Akaroa Accommodation

Akaroa is a small town located near St. Helens and Stieglitz in the Break O'Day local government area 482 km from Melbourne. This area features all kinds of things to do from your Akaroa accommodation, from seeing the local water falls to checking out old mining areas, and from game fishing to surfing. You have tons of options available that you can access with ease from your rental home. When you want to get away from it all, Akaroa is a great place to do so.

Why Akaroa?

With Akaroa holiday rentals, you can stay in a great home that puts you right in the midst of this small town paradise. With access to amenities in nearby St. Helens, tons of beaches a short drive away and plenty of seclusion in the middle of eucalyptus covered hills. With tons of game fishing and access to beaches for every purpose within an easy distance, you can choose to lay back, choose to go out for a calm kayaking trip or try your hand at surfing in some of Tasmania's loveliest waters.

What Should You See And Do?

From the base of your East Coast accommodation, you can take hikes through all manner of areas. Travel to Steiglitz and visit the historic park or wander through endless trails along the peninsula. You can also check out the Parnella Heights Rec Reserve. You can even take the Elephant Pass near St. Mary's and travel a road that was built by convicts in the 1800s. Or you can have a picnic in the Bayview Picnic Area right in Akaroa. From Akaroa, you're a very short trip from a number of beaches that allow you to either experience the relative calm of Georges Bay or the rougher Tasman Sea.

Top Local Attractions

Traveling to the nearby mid-size town of St. Helens opens up a lot of fun options for you. For starters, you can have a great day on or near the water at O'Connors Beach. As well, you can do a lot of fishing in what is well-known as the game fishing capital of Tasmania. St. Helens hosts an annual Game Fishing Classic for a reason. As well, there is a lot to see if you enjoy scuba diving because of the large number of kelp forests and the caves underwater. If you enjoy history, travel to Binalong Bay and check out Eddystone Point and one of the oldest lighthouses still in operation in the area. If you love waterfalls, you should definitely check out St. Columbia Falls, which are the highest in the entire state.

Why Rentals?

From the base of an Akaroa rental home, you can live the way a local does and enjoy the area like you're just taking a series of day trips. Far from the stresses of a stereotypical holiday, this is your chance to live the small town lifestyle and get away from it all. You can just about see it all from a rental home.

Stunning Property and Hosts

5 of 5
We can not speak more highly of this amazing beach property. It was just perfect for our family of four plus guests. Facilities were superb with modern appliances and it was freshly renovated throughout. The views from the front rooms and balconies were superb - better than the pictures! Our hosts were amazing, welcomed us with lights on, champagne and choccies to start our stay - then even brought us supplies from St Helens! We were there for Christmas and could walk to the beach or relax in the enclosed grassy back yard. We also found some great bushwalks nearby to take in the magnificent views! We had a perfect Christmas break! ??

A fabulous house

5 of 5
Gull Cottage is a beautiful house. Home from home. The views are stunning, the kitchen is large, well equipped and easy to cook in and the beds are dreamily comfortable. St Helens felt to us well off the tourist route and all the better for it. The beaches on The Bay of Fires are to die for and don't miss Peron Beach. You'll feel like you're the first to discover it. Buy lobster or fish and chips from the Lobster Shack, go fishing with Michael for a great fun afternoon, stock up from the fantastic supermarket (better than most London ones!), and relax on the deck, if you're lucky together with the shy Wallaby. 5 nights not nearly enough. Wish we'd had much longer to enjoy. Thank you, Trish, for all your help before we arrived. We'd travel all that way to stay again. Perhaps we will!
