A lovely quaint rural retreat, a little away from the town, but only a 2-3 minute drive down the hill, so not a problem. The property we stayed in was at the entrance to the property, it had a fantastic garden with a lovely stream running through it. The property itself was a little tired but with a lot of...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are pleased you enjoyed the garden and stream. It is a pity you had a problem finding us. We have tried to make that easy for people. To begin with there is a map on our website. Once at the property there is a large sign hanging at the...

We stayed here two nights in gatekeepers cottage in November. We were immediately struck by the flowers and well kept gardens, especially around the little courtyard outside the door. Keepers cottage was well furnished , clean with good Wi-Fi but no TV......no great loss in NZ ! The cottage is next to the main house on a small lifestyle estate...

What a great holiday experience!! The gatekeepers cottage is a magical, peaceful apartment attached to the main house and surrounded by picturesque gardens . Set up in the hills it felt so secluded and private yet it was only a short drive down the road to Akaroa township. The hosts, Mark and Wendy were very welcoming and were able to...

Had two very restful nights at Kokopu Estate staying in their Gatekeeper's Cottage. Room furnishings were country French, charming and very comfortable, including the bed. Other than making coffee and tea, which seemed particularly flavourful (perhaps due to Kokopu's own spring water), had no expectations of preparing meals but could have done something basic with the kitchen appliances provided. Enjoyed...

A lovely place to stay when visiting beautiful Akaroa. The self-contained unit sits in beautiful countryside but is only a short drive into town (a bit far to walk easily). It’s a quiet and peaceful place to stay and a good base from which to explore the area. The kitchen area is small but functional. The only real downside for...

Thank you for your review. We are surprised by your comments about the bed, as we have many guests who tell us how comfortable it is. It is a very expensive mattress and not supposed to roll together so I am disappointed to read that you found it too soft. Other than that, you seemed to have enjoyed your stay...

Kokopu Estate is much more than just a B&B as we felt as though we were staying with friends. As an Anglo-New Zealand couple living in the UK, staying with Wendy and Mark absolulely hit the spot with us.

We have now been to Kokopu Estate twice, which tells you something about it!! Great place to get away and recharge the batteries. Would also recommend Vangionis Trattoria and Bar for a bite =to eat and a drink!

The whole estate is stunning,  just a few minutes away from the centre of town. The room was comfortable and clean, and the breakfast was delicious (we wish we could have tried  all the options!). Mark and Wendy are friendly and helpful hosts with loads of local knowledge they are happy to share. A great place to stay,  fully recommended!

We can highly recommend Kokopu Estate for a great get away destination. We got married in October 2014 in the grounds of the Kokopu Cottage and it was wonderful. Fantastic photos in amazing settings. Thanks Mark & Wendy for making our wedding special. Sue & Wayne

This was the most awesome place to stay! Wendy and Mark were so hospitable, we got stuck in Akaroa because of the weather and they were so awesome. I loved the gatekeepers cottage, peaceful, beautiful setting, a romantic getaway but so close to town. Everything you needed was there. Would love to go again!
