Looking out the window is like having front row seats to the beautiful view of Akaroa harbour! The studio is wonderfully comfortable, cosy, clean and smartly laid out, and I think we had the best sleep here of our 2 weeks holiday. We appreciated all the thoughtful details and personal touches put into the design and comprehensive amenities; the pride that John and Jenny take in providing hospitality really shines through this lovely little studio.
An extraordinarily quiet place to stay with an amazing view across the water, perfect for a restful break. The unit itself is quite small, but John and Jenny very warmly invited us to sit on their large deck for as long as we wished. The decor is thoughtful, the unit is neat and clean, and the home-made biscuits were fabulous. The only cooking equipment is a microwave, but it is a small kitchen so that is appropriate. Very good shower and comfy bed. Thank you!
As said before it has a stunning view over the bay and is very well equipped with any imaginable item, all of high quality. The ensuite is well designed and comfortable and the kitchenette is small but functional, again filled with quality items. We had two days of rain and the living space of the apartment is in such a situation on the small side. The property is out of the business of the village but not too far to go to for a short visit.
