SarahStayed 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!
MargaretStayed 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.
RachelStayed 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.
GordonStayed February 2022
Lovely location Bach was functional and clean Handy to Akaroa and shops
CandiStayed 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.
KimStayed October 2021
A quintessential kiwi bach with everything you’ll need for a quiet getaway Close to Akaroa township Taking my dog- priceless
LindaStayed 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.
CatrionaStayed 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.
DeneseStayed 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
MargaretStayed April 2021

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.
KathStayed March 2021
Fantastic location and all you need for a fun family break!
CarolineStayed 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.
MargaretStayed 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!
LauraStayed January 2021
We had a lovely time here. Very simple, humble class wee bach. Lots of awesome water toys - the very reason we booked it. Beds were reasonably comfy too, which is always a welcome feature!

PrueStayed 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.
EmilyStayed November 2020
Family bach. Not well maintained. Looks better in photos
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.

Best location ever! Best view ever! For a quiet experience with nature including wood pigeons sleeping int he tree in front of the house. and some kayaking this is the Bach to go to. And less then 5 minutes from Akaroa township for plenty of entertainment.

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.
