Overview

Photos and Description of this Akaroa holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 6)

Elevated 3 bedroom home. Sited in an elevated sheltered sunny garden setting and with its spacious open plan living area offers a truly relaxing holiday. Beautiful views of town, harbour and hills are enjoyed from the deck, living areas and main bedroom.

Only approx. 8 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.

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

The house had plenty of living area, an excellent deck with BBQ and a fantastic view.

  • 3 of 5

The house had plenty of living area, an excellent deck with BBQ and a fantastic view. A pleasant stroll down to the town centre (5-10mins). Beds were very comfortable. Would stay there again although the driveway is a little tricky (could do with widening the entry area). My family enjoyed our stay.

Lovely house brilliant views and very well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house brilliant views and very well equipped. Someone else had criticised house for too many family photos, we disagree, they were appropriate and not OTT. Our concern was water: the first night the water was cold and we couldn't shower. (Next 2 nights it was a Chch city council issue and apparently common for Akaroa). So if you want to be on the hill with great views then you may have a compromise. Was not a reflection on this particular property, neighbours also had no water.

Owner's Response: We had trouble last weekend, and contacted CCC and they found that Contractors had left a valve in wrong position, all working well now with plenty of water. Thanks for your kind comments, Owners

cozy house.

  • 5 of 5

cozy house...close enough to town, but far enough for some peace and quiet. Incredible view from the deck, we would definitely go back!
