"Anne and Tony are excellent hosts. I felt as if I had known them for a long time. The welcome could not have been warmer and the accomodation was excellent as were the meals. A great place to stay in Christchurch."

Maurice Carmody, 16/11/2017

"Very much enjoyed the warm hospitality and excellent meals."

Lesley James, 10/02/2017

"We had a wonderful stay with Tony and Anne. We felt more like house guests than customers because they were frequently available to talk with us and share their insight and deep love for their wonderful country. I deliberately did not make detailed plans before arriving and the Fogarty's proved the wisdom of this strategy because they gave us great recommendations for things to do that we never would have thought of on our own. We would love to come and stay again."

Ralph and Pamela, 13/03/2016

"It's been said before in the previous reviews, welcoming, flexible to our needs, homely, pleasant, clean, helpful, good company. Tony and Anne obviously enjoy the hustle and bustle of visitors, and are adaptive to their needs. Thank you very much!"

"Great homestay. We were treated like family. Good food, very comfortable accommodation, with excellent value close to the University. Anne and Tony are very kind, welcoming and generous hosts. Our highest recommendation. Howard& Claire 20/04/2013."

Howard & Claire, 21/04/2013

"Our stay with Anne & Tony was very enjoyable and we were treated like family. Nothing was a problem to them, anything we needed we only had to ask.We found there home to be very comfortable and spotlessly clean and tidy.We would stay with them again and definately recommend them to others."

Graeme & Jane, 17/04/2013

James Davies, 16/03/2011

"Very friendly and helpful hosts. Excellent food."

Bryn & Jackie Griffiths, 08/09/2010

"We cherish our visits with Anne and Tony Fogarty. Our stays with them epitomize the homestay experience, and we stay with them when we arrive in and prepare to depart from NZ. We are very comfortable in their home and always feel welcome, like cousins visiting from America. They give wonderful advice and are generous with help. They have taken us to the train station for the Tranzalpine and to the Ellerslie Flower Festival so that we do not need to worry aboout parking. We recommend their homestay highly, especially to visitors new to NZ."

Pamela Nelson and Kit Olmsted, 16/03/2010

"For us Anne and Tony Fogarty run a homestay that is the gold standard among homestays. We have stayed with them for four years on our visits to NZ and truly feel at home with them. They are generous with their hospitality and with their knowledge. They even met us at the train station when we took the train to the west coast, allowed us to leave our rental car with them for the three days we were gone, and didn't mind that the train was horribly late. We enjoy sharing tea with them, their simple but nourishing breakfasts, the comfortable beds, the convenience of their lovely home. Their warm welcome sets the tone for each of our visits from the USA and their generous hospitality keeps us returning, to them and to NZ."

Pamela Nelson, 22/10/2009

Devin Catt, 17/07/2008

"I stayed here for two nights and had avery pleasant stay, everything was perfect, and the host, Anne and Tony, made me feel at home. I was really impressed with the high standard."

Rodney Wareing, 08/05/2008

"At a homestay with this lovely couple, I was made to feel like I had a home-away-from-home. They were friendly and warm and provided a friendly base for my trip, and included a wonderful breakfast every morning. Their location near the airport and only a short bus ride to town also makes this homestay ideal for the traveller without their own transport. Many thanks to Tony and Anne for their hospitality."

Toby Miller, 02/05/2008

Alec Rothwell, 29/01/2007

"I stayed with Anne and Tony Foggarty on the 10th November and found them to be most welcoming and congenial. I enjoyed sitting in their garden in the late afternoon discussing the latest goings on in the world. They were most obliging, helping me get to the airport the following afternoon. Thanks."

Guest Comment, 21/11/2006

R Henderson, 21/09/2006

"What a wonderful home to come home to - the kind Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz was referring to where she kept repeating "there's no place like..."! Full of warmth, wisdom and welcome - we felt blessed in our good fortune to stay here!"
