Will keep in touch

What area should we stay
Popped this in the right thread for ya.

I am looking into a house in Akaroa which is near Wainui and some other sites. It is work's holiday home and is $50NZ a night and has 5 bedrooms. Only catch is I have to stay there as well. I'm trying to find a way around it.

It is up to you guys as to what you want to do. I'm sure you will each have different wants. I can make suggestions as I have done previous in this thread.

Staying anywhere in Christchurch would be fine. It is a small city in comparison to Aus cities and especially anything in the US!

Oh and Google is a great way to find search engines for accommodation is a particular place etc. I will keep an eye out for deals etc.

I think I will try to take a week off at some point so we can all stay in the Akaroa House. Depends on what times people are coming to make it all line up

Sweet! Get the others off their Butts! It is an easy time of year to get away for most. It is further to go to bloody PERTH! AND probably cheaper

With return flights under $300 with 40kg of baggage you can't go wrong.

And for those who travel with the other half $109 to christchurch and $65 on the return (with carry on)
