Overview

Photos and Description of this Akaroa holiday house

Elevated 3 bedroom home immaculately presented and well-appointed with quality chattels. Sited in a sheltered sunny garden setting and with its spacious open plan living area plus separate living room it offers a truly relaxing and beautiful holiday. Beautiful views of town, harbour and hills are enjoyed from the deck, living areas and main bedroom.

Only approx. 5 minutes? walk down to the centre of the village of Akaroa and all it offers, and is well suited to those wanting to explore the beautiful Bank Peninsula region.

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. The safe bay also offer great walks and hikes, along with boutique shopping, galleries, wineries and the famous Barry Point cheese factory.

The house is very spacious and has many of the things that a family would require for a stay however

  • 3 of 5

The house is very spacious and has many of the things that a family would require for a stay however the heating of rooms was insufficient with one heat pump trying to warm a large area and that left the bedrooms very cold throughout the day and night. It was a little disappointing to have to make our own beds when we had paid additional fees for linen and cleaning. Total lack of broadband access was also a concern for us, especially as the weather meant we were inside most of the time.

Owner's Response: Hi just to let you know the linen fees is just for the hireage option only unless stated. For the future when looking for properties please select the home facilities and extras that the home may or may not have . This property does not have broadband. I am sorry this home usually does have a fire place, but is out of order due to a new part on back order.
