This romantic hut is Ideal for someone traveling alone, or
at a squeeze
a couple.
Its point of difference?
It is so very close to the stream and so private
It has a wood burning stove .
There is a bath in the guests private bathroom along a track from the hut to the main house .
This hut has many walks starting outside the door ! For those who want electricity and internet the Verandah hut and Tree House and Studio apartment we have also listed on Airbnb.

The space
There is a kiwi hot tub wood heating up to 41 degrees! down by the river.
This is a big tub 800 litres of fresh river
water to be heated .for each booking ..so it incurs an extra fee of $75
..but
you have a big bath in your private bathroom back at the house and this is really the better option in the winter.
Guests can see the fire from their bed and also can see the river from bed if the door is open! The bed is a double and mattress is firm, some might say hard! Hut amenities include the little covered shuttered balcony, regenerating bush views glassware, cooking and eating utensils. Non 4 wheel drive vehicles park 50 metres from hut. No electricity - candles only .There is a private bathroom and inside bathroom and bath for this hut back at the house 100 yards away.
... guests chuckle when they see it, because the bathroom for the Hut by the River is bigger than the hut itself which is tiny and perfect for one
But as we said ..a squeeze for two !
You need to be happy to maintain your own fire to heat the hut and for water for hot drinks...in warm weatheryou can a thermos back at the house next to your bathroom there there is also bottled drinking water for you and
coffee sachets
so you can have a hot drink without making a fire early in the morning.

Walk-track Mecca
Akaroa has become famous for its variety of walks …easy to hard. !There are a number of walk tracks starting and finishing at the door to your retreat at Tree Crop Farm. One of the most popular tracks is the Woodills Track that goes north or south to the village cross country and the new Curry Reserve Track that traces the headwaters of the Grehan Valley Steam to the site of the Antarctic explorer Frank Worsley’s first childhood home. The information centre in Akaroa has photocopies of all walk tracks in the area for a small fee.
