Giving a nod to the French history of the breathtaking Banks Peninsula town of Akaroa, the name of this stunning three-bedroom holiday home really says it all. Welcome to Vue de la Mer!
Picture yourself sipping a glass of champagne on your wrap-around deck, as you stare out at picturesque views of the Akaroa Harbour. You’re on holiday now, and in the perfect position to catch all day sun, this home is the ideal spot to relax.
Filled with sunlight right up to its vaulted ceilings and exposed beams, Vue de la Mer is furnished with style and comfort in mind. For time spent indoors, set the ideal temperature at the touch of a button thanks to heat pump technology. Nestle into the comfy couch and delve into the pages of a good book, if you can tear your eyes away from the view out the wall-to-wall sliding glass doors that is.
Open up these doors and create seamless indoor-outdoor flow from the open-plan living-dining area, on to the expansive deck. When it’s time to tuck into some fresh Akaroa salmon cooked to perfection on the BBQ, prepare a feast of delicious sides in the fully equipped kitchen, and dine alfresco with the cool coastal breeze flowing through.
At the end of the meal, pop the dishes in the dishwasher, catch up on the latest game on Sky Sports, or turn on the Apple TV and settle in for a movie night. Or take some time to post your favourite snaps from your day in Akaroa using the complimentary unlimited WIFI.
Recharge the batteries overnight in the three bedrooms here at Vue de la Mer. The master with its queen bed enjoys deck access, allowing you to wake up and get a good dose of quiet, breathtaking beauty first thing in the morning.
In the morning, make a delicious coffee with the Nespresso coffee machine, sit outside on the lovely deck and make a plan for the day. From Vue de la Mer it’s just a 10-minute walk to the Akaroa township, where you’ll find shops, eateries, and activity providers. If a day at the beach takes your fancy, you’ll find an excellent swimming beach just a 15-minute walk from your home away from home.
Allow yourself to relax and take in the view of the sea, here at Vue de la Mer!

Lovely house with a breathtaking view of Akaroa. The deck overlooking the harbour was my favourite place to sit.

The views are spectacular, the house is very clean and well stocked, the beds are comfortable. Communication from the house owners was excellent.

Beautiful view. Sun on the deck til 7pm (Xmas/New Year time). Comfortable living space, bedrooms & large kitchen a plus. The road access was a little tricky drive (up a steep narrow road) but once you're in the property plenty of parking space. We got the hang of driving up pretty quick! Wasn't suitable for easy boat/jetski trailering. Close to township so can walk in.
