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.

  • House was very clean and tidy

    House was very clean and tidy. Lovely views of valley and hills. Plenty of space and house worked well for our 6 adults family group. Great to have air con in house as it was a very hot weekend. Walk through L'Aube reserve recommended to get up and down the hill.

  • Location is lovely and quiet with nice views of the valley, but...

    Location is lovely and quiet with nice views of the valley, but it is up a very steep drive away from the main Akaroa streets so walking to and from the bach with children is too difficult
