Finding your own little haven for relaxation won’t be a problem at this absolutely gorgeous Akaroa accommodation, where the gardens invoke a feeling of serenity and the harbour views take your breath away. Welcome to Rose on the Bay!

Spread across two levels and boasting four bedrooms, two bathrooms and great indoor and outdoor living, there’s ample space for everyone to come together at this family and pet friendly holiday home.

Natural light pours into this home through an abundance of picture windows, revealing lovely harbour views that make the perfect backdrop for a tranquil getaway. Three ranch sliders provide seamless indoor-outdoor flow on to the wrap around deck for fresh coastal air and fantastic alfresco dining, with a soundtrack of native birdsong.

The semi-open-plan living space will certainly become the hub of the home, furnished for comfort and equipped with a heat pump and ceiling fan for temperature control. A Smart TV with all the bells and whistles, and complimentary WiFi, are on hand for entertainment and connectivity, while a fully equipped kitchen, complete with a Nespresso machine and complimentary coffee pods, offers everything you need to self-cater your stay.

If you're looking for a cool and shady spot to enjoy a date with your book and a glass of wine, the rear deck is the place to be; the kids and the dog enjoying the lush lawn and the sunshine.

Four bedrooms, including a top-level space set up with the kids in mind, comfortably sleep up to nine guests here at Rose on the Bay. A bathroom on each level, plus a full laundry, complete the setup for your stay.

It’s an easy 1.2km walk to the Akaroa Village from Harbour View, where you’ll find a great selection of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. Stroll along the foreshore with an ice-cream, or book yourself on a dolphin watching cruise to spot the native New Zealand Hector’s Dolphin!

If you’ve brought the boat, there’s space to park it at Rose on the Bay, and the nearest ramp to launch from is just a three-minute drive away. If you want to take the kids for a swim, the beach at French Bay is just a five-minute drive from your home away from home.

When you’re looking for a seaside getaway for your family, Rose on the Bay will not disappoint!

Stayed December 2021

Lovely house for a large group. We had 5 adults and it was ideal being able to spread out across 4 bedrooms. 2 bathrooms and spacious indoor and outdoor living areas. Well-equipped and ideal if you have children with the loft room extremely spacious and well-stocked with toys, books and stereo. Would book again.

Stayed September 2021

Great place to stay with an extended family/group. Very accommodating for kids and dogs, including a dog area and what seemed like endless games! Great location up from the waterfront, easy stroll down into town. Plenty of outdoor space as well as off street parking. Really enjoyed our stay and cant wait to come back!

Stayed July 2021

It's a very reasonable price for such a lovely house. The cleanliness was of a very high standard, we loved how well the beds were made and the way the rooms were decorated. It felt like hotel quality. Really appreciated the extra touches like the Nespresso coffee. Great place, beautiful views. We would come again
