A warm and sunny architecturally designed split level home with open plan living that flows out onto decked areas and down to a pleasantly secluded garden courtyard. Wonderful panoramic views of the sea and surrounding hills.

The upper floor consists of a fully equipped kitchen, pleasant breakfast area, comfortable lounge, mezzanine dining room, shower room en suite, spacious bedroom with access onto a private balcony and shower room en suite. A comfortable foldout double bed is also available.

The lower floor consists of a completely self contained flat with queen size bed, shower room, fully equipped kitchen, dining area, lounge and direct level access onto a garden patio with barbeque. A comfortable foldout double bed is also available.

Short 5 minute walk down to 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.

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.

  • This is a particularly well-appointed holiday home

    This is a particularly well-appointed holiday home. It was a pleasure to stay -- the architecture is lovely, the location is convenient, the views are great. It was very nice to stay somewhere so well-equipped, with high-quality appliances and kitchen equipment. It would work well for an inter-generational rental, since the lower bedroom has a sitting room, a small bathroom, and a kitchen.
