An amazing quiet place to stay just a short drive (10mins) from Akaroa. Very friendly hosts who were happy to help as required. The place itself is a lovely cottage with the sounds of the river running nearby. Keep an eye out for the wildlife around! A really lovely place that I would love to return too. A pool is available however the time of year wasn't great for us to use this. It would be great in summer and add a whole new dimension to the place! Wonderful stay and well worth it!
David was there to greet our family when we arrived and was kind enough to even chill a complimentary bottle of white for our arrival! The cottage was very clean and the beds were comfortable. We enjoyed cooking breakfast in the gas kitchen and steaks for dinner on the BBQ. A beautiful property with the hosts just across the way if you needed anything but supremely private all the same. The main street of Akaroa is literally a 3 minute drive over the hill. Easy to find and an easy place to stay. My wife and I along with our 2 kids were thrilled to spent 2 nights at The Gate House Cottage.
The cottage was just as described and very comfortable for two couples. One of our party has mobility issues and he had no issues with the ccottage except perhaps there could have been one extra step up to the verandah - it was quite a big step up. Our host was friendly but not at all intrusive. There are nice walks around the area with spectacular views if you walk up a few hills. It was lovely and quiet if you discount the birds and cicadas. We would stay there again.
