Romantic, rustic Shepherds Hut on 850 acre farm in the beautiful Takamatua Valley. Only minutes by car from the historic French village of Akaroa with its many cafes, restaurants,shops and water activities. Walk the hills strewn with native trees and bush, stunning views out to sea, abundant birdlife, waterfall and creeks. The Hut is private yet close to historic farmhouse built in 1898 for the Mora family. The Shepherds hut has been restored with modern comforts, but retaining all the charm of yesteryear.

Out door Bath and shower ( with hot running water) on secluded deck. Breakfast Hamper included. BBQ and Microwave.

    As others said very well in previous reviews, this is an absolutely perfect spot for a romantic break from reality. What you can't see from the photos is the native bush surrounding the front of the hut with a picturesque stream running at its feet. The feeling of seclusion, privacy and calm is amazing. The many little details with the decor and supplies make it extra special. We want to come back every week!!
