A family orientated, simple kiwi holiday home situated on a flat sunny fully fenced section. Located in a quiet historic area with flat drive on access. For the children and pets it is located just down from the Garden of Tane bush reserve and play ground and also is very close to the local area school grounds.

  • 5 of 5

We had such an excellent stay, exactly what we expected, a perfect kiwi batch and in a great location just far enough away from the main street and shops to make it quiet and peaceful. Great property for the dogs, and the batch is practical, relaxed and very homely. Tracey was absolutely wonderful to deal with and we very much look forward to booking this house from her again in the future. THANK YOU TRACEY!!

It was only a short walk to the shops and beach.

It was only a short walk to the shops and beach. I just felt the house in general needed some TLC. The bedding needs to be aired and there are vines growing through the walls.

Taps not working properly, tap itself falling off whenever you use it.

  • 2 of 5

Taps not working properly, tap itself falling off whenever you use it. Switches in bunk room do not work. Three lamps and only one working. One lamp had a 100 watt bulb in it and began to smolder. Lamp underneath said no more than 60 watt but didn't check the wattage before turning on. No one available to advise at Akaroa rental homes - The property was clean. Location was Ideal.

Excellent location.

  • 2 of 5

Excellent location. There is a hole in the fence which looks like it is due to rotting timber and will only get worse. This means the property is not fully fenced for dogs who like to escape. I saw a comment about this just before we left and the owner's answer was to tie the dog to a rope which is kind of mean and really defeats the purpose of the fence. The hot tap in the kitchen has broken off and the oven works but only on one setting.
