We stayed for two nights, although we had planned to stay for three but something came up and we had to get back to the big bad city in the Nth Island.
Lovely, charming self contained cottage with beautiful views. When we woke up in the morning we could see the snow on the mountain tops from the window above the bed, beautiful. Also lovely scenic walks up the mountain. Akaroa itself is quite charming too. Would love to visit again, in the summer this time. Would stay again.
