A family orientated, simple kiwi holiday home situated on a flat sunny fully fenced section. Located in a quiet historic area with flat drive on access. For the children and pets it is located just down from the Garden of Tane bush reserve and play ground and also is very close to the local area school grounds.

This property is in within 3 minute’s walk 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 cheap and cheerful stay

    A cheap and cheerful stay. Our 2 year old particularly appreciated another whole set of toys to play with. We struck a cold couple of nights and despite having the heat pump going 24/7 we found it was hard to keep the house warm. We were disappointed that despite advertising it was fully fenced and suitable for small dogs, the gate did not meet the fence and left a large gap that our small dog (and potentially our toddler) could easily slip through.
