Perched in the bush and only 30 metres from the sea, this cosy split-level house offers a peaceful relaxing setting, complemented by a large deck and a great view. This property is an original bach and offers great value and a simple holiday experience.

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.

  • What a fantastical place this is

    What a fantastical place this is. It made no difference that for the first two days of our stay here it rained constantly and the sky was grey and gloomy! The Bach is well equipped for cosy nights in -we found an abundance of games with which to amuse ourselves. Then the sun came out and the view from the deck was just fairy tale wondrous!! Perched up in the trees overlooking The bay. Thank you so much - we'll be back.

  • Such a beautiful location

    Such a beautiful location. Its a pity that more care isn't taken to create more comfortable and enjoyable experience. Only two toilet rolls were provided for the whole four days for four people. No proper sofa - just a bed as a sofa. No TV. No board games. No coat hangers. We paid for cleaning, but the BBQ was not cleaned out for us. The blind in the one bedroom did not work and the other bedroom had no blinds or curtains. Despite all this we had a lovely time.

  • The property was as expected - a good Kiwi bach

    The property was as expected - a good Kiwi bach. One small suggestion - some coat-hangers would be really helpful.
