We stayed in the Gatekeeper's cottage which was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. It was located in a garden setting with a stone patio. Our hosts Wendy & Mark were warm and friendly and made us feel at home. The family dog even joined us for a walk up the hill to the viewpoint. Great accommodation and we would definitely... More

I recently stayed with Wendy and Mark at the Kokopu Estate and I found it to be simply charming! Firstly the little red cottage at the entrance to the estate is a rustic retreat not to be missed. Entering the property is like stepping back in time. The living room is cosy with comfortable chairs and sofas perfect for snuggly... More

My husband and I stayed in their home for two nights in the Potager's Suite. Truthfully, this was the best place we stayed during our first three week trip to New Zealand. We usually do not choose to stay in B&B's because we enjoy our privacy, but we are so very glad we chose to do so. Wendy and Mark... More

For us city dwellers, staying at the red cottage is a bit of a shock. We never realized that total privacy and creature comfort could coexist in such harmony. The cottage is well equipped and the garden is both beautiful and enigmatic, revealing itself at every turn. No TV, no internet, just you and your loved one to explore the... More

We were a little surprised at the recent negative review from Travelbug95682. My wife and I along with our two daughters in their twenties were the "prior occupants" they mention. Along with other Akaroa residents, we were also caught out by the torrential rain and fierce gales that resulted in the road closure, loss of power and phone. The local... More

If you like rustic, this is the place for you. We arrived after a huge storm that closed the road into Akaroa and cut the power. When we arrived we found the Kokopu Cottage we had rented was occupied by the prior occupants. They had been allowed to stay, because of the road closure. We were offered to stay in... More

The accommodation here is very high quality. A lovely quiet estate in scenic surroundings a few minutes from the town. You can have room only, self catering or B&B. If the latter, the breakfasts are superb. The lady owner tries to get you to both have the same breakfast but as you are paying $50NZ for two breakfasts on top... More

Two of us wanted a quiet weekend to ourselves. This was a perfect choice. We have just left their property after staying two nights in the Potager Room. This was a large bedroom and a full sized bathroom next door for our exclusive use. We were invited to use the beautiful large lounge with leather furniture, an open fire (which... More

A group of us stayed with Wendy and Mark at their beautiful estate earlier this month. In addition to being perfect hosts and accommodating our every need, the property was a great place for the six of us to stay and explore. We went for a walk to the top of the mountain above the property accompanied by their dog... More

We stayed one night in the Potager room and two nights in the Gatekeepers Cottage. The Potager is upstairs in the main house with a very comfortable, attractive and clean private bedroom and bathroom. After one night we moved to the Gatekeepers Cottage for two nights. This had been our choice, made prior to arriving and was based upon availability... More
