Elevated just 500m back from French Bay in gorgeous Akaroa rests Odora House, a renovated three-bedroom home with views you’re guaranteed to get lost in.

From the moment you step inside this beautifully presented home, you’ll feel a sense of tranquility that comes from being near the sea. The open-plan living-dining area is styled for comfort, with a lounge suite just waiting for you, your glass of wine, and your latest good read.

A heat pump that doubles as an air-conditioner means you can set the perfect holiday temperature all year round. For a bit of cosy winter comfort, spark up the wood burning fire and watch a movie, or perhaps post some holiday snaps using the complimentary WIFI.

A spacious deck on two sides of Odora House expands the living area, offering that all important indoor-outdoor flow. Make yourself a fresh cup of coffee in the plunger, take a seat in the outdoor cane furniture, and gaze out at the view.

A well-equipped kitchen makes self-catering on your holiday a breeze. Pick up some delicious Akaroa salmon in town, pick a lemon from the tree in the yard, and bake it to perfection in the oven. Then put your feet up; the dishwasher is taking care of the clean up!

At the end of a day exploring, everyone can retreat to their own space here at Odora House. Three bedrooms comfortably sleep up to five guests, with a choice of queen, king single, and bunk options. The large bathroom with shower and bath is just right for everyone, and there’s even a washing machine for those longer getaways.

Odora House is just a short walk from the beautiful French Bay swimming beach, and the main village. Jump on a Black Cat Cruise for a dolphin watching adventure, and in summertime you may even be able to swim with these majestic creatures! There’s plenty of places to grab a Flat White in the village, not to mention world class restaurants to dine on fresh fish and other local produce.

For a beautifully renovated holiday home with views and a location to to envy, you simply must check out Odora House.

An older property but very clean and tidy. We throughly enjoyed our stay

Stayed January 2021

We had a fantastic stay at Odora house with my in laws and our toddler. The space was clean, open with a beautiful deck for outdoor dining with a lovely view. All the admin for our stay was quick and easy and there were fantastic amenities available too. Location is very close to town and children's bay was in walking distance, great for going to the beach. Would highly recommend staying here.

Superb bach for a young family holiday. Well equipped kitchen, brilliant log burner and comfy beds. Nice little deck area that the kids could run around on, as well as a big back yard. Close to all amenities in Akaroa. Would highly recommend.

We had a wonderful stay at the Odora house. Our kids loved exploring the garden and the large bath was a hit at bath time. We enjoyed disconnecting and had a great couple games ofthe retro Trivial Pursuit.
