Sun drenched home with beautiful views of the harbour. Wake up to amazing bird song in this quiet, warm and private house at the top of Selwyn Avenue. While only a few minutes walk to the hustle and bustle of Akaroa township, its location at the top end of the street means there is little traffic noise in this little sanctuary. Fully renovated and set up with everything needed for a relaxed and comfortable stay. It is also well equipped for families with babies and young children.

About Ben Divett
We (Jody and Ben live in Christchurch with our two beautiful young girls Maddy (3) and Honor (1). We recently purchased Selwyn Serenity and have spent the past 12 months painstakingly renovating the indoor and outdoor space to the highest standard.
Ben Divett purchased this House in 2017
Why Ben Divett chose Akaroa
We love the location - only a stones throw from town yet being at the top of Selwyn Avenue it enjoys great views and beautiful birdlife abounds from the neighbouring bush. There is very little traffic being at the top of the street making it very quiet and feels like a world away from the hustle and bustle of the township below.
What makes this House unique
A lovely view from the lounge and very child friendly area- a safe backyeard with a lawn and play area that flows off the spacious deck.

Beautiful location, the house was really nice and well maintained. Exactly what we wanted for our holiday away. Ben and Jody were very accommodating and even set up a crib for our little boy! Highly recommend.
Lovely house, beautiful views and so close to everything! We loved it!
Outstanding, well equipped property, the perfect rental!
Totally loved the property and wished we could of stayed longer than one night. Of all the houses we have rented around the world this one was the best equipped and best presented upon arrival. You can tell the owners take pride in their property and they were prompt to respond to any requests. If visiting Akaroa I would recommend this house to anybody. If I could give more than 5 stars I would...
Would recommend to everyone.
Was made to feel very welcome will definitely stay again.
We had a fantastic stay in this lovely home. The owners have been more than helpful, with excellent communication. The house has everything you would want. It is impeccably clean, great views of Akaroa Harbour, comfortable in every respect and family friendly. Our two boys loved the toys and books which helped on a rainy stay. We would definitely book again.
Lovely peaceful retreat
