We loved our stay here. We stayed in the main house and had a queen bed. The toilets were (1) inside, (2) outside. Two indoor kitchens, and a big outdoor kitchen. The staff is wonderful. This was a cozy, warm environment. We loved hiking for hours on the owners' land with views of Akaroa Harbor, the ocean, and farmlands. You will need a car here as it is quite a long steep climb out of the town. However, the owner will happily shuttle you to and fro if need be. The grounds are so extensive that you can have privacy or communicate with fellow travelers in many settings. We did not stay outdoors or in the separate cabins or tent sites--though I would if I had the equipment. We would stay here again in a heartbeat! Linda Depper
