A delightful very private modern arts and crafts style cottage set in a rural area. It is only a 10 minute walk from Akaroa's main street 1.5 km away. Peace and quiet is assured here, except for the noisy dawn chorus. The cottage is fully self contained with ensuite bathroom, adjoining kitchenette area and a separate downstairs living room. A french inspired private courtyard has quality outdoor furniture with a water feature fish pond.

The space
We provide a simple help yourself breakfast with fresh coffee and organic teas.

My partner Paula and I bought this house late 2018 as a refuge from Wellington and our strong desire to live on the South Island living alongside nature.
