Welcome to Woodside Cottage!

Nestled in amongst native New Zealand bush, this studio style cottage is host to some fantastic views of the Akaroa Harbour and scenery. With the trees surrounding the cottage, you'll be able to enjoy the sounds of the birds singing and privacy to really help you escape.

Wake up and wander out onto the balcony to take in the fresh South Island air. Enjoy the cosy, easy, laid-back holiday living setup of this studio style cottage, fitted with all the essentials you might need on your trip and cleaning included in your nightly rate. At the end of the day when you need to really unwind there is a large spa bath ready and waiting to help the stress melt away.

Stayed January 2021

Great spot to stay recommended

Stayed December 2020

A very cute and cosy cottage perfect for a couple’s getaway. Offering privacy and peace amongst native Bush with delightful birdsong, the real treat is the stunning water and harbour view.

Stayed December 2020

A small studio style cottage with amazing views over the harbour. The only noise was the amazing bird song every morning. Perfect for two in a secluded spot a ten minute walk from the centre of town and on the edge of a fantastic walking track.

Stayed November 2020

If you after a great place to stay in Akaroa try these cottages and you will not be disappointed. A lovely spot with wonderful views, great privacy and very pleasant hosts.

Stayed September 2020

Magic spot with privacy ,peace ,warmth and a view to injoy..

Stayed August 2020

Woodside Cottage is in a lovely bush setting with a nice view. A few things we weren’t happy with: one recliner chair, was broken and dangerous and should have been removed, no SKY (false advertising! “ find a movie to watch with SKY TV on hand.”) poor wifi signal, internet was slow and kept dropping out so we couldn’t download or stream a movie to compensate for no sky. Glasses are all very small, there was only one water glass. The property manager did bring one over the next day, advised us a new chair was on order(no use to us!) and did try to get help for wifi but tech wasn’t available. Queen size duvet cover on King size bed meant not great coverage for two if you like your space. The walk in to town was nice, but wouldn’t stay again. Expected a bit more for the price than we experienced.

Stayed June 2020

Great place! Very cozy! Just a short walk into downtown which was great for a coffee in thr morning and the wood stove was perfect when the Southerly blew in!

Stayed January 2020

The cottage was perfect for what we were after. Private and a nice layout for a romantic weekend away. It was very relaxing sitting on the deck, looking out over the bay, and hearing the birds calling in the native trees around us.

Stayed January 2020

A lovely place to stay where we could escape the Akaroa village and enjoy nature and views. Beautiful setting

Stayed January 2020

Stayed November 2019

Beautiful place. So peaceful. Enjoyed sitting outside in sunshine listening to the birds singing.

Stayed October 2019

We had a fantastic peaceful stay at Woodside cottage, a great break away. Everything was comfortable and cosy and quiet, just what we needed to get away from the city.

Stayed August 2019

Private setting with awesome view of the bay. Nice size unit with good facilities.

Stayed June 2019

Delightful cottage, comfortable bed, great wood fire, view of harbour and plentiful birdsong in the morning. Excellent and friendly welcome by the manager upon arrival. Highly recommend as a summer retreat as it doesn’t get any sun in the winter.

Stayed May 2019

Very nice and convenient location, beautiful setting. The cottage I stayed in was a little tired and needs a bit of attention but I very much enjoyed my stay.

A superb location, out of town just enough. Comfortable bed, had everything we needed.

Lovely spot for a romantic few days away!

Be prepared to clean it yourself

Hi Jason, thank you for your feedback. A professional clean is included within the rental rate for this property, so we're sorry to hear that you felt you had to clean it yourself. All we ask is that the house is left relatively tidy and the rest is up to us!
