An amazing place to stay with kids. Loads of space outside and in, warm and toasty, will definitely be back.

Stayed December 2020

Nice house and fabulous garden in an excellent location. Very peaceful, spectacular views and also handy to town and walking tracks. Older style decor, which was perfect for us for a holiday.

Stayed October 2020

I loved staying at this property. The rhododendrons were in flower in the beautiful gardens. I loved the view. The style of the house is very relaxing. Large master bedroom. Thank you for letting us stay at such a lovely spot.

Stayed December 2019

This property was super family friendly and great for our dog. Note it was not totally fenced if you have a dog who may run away. Excellent views and great outdoor area.

Thanks for your review Lucy. We're so glad you enjoyed Point Watch. We love helping guests bring their pets on holiday, however a property being Pet Friendly doesn't always mean it is fully fenced. Whether a property is Fully or Partially Fenced is always clearly stated in the Amenities on the listing. We hope to see you again soon!

Stayed November 2019

Would definitely return. Great indoor/outdoor access throughout and very comfortable. Very private with plenty of space. Was a great long weekend away at Port Watch!

Stayed December 2018

Our family had a lovely stay over Christmas at the Bach. It was the perfect spot for us. I loved the view, and the kids had a great time playing games on the lawns. It's a great place to stay at in Akaroa.
