We’d visited Akaroa some years ago, but were pleased to see that nothing we had enjoyed has changed and the things that were new to us only improve on that impression. Maybe the French should have stayed a little longer here after all? Akaroa is a real gem. The landscapes are breath-taking, the views are ridiculous, and the weather is kind (at least to us).
But enough about the location – the “Maison” lives up to its surrounds and then some. The rooms are beautifully furnished and decorated, the care shown by the hosts is faultless and the marriage between the accommodations and the atmosphere of the local area is seamless. We've stayed in a number of NZ B&Bs before and the Maison really is right up there in every way. My wife and I sometimes dream about running our own B&B sometimes (on trips like these), but we do wonder at times if we could match this!! Thanks again!
