  • Walking distance to best beach in Akaroa Harbour

A place to retreat to. Wake up to the sound of birds, open the bifold doors and take in amazing views of Akaroa Harbour, lounge on the sheltered patio, soak up the sun and do as little as you like or bounce out of bed, launch your boat, and head out to enjoy a day on the harbour. Set on 1.5 hectares, plenty of parking and great wash-down facility if you bring the boat. Short stroll to tennis courts and safe sandy beach. Great place to relax and enjoy a holiday with family and friends. House has been architecturally designed and is well equipped to a high standard so you can enjoy a hassle free holiday. Wainui is an hour and a quarter from Christchurch, 25 minutes from Akaroa township, 10 minutes from the popular French Farm Winery Wedding Venue, 15 minutes from the Duvauchelle Store & Cafe, Historic Duvauchelle Hotel & Akaroa Golf Club.

All linen provided, and all cleaning included in the price, so relax and enjoy a real holiday!

  • Loved the location and studios

    Loved the location and studios. we ate outside most meals but it could have been a bit crowded for the 6 adults if the weather was bad for the weekend .... Stunning birdlife, easy walking distance to Wainui beach-highly recommend
