There could not have been a better start to our holiday in New Zealand then to stay the first 3 nights in the Gatekeeper’s Cottage. It was simply perfect. Thanks so much to our hosts Wendy and Mark for everything. They were so kind to us and we loved talking to them. We liked the silence of nature, the stars at night, waking up with the sunlight, walking over the hills around the house, sitting in the yard on a sunny day and enjoying the peaceful area. The two rooms are spacious (one downstairs, one upstairs) with many nice details. The bed was very comfortable. We used the kitchenette only for the breakfast. It is only a short drive to Akaroa. We recommend Vangionis Trattoria and Bar, the restaurant of the son. The pizza is really special there. We highly recommend this accommodation and the restaurant too.
