Got to the artist’s garden about 3:40 and was told It closed at 4. Was rushed through as it closed at 4 so we had to whizz through. It was $60 for our family of five which is pricey as others have stated but the craft that the artist has used on all her statues and paths in the garden is truly incredible. The house is also amazing and a nice way to while away an afternoon. Should be noted that the garden is up a very steep driveway and much of the garden is also on a hillside so people going need to be aware of the need to do stairs.

A beautiful day in Akaroa made even better by this visit to The Giants House. Wonderful art and also such a beautiful vibrant garden. Amazing.

What an incredible place. Enjoyment for all ages. A bit disappointed that we couldn’t buy a small piece of pottery like the little eggs or flowers. We didn’t get to go in the house since we weren’t with a tour group. Maybe next time.

This is 1st an artists exhibition of mosaics, sculpture, and mixed media on a grand scale. All blended with an exquisite garden surround. AMAZING
