Located in Christchurch City, Valley View Cottage offers peaceful, private, relaxing accommodation.
A cosy little house with all the comforts of home - stylish decor and completely self-contained, it's a piece of paradise....
Set in its own private garden, you'll find a secluded and peaceful getaway. The cottage is tucked away on the lower slopes of the Port Hills in the St.Martins Valley, with views to the City and Valley. Valley View's an easy drive to the city centre, shops and restaurants - close enough to town to be convenient but far enough away to be relaxing.
The nightly rate includes continental breakfast provision starters, pantry essentials and quality linens/towels. You'll find Sky TV, free WIFI/broadband access, telephone [local calls], BBQ for guest use and dedicated off-street parking.
There’s a fully-equipped kitchen – well-appointed with a pantry stocked with basics, making it a breeze to prepare meals if you don’t want to dine out. As well there’s a separate laundry with auto washer and dryer [outside drying line if the weather's kind]
Valley View comes with shampoo, soaps, paper products, and quality towels and linens - all there is to bring for your stay are personal items and food.
There's a supermarket and cafes nearby, and the cottage has allocated, off-street parking. The sunny front verandah leads to a BBQ courtyard with BBQ and outdoor furniture.
Valley View is cosy, warm and welcoming - exclusively yours for the duration of your stay. See more Reviews for this Cottage on the second listing on Homeaway via the Bookabach NZ site.

Why Jenny Taylor chose Christchurch
This lovely cottage is once again available for guests to enjoy, having had a makeover and repairs to minor damage sustained in the 2010 Earthquakes in Christchurch. Until six years ago, we lived beside it but retained ownership of this enchanting little property when we sold our family home and moved to another part of the city.
What makes this Cottage unique
The St.Martins Valley is a wonderful spot to live and the best thing is, although it's only 10 minutes away from the city, the surroundings are semi-rural, very peaceful and private. You'll hear much birdsong in the trees surrounding the house, a great place to relax and unwind.

Extremely comfortable and welcoming
Stayed 4 nights 01-05/11/10. An extremely comfortable, welcoming, clean, well furnished home just some 25 mins from the airport. Quite spacious with everything you could need for a great stay – in particular the home has not been stripped of everything useful and wonderfully there is an array of condiments, foodstuffs, normal household items like clingfilm, scissors, washing basket, clothes pegs etc. Bed linen is good, as are towels, bed comfortable and all the equipment worked. A nice view from the bedroom and lounge over to Christchurch. We could not fault anything in the home and unhesitatingly would recommend it. There is a New World supermarket and tiny shopping mall just 5 mins drive away (in fact, we walked it for some shopping and it took about 15 mins to get there on foot).
Sue, we're delighted you enjoyed your time at Valley View and that you found it to be a place you could recommend. Thanks for leaving the cottage in wonderful order on your departure, and any time you'd like to return you would be most welcome.
Welcoming stay from USA
My husband and I made this our first stop after many long hours of travel. Perfect, comfortable place to rest up and get ready for our 3 week stay. Very clean and quaint, all sorts of special touches including breakfast food and fresh fruit for at least 2 days and close to the bus stop to take into town. It's so very quiet and peaceful and the ideal spot to begin our love affair with beautiful New Zealand!
Christchurch is the largest city in the South Island - use it as a base to explore the province of Canterbury. Kaikoura to the north has one of the world's renowned Whale Watching sites; North Canterbury boasts the world's best Gold Medal Sauvignon Blanc wine and many wineries; visit Akaroa, a charming seaside town and the first French Settlement in New Zealand - here you can swim with the Hectors Dolphins, and lunch at a seaside cafe. Travel to Hanmer Springs and experience the Thermal Pools; take a trip on the Tranz-Alpine train through the Southern Alps to the West Coast - voted one of the world's 10 Best Train Journeys.
