Tastefully decorated to create a light and spacious atmosphere, The Gardener's Cottage - Villa Apartment is a gorgeous 1-bedroom apartment-style sanctuary in the heart of Merivale, one of Christchurch's most upmarket suburbs.
Whether you're planning a short or long stay, this lovely apartment with a private garden is the perfect balance between comfort and elegance. The modern open-plan living area opens out through bi-folding doors onto the outdoor living/dining area, surrounded by beautifully manicured gardens. When the day comes to an end, and you've finished exploring or sightseeing around town, unwind under the sun umbrella with a cold drink while the BBQ sizzles away in the background.
Located in a quiet street, it is equipped with all the essentials, with added extras including an Espresso coffee machine to help you start each day well, and the latest Smart TV’s with Freeview when you are ready to chill out to some shows after dinner.
Perfectly situated for all the local amenities, you’re less than 1km away from Merivale Mall, cafes, and boutique bars and restaurants. Just minutes walk to Hagley Park, Botanic Gardens, Convention Centre, Town Hall, and the Arts Centre. With easy access to the CBD, beaches and schools you’ll feel just like a local. The airport is an easy 8.2km away, and if you are looking for a skiing, climbing or picnicking adventure the Southern Alps are approximately an hour and 20 minutes drive away.
There is also uncovered storage for skis, bikes, snowboards, canoes, or other bulky items at the rear of the apartment

This is a lovely property. We stayed for 4 nights and would happily stay again. The lockbox location was confusing and the key to get In not at all easy to use. Once we had overcome these two issues we had a lovely time. The property manager needs to fix a few maintenance issues which we have noted for her.
Thank you for your feedback Esther. We have amended the details so the lockbox details sent to guests are more clear and concise. We are working with the local property manager to look into the issues you have raised and will hopefully have these resolved as soon as possible so the next guests are not affected. We hope to welcome you back in future!

Lovely, well-sized cottage to spend time in. Everything in kitchen you could possibly need. Easy property to find, close to Merivale Mall & restaurants. Beautiful decor with lovely furnishings, two tvs, extra large fridge & dishwasher. You will lack for nothing at this cottage. Do not hesitate to book it for a fab break away
