Akaroa House is exquisite; a perfect place to escape in luxury and style. The house has a wonderful feeling of history, but the overriding feeling is of home. What a treat when you're far away from your own bed. Every bedroom has a superb view and the covered deck on three sides of the house means you can soak in the view from everywhere outside too... and when you open up the lounge and dining room doors you achieve the perfect Kiwi indoor outdoor flow. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the linen is beautiful, plus there is great provision for summer and winter. The furniture in every room is beautiful, adding to the luxury of the setting. The lounge is comfy, though as a bigger group we found that we spent most of our time outside or sitting at the long dining room table nearer the kitchen - and the all important kettle. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook up a storm, but as we were only a few minutes from town we grabbed fish and chips and ate on the deck in the sunshine. Alison was a fabulous host, going out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. She even returned a pair of shoes that were left under the bed after our stay. Our experience was all the more fabulous as we held our wedding in the beautiful garden during our stay, but even without that, the trip could only have been enhanced by being there for longer. I cannot recommend Akaroa House highly enough. Next time I'm staying for a week and trying out the French tub!
