Nestled in the bush and overlooking the sparkling waters of Takamatua Bay, you'll love life at the Kingfisher's Perch!

This three-bedroom holiday home makes for relaxed summertime living with stunning views of the harbour. With recently added unlimited fibre WiFi, Kingfisher's Perch has been refurbished with modern amenities, but delight in the funky 70's vibes that are alive and well in the green kitchen!

In sunny months at Kingfisher's Perch, enjoy air-con and excellent outdoor living on the ocean-facing deck and comfy chairs, the perfect place to curl up with a book and watch the boats sail by.

Kingfisher's Perch offers kayaks and lifejackets available for use for both adults and children. At the end of the day, the outdoor dining area is an irresistible location for a casual BBQ dinner with your group.

In cooler months, keep warm with the heat pump and challenge the fam to a game of pool in the rumpus room, or sit back and enjoy the 300 DVD's available for all ages!

For day trips, historical Akaroa village is a lovely spot to explore just ten minutes away drive away, where you can indulge in fabulous eateries and boutique shopping.

Take a step back and relax into holiday mode at Kingfisher's Perch!

Great views and space for a family, unfortunately the house wasn't very clean and the dishwasher was full of dishes and the oven filled with left over BBQ meat from previous tenants. Our stay was ok.

Nice family holiday spot

A great family holiday stay. Well appointed, well stocked with so much to do, and stunning views. No wifi and the one bathroom only negatives, although we coped well with 7 of us there.

We loved our stay at Kingfisher’s Perch. We found it very relaxing and tranquil, and loved the bird life! Beds super comfy, amazing view, and great to have the use of the kayaks. The kids loved it too and spent lots of time exploring in the back yard!!! Akaroa was only a few minutes drive for a top up of food. We will definitely be back.

This is a fabulous location. The house has spectacular views, comfy beds and lovely linen. The kitchen is really well equipped - we had Christmas there and found it had everything we needed. Wonderful bird life all around, with an impressive dawn chorus.

The positives for this house are as follows: Beautiful 3-bedroom lake-view home with an easy 5 minute walk to the beach front. Entertainment area has a pool table, a bookshelf, dart board and one kayak. Heater in the lounge easily heats the whole house. Great views throughout the day. Negatives: Windows were dirty and lounge area dusty. If you are willing to rent out a holiday home, you should be prepared for last minute bookings. Saw no effort to at least clean windows. Dirt was more evident during the day and this was very disappointing because we had to look through these windows to see the lake. Also, website mentions 2 bathrooms. This should be modified because there is only one bathroom. Toilet area is a separate room. Bedroom side tables were also dusty. I've mentioned this to the holiday manager that it seems we were paying the cleaning fee for the next tenants when the property was itself not cleaned for our stay. Property manager did not seem friendly in communication and was not much helpful. For the price, this was disappointing.
