Good value for money tidy and well-kept holiday cottage. Private rear courtyard with secluded outdoor dining area. This cottage is approx. 100 metres from the main street and the centre of the village of Akaroa 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.

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: This Property has no off street parking.

  • A quaint, period cottage with good facilities

    A quaint, period cottage with good facilities. Cosy and warm with heating adequate for cool days and nights. In spite of comments from other users there was no sight or sound of rodents/ birds/ possums. Beds were cosy and gave us a good night's sleep. All in all we were very satisfied with our rental of the cottage which is situated so centrally.

  • A very pretty little cottage

    A very pretty little cottage. Loved the back garden and location to the waterfront, cafes and shops; we walked everywhere. Inside was very clean and also lovely just abit concerned about the mice/rodent noises we heard at nighttime. This made me very uncomfortable. I was abit disappointed about this, and thought I needed to mention it so you can fix this for future guests. However I loved having the church next door, that was a nice surprise.

    Thank you for your comments Eleanor. Pleased you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately with the gradual demolition of the old cottage next door there has been some activity. We have bait laid and the building has gone so this should do the job.
