We warmly invite you to stay at our Studio B and B in our modern home. A wonderfully relaxing place to stay with panoramic views of Akaroa harbor.

The Studio is attached to our house with a queen-bed, kitchenette and en-suite bathroom. It has its own separate entrance so come and go as you please.

    Coastal Studio is a great place to stay with beautiful views to Akaroa Bay. We took the chance to cruise around with Skipper Oli on a sunny day with a light breeze. Absolutely great.

    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!
