“We just adored our few days in your beautiful Akaroa House! The house exudes such a homely feeling and is so beautifully appointed. 

We enjoyed such a lovely family celebration. Breakfast was taken on the deck outside, relaxing in the morning sun. Thank you again for our glorious few days in Paradise–we look forward to returning.”
