Amazing place to relax and take in what Akaroa has to offer. Highly recommend this stunning home to stay at. Definitely one of the best spots to look out from over the township!

Stayed April 2021

We found it difficult to leave with this being one of the most memorable family holidays we have had to date,. The house exceeding our expectations which made us want to just stay home relax and appreciate the views and that's saying something for my very active family. We enjoyed precious family quality time here made special by what this house has to offer and welcomed the beauty of Akaroa Harbour. We were fortunate with perfect weather but that wouldn't have altered the magic we felt staying in this house! So happy. Lorrina Stowers-Smith
