Nothing to interrupt an unforgettable view out onto the waters of the harbour and across to the surrounding rural landscapes - Taka Retreat will not disappoint!

A unique, new, architectural home that features a savvy mix of corten steel, cedar, and stone. Immaculately decorated with thoughtfully curated furnishings, you will be hard pressed to find a corner of this home that doesn't offer utter luxury and seamless styling. An elegant and artistic interior from the schist rock feature wall, the hand-painted mural surrounding the reading nook, seamless indoor/outdoor flow, and finally to the custom laser-cut steel patterned wall down the western side of the home.

Taka Retreat is an indulgent escape, where you'll be waking up to the sound of native birds, enjoying breakfast with a view and at the end of the day, sipping wine on the deck overlooking the water.

Stay cool under the air-conditioning or enjoy the fresh air out of the sun under the large sheltered sundeck fitted with outdoor speakers. In winter, there is a lovely gas fire inside and a large heat pump, your choice to keep toasty warm.

There is a double kayak kept down at the water, room to park a boat or two on the driveway, and the use of the large internal access garage. Extra beds can be made up if required.

Just an eight-minute drive from the busy summer crowds of Akaroa, this splendid location gives you the very best of both worlds. So close to the fabulous restaurants, bars and the many amazing activities to be found in the quaint historic village of Akaroa, then back to the peace of Takamatua Bay.

This is a home you will want to return to. Easy, relaxed and designed for comfort and simplicity - Taka Retreat awaits!

An awesome property, well equipped with spectacular views. We had 2 days "locked down" by torrential rain and it was a pleasure! Plenty of room, a great kitchen, awesome views. We'd come again! When the rain cleared it showed just how good the views are!

This Bach is outstanding, I love every thing about it , I cannot fault it , maybe a BBQ on the deck would be good . 10/10

Stayed August 2021

Thank you so much for sharing your magnificent home with us! The previous night we were caught in a snowstorm and in very cold and uninsulated accommodation, whose electricity cut out during the night! So it was so wonderful to hole up in your warm and stunning house for a few nights, to recalibrate the calm and harmony. The views are spectacular from this beautifully designed house and we didn’t want for any creature comforts. I loved the decor and all the retro homely touches that we were so kindly entrusted with, it just made the stay so much more. I would have loved to stay a few months and had time to read some of the beautiful old books, whilst cosied up before the fire or sat on the wonderful monolithic table on the sun filled deck. But alas it cannot be. I hope to return one day.

We had an amazing stay at our Bachcare property. Everything was very clean and well presented. We would not hesitate to use Bachcare again

Stayed December 2019

This property was absolutely lovely. Fantastic views, easy access with a boat and spotlessly clean. We wouldn't hesitate to stay at this property again and already have recommended it to friends.
