We stayed at Akaroa House in November 2009. This was a fiftieth birthday celebration for two of the 6 of us. We had intended to sample local restaurants but the kitchen was so beautiful we cooked our meals instead and spent most of our time at the house drinking wine, talking, reading and generally relaxing. The rooms were amazing - lots of period charm but with modern bathrooms and amazing views. the grounds are beautiful. Akaroa is a great place to visit - we did venture out on one boat trip which was good but we froze!! But the highlight of our trip was the fabulous house which was kust what we needed for a happy reunion and birthday.
