Timber style home on an elevated site just up and above the Glen Bay offering stunning views from the open plan living area, main bedroom and the generous sized deck. Bush reserve boundary, a private path down to beach road and the sea and the centre of Akaroa Village and all it has to offer just an easy 10 minute stroll away.

Tourist activities include both dolphin watching and swimming with dolphins, guided kayaking, fishing and swimming, hiking, walks and a relaxed village around which you can just stroll and enjoy the views, the people, the atmosphere...

There’s a good children’s playground if travelling with children, beaches for playing in and a pleasant drive by car to the outer bays of the Peninsula will find some of the best unspoilt beaches in Canterbury. Banks Peninsula even has a couple of hidden surfing spots which are world renown. The village also boasts a decent sized supermarket, many cafes, and a host of wonderful restaurants.
