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 experience. The cottage itself is very comfortable. I was traveling solo, but it can very easily sleep three. Akaroa is just a five minute drive away. The grounds are great for wandering about. I definitely recommend Kokopu if you're going to visit Akaroa.

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, and all kinds of other amenities. Mark and Wendy were genuinely kind and as thougthful as can be. Their hospitality was one of the most endearing parts of our honeymoon. They constantly offered us tea and treats, many of which were homemade using ingredients from around the estate. They also went out of their way to help us create a wonderful itinerary for the rest of our travels in NZ, even suggesting we leave their B&B a day or two early so we could see all the things we wanted to see. The breakfasts were charming, delicious, and abundant, complete with garnishes from their gardens. The beginning of our trip was rainy/snowy, so we camped out in front of their giant fireplace with good books, so glad for rest and relaxation in the midst of our busy lives. I guarantee you Mark and Wendy will make you feel special and give you a warm, memorable experience you will want to come back to time and again. It was as magical an experience as we had hoped for.

Room Tip: Potager Suite was wonderful. It's upstairs in the main house.

The location is remote and rustic though not hard to reach. Owners are helpful and willing to assist.
We stayed couple of nights here and loved the quiet location. It is ideal for a good rest and relax.

We stayed in the quaint Kokopu Cottage for 3 nights. It had a rustic feel but was well kept and clean with a very comfortable bed, comfortable couches and lovely log fire. We didn't have any issue with hot water and found the shower great. We loved the fantails and the geese wandering around as well as the little stream at the back. The outdoor bath looked interesting but we didn't try it. Yes there is no TV or Internet in this cottage but they had cards and board games and if you really need the internet you could go up to the house or to the local library. It's only a 5 minute drive to the shops and restaurants and a completely relaxing and different experience which we loved. The hosts Wendy and Mark are also very friendly and the whole property delightful.
