We had a second floor apartment with two bedrooms upstairs. Lovely balcony off the sitting room to sit and enjoy a glass of wine and listen to the lap of the waves. Akaroa is a perfect little French Style village in the most scenic surroundings. Could be busy in the pique periods but off season it was fabulous. Lovely places...

The view over the harbour is uninterrupted, separated from the water by a small park. The unit was very well equipped and modern, A small patio off the living...

Bright and airy apartments in a traditional style of mainly timber construction. The Bruce Waterfront Apartments overlook the bay (Akaroa harbour) in a very pleasant location. The apartment we stayed in had a view towards the lighthouse from the lounge area of the main living space. This was a split level apartment with open plan kitchen, dining and living all...

We stayed here last weekend for a lateish wedding anniversary treat. We had a studio suite, upstairs, with the most wonderful views over the harbour. The service was excellent, and the room lovely. Highly recommend for a romantic getaway!!
