An original no frills Kiwi bach with direct access to the sea. The views are amazing and expansive taking in the harbour and township of Akaroa. Great indoor /outdoor flow to spacious deck from this comfortable but modest property and you are welcome to bring pets.

All this situated a 10 – 15 minute stroll into the village yet miles away for peace, relaxation and time out.

Tourist activities include both dolphin watching and swimming with dolphins, guided kayaking, fishing and swimming, hiking, walks and a relaxed village around which you can just stroll and enjoy the views, the people, the atmosphere...

There’s a good children’s playground if travelling with children, beaches for playing in and a pleasant drive by car to the outer bays of the Peninsula will find some of the best unspoilt beaches in Canterbury. Banks Peninsula even has a couple of hidden surfing spots which are world renown. The village also boasts a decent sized supermarket, many cafes, and a host of wonderful restaurants. The safe bay also offer great walks and hikes, along with boutique shopping, galleries, wineries and the famous Barry Point cheese factory.

Akaroa is 1,5 hours from Christchurch city, and has a regular mini-bus service operating between Christchurch City, and both the International and Domestic airports if you’re arriving from another city.

Special conditions: Please note the bedrooms and bathroom are accessed externally from living area. Please bring your own drinking water as the water is from the local stream. A couple of large swabs are in the games room could be used for mattress.

  • This bach has a spectacular view from the spacious lounge and deck

    This bach has a spectacular view from the spacious lounge and deck. The bush setting and bird life are very pleasant (bellbirds, wood pigeons etc). The bach was warm and had everything we needed except a laundry. These positives helped make up for the maintenance issues (leaking guttering meant a wet dash to the bathroom, shower pressure low and some doors very hard to open). But overall a very enjoyable stay.
