A cosy cottage tucked in the valley above Akaroa town and amongst a wild and wonderful garden. Warm and recently restored, it's a charming and comfortable character bach. Located in a sunny and secluded spot, but just a 5 - 10 min walk down to Rue Lavaud, the sea and everything Akaroa has to offer.

The space
Rose Cottage is one of a number of original colonial houses dotted across Akaroa. Built at some stage in the 1870s, it has been extensively restored and now serves as a much loved bach for our family.

The cottage is situated within well established gardens and provides a secluded spot to come home to after a day exploring Akaroa and surrounds.

There are two cosy bedrooms (one upstairs, one down), single bathroom (shower only; no bath sorry) and open plan lounge, dining and kitchen.

There is a fire and firewood that will keep you super toasty, if you need it, or otherwise there is a large heat pump and oil heaters that can be used to heat the house quickly.

The kitchen should have most things you need to cook something deluxe (if you need delicious produce, talk to Brendan, the local butcher).
