Delightful immaculate, sunny, timber style home, located in a private right of way . Spacious open plan kitchen/living area, opening out on to deck with pleasant outlook, some view of the sea and hills. This property is in within walking distance of the centre of the village of Akaroa and all it offers , and is well suited to those wanting to explore the beautiful Bank Peninsula region.

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.

    Good location. BUT Found the bed to be particularly hard. Niggly little things - have a washing machine but no pegs . Lacking in space to unpack / hang clothing.
