This is a lovely little shabby chic studio with a king 4 poster bed in a great location, across from the water and handy to restaurants and bars. Nice little courtyard. They had done some maintenance since our last visit which was nice to see

Our apartment had lovely views across the harbour and it's a great location within easy walking distance of bars and restaurants. The underfloor heating worked well once the apartment warmed up. The decor was getting a little dated but everything was perfectly adequate. I was a bit disappointed that the toilet sometimes did not stop running (a few extra flushes...

Super efficient service with my last minute enquiry - offered a range of options and prices which made it so easy - thanks! We chose a 2br apartment which gave us lovely ground floor (requested due to injury!) views of the water in two directions. This well furnished apartment also had heated floors in the lounge, kitchen and bathroom. The...

We had a second floor apartment with two bedrooms upstairs. Lovely balcony off the sitting room to sit and enjoy a glass of wine and listen to the lap of the waves. Akaroa is a perfect little French Style village in the most scenic surroundings. Could be busy in the pique periods but off season it was fabulous. Lovely places...

Spent a delightful two night stop at this venue. We were accommodated in a two bedroom unit with living areas on the ground floor and sleeping areas on the upper floor. The view over the harbour is uninterrupted, separated from the water by a small park. The unit was very well equipped and modern, A small patio off the living...

Our 2 bed unit was beautifully furnished with a small wisteria covered balcony off the sitting room where you could sit and admire the lovely view & watch the boats coming & going. There was a full sized kitchen,...

Bright and airy apartments in a traditional style of mainly timber construction. The Bruce Waterfront Apartments overlook the bay (Akaroa harbour) in a very pleasant location. The apartment we stayed in had a view towards the lighthouse from the lounge area of the main living space. This was a split level apartment with open plan kitchen, dining and living all...

“Views can be good but although the road has very little traffic you are still vunrable to any noise so would suggest an apartment set back off the road.”
