Akaroa Coastal Cottage
The Akaroa Coastal Cottage enjoys magnificent sea views from its secluded setting in native bush. Wake to a chorus of bellbirds, look for dolphins from the terrace or lie back with a book and watch our magnificent mamaku tree-fern koru unfurl.

The cottage sleeps 6 and is sunny, warm and well-equipped with modern appliances, barbeque, heat pump, large bath, SkyTV and WiFi.

Escape to paradise at The Point, an off-the-grid, cliff-top retreat in Pigeon Bay. Sea views, spacious comfortable design, open fires indoors & out and a private swimming cove, make this a unique stay. Winner of Bach of the Year 2017 (Eco Category), The Point is just as luxurious as it is functional, with industrial and copper accents, and two super-king sized bedrooms with sea views. Kick back by the large open fireplace for a cosy winter hideaway, or head outside for the ultimate al fresco dining by the outdoor fireplace on a summer’s evening.
The sun-catching lawn and private swimming cove on-site provide ample opportunities for relaxation. If you do decide to set out, Akaroa is just 20 minutes away.
Please note special conditions:
This property is not suitable for children under 13 due to extensive sheer drop offs from cliffs, as well as access to swimming cove.
Te Wepu-intrepid pod retreats
Te Wepu-intrepid pod retreats
In just over an hour from Christchurch, you will find your perch above one of the most tranquil bays on Canterbury’s magnificent Banks Peninsula. Far from the tour bus hoards, you’ll sink in to a steaming wood-fired hot tub under an abundance of stars and, if you choose, you can even enjoy sumptuous local fare delivered to your door.
Although you’ll be a 15-minute walk from the nearest road - in the midst of a working cattle farm - you’ll sleep on real beds in double-glazed, New Zealand-made pods; more solid than canvas, much more romantic than an ordinary hotel room.
If you’re an adventurous soul – whether travelling in a small group, on an adventure for two or flying solo – and you want an idyllic spot in which to stop, relax, read and breathe in the silence, Te Wepu is just the place.
Your hosts Kate and Richie Bocock have a background in farming in various parts of New Zealand, and are now happy to be settled next to the sea. They feel privileged to have taken on this storied patch of paradise. With their family, they have worked hard to create a unique experience for New Zealanders and foreign tourists alike.
Kate and Richie want you to have a special and unforgettable experience, so they’ll work with you to establish key details such as your arrival time (so the tub can be hot!) and whether you’ll be wanting one of Kate’s legendary Te Wepu hampers (hot tip: you do!!).
To fully appreciate the Te Wepu experience we recommend you take the 20-30 minute hike, through a Rhododendron dell and a Walnut grove, alongside the Te Wepu stream, and finish with a short intrepid climb through farmland to your Pod. This does require sturdy shoes and a sense of adventure.
Alternatively, we will take the 4WD, with your bags, up to your Pod. Given enough warning you will arrive to a warm hot tub – an abundance of firewood will make it easy for you to keep it hot!
Your hosts Kate and Richie do ask that you check-in and out during daylight hours - the pods are off a farm track and there are no street lights up there!!
Once you are at your Pod, you can either prepare and cook your food that you've bought yourself, on the BBQ that is provided. Or you have arrived to one of Kate's hampers (some basic cooking skills are still required but it is as simple as turning the BBQ on and flipping a steak). Kate's hamper can be ordered at the time of booking.
On the morning of check-out, your hosts will bring the 4x4 to collect you and your luggage or you can wander back down the marked track in your own time and meet your bags at the carpark.
