“We fell in love with this place. Amy was a wonderful host. The house was so lovely and warm. It was very old worldly but modern at the same time. The house itself is so pretty and full of character but has been styled and modernised, perfectly. The amenities were great. Bathrooms modern and very well done. There are the most spectacular views from all sides of this place. The ocean setting was just as pretty as the magnificent gardens surrounding the house. It has very Waiheke Island vibe here. Especially on the wee walk down to the water. The spa was perfection. You can tell Amy puts a lot of love into this place and has set it up so every guest will have the BEST stay possible.”
Set amongst the native bush, and with views over Akaroa harbour, your stay at Laneside cottage will be one to remember. The cottage is private and cosy and has all the amenities you will need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Make yourself a warm drink in the kitchenette ( tea, coffee and hot chocolate provided) , and enjoy the views from the comfortable kingsize bed, or whilst relaxing in the lounge area. A log burning fire and spa bath further complete the ambience.
“I have just returned from a truly magical 3 nights at this cottage, and already I can't wait to return. It offers complete privacy, but not at the expense of views; they are to die for! It is the cosiest, yummiest wee cottage, but it was bigger than I expected from the photos, with ample room to do yoga in front of the fabulous fire and a really well-stocked kitchenette. It was spotless and the bed was super-comfortable, with gorgeous bedding and pillows, and the ensuite was spacious, with a wonderful spa bath — so relaxing. There was everything I needed and more. I can't rate it highly enough. There is a track all the way to Akaroa from the cottages, but even better than that is the connecting track to the Children's Bay walk way — one of the most beautiful and special walks I've done on Banks Peninsula. I hardly went into Akaroa, as with that walk on my doorstep (with a lot to explore) and such a cosy spot to spend my days and evenings, I felt like I didn't even need to venture further... except to get exceptional thai takeaways!! Thank you, Bizz. It was such a special weekend of much-needed solitude for me xox”
The Double Dutch Guesthouse is a quiet, cosy & comfortable home set in the serenely beautiful Okains Bay. We are a 20-acre small sheep farm only a 15-20 minute walk, 5 minute bike ride, or 2 minute drive from Okains Bay Beach - often described as the 'Best Beach on the Banks Peninsula'. We are surrounded by lush volcanic hillsides...every angle is postcard worthy. The Guesthouse is the perfect place to get away from the hustle & bustle of the city, or a start or finish to your NZ adventure!
“Reagan went out of her way to make our stay special. Our youngest had a great time feeding the chickens with her and she tried her hardest to have us see the sheep but unfortunately the weather was not on our side. The fresh lavender on the beds and the aromatherapy were lovely touches. Spacious and homely, just what we needed after a cramped hotel stay.”
