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!

  • Thank you so much

    Thank you so much. Well exceeded our expectations and we are already talking about our next stay. Great place for kids - they had a ball all sleeping together in the same room. Would not hesitate to recommend to all. Looking forward to our next stay. Hopefully the sun will shine for us next time!

  • We absolutely loved this property

    We absolutely loved this property. It was a great place to bring all of the family together with ample room. The front deck was so lovely with the afternoon sun and swing chair and there were plenty of dvds for the kids to watch. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to come back in the future.
