Balmerino – A tidy kiwi holiday home located on an elevated site offing a beautiful view of the harbour and town. Its handy location just on the edge of town puts it within easy walking distance to recreation ground, tennis courts, skate park and boat ramp. Here you will also find a nice sandy beach perfect for launching kayaks, jet skis and exercising the dogs. Access to the house is up a stepped shingle path from the car park area.

This property is in within 4 minutes’ 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.

Special conditions: Small Dogs Only Driveway has loose shingle on it which may cause issues to non-four wheel drive vehicles when towing a trailer. There is a walk up from carpark area to the house approx. 15 metres
