5/5 Excellent

Ideal tiny house
Perfect place to stay for a weekend away around chch/north canterbury. Great value for money, would definitely use again :)

5/5 Excellent

Very modern, clean and comfortable.
I wasn't aware that this is a mobile home / 'tiny home' style accommodation, but, it actually suited us well and was great fun for the kids! Lovely and modern, clean, comfortable and warm. Thanks so much!

4/5 Good

Great wee property for a short stay
Chris was super helpful, property was clean, local area is lovely and great restaurant, The platform just down the road.

5/5 Excellent

Simply Swannanoa
A very tidy, warm, new and innovative wee property; almost a tiny home with space saving features. The property was clean and simply but interestingly furnished in a European style. It had plenty of storage for two nights stay. It was warm, with its own central heating and seemingly unllimited hot water. Chris was happy to share its story with us. The home is set in a paddock behind the owner's house. There are views of the mountains and sheep and hens as neighbours. Chris, the host, was lovely and always only a text away. He very kindly followed up immediately when we left something behind. Most amazingly, there was an EV charging point available that we greatly appreciated. Thank you for having us and for the invitation to return. It was great to give a country experience to our overseas visitors.
