Interaction with guests
I am very happy to interact with guests as they wish. I love meeting people, and have travelled widely myself. I can also offer tips on what to see and do in this very special part of New Zealand!
Other things to note
Akaroa offers so much! If you want a quiet and romantic getaway, Villa Vangioni is for you. And if you want to go and explore the village and the harbour, or take a cruise to see dolphins, seals and penguins, I am happy to give you all the information you need. Last week we had a pod of Orca whales visiting the harbour!!
- A further bedroom can be provided on the same floor, to accommodate family members, for an extra charge.
I am a friendly and well-traveled person who enjoys meeting new people. I have lived in the UK, Australia, the US, Canada, Sri Lanka, Germany and France.
I love to cook, go hiking - New Zealand is one of the best places in the world for hiking! - and spend time with family. I also love music - my taste is quite broad - blues and rock 'n roll top the list, but i am also a fan of Puccini and Verdi, Latino salsa, and much more. I love this little corner of NZ: Akaroa is a very special place and I would love to help you discover it for yourself.
