One of Akaroa's premier locations, on the waterfront, and offering stunning views of the harbour. Comfortably appointed home located in the heart of The Glen Bay with the sea just across the road it offers a stunning outlook over the moored yachts across the harbour. Positioned to capture the sun and views which can be enjoyed from the open plan living areas, deck and main bedroom.

This property is in within 5 minutes 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.

  • House is in a great quiet location and has an amazing view

    House is in a great quiet location and has an amazing view. Great to be so close to the water and we could use our paddle boards easily. House is basic, no extras like glad wrap, tin foil etc so take your own.

  • Lovely living area, balcony and views of Akaroa harbour

    Lovely living area, balcony and views of Akaroa harbour. The bathroom and toilet were tired, and corners not cleaned well. Walking distance to town etc was good.

  • Loved the wee house

    Loved the wee house. Also liked being down the quiet end of town and able to walk across the road to swim from the beach where almost no one else was around. Beautiful views. House is dated but priced appropriately. Opening the back and front doors allowed us to keep it cool when it was 31 degrees outside. Good off road parking could fit 4 cars if needed. Nice deck and seating. Need to remember to bring everything from sheets to toilet paper to oil and salt and pepper. I would book again.
