“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.”

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. (shortened version)
