Based on a farmstead in Lyttelton Harbour near Christchurch, New Zealand, this holiday rental is perched hillside surrounded by forest and vibrant gardens and overlooks an idyllic sandy beach. Guests will find the shore and its rock pools just a two-minute walk away where they can swim, kayak, or simply take in the sun from with a good book in hand. The holiday rental is a room in the farmstead that was once traditionally used as the farm workers quarters but now makes for the ideal spot for adventures and comes with a single bunk bed over a double and sleeps three guests in total. The beds are comfortable all year round and have been fitted with cotton sheets, a wool underlay, and a down comforter while the rental also includes a desk, a wardrobe, and a chest of drawers, however, guests also have access to the farm’s kitchen for preparing snacks and cups of tea and coffee.

The farm also has a number of hiking trails that can be followed, even on horseback for experienced riders, that will take guests to the top of the hills for breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and beyond.

This stunning glamping destination is tucked away on a 306-hectare farm, with a rugged landscape that ranges from steep tussock covered pastures to flat hilltops and rolling home paddocks. With the beach less than 50 meters from the front door, guests will easily be able to enjoy this stretch of New Zealand's coastline. With its coves and beaches that run all the way from Christchurch, to the Birdlings Flat on the southern side of the Banks Peninsula, it is considered one of the most beautiful parts of the area and a prime destination for nature enthusiasts. Situated between Diamond Harbour and the towns of Port Levy and Purau, this location is the perfect combination of secluded rurality without having to sacrifice the comfort of nearby amenities.

The close proximity to the city of Christchurch makes it an easy journey and is ideal for anyone looking for a staycation out of the city or for those coming from further afield to enjoy a region, steeped in history and it is popular with archaeologists with Camp Bay located just a short distance from the accommodation in nearby Lyttelton Harbour.
