rectify it immediately. We aim to keep our guesst happy and employ a full time property Mgr to look after you during your stay and she is only a text or a ph call away at all times or you can contact me anytime also if you can't get hold of her. Hope everything is going well and you are settled back into your new home and hope you liked the bathroom hamper gift Tracy delivered to you :)

Great place to stay, and the swimming pool was an added bonus since we stayed over the Summer Christmas period. For a large family group this was absolutely ideal. We live on the West Coast and had some family from Australia visiting and some family living in Christchurch that we also wanted to spend Christmas with so a holiday house was the way to go.

I would highly recomend staying at the "Birchfield" for larger groups up to 9 or 10. The sofas fold out as well so up to 12 or 13 could stay if you need the extra space. It was also a quiet neighbour hood, tucked away from any main roads.

My Husband and I and 3 Children aged 18, 11 and 8 absolutely loved our 26 day stay in the beautiful spacious and comfortable Birchfield House. It truly was a home away from home and so close to everything we needed. It was so wonderful being able to catch up with family and old friends, some of who visited us there and shared a BBQ or a meal cooked in the lovely big fully equipt kitchen and a swim in the pool which the 2 youngest children especially enjoyed along with the trampoline.
Much thanks goes to Jo, and her Managers Hazel and Trevor for making our booking and Holiday such a pleasant experience. We are saving hard to come back as soon as we can!!

The place was fine - Lots of room and it was great for the children with the lockable gate and tall fences. Also great to have a trampoline and indoor toys for entertainment.

Instructions and rules a little over the top...all very strict which made it a little hard to relax and enjoy. Just remember people who book houses on these sights and are prepared to pay large amounts of money for accommodation are generally not the sorts to have loud parties and leave rubbish out etc etc!
Owner's reply
Glad to hear that the house was fine, safe and enjoyable for the children. Unfortunately, The rules are standard and necessary in any accomodation agreement, whether holiday home, 5 star hotels, holiday parks or backpackers. Ours T&C's have been established over time due to one or two incidents that have previously happened. We have a lot of overseas guests, some who aren't aware of NZ customs and also a pool so legally the rules for safety etc need to be made very clear or we are liable for this. I email the T&C's out in plenty of time to guests, for their perusal, before being signed on arrival and most guests have commented on how straightforward and common sense they are. They are in place to fairly protect all parties. In our experience, how much people pay or how executive the guest is has no bearing at all on how much they will respect a property so the same rules are applied to all. Our tariff was actually less than a Christchurch backpackers (which is not even comparable in value to our home) so I feel that your comment re people paying "large amounts of money" for accomodation on these housing sites was a bit misleading. Holiday homes are generally a great way for people to have the comforts of home but also save money in comparison to other commercial accomodation.

We used the log fire every day, all day and loved the warmth and cosiness it created in the house. Plenty of beds and my favourite...the big couches. Lovely.

Would definately recommend "Birchfield" as an affordable place to stay in an ideal location for a family with young children coming to visit or stay in Christchurch NZ. We really enjoyed our stay, the kids loved the pool, the facilities in the house were excellent, especially the washing machine and ironing board, the local cafe is good too, (try the poached on brioche toast and you'll soon become a regular like we have!!) and the property manager and owner were very friendly and helpful during our stay.

What made the home for us, was that we were allowed to bring our cat with us. We had just emigrated and needed a place that would cater for him whilst we found permanent accommodation. I would just like to say a special thank you to the owners for letting us rent their lovely home, in doing so, made moving 13000 miles with two kids and a cat a doddle! Thank You! xx

Thanks Ginny, Happy to hear that you enjoyed the house and your stay in ChCh. The new Cafe Beauvais is proving very popular and the new Indian resturant across the Road also. We look forward to seeing you next time.
I just wanted to send a quick email and thank you for your amazing house



It was absolutely perfect for our family (6 adults 2 children) to enjoy a week together. It is so comfortable and the little

extra's in it make it feel just like home e.g. stereo, microwave, iron, coffee plunger, extra couches,DVD machine etc etc. There is heaps of room for everyone to sit around and chat or to find a place where they can do something on their own. Great take away shops/cafe just around the corner. We'll definately be back !!

Thanks very much Suzie, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay and had lovely weather for your trip. Look forward to seeing you again next time.
My family and I had a lovely stay at Birchfield. The size of the house and the 'extra' seating was just perfect to house 10 of us. We were very lucky to strike two great sunny days in the Garden City and had the luxury to lie on the couches in the sun (very sunny house) and with the fire going in the evenings, it was very cosy. I'm sure it will be equally pleasant staying there in the summer with the pool and BBQ area. We would deffinetly stay there again. Thanks for the comfortable stay. Kind regards

Really great place for a large group, facilities are fantastic, nice and clean, the house is really close to everything. If you play golf Harewood is a good challenge as is Waitikiri. We will be back again without a doubt.
