Streamside Retreat is a 4-bedroom holiday home in a picturesque setting with a fairytale-like feel.

Sleeping up to 10, this is a great house for families, with two bedrooms on each level and plenty of space inside and out. Streamside Retreat is pet friendly too, with a large grassy section for your furry friends to play in.

Ideal whatever the season, the log burner is on hand for winter warmth and the aircon for summer comfort. In warmer months, take it outdoors and enjoy a BBQ dinner al fresco in the evening sun!

The kids will love the selection of games inside or can head outside to play on the swing-set and in the large section. While they're entertained, cross the bridge over the bubbling stream and relax with a good book in the gazebo tucked away in the bush.

Cafes, shops and restaurants in the centre of Akaroa are a short 5-minute stroll away. Enjoy a meal with your group in this charming French historic township overlooking the harbour.

At the end of the day, a soak in the luxurious spa bath is pure holiday bliss.

Streamside Retreat is a serene and peaceful home base waiting to welcome you on your next trip to Akaroa!

The pictures on the site make the house look smaller when it’s actually perfect size for family and friends. The fire allows for cosy evenings and the back yard is absolutely stunning. Would highly recommend

Stayed September 2019

Loved the house. Was amazing waking up to the sound of the stream and the birds. Lots of room for the kids to run around and play, and plenty of room inside too. Walking distance to town. Beautiful home, will definitely be back

Stayed May 2019

Great location and house. Perfect for a family or group of friends. The ad makes it seem quite secluded but it's got houses surrounding it on all sides. We had a good stay and although would be nice to have a few basic cooking amenities like oil, the lovely spot made up for it.

Stayed February 2019

A great, characterful, spacious and clean property. There was everything we needed and everything was as described. Located a short stroll from the township so quiet, but easily within walking distance to shops, pubs and restaurants. Would definitely recommend this property and its character.
