– an accommodation complex like no other

From an idea conceived in absurdity, to inspired moments by the F3 Design Team, clever design is evident in all aspects of the SiloStay story.

In your Silo we aim to provide a welcoming and embracing experience that nourishes mind, body and spirit. This approach to accommodation reflects the importance of time out, surrounded by a physical environment that suggest a slow down; a glimpse into the extraordinary in an ordinary little country town. The slow down is an essential part of lifes balance that should not preclude difference and extremes, but puts them in calm context.

Listen to the stars, look at the wind rustle the air, and then be brave.  Welcome the gift of time and reflect from your Silococoon.

The first floor is equipped with a custom fitted kitchenette for all cooking needs, a relaxed seating area, toilet and external balcony. The stylish and luxurious upper floor bedroom, bathroom & balcony are accessed via a sculptural steel staircase.

Built for the discerning traveller – awarded 4+ stars by Qualmark – each unit has a wall mounted flat screen TV; satellite channels; DVD player; bed head mounted stereo/CD/iPod/MP3; and broadband internet.

SiloStay has been designed and built using innovative eco-friendly systems. Wool is the insulation of choice – under floor, in the walls and in the ceiling. Wood pellets, a waste by-product of timber production is used to heat the units in winter. Passive cooling in summer means simply open the hatch at the top of silo. Even the waste water system is planet friendly – ‘Biolytix’. The BioPod harnesses the energy in the waste (including the sewage, toilet paper and food waste) to nourish the worms that break down the waste. Nothing is wasted. All the atmospheric lighting, both within individual silos and the external boardwalks are LED.

Located in the heart of Little River, on State Highway 75, adjacent to the Christchurch – Little River Rail Trail. Just 50 minutes from Christchurch city and the International Airport, and en-route to picturesque Akaroa. Little River – gateway to the world renowned and beautiful Banks Peninsula.

Clientele will appreciate the ability to house their bike or kayak on the specially designed hanging rack. Cyclists will enjoy the prime location, adjacent to the Christchurch to Little River Rail Trail.

Stay somewhere unique – enjoy the eco-friendly SiloStay Accommodation experience, and explore the beauty of the rugged landscape of the Banks Peninsula region.

“Thank you for a lovely stay. We were blown away by the interior design when we walked in after having seen them many times in passing and wondering what they’d be like. Surpassed our imagination. Loved the space station-esque roof, heated towel rail, staircase, taps and kitchen drawers.  Thanks :)” – C & B, Christchurch (16/02/15)

“I can’t believe we were so stupid to have booked this.  We must have been mad.  What were we thinking….ONLY ONE NIGHT?!?!  I’ll admit I was dubious about the lack of windows and if I’d feel claustrophobic.  Blown away by the interior design and sense of space.  Innovative, fun – stunning.  Thanks for the complimentary bottle of Valentine champagne and the voucher to come back.  We definitely will.  We learned from our mistake!!” – A & J, Australia (15/02/15)

“Like living in a work of art!  Verrrry cool!  Attention to details is incredible…especially loved the toilet basin/cistern filling set up and the way the heated towel rail worked.  Will be telling everyone about your amazing place!! – H & D, Timaru (17/11/14)

“To the manager/owner/cleaner/any other staff of the SiloStay, what a fantastic place you have created here!  We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can’t wait to come back!  Amazing service, and the finishing touches such as the ciabatta & the yummy chocolates finished it off!  We loved how you have fully succeeded in making an industrial styled space feel welcoming and homely as well!  This design is inspiring & it was a refreshing experience to stay here.  We also loved the eco friendly and fair trade touches.  They add an element of care to the complex which is much appreciated.  Thank you so much, and see you again soon!” – Sara (11/09/15)
