We spent 6 glorious nights hidden away in Kokopu cottage. It was a perfect location for us to explore Akaroa and the surrounding countryside both on foot and by car. It was wonderful to wake up to the sounds of the birds and the babbling stream every morning. The cottage is well equipped and comfortable with impressive views up to...

Our stay at the Gatekeepers Cottage was very enjoyable and Wendy and Mark went out of their way to ensure that we got the best from our time in Akaroa. The location was rural whilst only a five minute drive from the centre of Akaroa.

Stunning hidden retreat, relaxed tasteful décor and a view out every window. Loved the birdsong and the native bush. Romantic, fabulous outdoor bath topped off a great weekend. The attention to detail of this restored cottage was a joy, we hope to be back to enjoy the fire in the winter.

We stayed in the little cottage, there is also a B&B option at the house. The house is wonderfully restored with a beautiful big open fire. Just outside the back door is a babbling brook with friendly eel and native planting. A small bridge crosses the creek and a path meanders into the native bush where you will discover a...

If you are looking for a romantic getaway for two - or just a wonderful escape from reality - Kokopu Cottage in Akaroa is absolutely magical. Part of the Kokopu Estate, friendly hosts Wendy & Mark live on site up the hill and after years of running this multi-site B&B accommodation destination, have the art of hosting down to a...

Time to check New Zealand off of our bucket list, and boy did we find just the right place to call home in Akaroa! It is your own little hide away surrounded by amazing beauty from our Gate Keepers cottage window, and the main part of the house as well. The real plus for us was that it was hidden...

We visited Akaroa and stayed in the Kokopu cottage. It is in the valley just as you enter in to Akaroa. It is a gem of a wee cottage completely surrounded by beautiful bush. There is a stream running right past - I can image in the summer it would be fab to be sitting outside and absorbing everything around....

Most gorgeous cottage with open fireplace. Best bed that we have ever slept in. Lovely garden setting. Did not use the outdoor bath due to rainy weather but this would be fun! Plenty of firewood and kindling replenished daily. Ideally suited to family of 4.

I stayed in Kokopu Cottage for two nights and it was lovely. I booked it for the outdoor bathtub and it was heavenly. I didn't know how to light the fire to heat the water so Wendy and Mark helped me out with that and I had a lovely hot soak in the cool evening breeze. It was a divine...

In April 2015, my husband and I spent the first few days of our honeymoon at Kokopu Estate. The experience was magical. The property is lovely and sprawling, with fruit trees and a sheep pasture. We stayed in Potager Suite, which is upstairs in the main house. The suite was well-equipped with a tea kettle, a huge bathtub, matching bathrobes,...
