Enjoy a relaxing, romantic, well-deserved break in this secluded and private studio cottage nestled within native New Zealand bush just out of Akaroa. It’ll only take you a 2 minute drive or 15 minute stroll to reach the charming village shops and cafes.
Keep cozy this Spring! Indulge in the warmth and coziness of our Bushside cottage with a combination of a wood burner and a newly installed heat pump.
While you’re in Akaroa, don’t miss the opportunity to meet the wildlife on a scenic harbour cruise. Let yourself get up close to beautiful species such as fur seals, white-flippered and yellow-eyed penguins, albatrosses and other fascinating fauna. Akaroa is the only place in the world where you can go swimming with Hector’s dolphins! - some of the world’s smallest and rarest.
Wake up to birdsong, relish a complimentary Nespresso on us and wander out onto the balcony to take in the fresh South Island air and admire the fantastic harbour views.
The kitchenette has all you need to prepare quick easy meals, or choose to head into Akaroa village to sample from great cafes and culinary venues.
At the end of the day there is a large spa bath ready and waiting to help your stress melt away. Pour yourself a glass of wine and get cozy from the warmth of the fire while you watch a movie on the modern Smart TV.
Everything you need for a Romantic escape awaits at Secluded Getaway!

Very poor communication. Would not even have had access to the property only the gardener just happened to be there
Thanks for your feedback Graeme. We're sorry you didn't get to experience the normal Bachcare service and we've passed on your feedback to the relevant Bachcare team members. We hope we can make it up to you in future!
PaulStayed September 2020
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bach care Akaroa. Our only complaint would be it was too hot with the log burner which isn't a bad thing.
ChristineStayed January 2020
We extended our intended stay as we were enjoying the accommodation and area more than we had anticipated. Ange was an excellent manager and went over and above to help us with our queries!!! We highly recommend this location

Wonderful spot with peaceful setting and everything you need for a zen weekend away!
DavidStayed March 2019
Comfortable studio type bach. Loved the early morning bird song.
MarkStayed January 2019
A beautiful spot, waking up to the bird song is bliss, soul food. Wonderful welcome Brendan, thank you. Only improvement - the mattress is at the end of its life and a little too soft/sagging. Rest of the accommodation is spot on.
GregStayed December 2018
Beautiful view of Akaroa Harbour, very relaxing.
HEMAIMAStayed December 2018
Beautiful and peaceful property. So handy to the centre of town but private enough to feel like you're miles away. Only thing we would have liked is if there was wifi. Comfy bed and awesome shower pressure! Would stay again.
