The Villino at Cypress Ridge Estate

 This place is amazing, the perfect spot for a couple to have a private getaway. The views are stunning, the property is amazing. The best part is that Casita Miro is literally next door.

Akaroa Waterfront Apartment

 A lovely weekend with a very cute and close to everything apartment. We enjoyed the shower for two and the telescope to view the activity on the water. Highly recommend for a romantic get away for two. On still nights the music from the Harbar is loud on Saturday night if it is warm and the windows are open but you could always join them!! Easy walk to wharf and lighthouse. Spoilt for choice for cafes and restaurants. External getting a repaint and looking fantastic.
