Country charm and character met with the classic kiwi holiday lifestyle - Welcome to the English's Retreat!

A warm and inviting home, that has been thoughtfully fitted with comfy furnishings and colourful decor to help you switch off and enjoy every minute of being away from the hustle and bustle.

English's Retreat comes with all the essentials, including a fully-equipped kitchen for those delicious holiday meals and a TV and DVD player to throw on a movie at the end of the day.

In those warmer months, take it to the outside to make the most of the hammock on the sheltered sundeck - the perfect spot to chill out and read a good book.

Cafes, shops and restaurants in the centre of Akaroa are a short 5-minute stroll away. So when you don't feel like cooking, leave the car at home and wander into town to enjoy a meal with your group in this charming French historic township overlooking the harbour.

Find the great spot to escape to and ensure you get some downtime - English's Retreat awaits.
