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.

    Surrounded by native bush, the shepherds hut is the perfect way to unwind and restore. The private outdoor bath and walk to the nearby waterfall are a few of the highlights. I would highly recommend a weekend getaway to this tranquil piece of paradise.

    A heavenly spot that I wish I could return to again and again. A creatively decorated cozy space, with very comfy sofa, bed, table and chairs. Fresh flowers inside on the table and out on the tub. Loved cooking on the covered side deck on the fab BBQ that had a gas burner on the side. Fried up the eggs there and browned the sausage on the grill. There is NOT one single thing I would change about this charming, inviting space. Even the toilet around the back!

  • What a lovely setting

    What a lovely setting. Kathrine has created a little piece of magic at her Sherperds Hut. So peaceful and beautifully decorated with a everything provided. The outside bath is just the icing on the cake. Highly recommend staying there.
