Amazing location and setting right on a quiet beach with views across harbour. Clean Bach with all the basics plus the use of kayaks and paddle boards. Close to Akaroa for more sightseeing and eateries.

Great, simple family Bach in an amazing location right opposite the beach. Our boys loved the kayaks etc. We had an awesome couple of days there and loved being able to take the dog.

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.

This bach is such a Kiwi gem. The new fire means the place is warm as toast.
