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

 The bach was lovely for our family of five - well set up, with a great kitchen garden. It's quite arty and stylish, gets great sun and is well appointed with everything you might need for a pleasant stay. Some people might be put off by the bach-like shower which is not tiled but has a concrete floor, but we thought it just added to the house's quaint overall charm. Akaroa is a superb destination and this house provides a great base from which to explore the village. 

 Great location, very comfortable 

 The Bach itself is a charming retro house in a lovely garden. However, the bunk room was another matter. It is the smallest bunk room I have ever seen, it would be unpleasant to try to get four adults in this room, I would even hesitate to have four children in the room. I don't think it is a house for eight people, four adults and maybe two children at the most. 

  •  Grandads Bach is exactly that- a bach. The third bedroom is a bunk room- 2 sets of bunks, a sleeping room.

 Great quiet location, with gentle walk to main interest areas, plus bach facilities/ambience excellent 

 What would there possibly be to complain about - open the car door - greeted by bird song, lush surroundings and a property that is both absolutely charming and stylish. We had a wonderfully relaxing and chilled weekend - great amenities and spaces for everyone and a calm and quiet setting. We appreciated and enjoyed being able to cook great meals. The hammock is great! Congrats on presenting this property so beautifully. We look forward to returning.
