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.

  • Great location near enough to walk to town but far enough away...

    Great location near enough to walk to town but far enough away to avoid the hustle. Great wee place.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at Glen cottage

    We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at Glen cottage. Beautifully appointed clean and cosy character cottage. Incredible views from the front rooms and verandah. Immediately felt relaxed and at home. Everything we needed was on hand.

  • A perfectly beautiful location, quiet and restful with lovely outlook

    A perfectly beautiful location, quiet and restful with lovely outlook. We were greeted by the chime of bellbirds and watched from the porch as quail ran across the front lawn. We were also very fortunate in seeing a couple of Hector Dolphins broach amongst the mooring buoys in the harbour just across the road! The cottage had everything we needed; loved the decor - some nice modern/retro furniture fabrics have been cleverly added to a very old cottage without losing that special Kiwi Bach feel.

  • A lovely location away from the bussle of Akaroa

    A lovely location away from the bussle of Akaroa. Nice traditional bach and all the facilities you need for a relaxing break. Seeing dolphins from the balacony each day was one of the highlights!
