“Excellent accommodation in quiet rural location”
Reviewed 2 March 2008

The farm is 5 to 10 minutes from Akaroa village. Accomodation is excellent, with a separate entrance to main house. Good value for money (full cooked breakfast), evening meal is also an option for an extra $25 per person.

Hanne and Paul are friendly hosts and very knowledgeable about the local area; they also run seal tours, and Paul's family have lived in Akaroa for many generations (we found furniture made by one of his ancestors in Akaroa Museum!).

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Stay on a real New Zealand farm and share in our love of the land, its plants and animals. Our home is situated 1.5 km up the Takamatua valley, only 5 km from Akaroa. We farm sheep and cattle and usually have a menagerie of animals around. Hanne is a keen horse woman and Danish in origin, speaking the language fluently. Paul is a direct descent of the original French settlers. We invite you to enjoy some good old-fashioned country hospitality in our spacious, yet cosy, farmhouse. A trip to the Akaroa Seal Colony is a must do. Safari includes a scenic drive through a working farm with the farmer. ... more   less
