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.

    We love this property, it gives us wonderful peace and tranquility with beautiful views. It is a place that we can relax and enjoy everything Akaroa has to offer. The house has everything you need - perhaps another heater for the spare bedroom might be helpful as it can get a little chilly. We love this house and will return again i'm sure.

    Loved our stay here, the fire and heat pump keep the property lovely and warm. Could possibly have done with an additional electric heater for the bedrooms but other than that this place was perfect for us. With a one year old son we found the property really safe, it was lovely to be able to enjoy the deck knowing he couldn't escape! We cannot wait to return thank you.
