WE WANT TO SHARE OUR FAVOURITE SPOT!! Our bach has an amazing elevated view over looking Akaroa harbour, Akaroa township and the surrounding hills. Situated on a quiet street relax on one of our decks and listen to the array of native bird life that frequent the area or enjoy a 10 minute walk to Akaroa central that has many of activities including swimming with the dolphins, wildlife cruises, fishing charters, mini golf, paddle boarding, kayaking and many walks.

Akaroa has many top draw restaurants and cafes as well as several quirky gift shops or if you prefer simply stroll the beach line taking in the relaxed atmosphere Akaroa has to offer. The house has a large light open plan living/dining area leading onto an upstairs deck. The bedrooms comprise of two double bedrooms and a third bedroom containing 2 bunks, a double and a single bed. The decor is a bit stuck in the 1970s, but on the upside it has a proper bach feel and the views more than make up for the not very modern interior!

  • We stayed for two nights with two families

    We stayed for two nights with two families. Lots of room and the great views made up for the tired carpets and kitchen floors. Super location and outdoor space so we would happily return.

  • The photos really don't do this house any justice

    The photos really don't do this house any justice. When I arrived i was amazed at how big & beautiful this house was, let alone the insane view from all the balconies!!! Would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a nice house for a weekend in Akaroa :)

  • We loved our stay in Akaroa with 4 adults and 6 kids

    We loved our stay in Akaroa with 4 adults and 6 kids. The house is as described in the blurb - it has a somewhat dated feel about the place and the driveway is quite steep to park on in wintery conditions. Views are stunning and the place warmed up nicely without using the fireplace which was a bonus in July! We cooked a roast for 10 people in the kitchen - everything we needed was there and plenty of room to sit and eat it also. Would stay again next time we are in Akaroa. Thanks Tony!

  • I love this house

    I love this house. My friends and I stayed here last year aswell and may make an annual trip out of it. The views are breathtaking and its a joy to have a fire place. The kitchen and living is very basic but has all the essentials. Great get away location

    Fantastic view and location! It does not get 5 stars because although there are beds for 11 people, the house is not equipped for 11 people. If you have meals inside you can only seat maximum 8 people around the table. Also, it was not very clean when we arrived. Despite this we really enjoyed our stay and would love to come back and would definitely recommend it to others.
