“could not have been better!!!!!!!”
Reviewed 5 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

After exploring around Christchurch for a day in 2011we discovered Akaroa and said we would love to come back for a stay for a few days if we ever got back this way again. So glad we did!!! Our host Allison is simply the best!!!!
This one bedroom 2nd floor unit is perfectly designed for a couple on Holiday. Had everything necessary for cooking in if you like. Very modern in every way, bright, airy, and had nice views of harbor and village from this elevated location.Very easy walk to a village full of activities and all set in one of NZ's best and (I think overlooked) little holiday locations. Easy drive from Christchurch to a lovey super scenic former volcano complete with tourist road to many scenic locations(beaches included) harbor activities, local wildlife cruises, swim with dolphins etc. Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed it.

“Great place to stay after long-haul flight into Christchurch”
Reviewed 22 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We had arranged to spend 2 nights here after a long-haul flight from the U.K. It was extremely comfortable and in a lovely position overlooking, but still close to the harbour. Pleased that we managed to spend an extra night there.

“Superb Accommodation and Service”
Reviewed 20 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The owners were so very helpful, kind and accommodating. Their service was professional and genuine; they truly went the extra mile. Thank you so much Alison & Ross. As for the apartment itself - what an Akaroa treasure! It is in a brilliant location; only minutes to the waterfront yet it was quiet with the only noise being native birdsong - what a hardship! The apartment was clean and had absolutely everything you could need. The goodies left for our arrival were a lovely touch and all correspondence and instructions couldn't have been clearer. The owners made everything easy from the start and the apartment provided rest and relaxation in a very classy way. We will be back!

Wow. Thank you K for your review. I'm so pleased you got to take a well deserved break. We do have a magical spot - and enjoy having guests enjoy the apartment for some private rest and relaxation. The birdsong is lovely and so many sightings too ☺ Kind regards and thank you for booking with us. Alison

“Very Good”
Reviewed 11 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Stayed for a weekend recently.

Booked with Trip Advisor . All communication with owner - excellent..

The property is within walking distance from town (5-8 min), modern (very good condition), well appointed, spotlessly clean, and quite.

This the first time that I can honestly say, that the real thing was better than the pictures - this place is very good - trust me. It may not be the cheapest in town, but well worth it.

Highly recommended.

“Could not be more perfect!!!!”
Reviewed 27 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Having never been to Akaroa before we had no idea of the standard of accommodation, so we were a little nervous. As we followed the very clear directions emailed to us to find Akaroa Apartment, we hoped for the best - the best is what we got! Honestly this apartment is a total delight. With loads of natural light, sunshine beams into this space making it feel so welcoming. Everything you could possibly need is there for you, including bread, wine and chocolates etc. The full bathroom was amazing. During our stay, fresh flowers were left for us which was a lovely addition to what was already a spectacular stay. I cannot recommend this apartment highly enough - we would love to return one day.

Hello Catherine - wow what a review thank you. I'm so pleased you had a great time - the apartment is rather gorgeous and in such a great spot for sun and views. With your longer stay and special occasion I'm pleased you enjoyed the extras. The flowers were ones we decided not to transport back to Christchurch and too pretty to cast aside. That's great you enjoyed your first trip to Akaroa - until next time : ) Kind REgards Alison
