Description

Old French Road will provide a lovely getaway. It is comfortable and homely whilst retaining its original bach character with wooden floors, mix and match furniture and knick knacks noone is quite ready to throw out.

Its sunny position overlooked by an old walnut tree and surrounded by roses, grape vines and natives is a lovely spot to grab a book and some time with friends and family.

Less than 2 minutes away the water to paddle in (when its not mudflats), the stream to do white-baiting and just a little further away a jetty to jump from. Within a short 3km drive you can enjoy the cafes, restaurants, galleries and boutique shops of Akaroa.

Whether it be a summer of sunshine enjoying BBQs outside on the lawn or tucked up warm and cosy in front of the open fire (or heat pump) after sunset in winter this bach will let you get away from it all.

There is a new deck with seating and dining table out the back which is great for catching the early sun and a couple of chairs on the front deck, perfect for sipping a wine or gin in.

The shower pressure is great after a new hot water cylinder has been put in, so you are good to go.

*Smoking only allowed outside and butts to be collected.

*Family pets ok with prior approval - you must bring a bed for them and they are not to be on the beds or furniture. It is fully fenced.

  • The cottage is nicely furnished and well equipped

    The cottage is nicely furnished and well equipped. Appreciated the nice linen. Decks front and back are sun traps and lovely for el fresco dining. It does not have a sea view but close to the waterfront. A great location for exploring all that Banks Peninsula has to offer. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

  • We loved this place

    We loved this place. So peaceful and away from the hustle and bustle of Akaroa but still so close. Beautifully decorated, very charming and well equipped. We'll definitely be back!
