Daisy Hill Cottage for 5-8 people

Daisy Hill Cottage is a quaint hundred-year-old cottage situated high above the beautiful Akaroa Harbour. Enjoy stunning views, day and night from the deck, living room or even the spa pool. All of this is only a 3 minute drive or 15 min walk from the main shopping area of Rue Lavaud.

The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking, and barbequing, or you might prefer to sample the many restaurants of Akaroa.

For winter guests there is a cozy log fire and two heat pumps. Winter is also a great time to relax in the outdoor spa pool & watch the stars. Spa towels are included in the price.

Unlike platforms such as AirBnB, on LiveLocal there are no hidden costs for extra guests so this cottage has 2 listings. This listing is for 5-8 people. If you have fewer people, check out the listing for 2-4 people.

The neighbourhood: Daisy Hill Cottage is on the edge of Akaroa village, surrounded by a large wild garden, which affords privacy as well as stunning harbour views. Active guests can easily walk to the supermarket, restaurants & beach in 15 minutes, but a car is useful if you want to explore further afield.
