Guest reviews for The Tree House

We encourage reviews. Our review policy.
Stayed April 2022

Spent 9 days and enjoyed the bird life, spectacular views from the house and walks. The house is comfortable just quite worn and overpriced in my opinion for not having wifi and a few of the features of other properties in this proice range.

Stayed February 2022

The house is adequate with fantastic views...and some great fauna will visit the house as well. But it is a bit tired and needs a bit of a refresh. Not sure it was value for money, when we visited. But did I mention the views!!

Stayed January 2022

Very nice, comfortable, and in a lovely and convenient location, but overpriced

Stayed January 2022

The house is tired. Carpet is stained and loose. Needs replacing. Surfaces were not clean and house smelled. Overall vastly over priced for its condition. Smell of rubbish also. Deck with view was best part of the home. Cleaning- carpet needed vacuuming- found chocolate wrappers from previous renters. Just really poor all around.

Stayed December 2021

this property is suited for winter cold months. avoid the propoerty for summers. the bed room area is sweating hot and there is no way you can turn the heat off..

Stayed October 2021

A nice property with stunning views over the bay. A quiet location. As it's quite a way up the hill and a short drive to the main town, you will need to use your car. The property does not have WIFI, so be prepared to buy more data if your plan is not unlimited. The lounge furniture is out of the 1980s and needs updating.

The place has a lovely feel & outlook. We chose it as it looked relaxing, cheerful & suitable for our family of four. It is up a steep road to the house which gives a great view over the harbour, surrounded by trees & native birds. Maybe a recent change in management has led to a number of gaps that could be easily remedied. The wrap around deck is a real asset.

Thank you for your feedback Sarah. We are working with the local team on the ground on the gaps highlighted to ensure future bookings are not impacted the same way. We hope you enjoyed your stay in Akaroa!

Stayed July 2021

This property has a great living and outdoor area with gorgeous views. As a winter get-away it was cosy with the log fire, and we would happily stay again.

Stayed June 2021

Wonderful retreat with superb views and very, very helpful hosts. Be aware though no wifi and poor mobile coverage.

Stayed May 2021

Delightful house Definitely a tree house with great views

Stayed February 2021

An excellent and interesting building with one of the best views in Akaroa. We loved the relaxing environment with its changing harbour vistas, bush surrounds, kereru feeding on outside berries, ample kitchen and bedroom facilities, and range of locations within the house and property for sitting or moving around. Great for a family or just a couple. TV reception is Freeview and there's no Wifi, but these days phones can be used as hot points, and access to Akaroa shops and cafes is only 10 minutes down the hill.

Stayed January 2021

Very friendly welcome by the Host and a great house with a stunning view. Was a bonus having the Kereru chatting and perching close to the balcony.

Stayed January 2021

The view was exactly as expected - amazing. The property had all the space we needed and by going the extra mile, the property managers made our stay truely enjoyable.

Stayed December 2020

A really great place to hang out in. Excellent views and tree setting makes for a pleasant stay. Kereru and bellbirds a real highlight. Character architecture and period pieces of furniture provide nice chilled vibe.

Stayed October 2020

Large spacious house with outstanding views and a great deck but lounge furniture was really old and uncomfortable. Kitchen was great though and has absolutely everything you could need.

Stayed September 2020

A lovely warm and welcoming house with all amenities that you could want. Could have used a microwave but no big drama. Spectacular views of Akaroa harbour. Would definitely recommend.

Stayed August 2020

Great place to stay in Akaroa with access to the township as well as the hills for walks. Fabulous views. The log fire was welcome given the frosty weather.

Stayed August 2020

Cool shady house in winter but good heat pump & log fire.

Stayed May 2020

Awesome house, the deck is great for star gazing. Great place, easy walk to town, and I would definitely stay again.
