This charming villa, situated in the heart of Wainui, is full of character.

With panoramic views overlooking Akaroa Harbour and the surrounding hills, this is a superb spot to relax and unwind. Come and enjoy the unique environment any time of year. This spacious family home has 4 (+1) bedrooms, a kitchen/living room with a large log burner, and another living/dining room with an open fire, both opening onto the veranda.

I look forward to hosting you in my delightful home and its surroundings.

The space
Linen and towels are all included and provided.

Sleeps up to 10 people as there is a sleepout in addition to the 4 bedrooms inside.

There is a very friendly house cat called Mars (like the planet). She will come and go as she pleases and there is always food available in the pantry to feed her.

Thank you for caring for my home during your stay.

Where you’ll be

Wainui, Canterbury, New Zealand

Wainui is very picturesque, quiet, and tranquil. Made up of holiday homes and under 100 permanent residents, there is a rocky shoreline and when the tide is out you can walk around it. You can fish from the beach and it is very safe for children. The water is cold but lovely. The surrounding hills are also divine, with pockets of native bush and some lovely walks where you can hear beautiful birdsong. A great place for dogs!

Just a 5-minute walk from the beach, there are plenty of options for activities during your stay. Fishing, paddleboarding, kayaking, swimming, and walking to name a few. There are also tennis courts in Wainui with tennis rackets and balls available.

Other things to do nearby:

- Purchase some fresh Akaroa Salmon from the Wainui wharf

- Visit the Shamarra Alpaca Farm

- French Farm Winery & Restaurant - a very short distance away
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in the summertime. Beautiful garden and grounds.

- Visit Barrys Bay Cheese Factory and Shop

- The Duvauchelle Hotel - a local pub with great food
