A charming historic house with tranquil gardens

Dating back to 1878, this historic home has been lovingly restored and is a peaceful retreat with stunning views of Akaroa. Set in pretty gardens, it is wonderfully secluded yet just a short stroll from the shops and restaurants of Akaroa Harbour. Canapés are served in the evening accompanied by a glass of wine grown in the house’s boutique vineyard.
