Absolutely loved this little Batch perfect location quiet stunning views . Lots of heating to make it nice in cosey on cold nites . Would recommend to all and would stay here again.

Stayed March 2022

What a wonderful kiwi bach. Something for everyone, from sitting on the deck with a drink, to paddle boarding or kayaking out on the water this is the perfect holiday stay and dog friendly too. Just a 5 minute drive to the cafes and restaurants of Akaroa makes it a super convenient location. This place gets a 5 star from me!

Stayed March 2022

Across the road from beach and only 5 minutes from Akaroa, so an ideal spot. Being able to have dog as well is a bonus.

Stayed February 2022

Great spot right across from the water. The kids loved the kayaks and really nice to have a range of lifejackets for all sizes.

Stayed February 2022

Lovely location Bach was functional and clean Handy to Akaroa and shops

Stayed December 2021

Loved the location, the SUP boards and Kayaks were fantastic! Fully fenced property for our dog was the best! Property wasnt cleaned well and we had no key info sent to us.

We loved this place! A classic kiwi bach with some really awesome extras - kayaks and paddle boards, trampoline, big back yard. Great location opposite the beach and a short drive to Akaroa. Highly recommend.

Stayed October 2021

A quintessential kiwi bach with everything you’ll need for a quiet getaway Close to Akaroa township Taking my dog- priceless

Stayed October 2021

This is a great, easy care place to stay for a family with children of all ages and view is great. We took the dog too and it is fully fenced with front gates.. There is easy access to water front - right on the doorstep - and the river a few minutes away. Lovely stay and children especially enjoyed it.

Stayed September 2021

Very comfortable bach on the waterfront, with a great big fenced yard - really appreciated being able to bring the dog along. The kitchen is well equipped, and the house was warm even with frosty mornings and snow around. We had booked for three nights, but it was such a lovely relaxing place to stay that we extended it for another two - definitely recommended.

Stayed August 2021

Great warm place to stay in, could take our dog with us, as she is a labrador, 4 minutes by car and you are in town, just lovely to sit out side the bach with a drink and watch the tide come in or go out just stunning

Loved our time at Taka bach. Brilliant spot really relaxing and great to be able to get out on the water with the kayaks. Thanks for letting us in earlier Karen. My daughter and I really enjoyed our stay.

A traditional kiwi bach, ideally located adjacent to the water. The property has great facilities and the use of the kayaks was an added bonus. Our dog had a great time and didn't want to leave. I will be booking this bach again.

Stayed March 2021

Fantastic location and all you need for a fun family break!

Stayed February 2021

This was a typical kiwi bach. Nothing fancy, but really cool setting, and so thankful we could take our wee dogs. Great location. Sitting on the deck with a drink, staring straight at the water - just heavenly. Manager was very accommodating. Would definitely stay here again. Great for kids and a small family.

Stayed February 2021

Couldn’t be better situated, on quiet street with beach directly across the road. We used the kayaks provided. We had a great time and dog didn’t want to leave!

Stayed January 2021

Fantastic family bach, small with big personality. Across the road from a tidal beach and a 7minute drive into Akaroa

Stayed November 2020

We loved this kiwi bach by the sea which was very comfortable, welcoming and homely. Peaceful and quiet it is truly on the waterfront and couldnt have been a nicer place to spend a couple of nights before a busy family reunion.

Stayed November 2020

Family bach. Not well maintained. Looks better in photos

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your feedback Emily. This is a classic Kiwiana bach and I understand that due to the weather before your stay the lawns were not able to be mowed. Unfortunately sometimes the weather gets in the way, but we are happy to advise this has now been done.

Classic Kiwi bach, perfect for a family holiday at the beach with the dog. Walking distance to Akaroa along backroads and tracks. Peaceful location only a few minutes from the shops and cafes in Akaroa. We enjoyed paddling around the bay in kayaks.

A wee oasis of peace and tranquility less than 5 minutes drive from the cafes, restaurants, and walks of Akaroa. The bach itself surpassed our expectations - clean, tidy, comfortable and everything we needed, with a lovely sunny deck. Karen was courteous, helpful, and a pleasure to deal with. We can't wait to stay again!

Lovely little "kiwi bach" to stay for a family. Loved that we could bring our dog as well and it was a pity it was too cold to use the kayaks and dinghy.
