Akaroa on the Beach
Ranked #11 of 24 Speciality Lodging in Akaroa
Reviewed 28 November 2016

This was the perfect spot for our small and intitmate wedding. We booked out the whole place and got married on the deck of the seaview apartment. The booking process was simple, and Mary in particular was very helpful and accommodating. I would definitely come back to stay with a group of friends, or even on our own, in which case I'd book the Seaview or Penthouse apartments. All the apartments (esp. Seaview) are well equipped with great views. The Island Room is somewhat small and located at the back of the house, but it worked perfectly for our needs. If you want a relaxing spot away from the hustle and bustle of town, you definitley want to stay here. Such special memories.

We stopped here for 2 nights before flying home to Brisbane, Akaroa is a lovely French influence place to stop over in. Short walk to town. Was a little bit confusing getting into this accommodation, because there is no office, you had to ring the secretary and obtain the secret pin number to enter to obtain the key to let you into your apartment. We stayed on the ground floor, cosy with lovely view of the bay. Only a Double Bed and fold out sofa's, it was comfortable for us, maybe not for a family. The other rooms upstairs are bigger.

Stayed: March 2016

Recently stayed in the 'Island Room' at Akaroa on the Beach for 2 nights. Room was enough for a couple, has no cooking facilities (which is explained both on the website and at time of booking so no surprises here). Heater was turned on for us before arrival, very nice touch :). Bed was comfortable with adequate blankets and towels. Only down side was that we ran out of toilet paper on the last day! Free internet included which is very hard to find, even in this modern era.

Room Tip: If you are staying for a while, would recommend a room with cooking facilities.

We arrived to unwind and relax and that certainly was what happened. A lovely self contained unit (we had the Seaview room) one of only three in residential Akaroa looking out at a beautiful peaceful harbour with only the sound of the birds.
Would highly recommend

This beautiful penthouse apartment is slightly out of the main part of town and so it felt very private and special. However it was very quick and easy to walk in to Akaroa along the sea front. It felt like a home rather than a rental, with many little touches like books, paintings, individual pottery, colourful linen and copious equipment in the kitchen.
There is a lovely balcony with comfy seating and plenty of places to relax inside too. There's also a free laundry and a washing line- quite unusual in our experience.
We certainly struck lucky with this choice.
