well equipped apartment close to the beach

Pros: location, close to the beach and that we had everything we needed for our stay.
Cons: fittings starting to look a little tired and worn
Location: short walk to the beach great for swimming and walking along the beach but it is a drive to any shops.
no sea view with ground floor apartment but nice and private. Well situated for the beach with a short walk down the driveway and across the road.

Visiting friends

Great place to use as a base when in Christchurch. Close to the sea, and a short drive into the city itself.

Upon reflection I should have gone with my second option. Was an ok apartment- had the facilities we required, however was not the nicest location for our last few days on holiday, and the apartment was looking very tired, in need of some love, a lick of paint and maintenance. Staff were very welcoming, place very secure, and great location for access to city, beach, shopping mall.
