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.

  • The bottom bunk bed needs looking at

    The bottom bunk bed needs looking at. It dropped down and I found this was due to a very short screw with a bit of tape had been used to hold up the corner, I put in a bigger screw but could do with a proper repair. Cheers
