This tidy and well maintained holiday home is an absolute gem. Fanastic flow from a large kitchen, dining and lounge area onto a spacious and sunny deck. Exceptional views over the harbour.

Although up and away from the hussle and bussle of the village centre, this property is still just a 10 minute stroll down into Akaroa town.

A new BBQ and great outdoor funiture means you will spend most of your time sunning on and enjoying the views from the deck.

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.

    View is amazing and great lounge/dining and deck area (although could have an umbrella for shade). The doors in the rooms need to be fixed though, one couldn't be moved from open position because of carpet, bathroom lock didn't work and single room we got locked in because no door handle! Bathroom could do with hooks for towels and actually needs an upgrade. Pleasant place tho, great main room for Xmas.
