Guest Reviews

Gordon's apartment is very modern with great light and views of the beach. The beds are comfortable even for an adult in a twin bed. Lots of cafes and restaurants in the area, though some close early and are not open on Mondays. Easy access by car to city centre and great day trips. We had a great time!


Great place to stay. The best night night during our trip. Gordon and Lynn are really nice couple. The apartment is tidy and clean. Even simple breakfast is prepared. All the facilities are advance and easy to use. We cooked our own dinner there since everything is so handy. Strong recommended. Would love to come again.


Gordon was fantastic from his communications prior to us arriving and then he was waiting for us in the foyer late at night! The apartment was everything it looked to be on the website and we had a lovely stay. Great location, lovely host and thanks for the thoughtful goodies in the fridge for me and my daughters - thanks!


Had a fabulous stay at Gordon's beautiful Sumner apartment. It was just perfect for two couples, with a bedroom & bathroom each. Lynn met us & let us in - and we particularly enjoyed the delicious cheese, crackers & Pinot that was left for us. We would love to stay again & will recommend to any visitors to Christchurch. It was lovely being so close to the beach & also the cafes & restaurants.

You will love this apartment!! It has everything you need!! Don't bother booking any other accommodation!!! My three sisters and I stayed here last weekend, wine, cheese and crackers provided, as well as other provisions. Its a perfect spot and really close to beautiful Sumner beach! We have stayed at heaps of apartments over the years and this is one of the best!!! Thanks Gordon!!!!!!!!


We had a fabulous time. The Apartment was perfect; it was clean and bright and had everything we needed. Gordon and Lynn's communication and hospitality was warm and helpful. We loved the proximity to the beach and the village. Everyone in the complex was friendly and chatty. A very very special slice of paradise. Loved every minute.


We loved our stay at Gordon's place in Sumner. It's modern, clean and conveniently located next to shops and cafes. It's right next to the beach and away from the hustle and bustle of the cbd area. Communications were great throughout, I would love to come back one day!


This apartment is so nice, as we all have a great night. Decoration style is so fashion as you can see on the picture. The view is beautiful around the house.


Brea and I cannot say enough good things about our stay. Tremendous hosts, great location, and exactly what we needed to cap off our trip to New Zealand. The apartment was lovely and had all the things we needed for a comfortable stay. Wonderful food options in the area, slow and easy - quite a relaxing spot!


This was our 2nd year staying at the Sumner apartments and we love them. They are great apartments in a fantastic location and perfect for when we visit our family in Christchurch. Lyn and Gordon make everything easy and they are both a pleasure to deal with.


Sunny and modern rooms, with view to the sea and beach from living room and one of the bedrooms. Fully functioned Kitchen. Just 5 minutes to the Sumner beach. Very nice host and give us all helps We need in a temporary booking. Highly recommend.


We loved staying here is Sumner. Perfect setting. Apartment was also perfect for us, Mum, Dad, Adult child and Puppy, Pippi. Beach was so handy also. We enjoyed the proximity of the Cafes and the variety. Having a movie theatre within walking distance was great also. The apartment was clean, immaculate and easy access. Although our car was too big for the carpark, it was there. Many thanks, highly recommend
