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.

  • Tv was too small

    Tv was too small. House didn’t heat up well enough. Good location in town and was a nice wee cottage, kept tidy

  • Great location with walking distance to shops and the beach

    Great location with walking distance to shops and the beach. The beds are all comfortable with lots of extra bedding, The house was very musty when we arrived but luckily it was nice weather so we could give it a good airing.

  • Bach was well equipped and the beds were very comfortable

    Bach was well equipped and the beds were very comfortable. Good shower. Very close to everything so we could park the car and walk everywhere. Gorgeous wee courtyard garden which is currently being madeover. Loved all the wee handwritten notes left about the place by owner. My one suggestion would be that the owners provide at least one bedside lamp in the bedrooms. Would definitely stay there again.
