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.

The trouble-and-strife's "milestone" birthday saw 9 of the extended family celebrating in beautiful Akaroa and veging out at Akaroa House. A tastefully restored and enlarged heritage home, Akaroa House offers spacious and luxurious accommodation while at once feeling "at home". Alison was an efficient yet unobtrusive host and overall our experience could not be faulted. A sad and reluctant good-bye... More

What a fabulous house! A group of friends stayed there for 2 nights after completing the Banks Peninsular Track. The kitchen was to die for!
