This fantastic large holiday home is surrounding by native bush and has stunning views right across the valley. It is on a private lane so is quiet and peaceful and has everything you need for a relaxing and enjoyable stay in the beautiful township of Akaroa. The house is super spacious so is ideal for several families or friends to holiday together. A HUGE deck is perfect for summer with a large fire making it a great choice year round! It is just a short 5 minute bush walk through a forest reserve down into the township for coffee or drinks at the pub and also to the skatepark, boat ramp, tennis courts, playground and mini golf for the kids and whole family to enjoy. Note - it is an easier walk down to town than back up, but we have found kids and adults alike will manage :)

Plenty of off street parking for cars and even a boat which can be hard to find in Akaroa! Also includes a double garage & basement storage space with internal staircase access into the house for all the toys.

A huge open plan living and kitchen area downstairs as well as a kids lounge/playroom in the kids bedroom upstairs means there is plenty of space for everyone to chill out and do their own thing, making this the perfect house for all to relax in!

  • This house was perfect for a holiday with friends

    This house was perfect for a holiday with friends. The kids loved having their own space upstairs and all sharing a room. We had a lovely relaxing time despite the weather :) The only downside was that the hot water ran out after morning showers and didn't heat up during the day so the kids didn't get a bath at night and also there was no coffee plunger ( a small thing but I have never stayed in a holiday home that does not have one ) .

    Thanks for your feedback, we really appreciate it. I have now changed the hot water power setting over so there will be hot water throughout the day and we have purchased a plunger to take over next time we go. Thanks again!

  • This house was perfect

    This house was perfect . It was warm, comfy well situated and extremely well resourced! I hope the neighbours didn't mind our singing. We were a group of middle aged ladies who get together twice a year for a catch up and a few laughs. We loved the bell birds and the tuis! what a sound to wake up to! We would definitely stay here again and would recommend this to others. Thank you for the use of your home. Sorry I didn't leave the keys in the correct place, I forgot to take the instructions!

    It's great to hear you had such a good time - every time we stay we are out on the deck singing and laughing too so I think the neighbours will be used to that! We also love the birdlife too - its a special place, you are welcome back anytime!

  • This is a great property if you have small children

    This is a great property if you have small children. The availability of toys and child-friendly furniture made it very easy to keep the two-year-olds happy. Very comfortable beds and good room configurations.
