Beaufort House, Akaroa
Dating back to 1878, this historic home has been lovingly restored and is a peaceful retreat with stunning views of Akaroa. Set in pretty gardens, it is wonderfully secluded yet just a short stroll from the shops and restaurants of Akaroa Harbour.
Breakfast is served in the dining room or on the terrace which offers sweeping views of Akaroa. Tuck into freshly-baked croissants and homemade jams, or tasty cooked dishes. Meals are made using fresh local produce alongside vegetables and herbs grown in the house's garden. Canapés are served in the evening accompanied by a glass of wine grown in the house’s boutique vineyard.
There are just five rooms which are uniquely designed and feature fresh flowers from the garden, natural toiletries from New Zealand, free Wi-Fi and views of the surrounding hills, the garden, the vineyard or the sea.
