We have just had another wonderful stay in this beautiful property w our precious pup. We just love everything about the home, the location and gorgeous Akaroa. Thank you for having us ❤️

Stayed February 2022

What a fantastic house. Stayed for 3 days and didn't want to go out at night as the property is so homely. Highly recommend

Stayed December 2021

Wow this cottage was immaculate and such a pleasure to stay in. Every detail has been thought about and the effort put into the experience was amazing. Firstly the bedrooms were huge, comfortable beds and an ensuite each with a bath. We loved the underfloor heating in the bathrooms and the extra touches such as bath soak, candles, and amenities. The honesty bar, tea and coffee supplies and pantry went above and beyond expectation. This made cooking and drink making a breeze. The cottage itself is within an easy walking distance to both set of shops and a huge bonus was being able to take our wee dog with us. We are looking forward to staying again in future.

This is one of the loveliest places I have stayed in a very long time. The villa is immaculate and every little detail has been taken care of, with the utmost charm. It has the feel of a very high quality B&B - with the bonus that you have the whole house to yourself. The beds are huge and really comfortable - and beautiful. The location is excellent, literally a few minutes walk to the beach, restaurants and shops. When we arrived it was a bit chilly, and Karen who welcomed us had lit the fire which was such a welcome touch! We left wishing that we had booked for several days more.

This is a beautiful house with all the comforts of home, a cosy fire and room to be with friends or in your own space. Great location in the heart of Akaroa within easy walking from many attractions and facilities. We had a lovely time, thank you.

Stayed January 2021

Amazing place that obviously had a huge amount of effort put into the furniture, decorations and accents, nice deck with outdoor furniture. Very close to town, a very short walk. Huge bedrooms and fantastic ensuites in theme of the 'old Akaroa'. A very well thought out villa.

A beautiful, charming cottage in a great location with restaurants just around the corner and shops a 5 minute walk away. It was a true “boutique accommodation” experience. Karen was tremendously helpful and friendly. We will definitely be back soon.
