Anchor in Akaroa is a 2-bedroom 1-bathroom cottage located in the heart of Akaroa. The slightly elevated position offers gorgeous views of the harbour and the surrounding hills.

You'll love the combination of antique decor and modern touches, with a heat pump and underfloor heating to keep you warm year round while still preserving that charming cottage atmosphere. Additionally, the bedrooms are comfortable and spacious, perfect for resting your head after a long day.

When the weather is warmer, open the ranch sliders and step out into the private courtyard where you can enjoy a BBQ under the late afternoon sun. You're only a stone's throw away from the water if you feel the need to cool off at any stage throughout your stay.

Being only a couple of minutes stroll from the main wharf and popular cafes and restaurants, you'll never be far from the action.

The views and comfort that this Akaroa home provide will make your holiday one to remember for a long time to come!

Quaint place to stay, in a lovely setting with easy access to the village and yet still very private

Stayed February 2022

Lovely spacious comfortable home with great views and very private. Easy walking distance to town and had everything we needed. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Stayed January 2022

The view and location of this property are wonderful, very close to the village but set above the sea in a quiet spot. It is a typical old style Kiwi bach.

Stayed November 2021

Bachcare was easy to communicate with and the house was nice and tidy. Will use Bachcare again.

A wonderful, comfortable place within easy walking distance to everywhere in the town. It was warm and we'll equipped with a great view

Stayed January 2021

A stunning spot to holiday and a charming simple bach in a ridiculously charming location.

Stayed October 2020

Best view and position in Akaroa. So relaxing listening to the water lapping on the rocks and taking in the unobstructed view of the yatch harbour and lighthouse from both inside and out. Beautiful sunset view and don't forget those stars that light up next Made regular use of BBQ. All round a great relaxing long weekend. The cottage overall is perhaps a little tired. Had a few minor tweaks to do in fuse box to get everything working but who cares. The all glass design and total privacy are 10 out of 10. We loved it

Stayed July 2020

Nice quiet spot with good views but could do with some updates

Stayed May 2020

Wonderful location and beautiful home. We loved it. Friendly and helpful owners nearby and Bachcare support was just right. We were very comfortable but it might be helpful to note for some the toilet entry is tight if you are large or of limited mobility and a new mattress in the main room would be a lovely upgrade.

Stayed February 2020

Lovely house right near the water with a great view. Only 5 minutes walk to the main wharf.

Stayed October 2019

We think we have found the most beautiful place to stay in Akaroa . Small and perfectly formed ,this is a beautifully designed home with fabulous views to the harbour and hills .The fittings reflect the age of the property but everything works well .Has easy access to walks and town .It's not super easy to find the property but that adds to the privacy and tranquility .
