The SpaceThis simple and effective space provides all most travelers need in a single studio with separate bathroom. The host is available in house above and may be able to help with specific requirements. It is a great base from which to explore the area as well as a beautiful and peaceful place to relax for a few days in a busy schedule. Guest AccessYour space is completely separate from the house and will be yours alone. It is best suited to those with their own transport although guests without a car have enjoyed walking and using buses. Parking is on a small no exit street with little traffic. For those without transport there is a regular bus service 20 mins walk away from Lyttelton to town and a less frequent bus from 5 mins down the hill. These buses go to the central bus exchange where you can transfer to buses to the airport - or anywhere. Shuttles from the airport can cost over $60 and will take time dropping others off en route. Taxis will not be much more and are worth it for 2 or more people. Interaction with GuestsYou will be the only guests. Your hosts will be available when home, and contactable by phone or email at other times. There will be a local person available if the host is away.
