Stunning views.

  • 2 of 5

Stunning views. However house was not suited to children or seniors, both of which were in our party. I underestimated the steps down to the house from the description. No safe off road parking, small living space and narrow Staircase to get to bedrooms. Would be great for young couple looking for romantic getaway as secluded and stunning views but in my opinion not suited to a family. We left a night early as was too stressful with the toddler and my mum who couldn't cope with the steps.

Was worth the hike just for the view.

  • 5 of 5

Was worth the hike just for the view. Didn't realise was so far from Akaroa, but wasn't a problem. Was a very relaxing place to be and the sheltered patio was ideal. Had a windy day but still managed to sit on the verandah. Would recommend for a quiet getaway, perfect for the couple that want to be alone. Sorry were no donkeys, love donkeys, have 2 of my own!
