Grandads Bach was built by my grandparents in the late 1950's and has recently been upgraded to accommodate todays lifestyle. There is a well appointed kitchen opening up to the private rear courtyard.

The Master bedroom has its own french doors opening to a deck which takes advantage of the afternoon sun.

The lounge has an open fireplace.

It is an easy stroll down to the shops and main wharf.

There is good off street parking for cars and boat

 Great place to stay, awesome location and really clean and tidy. 

 Lovely quiet location. House was well equipped with some fun quirkiness to it. Very nice spot. 

 Handy conveniantly situated Bach. Very comfy bed. Lots of rhubarb in the garden. Slightly unusual key pick up arrangements but worked. Very comfortable for a break. So sad about the earthquake damage but will need the fire in the winter. 

 Nice quiet location only a few minutes walk into Akaroa 

 Nice and tidy Bach which has been well looked after. Cheers
