We have stayed at this lovely home three times and it has never failed to delight. Very well equipped with a great kitchen and lots of dishes, serving ware, glasses the lot. The lovely large dining table and all fresco sitting areas lend themselves to entertaining and we always do at least one massive family feast. Everything is top quality, but not intimidatingly so, the slipper bath is a delight and the heat pumps, log burner and gas fire ensures every one is cozy whatever the weather. The rooms are good sizes and have lovely clean linen. Our English son considers this his NZ holiday home, and now wouldn't think of coming without a stopover at Akaroa House. Special place, special memories, lovely hosts, what more could you want?
