We have just spent 8 magical nights at Kokopu Estate staying at the Kokopu Cottage. We discovered this gem of a place some years ago and even after four separate stays our enthusiasm and appreciation has never waned. It is tucked away in the peaceful Grehan valley and is far enough from Akoroa to escape the tourists but only a... More

My husband and I stayed here only for one night on our way to Christchurch. We wish we had more time there! We originally had planned a few activties for our visit to Akaroa, but as soon as we arrived at the B&B, we immediately knew that we would rather relax and enjoy the B&B property and grounds. The property... More

We stayed 4 nights in the main house as B&B as the cottages were taken. The house is exceptional - Kauri floors, huge fireplace, lots of space and details to discover. We were offered homemade organic wine when we arrived, and a different cooked and very tasty breakfast each morning, often with vegetables of their own garden. A beautiful place... More

We went during French Fest and cannot wait to return! The beauty, tranquillity and charm was extraordinary and the warmth of the hosts topped it off! I loved waking up to birdsong each morning and the bubbling river! I didn't try the outdoor bath but certainly will next time.

My husband and I recently spent 3 nights in one of the cottages on this estate! The stay exceeded our expectations ten fold! What an incredible setting, wonderful tranquil relaxing environment, a beautifully furnished cottage. We couldn't have been happier! Thank you so much. We took our two beagles along, who loved the garden. Fantastic holiday. Highly recommend to everyone.

I found Kokopu Cottage via a Google Search and immediately knew it was THE place to stay in Akaroa! It's very close to town, situated on a beautiful piece of land and extremely well equipped. From the moment I drove in the gate, I could tell I was going to enjoy my stay. The lovely hosts had written me a... More

This is a well seasoned venue, with experienced hosts. I cannot fault the "attention to detail". The bed was superb, and did I mention the linen? Ooooh la la! I was able to cook myself a gourmet breakfast (fabulous meats supplied by the Akaroa Butchery), as Gatekeepers Cottage thoughtfully supplied all necessary kitchen equipment; right down to the cooking oil,...

I brought my parents to Akaroa for four nights as a thank-you, and Kokopu Cottage was just perfect. We loved the ambience of the old cottage, the beautiful linens and the bellbirds and hares in the garden. The weather was glorious for the first two days and we enjoyed wandering around the shops in Akaroa and then lunching by the... More

We (my boyfriend and I from Germany) had an amazing stay of 2 days at the Gate Keepers. Lovely furnished bedroom incl. small kitchen, bath room, lounge and a sunny terrace (everything very clean). The Gate Keepers is quietly situated – there are only birds in the morning that sing their songs. We also walked to Akaroa and did some... More

We had a lovely stay in the Gate Keepers and highly recommend staying there for a relaxing, peaceful break away. Beautifully presented and tucked just far enough from Akaroa township to offer spectacular views and but still nice and close so that you can easily pop out for a stroll around the town. The food was great and Wendy and... More
