    Hi there, I am arriving in Christchurch on Friday 6th December 2016 and require 2 nights accomodation before heading to Dunedin. Our only issue is that we are a group of two parents, a 4 year old and a 20month old child. Could we fit in your studio unit. It seems spacious enough to fit a crib plus I'd say the remaining three of us could share the double bed - wouldn't be first time!
