Akaroa Rental Homes
What makes this House unique
Just off waterfront up a quiet shared driveway. Totally removed for the hussle and bussle
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
It was cold and wet on our visit but we were cosy inside (with all three heaters going!) so enjoyed ourselves. Great views of the ocean in any weather. Would like to come back sometime when we can use the deck and BBQ.
A charming place to stay in a lovely peaceful location
A mixed experience
The house has a lovely setting and we did enjoy our stay overall. As a traditional NZ bach, the basics were generally OK, we didn't feel, however that we were getting a particularly good customer experience - one toilet roll for 3 nights, no iron, limited clothes storage. Whilst we were provided, on request and with additional cost with linen, this wasn't an option offered in the property description and for overseas travellers, it really is an essential. So a lovely place to be, with the overall experience spoilt a bit by a few little things that could so easily be fixed with a bit of care.
Idylic setting with fabulous views
This is the second time we have used this batch.The first was some 6 years ago.Our stay was very enjoyable and comfortable. However the interior is now well overdue for an inexpensive refurbished upgrade with new lino and paint throughout a priority.The outside walls would benefit from a wash down and paint. .On going maintenance of this absolute gem should be a given It was pleasing to hear that a new deck and replacement of the hand rails was supposed to be starting shortly. The current hand rail and decking timber is in poor condition. It would not comply with OSH standards and is a potential hazard for young children..
We will be booking this batch again in he coming years but not until the above issues have been resolved.
Old but perfectly functional batch with a lovely view
Old but perfectly functional batch with a lovely view. We really enjoyed our stay relaxing and looking at the water. Property is the 3rd house back off the road and Google maps directed us to Clare Ln instead (wrong!). We couldn't see any numbers at the road despite knowing it was up a driveway. Steep access to the property from car to door which older people may find challenging, especially with key pickup up disintegrating staircase. We really enjoyed our stay though, and would return!
Wonderful Quirky Kiwi Bach - Takes you back to a bygone era!
Classic kiwi Bach from the 70’s - you literally take a step back in time. Everything you need to bunk down for an escape in Akaroa. Nice walking distance to town, lighthouse & cruises.
We enjoyed our stay, few tips to improve for the future: simple curtains or blinds in bedrooms would be good, nice free flow soap in the bathroom, ensure gas is full for BBQ.
Thanks very much for the feedback.
