We arrived in Akaroa on a Saturday lunchtime and immediately went to the 'i-site' where the helpful assistant told us we would be very lucky to find any accomodation as most motels had a two night minimum. However, we went for a wander and ended up here. The owner was helpful and showed us a studio apartment that was available. We paid $215 for this which was the most expensive we paid on our whole trip. The apartment had a separate room with two single beds and then a studio area with a double bed, seating and kitchenette. The view from the little balcony was stunning as it looked out across the water. It was a nice bright unit which seemed modern and airy. We were happy with our night here, although there was some noise during the night from nearby residents. All in all it was a pleasant stay. Akaroa is a great place, but very busy at the weekend.
