This property is in within 15 minutes easy flat stroll or 2 minutes’ drive 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.

    Gorgeous cute cottage, very clean comfortable and all mod cons. Wonderful seaside location and enjoyed the quiet of being slightly out of town

  • This is the ?th time we've stayed at Glen Cottage

    This is the ?th time we've stayed at Glen Cottage. Our favourite place to stay in Akaroa. Unfortunately it rained for the whole 4 days we were there! Still loved it though and will be back!

  • Peaceful and views

    Peaceful and views. Great cottage. Have already booked again. If you want tranquility and rest the location is great - just far enough out of the central hub.
