“Perfect start to our holiday”
Reviewed 15 April 2006

Kokopu Farm just outside Akaroa on the Banks Peninsula was the perfect start to our holiday in New Zealand. It's been restored by Wendy and Mark (Bradley) to the highest of standards and the apartment in which we stayed is attached to the house. It's fitted out to the highest standard (the bed is fantastic) and the private garden area is just lovely, surrounded as it is by hills and perfect peace. The apartment and garden are filled with Mark's artistic works and Wendy's impeccable taste but best of all are the hosts themselves. I remember an evening spent in the garden with them and a glass or two of wine and also Wendy picking peaches from their tree on a glorious sunny morning and leaving some for us on the table for our breakfast. We have such good memories of our stay in beautiful, sunny New Zealand and our stay here is one of the best. We stayed on a self-catering basis but B & B accommodation is available at the apartment and the farmhouse itself, and there is also a pretty cottage. We were only there for three nights unfortunately, Kokopu farm and Akaroa would most definitely repay a longer stay.
