With views that will take your breath away, or as the French would say 'à couper le souffle.' The Boathouse is an ideal spot for couples wanting to explore the French town of Akaroa.

A classic design with a modern twist. Feel at ease as you sip on a glass of wine at your dining table with a picturesque view of French Bay. Relax and unwind in style with modern furnishings and artwork that create an easy living mood.

Complete with all your essentials, from Wi-Fi to prepare your itinerary to air conditioning to keep you comfortable all year round and a smart TV to enjoy your evenings with a couple of TV shows.

50m to the beach and just a bit further to the local eateries and attractions. Head out and explore New Zealand's sole French settlement. Take the 3-minute walk to visit the Akaroa Museum or stroll down the garden of art at 'The Giants House' just a 10-minute walk up the road. If you want something a little more adventurous, head on out and try out the dolphin cruise.

For your next visit to Akaroa, make The Boathouse your home away from home!

Guest reviews for The Boathouse

Stayed April 2022

Great space in a great location. Reasonably well equipped although we would have expected some other amenities at the price (eg coffee pods, shower gel etc). Pillows were very thin so you may want to consider bringing your own if you like them a bit thicker.

Stayed July 2021

Our stay at the Beach House exceeded our expectations and was the perfect place for my husband and I to enjoy Akaroa.

Stayed July 2021

This compact little home has everything a couple would need for a lovely holiday - we parked the car and walked everywhere- the design of the round window with a beautiful view of the harbour was exactly in keeping with the name “The Boathouse” - we would hope to stay there again if we chose to return to Akaroa a most delightful holiday destination

Stayed February 2020

We greatly enjoyed our stay and look forward to repeating the experience in the not too distant future.
