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.

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.

    Loved the property - very clean and comfortable - beds were great - had a lovely time on the deck watching the harbor boats - just a couple of safety issues with the large glass doors not having any marking on them (walked into them) and the railing on the deck does not meet the NZ Safety standards so I was surprised that it is legal to let this property to general public????I see this has been commented on quite a few times on the website and in the visitors book.
