My husband and I stayed with Rosemary at the Room with a View B&B on our recent trip to Akaroa. We couldn't have been more pleased .... not only was the historic house lovely and the views phenomenal, Rosemary herself was the true gem of our stay. She was so warm and friendly we didn't want to leave! If you are looking for a home-stay in Akaroa and really want to feel a part of the community, then look no further. Rosemary's gardens are absolutely amazing ... lemon, avocado, apple, and tangerine trees as well as lovingly-tended roses and flowers. If you are lucky, Rosemary might even introduce you to her garden chicken. We will absolutely be back!
