We get together with very close friends every six months. Our last Sept 2014 we selected Akaroa House after excellent communication with the owners. Well what a house, every room and every detail just excellent, topped off with a well stocked gift basket for the 9 of us to share. What impressed us the most is the attention to detail.... More

We stayed here for our annual "girls weekend away" and found everything to be just perfect. We had plenty of room, and being 7 women together - plenty of bathrooms for all. I loved having the fire, sky tv to watch international rugby, and such a beautiful setting to sit and relax. The house is beautifully appointed, with everything we... More

Celebrated a family occasion here in August and had the most fantastic time- the house is absolutely gorgeous and very well decorated. Everything we needed was in the house so it felt very comfortable and welcoming. Even the little things that had been pre-organised eg. setting the fire, made such a difference. House is in a great location, with a... More

We booked Akaroa House to meet up with our daughter at a halfway spot between Nelson and her home in Dunedin. Being close to CHCH also gave us the opp to invite some old and new friends along to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary. From the moment we walked in we knew we were in for a great weekend and...

Just spent a wonderful weekend with old friends at Akaroa House. The house and grounds were beautiful and Alison's attention to detail was what made this a "home away from home". We enjoyed having a bathroom each (there were 4 of us) and a lovely kitchen. The outdoor area was well planned with plenty of areas to sit in the... More

This place is everything you want it to be and more! We have had two truly wonderful stays at this magical house…for our wedding and our anniversary. The gorgeous decor in every room was fantastic for pre-wedding photos, as was the expansive garden with breath-taking views. And on a quiet street, with a well stocked kitchen, and the amazing bath... More

We took our church staff team away to Akaroa and loved the attention to detail and care shown at Akaroa House. The whole house is immaculate in condition and the grounds and view over Akaroa made our stay a treat. So many different needs had been thought of and our host Alison was very responsive and warm.

During our 4 week tour of Australia and New Zealand South Island, we stayed in 15 different types of accommodation including hotels and private houses. We were lucky to be travelling with friends and family that enabled us to stay in some lovely, larger properties but Akaroa House was the icing on the cake. After the lads cooked a fab... More
