This place is Heaven. We did not want to leave. The cottage is stunning with a wood burning stove and well stocked fridge and is set in the most beautiful gardens with its own stream. Rosie and Alistair were so friendly and helpful and provided the best B&B breakfast I have ever had. We had not originally planned to go...

You feel as if you have stepped back in time (with all the modern conveniences) while staying at Mill Cottage. One feels as if you have your own little slice of paradise with gardens and greenery surrounding you from your wrap around porch. Rosie and Alisdair were perfect hosts always there when needed and giving you the feeling of complete...

We stayed in the Garden Room for the last two nights of our South Island honeymoon - a spectacular finish to a wonderful trip! Rosie and Alistair are wonderful, attentive hosts who made us feel right at home with many thoughtful details to welcome us and useful advice about Akaroa. They helped us make a reservation for dinner in town...

we stayed 2 nights in the main cottage. Rooms as wedding favors, beautiful patio and garden. Virtually facing a veritable botanical garden with a stream running beside it. Owners very friendly and nice. The cottage where every woman would want to live.

The climbing roses on the wrap around porch frame your view of the seemingly endless lush gardens of hydrangeas and lavender. Charming and quaint, the restored 1872 cabin has its quirts (shower at one end, toilet at the other), but it offers extreme privacy and the ultimate in restful environments. When you make a reservation, be sure to specify whether...

This place is beautiful, a HIDDEN GEM, full of historical charm, character and cosy comforts. What a find! So glad we stayed there. A highlight to our fantastic NZ trip. Reasonably priced too considering you get the whole cosy historic cottage to yourself ,and you can enjoy the huge garden filled with fruit trees, and a cooked breakfast is provided....

This was a real surprise. We were totally bowled over by the beauty of this place. It is set back up off the main drag and there is just the most incredible silence around it. The cottage is magnificantly restored and and the owners are fantastic people. We could have stayed here longer but our schedule did not allow, Highlights...

Mill Cottage, in the French-settled village of Akaroa, is a discovery we congratulated ourselves over finding. The owners, Delyse and Brian Stringett, went all the way to perfect our (sadly) one-night stay on a five-day car trip between the two islands and trout fishing ranches. It is one of those bucolic, throw-back little paradises you read about in Jane Austen....
