We've just had our third stay at Halfmoon Cottage. It is a lovely peaceful stay with plenty of sunny spots around the garden to sit and read and snooze. Very handy to Akaroa and other scenic spots on Banks Peninsula. Cornelius and Margot are wonderful hosts. So attentive to every detail and made us feel so welcome again.
What a beautiful place. It's like coming home. Everything is so well thought through. Spotlessly clean. Plenty of space in the garden, verandas, lounge room, dining room to relax. Stunning gardens. Slippers on arrival. What else can you say. Margo and Cornelius must work around the clock to keep this place as beautiful as it is. Lots of tips and maps on what to do and see in the area. Thank you very much. Would love to come back.
I am glad that the Halfmoon cottage was recommended to me. It’s a wonderful place - a lovely garden with a lot of opportunities to relax, spotless kitchen, very clean & tidy facilities. The heart of the cottage are the owners - Margo and Cornelius try everything to make your stay unforgettable: travel tipps of the beaten track, slippers when you check in to make you feel home. They care about their guests and found their passion with the cottage. Defenitely recommenced :-)
Brilliant place to spend a couple of days, meet other tourists and travellers and make friends. Wonderful garden. Spacious rooms. Most comfy beds. Well equipped kitchen. Cosy dining aerea - in- and outdoor. Showers and toilette absolutely clean. Situated at the beach with sight to historic Maori place, 10 minutes from Akaroa and close to some of the most marvellous Bays of Banks Peninsula. Owners, Margo and Cornelius, with a huge knowledge of hiking possibilities, fascinating spots, what’s-up‘s and where to‘s, ready to share all the informations - just ask.
We have recently spent a night here and can say 100% we'll be back. We were greated by the hosts with a smile and straight away felt very welcomed. After check-in we were shown to our rooms and given a few local suggestions. The room was clean, beds very comfortable and the bathrooms conveniently located. Kitchen was again very clean with complimentary fresh plums on the table from the fruit tress in the garden. If you're looking for a tranquil and relaxing stay... book here!
