Had the most amazing weekend with my family at the Fantail Cottage in Akaroa. Tidy and cosy with the most beautiful views.

Lovely place, great views. Listening to the song birds is so relaxing

Stayed December 2021

great spot, very small two attached units that are comfortable enough.

This property was suitable for us as a family of four with our children sharing a queen bed (which they really enjoyed). As there are connected twin rooms with full amenities in each, would also really suit two couples. The BBQ and outdoor eating area was very good with lovely ocean views. Excellent proper blackout curtains was a massive plus when you have young children as so many places have window fixtures that are hopeless for afternoon naps or summer bed times. The setting is bush with the morning bird chorus loud and proud however, by the next morning we happily dozed off again and loved the bird spotting. A nice walk to Akaroa via Children's Bay which avoids the main road was also good. We really enjoyed the property and would stay again.

Great view and bird life on veranda make this property worth a stay!

Stayed August 2021

Lovely accommodation, warm on the cold winter days we stayed and felt cosy. Enjoyed the changing view, birds and nature all around, even saw a rabbit hop past the verandah.

Stayed June 2021

Fantail lodge was very well set up for our two families- it was great to have everything in our own room, including kitchen, heating, toilet and plenty of space for the little kiddies to run around. Thanks for the wonderful stay! Highly recommend

Stayed February 2021

Would thoroughly recommend this beautiful haven amongst the bush, with beautiful gardens and a wonderful sea view. So relaxing. The bird song was amazing and the cicadas superb. We even had a fantail fly into the house. Aptly named Fantail Cottage.

Stayed December 2020

A very special place. Value for money.
