Picture yourself spending a romantic getaway at this peacefully positioned cottage, where surrounding bush, native birds and expansive views are perfectly paired with a bright and spacious place to call home. Welcome to Woodside!

A classic cottage with all the modcons, Woodside is equipped with USB and wireless charging points. Beautifully decorated, this studio style cottage is thoughtfully furnished to offer both comfort and convenience, perfect for those moments when you just want to snuggle up on the couch and watch your favourite show on the Smart TV. On a winter getaway, light the wood burning fireplace for extra cosy ambience.

Lay out a charcuterie board with some of the fresh Akaroa smoked salmon you picked up in town, then make the most of the seamless indoor-outdoor flow through the French doors on to the deck. Here, a gorgeous backdrop makes raising a glass to being on holiday even better, then later fire up the BBQ for a delicious dinner as the sun goes down.

You're sure to get a good night's rest in the luxurious king size bed here at Woodside. A generous bathroom complete with two-person spa bath completes the set up for your romantic Akaroa retreat.

Set out for the day to explore what this picturesque slice of paradise has to offer. Pack a picnic and drive just two minutes or walk down the private walkway to Childrens Bay for a relaxing afternoon and a swim, or head just four minutes in the other direction to Takamatua Bay.

If you’re a keen golfer, the Akaroa Golf Club is a 10-minute drive north. Or, just five minutes' drive south will find you in the heart of the Akaroa Harbour township, where you can immerse yourself in the French history of the area with it's boutique shopping and world-class eateries, not to mention the activities and wildlife spotting opportunities on offer.

For an idyllic spot to whisk the one you love away to, look no further than Woodside!

Fantastic place , cosy , warm , private . Bed is so comfortable. It was raining while we were there so we had the fire on and a good scary movie . It was perfect . Thanks to Nick at Bachcare on the phone for organising linen and towels that I forgot to book . I think you should add the linen etc and up the cost .. nothing worse than forgetting linen and towels

What a beautiful cottage in such a peaceful and private spot. We absolutely loved our stay. Such a perfect place to relax and reset. Woodside has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The fire was so warm, a very comfortable king size bed, a lovely spa bath and all the amenities you would ever need. The tui and birdsong were incredible. Thank you for such a wonderful stay. We will definitely be back!
