Fabulous sea views across the harbour, sun drenched decking areas, private bush setting and easy walking distance to Akaroa's superb cafes and restaurants. This well equipped, modern holiday home has had a recent refurbishment and is presented sparkling clean and quite special. Free wifi is provided for guests in the house.

The house is all on one level and is elevated for the sea views. An easy set of steps leads from the driveway parking to the house. The sea view can be enjoyed from the living area as well as from both of the double bedrooms. A substantial wrap around deck means that there are plenty of places for alfresco meals or a glass of wine. Enjoy a coffee on the front open deck or under the shaded verandah and watch the boat traffic and comings and goings of the town. Or pull up a chair and relax in total seclusion on the sunny deck at the rear of the property to read a book.

A new 'Broil King' hooded BBQ has been added to the outdoor dining space - with a built in thermostat this BBQ can be used as a conventional BBQ or as an outdoor oven to bake a homemade pizza or roast a juicy chicken or leg of pork.

Inside, the stylish living/dining room has a Sony flat screen television with freeview satellite TV, as well as good lighting for reading. A big 8kw Daikin heat pump and a double layer of insulation in the ceiling will keep you warm and cosy in the winter as well as cooler in the summer.The kitchen is well equipped and is well lit and bright. The bathroom has been completely updated and has a wall mounted fan heater. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed and the second bedroom has a double bed. Both bedrooms are a perfect retreat for guests, with good quality beds. A convenient laundry and utility area adjoins the back door. All areas are super clean and light and bright.

  • Elevated with great views from deck

    Elevated with great views from deck. Easy access into Akaroa township...10-15 minutes casual walk. Interior was very comfortable (heat pump on cooling provided relief on what was 30deg days). All the usual facilities, all in good order. Drive access climbs from road but no trouble for my standard vehicle. Parking limited (Shared with neighbor) but adequate. Not easy to turn round so either back up or back down.....I had no difficulties

  • The property is in a great location & affords beautiful, elevated views...

    The property is in a great location & affords beautiful, elevated views to the harbour. The house is meticulously maintained & absolutely spotless which is a credit to John & Belinda. It'd be even better if a parking bay could be made & if the key could be left in a lockbox on site. Thank you for sharing your fabulous holiday home with us! ??
