We stayed in 'Rowan' which must have the very best views of the harbour. The accommodation was spacious with a great outside area where we could sit and relax. Rick was very welcoming and helpful, we ate where he suggested and had a fantastic meal.

We stayed there for 3 nights. We had a studio suite, which was fine but next time I might book a different cottage. It was very clean and quiet. Lovely view. Could use a bit more closet space - for clothing and for groceries. Washer and dryer was useful. Bed very comfortable.

We stayed at the Cottages for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our cabin was a bedroom, bathroom and lounge/kitchen. The bedroom and bathroom were fine and the lounge/kitchen was excellent - big and comfortable with a TV, fridge,microwave and hobtop. The cabins were cleaned daily with coffee, tea and chocolate replenished. We were awakened by birdsong and had our... More

Quiet and well appointed cottages overlooking Akaroa and the bay. A five minute drive from downtown Akaroa, with its opportunities for cruises on the bay, shopping and a variety of decent restaurants. The cottages are spacious, very comfortable, and full of light while providing a forest buffer from other cottages and the road. We awakened to bird calls and sunshine.... More

We stayed in Rowan. This must be the most peaceful accommodation in New Zealand. Set in trees over looking the harbour. The facilities are excellent & very compact. We used the BBQ which actually hadn't been cleaned although it says an extra charge will be made if left dirty. The only negative would be the wi- fi most places we... More

Stayed overnight recently on south island trip. Cottages whilst not 2015 vintage are modern enough with decent facilities (kitchen etc), great views and very quiet. The cottages sit nestled into the bush surroundings so expect to see some wildlife (which is nice). Only a short drive or 5 min walk to town. A very pleasant stay and if you are... More

This facility is perfectly placed for those who want to get away. I spend a lot of time in hotels around the world so these cottages were a welcome relief. The management and Rick are lovely and very helpful. Highly recommended.

Great view and a realy nice setting. The staff are friendly and professional. The 3 bedroom cottage was clean and the beds were comfortable. The cottage was in need of an update and showing the signs of use. The bbq was not as pictured.

We stayed at landside seaview cottage. Loved everything about it. Private. An alrite view of the sea. Sky. Double spa bath. Fireplace with kindling ready to go! Free fudge. The driveway is a bit steep but they have a one way system going and this seems to work fine. My issue is with their service. I booked online on their... More
