  • Peaceful and Private

Immaculately presented and well furnished with a touch of French Country, this two bedroom cottage is set in tranquil private surroundings with a pretty cottage style garden, and adjacent bush alive with native birds.

A charming sunny holiday home tucked up a private right-of-way with views of the harbour, it is ideal for that special time away.

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.

    Beautiful house and lovely location, lots of beautiful bird song and very pleasant outdoor spaces. Had trouble finding the access road to the house- would be helpful to be given a bit of detail as to which access road to take when you get to the end of Rue Cachalot as there are about 4 different choices and no indication as to which one to take.

    An extremely well maintained, even doted on, holiday home that we loved staying at. Being on the fringe of town, it is well elevated so has beautiful views. Its a good hike back up the hill, if you walk into town, and therefore also a lovely wee bit of exercise. We'd thoroughly recommend staying here and would love to do so again ourselves when we next return to Akaroa.

  • Fantastic Bach

    Fantastic Bach. Very well loved. The birdlife, especially Bellbirds ,was a joy and an additional bonus.
