Not a good option for enjoying outdoors as not many windows opened and the house is quite internal with just an old fashioned back door off kitchen and french doors off a bedroom. Good fire for cooler nights and spacious for large groups.

Having never been to Okains before, we weren't entirely sure what to expect. We arrived late after work on a Friday night at the beginning of winter and expected the house to be cold and begging for a fire to be lit. Scott had been in earlier in the day and lit a fire for us to ensure the house was warm when we arrived - such an incredible gesture that is so hugely appreciated. The house is big and very comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked, the water gets very hot which is perfect when the weather is so cold, and it's just a short drive or walk down to the big beach. There is a general store that keeps spontaneous hours but Akaroa is 20 minutes drive over the hill. You can't drink the tap water but there was a small tank of filtered drinking water there which was fantastic. The house heats up beautifully with the log fire and the heat pump and there's plenty of outdoor space. If you turn out all the lights and go outside on a clear night, you will see the most incredible display of stars. It's a stunning spot which has won a place in both of our hearts. We will be back. Thank you Scott!

We were so happy to stay as a big family group while attending a wedding in nearby Akaroa. The house was clean, warm and inviting with a great living area to all play board games. The fireplace was especially useful protecting us Aussies against the cold weather! All the windows look out to beautiful hills and the beach beyond, we only wish we had blue sky's to enjoy! Scott was so accommodating with clear and prompt communication. We had a wonderful time and would definitely stay again when we are next in the area. Thank you Scott!
