About this Holiday House

Fabulous sea views across the harbour, sun drenched decking areas, private bush setting and easy walking distance to Akaroa's superb cafes and restaurants. This well equipped, modern holiday home has recently been refurbished by its owners, and is very clean, comfortable, and quite special. Free wifi is provided in the house. The house is all on one level and is elevated for the sea views. An easy set of steps leads from the driveway parking to the house. The sea view can be enjoyed from the living area as well as from both of the double bedrooms. A substantial wrap around deck means that there are plenty of places for alfresco meals or a glass of wine. Enjoy a coffee on the front open deck or under the shaded verandah and watch the boat traffic and comings and goings of the town. Or pull up a chair and relax in total seclusion on the sunny deck at the rear of the property to read a book. A new 'Broil King' hooded BBQ has been added to the outdoor dining space - complete with thermostat it means you can use this as an outdoor oven to make pizza or to roast a chicken or leg of pork, as well as using it as a conventional BBQ! Inside, the stylish living/dining room has a flat screen television with freeview satellite TV, as well as good lighting for reading. A big 8kw Daikin heat pump and a double layer of batts insulation in the ceiling will keep you warm and cosy in the winter as well as cooler in the summer.The kitchen is well equipped and is well lit and bright. The bathroom has been completely updated and has a wall mounted fan heater. A hair dryer is also provided. The master bedroom is equipped with a queen sized bed and the second bedroom has a double bed. Both bedrooms are a perfect retreat for guests, with good quality beds. A convenient laundry and utility area adjoins the back door. All areas are super clean and light and bright. Akaroa is a charming seaside village established by the French in 1840. Its unique blend of cultures, well preserved history and stunning location make it a must to visit and relax in.

What a place to end our visit to New Zealand. A beautiful house in a fabulous location. Clean, comfy and well appointed. Steep drive up to house but manageable for a couple with dodgy knees to walk down!! Up above the town so amazing views but close enough to walk to shops, restaurants etc So glad we picked this property!

My husband and I stayed here for four idyllic nights. This is a very comfortable house with wonderful views. It is well equipped. Modern shower with good pressure; efficient heat pump; well-equpped kitchen (no dishwasher); TV and DVD player; comfortable queen size bed. The views were just wonderful, and the deck is large, providing seating places on three sides of the house. We decided not to dine out in the evenings, but sourced excellent meat and meals (especially Moroccan beef) at the boucherie (butcher). Fresh bread from the boulangerie. Highly recommended. We are keen to return.
Lovely house with a beautiful view. We really enjoyed our stay.
