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.

  • A gorgeous cottage in a beautiful location, we loved our stay

    A gorgeous cottage in a beautiful location, we loved our stay. While the front fence provides security, it doesn't add to privacy, therefore, I would suggest it be removed or halved in height, as that view is to good to miss any of it. Thank you so much for sharing your little paradise

  • A little bit farther away from the main part of the village

    A little bit farther away from the main part of the village. We have a baby so walking was a little bit of a issue. But it is only 2 min by car. The house is an old house, but warm with a good heat pump. The fruit trees were awesome, mandarins and limes, our baby love to pick up the fruit
