Tranquil Retreat, Sea Views,Bush,Birdsong

 Beautiful views of Akaroa and the harbour from a modern and well appointed set of rooms ( can be split to suit different visitor numbers ) . Very friendly , quiet Golden Labradors ( mum & daughter ) keen to say hello , toys for youngsters. Only hiccup was one TV system didn't work but we didn't go there to watch TV

 The property was exactly as described, being spotlessly clean and comfortable, with an incredible vista. Indeed, the location was excellent and we really enjoyed our stay. We look forward to returning and being able to stay longer.
