Experience Banks Peninsula in a truly unique way by treating yourself to a stay at our coastal retreat. Enjoy warm Kiwi hospitality by sharing our home with us or be as independent as you like.

The space

The studio is a private suite with a queen bed, table and chairs, ensuite bathroom, kitchenette with microwave, fridge, toaster and jug, WiFi, SkyTV including sport channels, stereo, DVDs, CDs, books and magazines. Very quiet and warm.

Guest access

Access is by its own entrance door adjacent to where you park your car. Guests have their own key and can come and go as they please.

Interaction with guests

There is also internal access to the rest of our house. We encourage guests to use our living room - enjoy our log fire - and deck as much as they like. Relax in our spa pool (jacuzzi) overlooking the harbour. A continental breakfast hamper (optional) can be provided for you to eat in your room, at our dining table or on the deck. If a breakfast hamper is required there is an additional charge of $15/person/night payable on arrival.

Other things to note

Follow us (akaroacoastalretreat) on Instagram for photos and suggestions of places to go and things to do while staying with us in Akaroa. During the summer we also run HARBOURSAIL, offering personalised cruises and/or sailing coaching on the harbour in a modern 10.2-metre FARR MRX yacht. Akaroa Harbour is famous as the summer playground of Hector's dolphins, the worlds smallest and rarest species. The Akaroa Coastal Studio is close to the start of the Banks Peninsula track and handy to other walks, restaurants, cafes, boutique shopping, museum, wineries and a variety of outdoor activities including scenic harbour cruises, swimming with dolphins, kayaking, golf, horse riding, tennis, bowls, sailing, fishing, and cycling.

The place is great. Location, hospitality, quietness and a lovely place to unwind and relax. The spa above the hill is fantastic too and worth the stay itself. Highly recommend a stay with them!!

Absolutely fantastic experience and hospitality. The spa experience topped things off whilst gazing at the stars and milky way sharing our own bottle of bubbles. We will be back at some stage for some more relaxation.

Fabulous place. The studio is welcoming, warm, well organised, really comfortable (the bed is amazing) and you have everything you'll need. The breakfast is generous! The view and the silence are astonishing! Great hosts, very kind and welcoming. They made us feel at our ease, like home. So kind to let us use the spa at night. Looking at the sky from the spa was something we will never forget. You can clearly see the Milky Way and, if you are licky (we were) also falling stars! Highly highly reccomended!

Absolutely stunning place, mixed with amazing hosts! Had a big camper van that needed some guidance with the driveway, but John was more then happy to lend a hand. Incredible views from the spa and bedroom, wish we had more time to stay longer!

Jenny and Jon's place is a little piece of paradise! A beautifully quiet and secluded spot. The views from the spa were incredible and the room was thoughtfully appointed with all we could need for our stay. John was a very welcoming and hospitable host. Thanks John!
