Kokopu Cottage - Akaroa Holiday Home

  • 4 People
  • 2 Bedrooms
  • 1 Bathrooms
  • Yes Outside Only


A quaint historic cottage in gorgeous rolling gardens with a stream meandering through, Kokopu Cottage is a magical find in Akaroa.

This rustic 2-bedroom cottage will charm you with its vintage touches, stained glass windows and picturesque fairytale setting. The bubbling stream that rushes down the back of the house is a soothing lullaby as you drift off to sleep.

In winter months, keep cosy indoors around the brick fireplace while you flick through a book from the shelf or turn on the record player.

In warmer months, take your holiday reading to the summer house, where you can recline in one of the loungers amongst the gardens. As the sun sets, light a fire under the outdoor bathtub and enjoy a luxurious soak under the stars - bubbly in hand of course!

Feel as though you're living in a fairytale at Kokopu Cottage, as you head over the wooden bridge over stream to explore the large grounds and beautiful gardens. Dine outdoors in style under dappled shade from the trees - the perfect place for a midsummer nights BBQ!

Kokopu Cottage is quiet and serene, yet only 2 minutes drive from the heart of Akaroa town where you'll find great shopping and eateries. For a scenic adventure, take one of the four bikes available and go for a ride along the stunning French Bay waterfront. The entrance to the Woodhills walking track is right by Kokopu Cottage too, and a must-experience for any nature-lovers.

Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and fall in love with simple serenity at Kokopu Cottage!

We had a fantastic weekend stay at this cottage. The record selection was certainly a highlight as well as the beautiful garden space to explore. With a lot of rainy weather during our stay the cottage was a great place to hunker down with the wood fire cranking! Would thoroughly recommend this property!

We were in Akaroa in a bit of a heatwave ( 35 degrees on a few days ) and the bach was a great place to sit out under the trees with cold drinks & let the afternoon drift by. Its a nice private spot surrounded by trees but still close to town. A fantastic place to base yourself while having an explore of what Akaroa has to offer.

Complete paradise! We loved every minute of our 5 night stay the week before Xmas. Sunny days were spent lying by the stream in the sunshine or under the shade of the many native trees listening to the abundant native birds. Cooler days were spent snuggled in the living area on the comfy sofas reading in front of the roaring fire (loads of wood available to use). It's such a gorgeous cottage with everything we needed to have a wonderfully relaxing holiday including beautiful china, cutlery and glassware. The gorgeous fluffy (and very friendly) chooks were a delightful addition and were happy to come up the front door and say hi whenever we had it open. Highly recommend this for a peaceful, secluded holiday in a stunning part of NZ. We will definitely be back!

Kokopu Cottage was more than expected and we loved every minute of our stay. The quaint cottage was delightful inside and the surrounds were incredible. The brook, the animals, the gardens and the outside sunroom were perfect. Would definitely recommend this cottage.

A beautiful little cottage with easy living flow inside, wonderful open fire and comfortable lounge and beds. The stream and birds and trees all added to a super restoring stay. Would book again.
