“Great Place to start”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2007

We arrived on Christams Eve and had a great 3 days including a brilliant Christmas dinner, with some of the nicest salmon we have ever had. Jim and Liz were great hosts and the evening wine was a great touch. We left very early on the 27th and were provided with a small picnic for our journey. Very Highly recommended as is Akaroa.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2005

We spent our last night in New Zealand after a two week trip, at Wilderness House. Akaroa is beautiful and quaint, and the Wilderness House is a gorgeous historic home close to downtown. You can feel the french influence in Akaroa.
The owners, Jim and Liz were fantastic!! They made us feel very welcome in their home--with a wine reception just for our family after we arrived with wine from the grapes in their vineyard! And after we got home from dinner we enjoyed a glass of port with them and invited them to play some cards with us, which they did! We actually stayed up until about 2am talking with Jim and hearing some wonderful stories.
The next morning we had a delicious gourmet breakfast with fresh salmon and eggs, and we were truly sad to leave our gracious hosts, their beautiful home, and New Zealand.
If you are in Akaroa, we highly recommend a stay at Wilderness House--you won't be disappointed!
