This was a nice, relaxing part of our holiday - having done a massive south island trip a few years ago and wanting to simply relax in one place. the location was just far away from the main part of town to make it super quiet. we booked the beachside apartment downstairs and it was just what we wanted. it was clean, equipped with most things and the Wifi was great to have too.

I was able to walk from one end of Akaroa to the other very easily - it didn't take long at all and was so quiet and safe even for a late afternoon to evening walk. the views of the bay both outside the apartment and all the way around town was spectacular too.

With regards to cooking - be aware that there is a small convention oven, not a big one and a stove top. during the week, the local grocery store closes at 6.30pm and the butcher/deli at 5.30pm so if you are planning on eating in - choose food that can either be cooked simply or use the BBQ which we didn't have time for. And it isn't equipped with oil, paper towel for that etc so you will have to supply. other than that - it was a great retreat!

a nice surprise is the small gallery literally two minutes up the road - Denise was lovely and her art and jewelry very eclectic. If you are into local artists, visit!

Room tip: the floor room was large for a couple - and private too.

Have come to stay at the beach side room for a couple of nights, lovely spot close to town centre. Nice and quiet with a great view and lots of native bird song. Facilities were good too. Would recommend!

Great views, great location, great space and surroundings. We will be back! We stayed at the Penthouse studio which was great for a couple. Plenty of space and privacy and functional kitchen. Right across the road was the beach and easy walk into town for dinner and groceries.

This was a great little find for me and my wife. A beautiful place on the water with the best views ever. Good size places with everything you need (except maybe a fan for the very hot days). Looking forward to our next visit!

This was the perfect spot for our small and intitmate wedding. We booked out the whole place and got married on the deck of the seaview apartment. The booking process was simple, and Mary in particular was very helpful and accommodating. I would definitely come back to stay with a group of friends, or even on our own, in which case I'd book the Seaview or Penthouse apartments. All the apartments (esp. Seaview) are well equipped with great views. The Island Room is somewhat small and located at the back of the house, but it worked perfectly for our needs. If you want a relaxing spot away from the hustle and bustle of town, you definitley want to stay here. Such special memories.
