  • Beautifully restored historic cottage
  • Fantastic location
  • A short stroll into the centre of Akaroa village

The Kearney-Rhodes house dates from 1867 and is a listed Akaroa Historic Building and

is in the final stages of a four year restoration. This large house with sheltered sunny garden has

been superbly finished to reflect it's age. Time spent here will provide peace and transport you into

the unhurried world of Akaroa's historic past.

Located in one of Akaroa's central streets in what originally was the 'French' end of town, you will be three

minutes walk from the beach, bank, post office, museum, Four Square and some of the finest restaurants

Canterbury has to offer.

Another ten minutes walk or short drive will take you to the 'English' end of Akaroa and cinema, library, school,

Gaiety Theatre, wharf and motels.

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...

Special conditions: Sorry no smoking nor pets. Please provide your own linen. Linen hire can be arranged prior to your stay. Children welcome.

  • Good location able to walk to local amenities

    Good location able to walk to local amenities. Unfortunately this was out weighted by no sheets/ towels or hotwater! Would not recommend.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Akaroa as the property was so close to everything. The house itself is a work of art! The place had everything you need to make your stay comfortable and give you the feeling of being home.

  • The location was perfect

    The location was perfect. We parked our cars and didn't move them again until we were leaving. We also liked the character of the house. It's old fashioned but beautiful.
