Breathtaking views and fantastic outdoor living will be the stars of a getaway to this gorgeous Banks Peninsula holiday home. Welcome to Bayiew Retreat!

Sitting high above Duvauchelle Bay and just a 12-minute drive from Akaroa Village, this absolute beauty offers enough space for the whole family to spread out and relax on holiday.

Sliding glass doors from the top floor, open-plan living space create seamless indoor-outdoor flow onto the deck. Prepare a delicious charcuterie platter in your fully equipped kitchen and enjoy a glass of wine against the ultimate backdrop; the glass balustrades ensuring nothing obstructs the view over the bay.

When the weather has you snuggling up indoors, heaters in every room mean you'll be toasty warm, and a TV with Chromecast and basic Sky TV is on hand for some family entertainment. Complimentary WiFi also ensures you stay connected throughout your stay.

This top floor is ideal for a couple's getaway with everything you need for a fantastic stay, but wander downstairs and find yourself in another haven for relaxation! Two bedrooms and a bathroom await, as well as an impressive cliff top BBQ deck, calling out to host alfresco dinners.

Duvauchelle Bay is a wonderfully quiet spot to unwind, while still being just a short drive, or 20-minute catamaran ride, from Akaroa. Visit Akaroa to enjoy delicious food, check out boutique shopping, and head out on a cruise to spot unique wildlife.

If you’re staying close to home you can grab a coffee and a bite to eat at the Duvauchelle Store, or play a round of golf at the Akaroa Golf Club, both just four minutes drive away.

Your relaxing escape awaits, here at Bayiew Retreat!

Stayed December 2021

A stunning view and a wonderful deck to enjoy it all. Lovely quiet location. Great kitchen, BBQ and bathrooms. Poor cleaning with months of dust not attended to and blocked shower drains and in urgent need of windows cleaned and garden tended to.

Stayed November 2021

Beautiful house with stunning views but unfortunately badly managed due to basic requirments not provided i.e toilet paper, little to no gas (hot water, stove top and bbq), dish washing liquid

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your feedback Adrian and we're glad you enjoyed the property and the stunning views. The gas bottle just required a switch to be flicked when running low and the instructions were in the property compendium, however I understand our property manager was able to resolve this quickly for you during your stay and understand that she also brought along some extra supplies as well. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may have caused during your stay and hope to welcome you back in future!

Stayed October 2021

Would not stay here again! Dishwasher was full of moldy dishes, house smelt damp, and cigarette butts in ashtray outside on the deck, not a very well maintained property at all.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback on your stay and we are sorry to hear that the property did not meet your expectations on this occasion. As we have already discussed with you, we have raised your comments with the team looking after this property to ensure that this does not happen again and we hope the compensation you received has helped make up for the inconvenience.
