Enjoying expansive harbour and mountain views from the curved deck, Le Bach is the perfect base to explore picturesque Akaroa from.

This massive holiday home sleeps up to 12 across three levels and a Sleep Out, and has all the bells and whistles you need for a comfortable stay, including Wi-Fi, Smart TV with Netflix and Playstation!

Le Bach has plenty of room for the whole extended family, and your furry friends are welcome to play in the fenced backyard.

Smaller groups can book the upstairs level and the Sleep Out of this property for up to eight guests, while larger groups can opt to add in the downstairs level with two bedrooms, kitchenette and bathroom.

Wake up to stunning views as you sip your morning coffee on the deck, before strolling 15-minutes into the heart of Akaroa.

Le Bach has a lockable garage and boat parking onsite, if you're tempted to hit the water; or instead take it easy and enjoy boutique shopping, great eateries and wineries in this pretty town.

At the end of the day, enjoy a classic Kiwi BBQ on the deck of Le Bach. As the sun sets, bring out the telescope for some stargazing, and try your hand at spotting some constellations.

Le Bach is waiting to welcome you!

Stayed March 2021

This property was perfect for our family group of 12 for our weekend away - plenty of room for all and large dining/living area for us to enjoy plus great views from the deck - the weather was also amazing an added plus.

Stayed January 2021

My family found this an ideal venue for our holiday. The en suite bathrooms and the other bathrooms was very good. The opportunity for outdoor living, with tables and chairs allowed us to eat outdoors most nights. Also lots of space for parking. Woinderful views of Akaroa and the Port Hills and harbour,

Very Family Friendly and affordable , What you see on The Website does not do it justice , it was a fantastic property , that more than met our expectations . For our families it was a very enjoyable stay at this property and would not hesitate using it again if the need required.

Stayed January 2020

Excellent place for a family gathering with everything you need for a great stay just out of the hustle bustle of Akaroa but short strolling distance

Stayed November 2019

Great spot for a large family getaway - we had 12 people sleeping comfortably!

Stayed November 2019

Lovely house for a family break. The house had everything we needed and loved the coffee machine. The bigger kids enjoyed the bikes even if the hill was a challenge. Plenty of space for everyone to relax with lovely deck and views. The house has four showers which for a bigger group is fantastic. The walk to the village is easy but a bit tougher coming back up the hill. Plenty of parking but if you have a boat a bit tight on a busy weekend.

Stayed October 2019

The house was perfect for our five couples weekend getaway. All the beds were comfortable. Having four bathrooms is a plus. The house is clean, modern and spacious and the deck with the gorgeous rural view was well used. Would have no hesitation recommending this house

Great place to stay.

Stayed September 2019

This is a very warm comfortable house which more than catered for our needs. We were a large group and it was ideal. Views from balcony wonderful. Had a problem with hot water but it was sorted hopefully. Citrus garden was a plus.

Thank you for your feedback, and yes, the hot water issue was sorted. We're glad you loved your stay!

Great house. Perfect for large groups and very well kitted out with much more than the bare essentials. We were warm during terrible weather and well entertained with the numerous board games.
