Large open plan holiday home on a sunny elevated section that has a nice bush outlook as well a valley and hill views. French Hill reserve on the boundary offering a pleasant short cut by walking down through native bush to village. The house is located at the end of a steep lane so it offers a nice peaceful and relaxing holiday stay.

This property is in within 10 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.

    Nice spot high up the hill. Floors were quite squeaky though.

    Nice house perched high up! Not too easy to find but it was worth the trek. Bonus Wi-Fi was a pleasant surprise and in general the house was perfect for our needs. Thank you!

  • Location is fantastic

    Location is fantastic. Trees and birds and a great view. Only a short walk through the bush to town. Some updated amentities like a new barbecue were fantastic. Deck area could be improved so it is more useable. A great place to stay. :o)
