Where you’ll be

Akaroa, Canterbury, New Zealand

Look for us (akaroacoastalretreat) on Instagram for photos showing the amazing scenery you can expect to see when visiting Akaroa and Banks Peninsula. Akaroa is a small seaside settlement, 80 kilometres by road from Christchurch. The Maori name translates as 'long bay' and refers to the harbour, in the crater of an extinct volcano that has been flooded by the sea. The town itself is truly a coastal retreat, at the end of the only road linking it to the city. You will not find it by accident, passing through on your way to somewhere else. You must decide to come to Akaroa and when you arrive... the rest of the world will seem a million miles away.

During your stay

We like to greet guests when you arrive, show you to the studio and how to use the spa pool… so an indication of your likely arrival time is always appreciated.

We are happy to pass on tips about Akaroa and the peninsula so please message us through Airbnb or knock on our door if you’d liked to chat.

Otherwise, we respect your privacy and our interaction will be limited to a meeting by chance at the car park. Although attached to our house, the studio is quiet - you won’t hear our TV and we don’t hear yours… and private - not overlooked, so no need to block the view by pulling the curtains.
