Wedding Testimonial

Thanks so much for allowing us the privilege of having Akaroa House for our wedding weekend for the 3rd of March!
It was just superb! 

We had a great day despite the challenging weather. I really wanted photos in the lawn & garden, and on the veranda etc but unfortunately the weather would not allow. However, the photographer improvised well for us inside. As you also love weddings (!),  I’ve included a couple of photos that show some lovely parts of Akaroa House and Akaroa in general that you might be interested in taking a look at. Enjoy :)

Thanks very much again for the allowing us opportunity to stay in beautiful Akaroa House.

Kind regards,

Whatever the weather or season Akaroa House has provided very special memories for many brides and guests.


Time together

Ideal for gathering family and friends together in a large self-
contained luxury home. Five bedrooms and four bathrooms for your nearest and dearest to share any special occasion.

Well appointed - whether dining at home around the large dining table or al fresco at the barbeque Akaroa House' kitchen is well equipped with five gas hobs,  900mm oven, dishwasher and a great selection of crockery, glassware and cutlery. 

Akaroa’s fabulous selection of award winning restaurants and cafes are an easy stroll down the hill or enquire about in-house catering contacts.


We had a delightful stay at Akaroa House–you are to be complimented on the renovation and the suitability for a large family such as the Davys. The accommodation, facilities, etc were ideal. Our visit was an ideal opportunity for “bonding” time for our 4 children and their partners. We could not have wished for a better location.
