Hilltop Haven, Watson Street, Akaroa (Bachcare)

Boasting four bedrooms, light and bright living areas, and breathtaking views over French Bay and the Akaroa Harbour - this is Hilltop Haven!

Spacious and thoughtfully designed, this welcoming holiday home is an ideal place for two families to share on a getaway to Banks Peninsula.

The ground floor is a great retreat for the teenagers, or a private space for a family with young kids. A central living space is well equipped with a TV, couch, and small table, and enjoys a tranquil leafy outlook with a hint of sea views. A kitchenette and full bathroom offers all the essentials, and the bedroom with a queen bed and two singles comfortably sleeps up to four guests.

Make your way to the spacious top level of this two-storey home and be wowed by the outstanding views from the living and dining areas. In summer, open up the sliding glass doors and create that all important indoor-outdoor flow onto the sun-drenched wrap around balcony.

Whip up a salad in the fully equipped kitchen and take it outside to the covered alfresco dining space, ready to enjoy with your fresh Akaroa Salmon straight from the BBQ. At the end of the meal, pop the dishes in the dishwasher and enjoy a glass of wine looking out over the water.

On a winter getaway, light the fire and enjoy a fresh cup of espresso coffee as you get stuck into a good book, watch a movie with the family, or post your latest holiday snaps using the free WIFI.

At the end of a day’s adventures, retreat to the three bedrooms upstairs here at Hilltop Haven. Two rooms offer queen beds, while a third has two sets of bunks and a single bed. A bathroom up here offers both shower and bath options to suit everyone.

From Hilltop Haven it’s just 10 minutes walk down hill to the excellent swimming beach at French Bay. Continue wandering and you’ll find the Akaroa township and main wharf where a plethora of shops and eateries await. Why not book a boat trip to see the resident pod of Hector’s dolphins; this is the only place in the world to encounter them!

Pack your togs and your sense of adventure - a family holiday in Akaroa awaits here at Hilltop Haven!
