About this Holiday House

This charming farm house is such a fun way to experience the outer Marlborough Sounds. Set in the middle of Akaroa Station in Anakoha Bay it is one of three holiday lets set amongst a huge lawn and garden area. The cottage was built in 1910 and has been updated throughout with a modern kitchen and renovated bathroom. Bedroom 1 - King Bed Bedroom 2 - Queen Bed Bedroom 3 - Set of single bunks with roll out trundler, set of King single bunks. This bach is a perfect base if you are planning to fish throughout the outer Marlborough Sounds or perhaps you just want somewhere to escape to with a book and watch the tide come and go from your window. The wood burning fire doesn't take long to heat up the living areas and there is a seperate laundry with an extra toilet. We have 2 double kayaks and a single to share. Two of which are able to hold your fishing rod and tackle gear. Drive through Akaroa Station in Anakoha Bay to find a group of 3 bachs sharing a huge lawn area and native gardens. Hire 1 or check out the others to book more for larger groups. We have a linen service available at $20 per person (lovely fresh bedding and towels). Otherwise you will need to bring your own. While there are 3 bach rentals close by and the main farm house up the drive, you will still feel secluded and have a sense of privacy with plantings offering natural privacy. Each bach is positioned in different areas of the sloping lawn and all have a different outlook onto the bay. See the aerial photo attached.

Special Amenities

You will most likely be captivated by the coming and going of the Anakoha tide. Fish jumping, dolphins patrolling and seabirds bombing the water. It really is a wonderful place to make memories with loved ones or simply relax and recharge. The accommodation grounds are extensive with a lot of new plantings and a gorgeous vege patch which you are welcome to pick from. You will also notice a lot of citrus and other fruit trees to graze on

Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

Keen on fishing? Bring your boat and launch infront of the bach, head out to nearby hotspots such as Centinal rock or try your luck for cod, snapper and gurnard off the jetty or beach. Birdwatchers bring your binos! You will enjoy seeing our feathered friends all around. Walkers will enjoy the proximity to Mt Stokes. This is a 4-5hr return walk to the highest peak in the Marlborough Sounds. Titirangi farm park is the next bay over and Punga Cove resort is 20min scenic drive if you fancy some fine dining in their restaurant or a casual stay in the cafe over the water.

Akaroa station is one of the gems of the Marlborough sounds and holiday makers are incredibly lucky that the owners have decided to make these houses available for public booking! The Te Puka Bach is a classic Bach with the cosiest old cottage feel about it. The space is perfect for family and friends to chill out together, do jigsaw puzzles etc. and unwind. The kitchen feels just like you're at home and is well stocked. The view from the deck is absolutely amazing and we found it a great place to de-stress and arrange our minds. Something about looking over the peaceful waters of Anakoha bay is very healing. And don't get me started on the fishing. We caught a few dinners from the wharf with the provided fishing gear, but if you've got them, bring the boat and all your gear, you won't regret it. This place suits active relaxers and straight chillers alike, something for everyone!
