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!

    The property is absolutely amazing! The log burner kept us all warm in the snow. The house is very spacious and all of us had plenty of space to spread out. We had a great time! Thanks so much and we shall be back for summer!

  • Lovely holiday home

    Lovely holiday home. Was perfect for our ladies weekend and would suit 3 families holidaying together. Road and driveway very steep.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Great to hear you enjoyed your weekend away. Yes the road is very steep - we recommend walking to and from town via the bush walk in the backyard as its lovely and not as steep and tough on the legs! In saying that, if you have been down to town to have a few wines & it gets dark, then due to lack of light on the bush walk, its MUCH safer to brave the steep - but well lit road...I can vouch for that from experience! :)
