After a 10 day South Island trip our party of 8 adults stayed at Akaroa House. We all agreed this to be our favourite accommodation out of several very good ones. Not only was it spacious, comfortable clean and very well equipped, it was stylishly furnished and with views to die for.
Our hosts Alison and Ross were very friendly and accommodating. Thankyou both for the privilege of staying in you home.

Hello John - lovely to have you stay at Akaroa House and nice to meet you all, whilst we were next door. So pleased you loved the house and the views are always stunning :) Trust settling back to work hasn't been too onerous. Kind Regards A :)

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?

What a fabulous house! A group of friends stayed there for 2 nights after completing the Banks Peninsular Track. The kitchen was to die for! Didn't want to leave the house to eat out so bought supplies from the local shops and cooked up a storm in the kitchen. Only complaint was we didn't have enough time there. Our stay at Akaroa House was the "icing on the cake" after 4 hard days of walking! We would definitely stay there again!

Thank you for your feedback and Akaroa House would be a lovely treat after four days of walking the Banks Peninsula Track - well done. The house does provide great dining options - inside or out depending on the season. Kind regards Alison .

We had an amazing time staying at Akaroa House - the house was perfect in many ways, and it facilitated a very successful coming together of two families. There were so many spaces for family to hang out, and everyone was very relaxed. We used the house as a reception venue for a small wedding, and it worked incredibly well. We feel very lucky to have been able to have that weekend, and by all accounts it will go down in family history as something special.

The owners of the house are very efficient, friendly and were responsive to our queries. Our family are thinking of doing the whole thing again!

A fantastic house for a group or a very large family. Loads of room for everyone to spread out and have space. Great cooking facilities, not that we used them because we ate out at fabulous Akaroa restaurants, and plenty of bathrooms. Great location on the hill with a lovely lawn for early evening drinks. Loved our stay at Akaroa House and highly recommend it.

thanks so much for your reviews ladies. Akaroa House and the Cooking School do work so well together for a fun get together. The house is a lovely spot for overlooking the village. Servicing may be available if desired. Have a great summer : )
