Where you’ll be

Little Akaloa, Canterbury, New Zealand

A quite sleepy bay with no more than 50 locals and a few batches, surrounded by farms. Fishing is good and the beach is very safe for children. Lots of walks and surrounding bays to discover with Akaroa just 20 minutes away.

We are Anna and Grant Waghorn. Our farm has been in our family for 5 generations and we currently farm the surrounding land round the property. We have raised our 3 children in the house but have had to move into town for schooling and further work opportunities for our family. We absolutely love the bay and are so excited to be able to share our home with you. We have put our heart and soul into the construction and development of the property, it has been a real labour of love. We own a small construction firm, so Grant built this house by himself and I assisted as much as possible. It is the perfect retreat for a family.
