This small place is pure Nirvana. We'd flown into Christchurch, drove to Akaroa, and received a warm welcome from Felicity. It is people like her that made us fall in love with New Zealand. Our one regret was that we did not arrange to stay longer in Akaroa. Our room was fabulous with a jaw-dropping view. The kitchenette was handy, and there is a grocery store that is less than 5 minutes walking distance. The restaurant that is on the harbor (La Maison?) was lovely. Be sure to visit the War Memorial that is next to the motel in a small park. Truly - this was such a restful place.
