Pet Friendly Holiday Homes in Christchurch

Planning a holiday to New Zealand’s famed Christchurch doesn’t have to be a daunting process — even when you’re planning on bringing the family pooch along on your travels. The city is brimming with activities and packed with potential sightseeing adventures – it all just comes down to how you and your group likes to spend your time! If you’re an art buff, the city is home to dozens of galleries and museums to explore. Perhaps you enjoy a little nature with your urban experience, and Christchurch is just the place for that. It’s a coastal city, and the Avon River flows throughout it allowing for a lovely citywide bike and foot path available for meandering alongside the water. There are countless restaurants to sample and pubs to visit, and if shopping is your cup of tea, Christchurch offers tons of options for you to browse the day away.

Regardless of what you do on your vacation, it’s always nice to have a comfortable, well-equipped home to spend your down time in, and it’s critical that your rental allows your four-legged pals to come along, too! Here are our Top Four Recommendations for pet friendly accommodation Christchurch.
